Product Description

Made under the strictest standards and craftsmanship, Millerods are amongst the most sought after custom rods in Australia. Made under the careful guidance of master rod builder Ian Miller, each rod is handcrafted to provide the most “custom” of experiences, whilst maintaining affordability. Ian’s rods are uncompromising, his designs cutting edge. They have been proven the world over and are the proud possessions of anglers in every corner of the globe.

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.

 

BassFreak Medium 601

The Millerods BassFreak has long been a favourite of keen river bass lure casters as a custom made rod, with anglers using them in rivers and creeks from Queensland to Victoria!

Originally inspired by tournament casting rods for the 7gm spin-cast Accuracy category, Ian saw first-hand how accurately such rods can hit a target with a flat, direct casting technique. With bass fishing being very close to his heart, he knew immediately that the important precision characteristics of these tournament rods needed to be implemented into a proper fishing rod!

After extended testing on his home bass waters, the first models of this rod were released as the popular ‘Bush Bass’r rod and this model subsequently became the lighter and more sensitive Control Freak BassFreak.

Designed in a no-nonsense 1pc format, this rod is light in the hand and super-sensitive for extra feed-back from the lure, and has great balance for long repetitive casting sessions.

The BassFreak M is ideal for all small bass lures, especially surface lures, soft plastics and hard-bodies. The medium action and specific tip power means the lure can be ‘punch cast’ flat and direct to a snag target, and even through a tiny gap in overhanging branches.

At only 6’0” length, the BassFreaK Medium is also short enough to various creative casting strokes and get your lure ‘in, under, and around’ structure to deliver the lure to that all-important strike zone on the edge of the bank!

The multi-guide train of the latest Fuji Fazlite KR guides in sizes down to semi-micro runs true and easy, and further enhances the overall smoothness of this rod performance.

Ian’s trademark Control Freak style skeleton handle is super comfortable and also enhances the amazing sensitivity of this rod. The Fuji SKSS 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.

 

BeastFreak AU 7102

The Millerods BeastFreaK is a purpose-designed, Australian ‘swimbait’ casting rod.

At 7’10” overall length, the BeastFreaK is a serious casting tool, well suited to river, open water and impoundment fishing with lures in the 1-5oz (30-150gm) bracket. This model has a beautifully wide sweet spot of casting weights between 1½ – 3½ oz (50-115gm), covering a wide variety of popular big-baits including offerings from international brands such as Megabass, Savage Gear, River to Sea, ABT, Gan Craft, 22nd Century, Huddleston, Spro, Deps as well as home-grown big fish catchers from Nutterjuck, Mudeye, JJs Plague, Bassman, JHM, Thirsty and others.

Designed with detachable handle for convenience, our 2pc ferrule construction is so light and unobtrusive most don’t even realise it is not a 1pc rod. The highly regarded Millerods Control Freak handle maintains the sensitivity of this big rod, giving excellent feed-back so you know exactly what your lure is doing and also helps to maintain the lightweight integrity and amazing balance of this rod.

The BeastFreak is fitted with Miller’s ‘slick-flow’ 11+1 guide train of Alconite ceramic in Fuji’s latest ‘KW’ frames featuring the new corrosion resistant ‘CC’ finish. The multi-guide train also ensures smooth-as-silk operation during all phases of casting, retrieving and fish-fighting!

The BeastFreak is also fitted with our exclusive Heavy Duty Hook Keeper specifically designed by Miller, which can easily hold several ounces of lure, is also 100% tangle free, and positioned for easy access. Custom made, spiral-wrapped guide train of 9+1 is also available in an upgraded Fuji titanium frame SiC ‘K’ guide or Torzite format.

 

BladeFreak ULS 732

This rod is tuned for fishing small hard-bodied lures and has the perfect length, action and power for longer casting and superior line control if fishing deep or shallow flats using either braid with mono leader or FC lines*.

With a unique action this blank has the ideal amount of tip power to perfectly cast – and more importantly – perfectly retrieve small bladed lures in a variety of lift and hopping action. The mid-section is softer than usual, which cushions any erratic movement from the fish, effectively protecting the often delicate hook-hold of a small treble.

This action and power also makes the BladeFreak ULS an ideal choice for fishing small hard-bodied lures when extra distance is required such as sigh-casting to ‘mudders’ on the shallow flats. It is also an exceptional open-water rod for the lighter Cranka Crab lures. For all these techniques, the ‘tip-up’ rod retrieve is required and the BladeFreaK ULS has been fine-tuned for a specific balance to ensure this is effortless and enhances sensitivity.

