Following your previous post I had ago with a fox spomb I have recently bought. I see exactly what you mean, it took a few minutes with a Stanley blade to remove the brown lug. I also had to remove a slight bit of the orange tail and a little bit of the actual lid to allow the lid to rest on the tail fin. Fraction of a mm removed from both was all that needed.
Hopefully this will be a game changer as I find the fox spomb the best for accuracy and distance.

I've never figured out how to do pics on here but its just a case of cutting off the the bit of plastic behind the 'gate',I use a Stanley knife.
Do it a bit at a time until the 'gate' fully stops against the fin when it's opened. It prevents the gate from stopping hard at 90 degrees when it hits the water.

Hi Bob 👍

I'm assuming you're talking about the hinge body? Cut the bit away where it's squared sonic does as you say?

You got.any pics you can post up?

They always break there due to the force of them hitting the water, I'd broken loads. The solution is to cut away the 'lug' that is just below the fin to enable the gate of the Spod to rest against the fin when it's opened!
Quite hard to explain but does work as I've not broken one since and worth doing as I still think they're the best for extreme range.

Already have mate. Got the Korda Skyraider. Much better as they don't smash into smithereens. Don't get me wrong, the Fox medium Impact goes really far if need the range, just that they're not great for what I'm doing.

Never said I wasn't clipped up. I'm clipped up at 160yds but baiting an area from 140yds and about 40 or so yds wide.

They do blow up even clipped up, had a few go on me that way.

"Spray baiting", in the dark, not clipped up, at distances capable of smashing the spomb to bits. I think that gives you the answer

You can feel when a cast is slowing down though. Are you just casting all over the place?

I'm baiting a large pit at night. Try breaking the cast in the pitch black and you can't see it.

How about braking the cast before the impact spod hits the water? You can still spray bait without allowing the spod to enter like a depth charge annoying everyone around you, making yourself look like a noddy and protecting the baiting device
