    Using this stick for tight close quarter fishing on big black bream and has handled them with ease. Still enough sensitivity for light lures as well.

    The 'come here' stick

    As an all-round light light tackle tragic, it can be very hard to find a stick that will fish finesse lures effortlessly in a situation of pure brutality! This stick is perfect for fishing tight cover with heavier leaders. For targeting species such as XL Estuary Perch, Bass, Bream and even Snapper up to several kilos, the BassFreak XH punches above its weight. You can lock up, go hard and not have to worry about being shredded by fish that once had most things going in thier favour. I really did find this rod suits a 3000 size reel and PE1 braids perfectly. If you are looking for that 'come here' stick in your estuary quiver, look no further!

    Millerods BassFreak XH 601

    Tight water suprise! A Sensitive persuader!

    • 6’0″ 1pc
    • Medium action
    • Recommended line 4-8kg
    • Ideal lure range 5‑18gm
    • The latest Fuji Fazlite KR semi-micro multi-guide train (7+1 with #5 smallest size)^

    Ian Miller has designed the ALL NEW BassFreak XH as a rod not only to extract the trophy big bass from the tight structure and heavy weedbeds, but packaged it into a rod that is light in hand, sensitive and responsive. This is everything you love in your performance rod, but it will extract the one that matters and get it landed! An ideal rod for kayak and canoe fishing, but also anywhere you need a shorter rod due to tight access!

    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!

    Ian’s recommendations:

    -Small-medium size spin reel (eg Shimano 2500)

    -Up to 10lb braid

    -Up to 16lb leader^

    -Very heavy drag setting and hang on! (“Don’t high-stick next to the canoe though!!”)

    ^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.
