Balance Tuned: Special attention has been paid to the fishing application of each Ian Miller U.S. Bass Rod, and the balance required during each lure retrieve. This improves sensitivity and makes the rigors of a long day on the water as easy as possible – don’t miss that bite on the last cast through fatigue!
Comfort Grip: These rods come to hand easily and comfortably, with each model fitted with handle parts only where and as they are needed…The result is a rod that’s light in the hand with further enhanced sensitivity, and this allows you to forget the rod and focus on the fishing!
Sensitivity +: Fuji skeleton seats and minimal handle designs mean it’s almost impossible to hold one of these rods for lure retrieval without your hand contacting the blank – and this helps deliver valuable feed-back that these amazing blanks provide for every inch of the retrieve!
Swing Time: You’ve steered the bass alongside, and now you can use that momentum to swing it in the boat! When there’s no time –or allowance– for using a landing net, swing the bass on-board using the ‘Swing Grip’ – a true innovation from Jocumsen and Miller!* (*When swinging fish on board, the rod should not be over-loaded with a high rod angle. As fish get larger, the rod angle during the swing needs to be lowered.)
LRP: Each rod in the range has been fine-tuned to its specific performance criteria. Jocumsen is an expert in Long-Range Presentations, and his criteria demands these rods fire off a cast to a distance that has the fish unaware of your presence and ready to bite!
Unique Transitions: Unique Millerods blank actions deliver the smoothest of transitions between casting, lure retrieve and fish-fighting. This means user-friendly use and extreme sensitivity, as well as imparting control through every phase of rod use without loss of power transmission.
Custom Blend: Ian Miller's custom blanks are made from blended graphite materials which are selected by assessing the application, action and power requirements for each and every rod. This results in a ‘freestyle’ approach for blank designing, allowing every rod to have its own unique character, and it's own amazing high performance without loss of robustness. All the while still confirming to the strict Millerods philosophy of lightness, balance and sensitivity!
SlickFlow Ceramics: Each and every rod is fitted with the very latest Fuji frame designs in Alconite semi-micro guide ring sizes. These multiple configuration guide trains remove line angles and provide the slickest line flow possible, meaning better casting accuracy, longer line-life, smoother drag slip and fighting properties so even that you’ll pull fewer hooks!
Dynamic Impact: The appearance of Millerods is as obvious as it is distinctive. And while they may look striking on the deck, one thing is for sure, the performance of these rods when in the hand and amongst the action is true game-changer!
Keep it!: Ian Miller's custom shaped hook keepers keep every specific hook and lure shape, without tangling line, letting go, or getting in the way of your grip!
Custom Sleeve: Each Millerods is supplied with its own rod sleeve – custom made for this rod range by Millerods!
