The Waverunner Atom is the baby brother of the Waverunner Mk4 and the mid-sized boat in Waverunner’s standard range. Designed with British carp fishing in mind, although it is also perfect for use on the larger continental waters, this boat is compact and easy to transport – thanks to its padded handle. Ideal for both small and large waters, this bait boat has a range of 400m (weather and water dependent) and a run time of up to two hours, operating at top speed. This makes it ideal for a long weekend down at the bank.
If you’re looking to send out a reasonably large quantity of bait quickly and accurately, the Waverunner Atom is the perfect choice. It can hold up to 1.5kg of bait in its single hopper, enabling you to drop a huge amount of freebies with precision. This hopper is operated by an electromagnetic system.
This means that you’re never in a scenario where the catch of the hopper system becomes caught. Not only does this mean that you can always be confident that your bait is going to be dropped exactly where you want it but it also makes refilling and latching the hopper door easy on the bank. Unlike other bait boats, which require you to feed your hook bait up into the main hopper (potentially causing damage to your line), the Waverunner Atom also has a reliable magnetic hook release system.
This allows for the independent release of your hook bait, giving you the versatility to drop your hook bait directly on top of your main load of bait or at a slight distance.
This benefits those anglers who are looking to target huge fish, as it is often said that large carp will hang back form the main bundle of freebie baits.
The independent hook release system allows you to be as strategic as you like when positioning your bait and it enables you to pull your hook bait so it is slightly shy of the main pile of freebies.
Lights on the front and rear of the boat, including two huge headlights, means that you can use this boat accurately even in low light or night time angling conditions. The colored LEDs also very clearly indicate the direction in which the boat is moving. This makes it perfect for those situations when you get a take in the dark and want to re-bait or replace your hook before you go back to bed.
These headlights are operated using the handset, so you can switch the lights on or off on the water depending on how stealthy you are attempting to be. One of the most impressive features of this baitboat is the fail-safe boat-return mechanism. This means that if ever your boat ends up out of reception of the handset it will cut off one of its propellers, causing it to turn 180 degrees until it returns into range.
This is a propeller operated boat and the Waverunner Atom has been fitted with large weed guards in order to prevent any tangles. You can direct the power of the boat into either of the propellers or split it evenly between the two, allowing you to make precise adjustments in windy conditions.
The propellers are significantly quieter than modern jet propulsion systems, too, enabling you to be stealthy on the water. They also allow you to pick up a good speed, making it quick and easy to get three carp rods out into the water when you need to.
If you are looking for an all-purpose, highly versatile, baitboat then you need look no further than the Atom from Waverunner.
