The SwimFreaK POWER is the latest addition to the comprehensive range of Ian's Aussie designed swimbait rod line-up. In the context of the Millerods swimbait rod range, this rod sits just below the BeastFreak in terms of casting weight power.
Primarily designed to fill the void for a swimbait rod that casts a light lure easily, yet still has tons of fish-fighting power, the SwimFreaK POWER just does that, being able to comfortably cast small swimbaits even under 1 ounce, yet be able to effectively fish structure-dwelling heavyweights such as Murray cod and barramundi.
Here are Ian's own thoughts on this new design;
"The original US SwimFreak model is a great rod with an action that's smooth as silk, but as it's a bass rod, it just doesn't have the power we need for our bigger predators. After Carl and I fished Blowering Dam last season and I did well on a 2oz Molix soft swimbait, I realised that I needed to design a better rod for casting this smaller type of lure but still retain stopping power for big fish. The SwimFreak POWER is that rod! I'm pretty excited about this one and I'll have it on the deck this season ready to go with that smaller swimbait for when a finesse presentation is needed... and it's going to be perfect for barra using the popular small swimbaits too!"
Light in weight and evenly balanced, this sensitive rod gives amazing feed-back and is perfect for any 'tip-up' lure retrieving technique as very little effort is required to fish for a long session. This makes it ideal for all the popular 'slow-rolling' retrieves that are so effective with small soft baits. And the 2pc design with detachable handle makes transport and storage a breeze.
The multi-guide train of Fuji 'KW' Fazlite guides runs true and easy, further enhancing the overall smoothness of this rod performance and is suitable for both braid/leader or FC lines fished 'straight through'.^
Ian’s trademark Control Freak style skeleton handle is super comfortable and also enhances the amazing sensitivity of this rod. The Fuji SKTS seat is set atop a blue carbon barrel, and custom-shaped x-firm EVA in the Millerods signature style blue Camoufish pattern, all finished with the ‘M’ logo anti-skid butt cap.
^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!
