I get asked a lot about rod choice when fishing for winter carp and F1’s and when it comes to bomb and feeder fishing then you can’t beat the awesome Sphere Bomb +10% Power.

For ranges up to about 40m – common fishing on most commercials, then these rods are an absolute must. Casting extremely accurately, yet telegraphing even the slightest bite or liner. 

I tend to use them with a 20 gram inline bomb, or small feeder, which loads them brilliantly for accurate casting. The weight is also sufficient to prick any fish that picks up the bait, even when the fish are quite lethargic. 

You might think that such a light rod would not be suitable for larger carp, but nothing could be further from the truth. The brilliant parabolic action of the Sphere Bomb +10% Power enables me to play big carp hard without the risk of hook-pulls. Landing fish quickly and, crucially, giving me extra fishing time.

Just look at the pictures and you will see how forgiving this rod is, the action is brilliant and I can land carp faster than ever before. The glass tips blend perfectly into the blank, magnifying even shy F1 bites.

Over the winter I am fishing the Bomb and Feeder League at Lindholme Lakes, and for most matches that means having just two rods set up. Both are the Sphere Bomb +10% Power. The first with a straight bomb for popped-up bread or corn. The second carrying a small Hybrid feeder loaded with micros. 

If you are looking for the very best tools for these jobs then check out the Bomb +10%.
