What depth of water are you fishing over? Youíll be surprised at what spread a spomb of boilies looks like after theyíve sunk 12 foot or so. Halved baits will work too as suggested. Or maybe try a smaller spomb and donít hit the spot all the time? Obviously itíll take longer with more casts but will give a bigger spread at no additional cost.

Got one spindley girly arm and the other is like Arnold Schwartzenagger's as a result. A beast of an arm.

That's not the spodding that's causing that

Ok thanks for the feedback chaps , it doesnt sound very much like they are fit for purpose. I'll try the half a boilie in the tail fin approach with the normal spombs first then.

There's a certain knack to using these things. I think they're exceptional at spreading your bait out. The one and only thing that properly boils my p**s with them is that they love to dive and can really knacker you out if you're banging out say 20kg over 100yrds + in one go. Got one spindley girly arm and the other is like Arnold Schwartzenagger's as a result. A beast of an arm.

Oh, and if you've got trees behind you that you even slightly graze, like the slightest of slight when you cast out, you'll get covered in spomb. Rats'll love you. Happened loads of times to me. If you ever hear some geezer really letting rip with the swearing and sounding really angry...like a mental...when 'a spomin', that'll most likely be moi...

I tried the TFG thing and didn't get on with it, I didn't like how hard you had to hit the clip to get it to open. If you want a reasonable spread of boilies without using a stick just use the mini spomb

The vlogger is not very happy with this thing....

Maybe when you fish closer in, but then for boilies you can use a throwing stick to get a spread....

Hi I use a spod a lot for putting boilies out but I am not so keen on the tight baiting they create. I have seen the TF airbomb and it claims to create what I'm looking for I.e a spread of boilies. Has anyone had any experience of using one of these or tried the half a boilie in a spomb tail approach? I want to purchase the TF one but need to know that it does what it says it does. Many thanks
