Latest model with Black Fuji BMNAG Alconite guides.
Length 13' 6'' - Casting 4 - 8oz
The Ron Thompson aXellerator is a very powerful beach casting rod which has gained a cult following with anglers looking for a tough 'rock rod' on a budget. The rod has a fairly stiff action but the tip has just enough give to sit nicely in the tide and also register bites. The aXellerator does not fold up under load allowing you to bully fish through the kelp and over rocks with ease. Casting performance is good and with even the restricted casting arc often needed on rock marks the rod is capable of casting heavy sinkers with large baits a considerable distance.
If you are after a rod for tough fishing and do not want to splash out £400+ on a top end tournament rod then you could do a lot worse than joining the aXellerator 'cult'!
The rod is well finished with Fuji BMNAG Alconite guides, shrink tube handle and a sliding 'coastal' style screw winch.