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.

The BladeFreak ULS incorporates Ian’s ‘Control Freak’ style handles, 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.

 

VibeFreak 732

This unique action is suitable for a multitude of applications, and ideal for the primary techniques of fishing lipless crankbaits (‘vibes) in both hard and soft styles, and medium sized soft plastic lures rigged on jigheads. These two lure fishing techniques are extremely popular in both fresh and salt water, and now there is purpose-designed rod that fishes them with maximum effectiveness!

The VibeFreak is also ideal for a range of species including freshwater river and lake targets of bass and golden perch , and saltwater river and estuary species such as large flathead, mulloway, snapper and threadfin salmon.

The length of the VibeFreak adds a high degree of versatility, allowing for long casts in open waters such as lakes and estuaries, but also short enough in the tip length to fish many fish with an almost vertically under the front of the boat.

This tip length gives excellent lure control for all the popular retrieve methods of these typs of lures; ‘twitching’,’shaking, lifting and ’whipping’ are all easily made with the VibeFreak!

The 2pc blank construction with removable handle means that transport and storage is now extremely easy.

The multi-guide train of the latest Fuji Fazlite KR guides in sizes down to #5 runs true and easy, further enhancing the overall smoothness of this rod performance.

 

Beast Buster LMLC 762

The Millerods Beast Buster has a long and proud history as a custom made rod range for both snapper and barramundi. 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.

 

FinesseFreak LC 752

The FinesseFreak is ideal for all small bass lures, especially Beetle-spins, small spinnerbaits, top-water lures, soft plastics and hard-bodies. The length of the FinesseFreak has always been a strength of the design, allowing for long casts and excellent lure control which has made the rod a mainstay for lake fishing bass anglers.

Ian has now made this rod even longer, and with a slightly longer handle, the casting distance achievable has been increased as has the comfort of fishing while making repeated long casts – or employing other vertical methods such as drop shot, suspended soft plastics and even spoon fishing.

The 2pc blank construction with removable handle means that transport and storage is now extremely easy.

The multi-guide train of the latest Fuji Fazlite KR guides in sizes down to semi-micro runs true and easy, further enhancing the overall smoothness of this rod performance.

Ian’s trademark Control Freak style skeleton handle is super comfortable and also enhances the amazing sensitivity of this rod. The Fuji SKSS 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.

 

GrubFreak LT 732

This rod is tuned for spinning with soft plastics and has the perfect length, action and power for longer casting, superior line control if fishing deep or shallow flats using either braid with mono leader or FC lines.

With ultra-light power and a classic Medium-Fast action, this blank is perfectly tuned to fish a variety of soft plastic cast and retrieve applications from unweighted to hidden-weight to 1/4oz jighead rigged plastics.

This rod has also proven itself as a blade rod if you prefer the softer touch to avoid pulling small treble hooks.

The GrubFreak 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.

The GrubFreak incorporates Ian’s ‘Control Freak’ style handles, 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.

 

SwitchFreak UL 732

Specifically designed to be versatile – enabling the angler to ‘switch’ between one lure to another without needing to change the outfit – you can easily cast spinnerbaits; pitch, hop or drag a jig; bomb out a cast with a topwater and more, all on the same rod!

The secret lies in the multi-loading action of this exclusive custom blank, which is so smooth in transition from casting to retrieve to fighting that you’ll seamlessly switch from one technique to another.

Inspired by Ian’s US bass rod designs, this rod is a mirror image of his American SwitchFreak model, but in an ‘Ultra-Light’ power rating to better suit our lures and our native bass. The rod is also ideal for goldens and big redfin – in fact any of our fish that will respond to lures of these styles.

The weight and balance of this rod is so ridiculous that it is hard to believe that this is a 7’3”, 2pc bass rod! This also massively increases sensitivity which when combined with the faultless balance creates an outfit that almost floats in the hand which is priceless when it comes to a long session of pitching or jig casting. And the 2pc design with detachable handle makes transport and storage a breeze.

The multi-guide train of semi-micro Fuji Fazlite guides runs true and easy, further enhancing the overall smoothness of this rod performance.

 

XFLC 732

The Millerods XFLC is an all-time favourite in the spinning rod line-up for both fresh and saltwater fishing, and has many dedicated followers.

In recent years the XFLC has really made a mark in the Tournament bass fishing arena as a soft plastic rod for suspended schooling fish which can be notoriously fickle.

The light tip action is perfect for this type of fishing as it is extremely sensitive which helps in keeping track of what the lure is doing, and also the fish can take the lure without feeling any undue pressure from the rod. Lower down there is plenty of power that be called upon if structure is nearby!

