Originally designed as a technique-specific rod for fishing small hard-bodied lures, the action of the TwitchFreak is 'multi-loading' which is ideal for this style of fishing. Initially presenting as a fast action, once pressure is applied the blank begins to flex more in the mid-section which helps protect the hook-holds of small trebles and vastly reduces instances of pulled hooks.
The tip action has just the perfect amount of power for a ‘twitching’ retrieve that is so effective on many fish!
The lower section of the blank has the power to pull harder on the fish if that becomes required.
With all these blank attributes working together during the cast, the TwitchFreak exhibits excellent casting distance that is comparable with much longer rods!
This is the Light model, designed for casting and twitching lures in the 2-10gm range including crankbaits, shallow and medium divers, and also surface lures. Many other techniques are also successfully fished on the TwitchFreak due to the user-friendly, smooth multi-loading action.
The TwitchFreak performs perfectly with either mono (FC) or braid lines with mono leaders^. The KR guide train is a composite selection of Fuji’s titanium frames for corrosion resistance, in semi-micro sizes. Ceramics are Fuji’s very best Torzite for smaller guides combined with the very latest ‘SlimRing’ SiC ceramic in the larger guides to further reduce unwanted weight.
The TwitchFreak Lt incorporates Ian’s ‘Control Freak’ style handle, comprising Fuji SKSS reel seat over 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.
The Millerods TwitchFreak Lt is one of Ian’s most popular lightweight lure fishing rods and it truly is a special little rod!
^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!
