Product Description

 

 

The SPOMB – A revolution in bait delivery!
Only very occasionally does a new product arrive on the carp scene and immediately seem set to create a revolution in
the way we deliver bait samples to a swim. Spods, Catapults, Throwing sticks, Baiting spoons etc work well for certain
situations and usually for specific baits but the Spomb is truly in a class of its own!
Aerodynamic and totally enclosed the Spomb is easy to cast and delivers 100% of your bait on target each and every
time - there are no holes to clog or lose bait like spods...

Key Features
• Accurate - deliver bait with pin point accuracy even at extreme range and in strong cross or head winds!
• No Loss - Unlike a spod the bait is enclosed and only releases on impact in the target area. No mid flight losses!
• Instant Release - The spomb springs open on impact and immediately releases all the bait without the need for
repeated tugs on the line.
• Any bait - boilies, dry or wet mix, maggots, worms, particles of all sizes , method balls or any combination of
baits can be loaded and delivered.
• Instant Retrieve - The Spomb opens on impact so can be retrieved immediately without waiting for it to
surface like a spod.
• Easy Retrieve - The Spomb 'skitters' across the surface on retrieve and unlike a spod does not 'bog down'.
• Fast - Cast, Retrieve, Load and Re-Cast the Spomb as quickly as any spod.

Technical
Spomb Ltd recommend 4lb - 5lb test curve rod with 45lb  15lb tapered leader. However in practical use we have also
used 3.25 and 3.50 Saxon rods to cast loaded Spombs up to 100yds with ease using 30lb Suffix braid on a Diawa
Emblem 5000 reel.
Unloaded weight 2¼ oz (60 gm). Loaded with corn, casting weight 6½ oz (180 gm).
On impact the Spomb will open releasing the entire contents immediately. It will then float for instant fast retrieve
across the surface and be clean and ready for re-loading.
FAQ
1. Does the Spomb need to land on the red button to open?
NO, not with a heavy load. If using lighter bait, such as bread or mixer, it would open better if you did let it go nose
first.
2. Can I feather the cast?
Sure - just leave the latch setting in the standard position as purchased
3. When should I turn the latch 180 degrees?
The red button latch is set up for the average angler and typical weather. The stronger latch is an option when fishing
in extreme weather conditions, strong wind and rain in your face or extremely hot weather. The World's longest casters
(120yds+) would use the stronger latch to prevent it opening prematurely on very long casts.
4. What happens if it fails to open?
This is a very rare occurrence. Ensure there is no bait fouling the mechanism and make sure you have the red button
set for the standard latch especially if wishing to feather it down. If this happens, just reel in and cast again!
5. Can I use wet or sloppy bait?
YES, as long as you fill the cargo area behind the button section. Nothing will be able to move to the button section
except for liquid, which will not prevent it from opening. The nature of the spomb results in the contents being washed
clean on impact.
6. Will it work on the 'clip'?
YES. For best results cast past your normal mark (as you would with a spod) and bring the rod back as it hits the clip
then lower the rod down so the nose enters first. Lift the rod straight away and reel in.

  1. Gone with the Current

    Excellent idea. Worked well.
    The problem with it is my line broke on the second day of use and it disappeared with the current - never to be sen again!!!!


  2. Great product

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Jun 2012

    I love the spomb! The spomb is great for dry baits like pellets and cooked particles or any spod mix, you can put in any type of bait that wouldn't work well in normal spods. It's very stable in flight and for me casts just as far as a korda distance spod somehow. It does require a spod rod with a high test curve and a good reel. I can only give it 4 stars because the hinge in the back will break after a lot of use but I always buy a new one because of the ease of use and no spod spill.


  3. would not be without this piece of kit.

    I cant say enough about the spomb, easier to fill than a spod and you dont loose bait out the backend. In the area I fish we have loads of ducks and they get used to the sound of the baiting spoon, catapult when the bait hits the water and hoard in on the bait, with the spomb they are afraid of it as it is reeled back in and dont bother to dive on my bait. I use it with corn, chicken scratch, and even wet mixed particle bait and it always seems to empty the load before reeling back, great product, dont be without one.
