Ek het die naweek die Skyliner uitgesorteer - ek het gevind dat hy bietjie "wabble" (vir lack van 'n beter woord) waneer ek 'n prop ageter insit (prop = baitball om te keer dat al die particles uitval). Om die "wabble" uit te haal moet mens net sorg dat die laaste ry gaatjies van die rocket oop bly - dit maak hom baie meer stabiel en sodoende akuraat

Soos jy se, die spod moet nie te vol wees nie, jy kan hom vol maak tot by die begin van die stert vinne.

Less spillage and lot more stable in flight and it tips the load a lot easier. Weighs in at about 5oz then.

Improve quality of feed, deliver accurately and consistantly to improve your swim's quality

Hi Chaps just come off a session using the new Fox Exocet Spod Large and im very happy with it. Couldnt believe how stable and true this rocket goes. Casting it out on a 5.5 lb Fox Warrior Spod rod and with no effort reached 180 meters and deadly accurate. Some useless info for those of you batteling with spilage, i use a small plug of mielie bom to keep the bait set in the rocket. By doing this there is no spodmix spilage and you dont end up with a line of feed from the nape of your neck to the mark. Very important not to overfill the spod as this makes it unstable and also overloads the rod which in turn ends up shortening your distance. Must say the best spod since the Korda ive used for years. Fox also has the smaller version and this works well for shorter distance spodding up to about 140 meters. :fishn

Recieved the new Shimano spod rod 5.5test and must say at the price you pay its a s close to the Fox Spod rod as you can get and at half the price. Going rate is around R699 and worth every cent. Casting both large and meduim spods this critter gets a spod out at long distance and there is almost no diffrence between the Fox and the Shimano when it comes to performance. Very impressive.::respekt:

Informative Thread.

Aren't any of you using the 'Spombs'?
I have been using them in both sizes now for quite some time and don't see myself going back to spod's for the forseeable future?

Well worth a look IMO.

Yes I love the spombs and won't go back to normal spods either. They cast wvery well and take more bait.
Here in Australia most of the waters we fish are small so boats aren't really useful.

Got to test another spod this weekend (illegal in comp environment - but boy cna it hurl a load of feed !!) - the Nash Deliverance Dumpster (311gr delivery). It also has golfball dimples and ensures true flight and acuracy is good. I also tested the new Fox Excocet as well - I much impoved FOx spod (however it does not deliver great amounts of bait). Positive is the distance that this baby can go ! Here are some pic's
I use the same spod as in this pic and it is also my first spod and love it! I just need to get a propper spod rod as I am currently using my 10ft barbel rod... :fbash
Dont get the desired distance but hey, im not trying to fish someone elses margins.

Oops, there is no picture, but it is the Nash one on the previous page!
