REVIEW of MILLERODS
"Millerods are no ordinary rod. Refreshingly new and innovative in design and appearance. Based on a technique-specific approach, every inch and every component of each rod model is painstakingly selected and individually tuned. The blank actions are custom designed for each model, utilizing exclusively selected graphite blends to maximize performance. This allows Millerods blanks to be both sensitive and strong, with distinct characteristics and specific actions for every lure approach. Rods are aligned with the backbone for ideal power transition between casting, lure retrieve and fish-fighting, which delivers total energy efficiency.
Minimalist skeleton seats and split grip handles maintain the integrity of these amazing blanks, and help deliver valuable feed-back through every inch of the retrieve. The latest Fuji K-R semi-micro guide designs are used in multiple configurations to provide the smoothest line flow possible. This means better casting accuracy, further casting distance, longer line-life, and fighting properties, so even that it protects delicate hook-holds.
The product of exhaustive R&D collaboration between Australia’s first Elite Pro angler Carl Jocumsen and Australia’s premier rod designer Ian ‘Barra’ Miller, the Millerods Casting Rods are a game changer!" Tackle Warehouse
"SWIMSANITY is pure swimbait rod acton, compared to traditional Scandinavian rubber rods, Swimsanity has a softer tip and huge backbone, yet you feel the lure move and bites hit you like 1000 volts.
This is the rod which has been missing from manufacturers line ups. The action lets you cast far but excels also at short range, like fishing grass pockets or overwater rocky area precisely with a 300gr swimbait.
With my style of casting and fishing I am able to cast 8h straight with a 300gr swimbait without shoulder fatigue, and casting feels like tossing a jerkbait, the only way to describe the ease. It is noticeable that this rod manages a buster jerk as well as a Lucky lures Esoxv2, even though the weight difference is 200 grams.
Reel wise Revo Toro Beast 50 and 60, Conquest 400, tranx 400 and Ryoga Shrapnel balanced the rod better than a 300 series reel, for some it might be a minor detail but personally I get annoyed by having to ‘correct’ the tip during every cast.
A minus has to be when a smaller fish is hooked, it comes straight in. This is a teeny tiny minus since the rod is built for duck size lures and fish that feast on geese for breakfast.
Guides are Fuji K’s, good number of them and no wear visible after 3 months of fishing on brackish water of the Baltic.
Simply put – this is the rod for lures size of your friend’s catch and big fish, while keeping it smooth and a pleasure to fish with."
