The term ‘game-changer’ might have been coined for the Spomb. Almost overnight, it floored conventional competitors in the spod market and six years on, nothing has broken its stranglehold. Why? Because it’s both breathtakingly simple, yet supremely functional. Here is a product that genuinely improved our lives and now sells like hotcakes across the globe as a result.
It’s easy to load with any bait you might want to use, and unerringly delivers it to your spot, however far out that is – the only limitation is your own ability… Remember how hard it was to haul in a conventional spod? Those days are gone. Most are now familiar with the endearing sight of the Spomb dancing in across the water with such ease that it feel like you’ve been cut off!
The range has grown to encompass three sizes: Large, Midi and Mini, which are available in white or black and to improve buoyancy, you can also purchase a special Spomb Float, which doesn’t just make retrieval even easier, it also ensures your Spomb floats should you have a crack-off, meaning there’s a damn good chance you’ll get it back.
We really can’t see the king of baiting tools being toppled any time soon… long live the Spomb.
