Boiliepults have an extra strong frame to accommodate the extra power latex required to deliver boilies.
boiliepult-main-640pxBy limiting the number of boilies in the pouch to say, five or six 16mm baits, you can achieve optimum distance and accuracy at around the 40m mark.
With just a bit of practice, single boilies can be fired into a tight area at long ranges:
16mm up to 60 metres
18mm up to 80metres
20mm baits up to 100 metres
At closer range, up to 30 metres, it is possible to soft-fire up to 15 16mm baits at a time by changing the grip and spreading your fingers around the top of the pouch.
Hold the pull tab with thumb and forefinger inserted into the loop. This is a strong grip which will allow you to really stretch the elastic and still get a quick clean release.
