The Millerods Beast Buster has a long and proud history as a custom made rod range for both snapper and barramundi, and finally we now have our first release in the production range!
This is a special Beast Buster model as it covers a range of fishing as both a medium-weight snapper rod, and light-medium power barra rod.
When previously custom made to order, these have been different rod designs, however this model combines both attributes into the one rod model!
As a snapper rod, the Beast Lt-Med LongCast excels in medium depths with popular jig-head sizes of ¼ through ¾oz rigged with up to 7” tails – which makes it a very versatile weapon. The 7’6” length makes longer casts and line/lure control nice and easy for the entire drift!
As a barra rod, the Beast will cast a wide variety of soft barra lures from soft vibes through Slick Rigs and small to medium jig-head rigged swimbaits. Once again, the length makes casting easy and lure control at a distance is greatly enhanced which is great for fishing weed edges at any depth.
For either snapper or barra, this rod is an absolute standout in a couple of departments.
The balance of the Beast LMLC is amazing – the tip end will actually float up for you, making retrieves effortless and effective! And the light rod weight combined with the balance ensures this will be one of the most sensitive rods you’ll ever use!
The 2pc blank construction with removable handle means that transport and storage is now extremely easy.
When it comes to rod holder use, Ian has specifically designed this handle to be rod holder ‘friendly’ with a slightly flared, extra firm Camoufish EVA providing a buffer against movement.
The Fuji TVS reel seat and carbon hood with locking ring ensures the angler grip is both comfortable and secure, skeleton handle is super comfortable and also enhances the amazing sensitivity of this rod, while the fighting rest grip allows for comfortable fishing when a big fish is hooked deep and vertical.
The multi-guide train of Fuji ‘Slim Ring’ SiC ceramics gives excellent knot clearance in a lightweight guide set, fitted into the latest grey metal stainless steel frame finish.
^Millerods recommends the use of the FG knot for connecting braided fishing lines to monofilament leaders. All Ian’s lure casting guide trains are selected with this connecting knot in mind.
Ian Miller and his brand 'Millerods' have been leading the rod designing scene in Australia for decades. Ian's custom rods have pride of place in the collections of many anglers around the globe including keen anglers seeking every possible advantage they can get over both the fish and other anglers - as well as some of the highest profile fishing personalities in the country!
Ian's designs are so sought after that his personally handcrafted rods are incredibly hard to get, with keen anglers waiting months and even years to have their dream fishing rods created.
Now, Millerods introduces the 'Production Rod' range, comprising some of Ian's most popular designs in a fully imported fishing rod. Same blank designs, same components, same high performance and same distinctive appearance - all wrapped up in a super-high quality build!
So wait no longer - you can purchase direct right here!!
The Production Rod range includes some all-time best sellers, and some brand new models that Ian has specifically designed for their first release in this range of fully imported rods.
All-new blank actions and powers for highest performance in new blends of graphite to minimise weight yet maintain the robust features required. Most rod models are now 2pc for ease of travel and storage, and the construction format is 'removable handle' which provides the superior technical design of rod blank ferrules.
Ian's trademarked 'Control Freak' style handles are incorporated to maximise sensitivity and comfort while reducing weight and are 'minimalist' by design - no excessive material or weight are present. All seat parts are original Fuji Tackle components, with custom made trims.
These handle designs are presented in the Millerods instantly recognisable custom 'Camoufish' pattern in x-firm EVA material. This EVA is hard wearing, easier to fish with, and looks great!
All guide trains are original Fuji Tackle. This includes the latest 'Fazlite', 'Torzite' and 'Slim Ring' ceramics, as well as Fuji titanium frames on the light saltwater rod models.
All lure casting and spinning rods incorporate custom made Hook Keepers designed by Ian to be easy to use, minimalist, and totally tangle proof. Whether you're hanging a 1 gm soft plastic or 13oz swimbait on your rod, you can rely on the hook keeper being in the right place and the correct size for the lure.
The BeastFreak Australian model was the first of our Production Range which has now been joined by rods specifically designed for Australian bass, barramundi, snapper, mulloway, bream, Murray cod, golden perch, and other native fish, freshwater fish, and saltwater fish including big game billfish and tuna. More models will be added.
Ian always applies his decades of angling experience, as well as all his rod designing and building experience to every one of his custom rods - and the exact same level of commitment and attention to detail have been applied to these new rod designs - hand made in the highest quality rod factory of mainland China.
We thank the anglers who have supported these cutting edge rod designs, which are available for purchase on this website. And we’ll continue to offer Pre-Orders for new releases so our most loyal customers to get their favourite gear as fast as possible and at a reduced cost. Stay tuned!
Re-designing my rods for the production format has given me the opportunity to actually improve them. Many aspects of construction and design from the blank itself to the latest original brand-name componentry are now better than ever before! This has resulted in a range of lure fishing rods with very specific action and power, amazing balance, increased sensitivity, and a whole new level of performance!
I'm looking forward to being able to provide many more anglers with a fishing rod that can take their experience to the next level... by using a Millerod! Enjoy, and tight lines!
