To cope with long range casting, larger diameter reel lines and to have enough weight to work effectively as a bolt rig, bigger, heavier and more aerodynamic method feeders are needed.
ESP’s Mega Method Feeders are the answer! These feeders can accommodate as much bait as the popular sizes of PVA bag but by using the accompanying mould, are much quicker and easier than filling and tying up a bag.
They are available in two body sizes, Large and X-large with the large in 2oz and 3oz and the XL in 2.5oz and 3.5oz.
The design results in the lead in the flat base and the bait load distributing the weight into an aerodynamic bomb shape. This increases casting distance and improves accuracy even in strong crosswinds.
On the body of the feeder, the two largest bait holding ribs are well spaced and curved away from each other. This leaves a generous gap so the hook bait can be placed in the optimum position.
Another interesting feature is the rubber grommet which fits up inside the nose of the feeder and accommodates either an ESP Quick Clip (supplied) or a size 9 swivel if preferred. This grommet provides a semi-fixed interference fit for an effective but safe bolt rig set up.
A full load of method mix ground bait adds roughly 1oz (30g) to the large body and 1.25oz (35g) to the XL. This means the heaviest 3.5oz XL feeder weighs around 4.75oz when bait is added so we recommend a powerful carp rod of at least 3lb test curve to be used for distance casting.
