CARPHACK: Streamline your Spomb

CARPHACK: Streamline your Spomb

At Linear Fisheries a Spomb Float is compulsory, but the addition of a foam ball behind the fins can cause wobble and hamper distance casting.

However, this great little hack solves these problems while keeping your Spomb 'legal' and safe from sinking in the event of a crack off.

We spotted this nifty modification in use by Tom Maker and are very grateful to him for allowing us to bring it to your attention.

2) Trim the Spomb Float on one side so it sits flush inside the Spomb. Don't trim off too much to begin with and test fit as you go.

3) Close up the gape on the wire and slide the doctored float down over the crook to secure it in place.

4) Bend the wire back through its original hole and bend it back in place.
