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.
*Millerods recommends the use of the FG knot for connecting braided fishing lines to monofilament leaders. While the Salty Barra is fitted with an oversized tip-top to assist smooth line flow on and off the rod, all of Ian’s lure casting guide trains are selected with this connecting knot in mind.
