The Akios AIRLYTE 355 Light Specialist 2 Piece Rod
If ever there was a rod that puts a smile on your face, it’s the Akios AIRLYTE. A truly stunning light specialist rod that offers great sport and feel when scaling down leads and baits. Weighing in at just 390 grams, it’s a delight to hold all session whilst bass fishing in the surf or touch ledgering with a peeler crab close in amongst the weed beds. Fishing worm baits for flounder and bass in a flooding estuary tide, or a running a rolling lead across sand banks in search of plaice, then this is the rod for you. Close in match fishing, live baiting, float fishing, feathering, or for juniors, the AIRLYTE is a super versatile piece of kit and a must-have to sit alongside your heavier beach rod. The 2 piece, 11.5ft/3.5m high modulus unground carbon blank with hybrid tip makes for a lovely crisp action, pinging out up to 4oz of lead plus bait with absolute ease. There’s plenty of backbone along the butt and mid-section making way to a sensitive hybrid tip offering truly superb bite detection and feel. Fitted with a quality graphite sliding reel seat with EVA collars, the AIRLYTE can be fished with either a fixed spool or light multiplier positioned exactly where you want it.
