Millerods SwordFight is Australia’s first totally purpose-built swordfish rod, designed in collaboration with Australia’s leading broadbill swordfish captains and anglers! The beauty of this rod, it makes the perfect tuna rod for Australian fishing too! From Bermagui yellowfin to Portland Bluefin Tuna, this rod is one you need as a serious game fisher.

Following the success of the original #50-80 SwordFight, Miller has also introduced this slightly softer version that has been used in custom builds for lighter lines including IGFA pre-test 15 to 24kg line classes. Using all the same components as Ian’s original custom builds, it is now readily available and also even more affordable!

This new slightly lighter model is ideal for average sized swordfish, or anglers that want an easier loading blank or as one of the best tuna fighting rods you can buy.

Not just another stand-up rod blank dressed up for daytime sword fishing, this exclusive design custom blank is perfect for chasing daytime swords;
The multi-loading action has the perfect amount of tip flex to clearly show the swordfish ‘bite’, so you can be ready for teasing and hook-up. The smooth fighting action of the blank doesn’t ‘shut-off’ too quickly which can pull hooks – instead it has the right amount of mid-flex to help absorb heavy head-shakes and remove harsh pressures from the hook-hold.

The low-down fighting power of these blanks kicks in just when it’s really needed to provide the angler with fire-power to take the fight to the fish. This blank is rated ‘#50-80’ and can fish a wide range of drag pressures all the way up to 15kg! Unlike other rods, it won’t wilt and bend into the reel seat when you need it to back you up…

As a custom built rod, the Millerods #50 SwordFight has already accounted for several large swordfish, including many fish over the 500lb mark and some huge tuna.

The unique loading action of this blank also makes for a very versatile rod that suits marlin and tuna fishing as well.

Presented in a custom cloth bag with separate compartments for rod butt and rod tip.