But the XFLC is not a one-trick pony! It’s also fantastic for any light soft plastic presentation for other species including bream, golden perch etc and is also excellent for fishing light blades to all these species as well. As such, the XFLC has become the favourite light line all-rounder for many anglers!

Ian has now made the blank for this rod into a 2pc format with detachable handle, and made the action smoother for when treble hooked lures are in the equation.

The multi-guide train of the latest Fuji Fazlite KR guides in sizes down to semi-micro runs true and easy, further enhancing the overall smoothness of this rod performance.

Ian’s trademark Control Freak style skeleton handle is super comfortable and also enhances the amazing sensitivity of this rod. This rod is fitted with the Fuji KSKSS seat, which makes vertical fishing extremely comfortable but retains the sensitivity factor. This 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.

 

SwimFreak Power

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.

 

OneFreak 652

If you could only have a single medium weight baitcast rod for all your needs, it would have to be the ‘one’, right?

Enter the ONEfreaK!

Why is it the ONE and only?

This rod casts so easily, and is so well suited to a wide range of lure types in the most popular lure weights, it simply covers the most bases!

The ONEfreaK is so well balanced the tip actually floats and rises to get ready for the retrieve. This makes the rod ideal for any ‘tip-up’ retrieve including hopping, slow rolling and surface presentations. But it doesn’t rule out ‘tip-neutral’ or ‘tip-down’ retrieves, it simply makes the rod easier to use, and more sensitive overall!

In fact, Ian designed the action of this rod primarily for twitching hard bodied lures, so the tip has a little bit of power to move the lure, but the mid section folds right away to absorb the shockwaves produced by a fighting, jumping fish. This protects the shallower hook-holds of trebles.

The end result is a mid-length, mid-weight baitcast rod that is not only a pleasure to use, but also very effective with all lure types!

Making this rod even smoother is the generous 10+1 guide train. This ensures that all line movement – casting, retrieving and fighting – has reduced friction and is as even as possible. The KW guide train uses Fuji’s latest ‘Slim Ring’ SiC ceramic so the rod performs with braid lines with mono leaders*, as well as ‘straight-through’ monofilament lines of either FC or nylon.

Ian’s own custom designed and exclusive anti-tangle hook keeper is positioned exactly where you need and will keep any type of lure secured between stops.

The lightweight blank sensitivity allows you to feel that your lure is working properly at all times, and the Control Freak skeleton handle enhances this sensitivity with every vibration of feedback coming straight into the hands.

 

Salty Barra LC 63

The high-performance Millerods Salty Barra Long Cast is now available in the production line-up!

This is one of Millerods most versatile and popular barra rods – and we’ve upgraded and updated it for this release!

Fine-tuned for longer casting of your favourite barra lures – either soft plastic or hard-bodied – for both river and impoundment situations, it’s a great length, action and power for combining casting accuracy with casting distance, and fish extraction in tough structure.

This latest blank is designed with a detachable handle to make it user-friendly for the travelling angler while the 1pc ‘blade’ gives maximum performance.

The balance of this new Salty Long Cast is incredible! This makes it perfect for any finesse presentations such as hopping and slow-rolling soft swimbaits, as the tip actually ‘floats’ upwards in the hand, meaning the rod actually positions itself ready for ‘tip-up’ retrieves.

The tip is so sensitive, you simply won’t miss a bite and you’ll be able to tell exactly what is going on with the lure during the entire retrieve. And it’s also ideal for surface presentations and of of course twitching bibbed lures.

With an easy casting tip action, and a positive blank taper that unleashes the ‘down-low’ fighting power, the ‘Salty LC’ has a great reputation for many saltwater and freshwater situations.

This rod performs with braid lines with mono leaders*, as well as ‘straight-through’ monofilament lines of either FC or nylon. The KW guide train uses Fuji’s latest ‘Slim Ring’ SiC ceramic with stainless steel frames for corrosion resistance.

Ian’s own custom designed and exclusive anti-tangle hook keeper is positioned exactly where you need to keep your lure secured between stops.

The Salty Barra incorporates Ian’s latest ergonomically styled casting handles, comprising Fuji ECS reel seat with a custom carbon locking hood, and custom shaped x-firm blue Camoufish EVA, all finished with the ‘M’ logo anti-skid butt cap. This handle gives the angler a comfortable and positive grip for the rigours of barra lure casting!

 

Salty Barra 582

The Legendary Millerods Salty Barra is now available in the production line-up!

