Frequently Asked Questions

Does it have to land on the button to open?

NO, not with a heavy load. If using lighter bait, such as bread or mixer, it would open better if you did let it go nose first.

Can I feather it down?

YES, but make sure red button is on standard latch setting - as first purchased.

When should I turn the red button round, 180 degrees, for a the stronger latch?

The red button latch is set up for the average angler and British weather. The stronger latch is an option when fishing in extreme weather conditions, strong wind and rain in your face or extremely hot weather. The World's longest casters would use the stronger latch to prevent it opening on very long casts.

What happens if it fails to open?

Ensure you have the red button set for the standard latch. Especially if wishing to feather it down. If this did happen, just reel in and cast again.

Can I use wet bait?

YES, as long as you fill the cargo area behind the button section. Nothing will be able to move to the button section except for liquid, which will not prevent it from opening. When reeling, on retrieve this washes and cleans the Spomb.
