1. Spod Bucket Adaptors
You can have the best gadget in the world for delivering your spod mix – the Spomb – but less than brilliant accuracy if you have to stop and bend down to refill it every cast. This kit turns your standard bait bucket into one of super-Spombing-awesomeness by hiking it up to waist height thanks to the bucket fixings and three storm poles which screw into them.
“GIMME”: Adaptors, £14.99; Complete Kit, £39.99; cygnettackle.co.uk
2. Distance sticks
These lightweight, matt black sticks come in two sizes, Standard and XL, and unlike their competitor’s offerings, these are super smooth and straight so your line unwraps in the same condition you wrapped it on. Plus, because of those two attributes the line just instantly lifts off the sticks, meaning you don’t have to move the rod back and forth which you do with all the other copies on the market.
“GIMME”: £12.99 and £19.99
3. Wide Frame Catapult
Traditionally catapults are a fickle baiting up tool, hurting your hands and wallet alike. But this now three-years-old ‘pult is clearly up for the challenge. It’s powerful yet gentle on your knuckles; it’s accurate yet effortless; user-friendly yet tangle-free; and it’ll happily fire out any size of boilie or particle bait you’re feeding. Available with either a medium or large pouch.