This is one of Millerods all-time popular and enduring barra rods and we’ve upgraded and updated it for this release!

Fine-tuned for casting your favourite barra lures – either soft plastic or hard-bodied – for fish in river situations, it’s the perfect length, action and power for combining casting accuracy with fish extraction on tidal water.

This latest blank is designed with a detachable handle to make it user-friendly for the travelling angler while the 1pc ‘blade’ gives maximum performance. In fact the balance and sensitivity of this new Salty Barra has to be felt to be believed!

With an easy casting tip action, and a positive blank taper that unleashes the ‘down-low’ fighting power, the ‘Salty’ is well known to be user-friendly for casting and retrieving, while also providing the angler good power for fish fighting. Basically, it’s your perfect barra river rod!

This rod performs with braid lines with mono leaders*, as well as ‘straight-through’ monofilament lines of either FC or nylon. The KW guide train uses Fuji’s latest ‘Slim Ring’ SiC ceramic with stainless steel frames for corrosion resistance.

Ian’s own custom designed and exclusive anti-tangle hook keeper is positioned exactly where you need to keep your lure secured between stops.

The Salty Barra incorporates Ian’s latest ergonomically styled casting handles, comprising Fuji ECS reel seat with a custom carbon locking hood, and custom shaped x-firm blue Camoufish EVA, all finished with the ‘M’ logo anti-skid butt cap. This handle gives the angler a comfortable and positive grip for the rigours of barra lure casting!

 

TwitchFreak LT

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!

 

SwimFreak AU

Joining the extensive Millerods Aussie designed swimbait rod line-up is the new SwimFreaK AU. This is a finesse swimbait rod that suits open water applications for species in the salt, and hard body fishing for cod in the fresh.

With this rod, we’re excited to introduce Aussie anglers to the G-Clutch handle! Based on an innovative new reel seat design that is totally minimalist – in fact the reel seat has uninterrupted blank exposure underneath – which when coupled with this light weight blank means that sensitivity is off the charts! And there are absolutely no exposed locking hoods, nuts or threaded sections either. So it comes to hand so comfortably it’s actually difficult to feel where the handle finishes and the blank starts!

In the hand, this rod is light in weight with a super-easy casting action and an amazing balance point – this all creates a rod that is a pleasure to use with the big lures, even for long sessions.

This AU model has all the features we need in an Aussie swimbait rod; detachable handle makes for easy storing and transport, while the larger guide train comprises 2 foot titanium frames. These are more robust, large enough for easy leader knot passage, super light in weight and corrosion proof!

While it casts up to 70gm lures easily, this is not an overly powerful rod which makes it ideal for big fish in open water and we’ve done a lot of testing and development in the estuaries and inshore waters of the NSW coast. ‘Croc’ sized flatties and mulloway are the perfect target for the SwimFreak AU, and it’s ideal for all medium sized swimbaits, whether they are soft baits, hard baits, or deep sinking. (Also ideal for topwater too…)

In the freshwater, this rod has also been used for great success with bibbed hard-bodied lures targeting Murray cod and has already racked up a tournament win! And it’s also a truly easy rod for casting spinnerbaits.

At 7’8” length, the SwimFreaK AU is enough rod to produce the long casts needed in open water, but also short enough to handle easier in small craft.

The multi-guide train features 12 guides plus tip-top. This further enhances the smooth action, easy casting of this custom blank which is a blend of graphites specifically selected to maximise performance across the applications Ian has designed this rod for.

The ergonomic G-Clutch handle also features extra-firm EVA to transfer energy and avoid hand fatigue, while the rounded EVA butt cap allows the angler to leverage the rod agains the body when fighting big fish. This is one heck of a weapon for the swimbait anglers!

 

Bassfreak XH

Big bass in tough water are a different beast. Always seeming to punch above their weight, they don’t know much give in the system to be able to tow you back deep in the snag, bury you hopelessly in the weeds, or just totally destroy you all ends up!

Yes, some may say, “better to have hooked and lost, than never to have hooked at all”.

But sometimes, enough is enough…

If this is how you feel – or you just hope not to this way – this rod will be of big interest!

But back to Ian’s ‘happy place’ – his local bass stream – which not for the first time has helped fine-tuna a new fishing rod.

Where the bass are willing but never easy, and just get tougher and tougher as they grow bigger. And where the river often seems to be more strewn with snags than clean bottom This is no place to muck around when it comes to extracting bass – especially when they are so tricky that you literally have to give them all the advantages just to tempt a strike.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t finesse them – in fact sometimes that approach is often a requirement. And after being handed one-too-many lessons by these big bass, enough was enough, and the ‘XH’ was born!

