Spod rods enable you to heavily bait an area of your swim quickly and accurately, using spod (or spomb) rockets. This means they are often the preferred choice of big carp anglers, a spod rod is very powerful, usually with a test curve of at least 3.5lb. A good spod rod in the right pair of hands could translate to an increase in catches, as it enables you to maintain a bed of bait around your hookbait, it also combats the impossible task of firing particle baits further than 20m, you can load anything into your spod and by utilising the line clip, present bait accurately every time. This, in theory, holds the fish in your swim for several hours, increasing the likelihood of catching. These rods are built to be cast regularly throughout the day, so are lightweight and robust. However, if you want to maintain casting accuracy over 100 yards you might be advised to go for a slightly stiffer rod with a test curve of around 4.5lb – although it also depends on the reel you pair your spod rod with and environmental conditions.
