AKIOS NanoTech Sport Popping Rod 60g-160g

The Akios Nano-Tech Sport Popping Rod is a 2 piece lure rod designed for working large poppers for hard-fighting fish.

The basis of the rod is the super slim Nano carbon blank which features PBS Power Band reinforcement in the lower tip to give a sensitive tip action that blends into increasingly powerful mid and lower sections to help you apply the pressure on large fish.

The Akios Nano-Tech Sport Popping Rod is nicely finished with 3-leg Sea-Guide guides which can be used with both braid and nylon lines. The black whippings are attractively tipped and the glazed finish between the top two guides helps with bite detection. The handle has a DPS winch fitting with a contoured EVS fore-grip and a full EVA lower handle which gives a good grip and has a nice feel in the hand.

The Akios Nano-Tech Sport Popping Rod is a sporting rod that casts well and is suitable for working large surface lures. It can also be used as a sporting fixed spool boat rod.

After the huge success and listening to Angler’s needs and
input from our Radical team we have developed some exciting specialist rods under the NANO-TECH series. The Sport Uptide rod has a beautifully rolled glass tip allowing leads to sit in the tide resulting in more bites and fish. The new Popping rod is set to become a big hit especially married to our new Akios Iron-spin 50 reel for fishing for predators on jigs or hard baits, the travel spin and travel beach rods will allow a very compact rod to be carried wherever you may travel for lure fishing or fishing from the shore, lastly, the new Nano-Tech Kayak rod will be a great addition to the range giving Kayak anglers a very good rod with a 15-20lb rating making it a small powerhouse.
