The Gardner Boilie Ultrapult is a good one 👍

I'm very surprised nobody makes a a catapult to put a single boilie a real long way. I can't use a throwing stick because it buggers up my gammy elbow.

This is very interesting, Iím currently having a nightmare with creamino being too soft to stick out maybe Iíll try using it frozen and keep in cool bag.

I roll my own baits and they are designed to be soft.

If using a catapult I take them frozen and keep frozen for the majority of a short day session so I can catapult 70 yards or so.

I have gone through loads of catapults and never hit 70 yards. I'd be happy with that mate. Catapults are made to break imo. But my latest is the esp big pult which is still going strong and has probably the best distance on the ones I've used. This is closely followed by the fox power guard one.

I found an old small drennan match catapult and decided to try it. Can only fit one boilie in at a time but the small pouch and single bait goes for miles. Also the comments about throwing
Stick is correct however my bait is too soft for stick use which is really annoying

Hunting pults like the old black widow / Diabloís. But TBH a throwing stick would be better

Drennan boilie pult but as others have said I think a throwing stick is best option

Your best bet is throwing stick or pulling out bigger baits. 18s will go further

I would use a throwing stick to be honest.

I've got the ESP catapult and I can get to 70 yards at a push with 15mm boilies,but are there any catapults out there that can get an extra few yards?