The Millerods BassFreak already enjoys plenty of support from keen river bass anglers all along the eastern states – and now it’s time for the new BassFreaK XH to things them to the next level!

Exhibiting the same lightness in the hand, the same accuracy of casting into tight areas, the same ability to throw a wide variety of lure sizes and types, the same balance so helpful for long repetitive casting sessions. Indeed, the same no-nonsense design. But with a massively boosted fire-power for bass extraction!

The multi-guide train of the latest Fuji Fazlite KR guides run true and easy and further enhances the overall casting and retrieving smoothness of this rod performance.

Ian’s trademark Control Freak style skeleton handle is super comfortable and also enhances the amazing sensitivity of this rod. The Fuji KSKSS reel seat has an important addition for the XH model; a carbon locking hood which gives a positive lock on the reel and most importantly helps with hand-leverage when hard-casting lures, and when hanging on tight to ‘persuade’ that giant fish!

So, get ready to place a topwater perfectly in the strike zone; run that Flashy through the darkest, gnarliest part of the snag; get down and dirty around the thickest weed beds!

 

Switchfreak 732

The landscape of freshwater lure fishing in Australia is changing. As the influence of bass techniques from the USA bass fisheries takes hold, our own approach to fishing is changing.

Along with that comes new tackle designs to enable us to fish imported techniques on our local fish to their full effect… Enter the SwitchFreak!

Specifically designed to be versatile – enabling the angler to ‘switch’ between one lure to another without needing to change the outfit – you can easily cast spinnerbaits; pitch, hop or drag a jig; bomb out a cast with a topwater and more, all on the same rod!

The secret lies in the multi-loading action of this exclusive custom blank, which is so smooth in transition from casting to retrieve to fighting that you’ll seamlessly switch from one technique to another.

Inspired by Ian’s US bass rod designs, this rod is a mirror image of his American SwitchFreak model, but in the ‘Aussie’ style to better suit our tackle preferences. The rod is an ideal ‘cross-over’ for big goldens and Murray Cod – in fact if you are after a single rod to fish all the latest techniques in your local river, this is the rod!

In the US, this rod action is used for spinnerbaits, jigs and Frog lure fishing… and it is just at home with these techniques in Australia – in fact as a river ‘Frogn’ rod, it has no equal!

The light weight and true, even balance of this rod makes it hard to believe that this is a 7’3”, 2pc med/heavy weight rod! This also massively increases sensitivity which, when combined with the light tip weight creates an outfit that almost floats in the hand. This is perfect for any ‘tip-up’ lure retrieving technique as very little effort is required to fish for a long session. And the 2pc design with detachable handle makes transport and storage a breeze.

The multi-guide train of 11 guides plus tip-top in Fuji ‘KW’ Fazlite guides runs true and easy, further enhancing the overall smoothness of this rod performance.

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.

 

ONEfreak POWER

Designed due to popular demand!

Since its release in 2020, the ONEfreaK has a developed a loyal following in the lure casting world. And now that our impoundments are back on line, there are more and more situations opening up for a rod in this unique style, but with more capability.

Enter the ONEfreak POWER version!

Same easy lure casting ability, same length, same easy-loading action that is designed to help protect hook holds in angry fish.

But more low-down power for dealing with big fish amongst the timber!

The ONEfreaK POWER model retains that excellent balance to keep it easy to fish with, and the multi-loading action keeps it user-friendly for lure casting.

One of the primary applications of this design is for twitching hard bodied lures, so the tip has a little bit of power to move the lure, but the mid-section folds right away to absorb the shockwaves produced by a fighting, jumping fish. This protects the shallower hook-holds of trebles.

The end result is a mid-length, mid-weight baitcast rod that is not only a pleasure to use, but also very effective with all lure types – and now it is even more robust than the original!

Making this rod even smoother is the generous 10+1 guide train. This ensures that all line movement – casting, retrieving and fighting – has reduced friction and is as even as possible. The KW guide train uses Fuji’s latest ‘Slim Ring’ SiC ceramic so the rod performs with braid lines with mono leaders*, as well as ‘straight-through’ monofilament lines of either FC or nylon.

Ian’s own custom designed and exclusive anti-tangle hook keeper is positioned exactly where you need and will keep any type of lure secured between stops.

The lightweight blank sensitivity allows you to feel that your lure is working properly at all times, and the Control Freak skeleton handle enhances this sensitivity with every vibration of feedback coming straight into the hands.
