The AKIOS AIRPOWER 435 GTR – Supreme All-Rounder Fishing Rod
AKIOS AIRPOWER – The Three Piece Beast!
Released in 2018, the AIRPOWER RXP, often referred to as ‘the 3-Piece Beast’, quickly achieved cult status amongst anglers largely due to its phenomenal casting power and exquisite fishing tip. The AIRPOWER RXP SRS, a sliding reel seat version, soon followed offering even greater versatility. Requests for a two-piece version have been constant throughout. Well, AKIOS listened, and have now released the all-new two-piece AKIOS AIRPOWER GTR. When developing the AIRPOWER GTR there was one primary objective, to develop a true all-rounder fishing rod suitable for varied fishing situations, one that offers ample power to cast large baits for large fish if needed, yet equally capable of flicking out a bunch of ragworm for plaice, and offering the feel and feedback through the blank to maximise the enjoyment of the fight. The 14ft blank boasts a powerful butt and mid-section that progressively blends into a sensitive glass tip for superb bite detection. Suitable for all casting styles including a simple over-head thump, off-the-ground, or a more powerful pendulum cast with leads between 4-8oz and suitable for clean, mixed and rough ground, the AIRPOWER GTR is a hugely versatile fishing rod designed for the serious angler.
