Hi I struggled baiting up at a distance when fishing at dams were no boats were allowed and used my normal catapult and could only bait up accurately at 80m I then thought of this puppy a XL catapult it works excellent, I can shoot 3 bait balls up to 120m with great accuracy its extremely powerful so needed heavy duty pouch used my dad’s old felie shoes  what you think?

I saw a similar gadget at the 2003 World Carp Classic... but it was about a meter high.... lol!

Good idea NASH... at the end of the day if it does the job, why not?
I remember my first ever "spod" was an Energade bottle with the bottom cut off, tied through the sides... Wasnt very aerodynamic, but it worked, lol!!

I was looking at making a trebuchet to feed, but due to their massive amounts of weights needed it wouldnt work so well..

Plus the distance i needed required a car as my weight to launch my 20kg balls of bait.
