Akios Air Loop R8 Long Cast Fixed Spool Reel. Specifically designed to offer extreme casting distances, the Akios AIRLOOP R8 is the reel of choice should you be seeking extra yardage. A true casting machine, the AIRLOOP offers super slow oscillation, laying a phenomenal 54 turns of line per cycle on the tournament length spool resulting in truly exceptional line lay.
Anyfish Anywhere Tournament Bass Rod - 12ft 6in. The 12' 6" Tournament version is primarily designed for the use of bass at range in a big sea, when the key to success is bait in the breakers. But as bass fishing also dictates, it wasn’t designed solely for distance but for specific big bait situations as well.
Being 12’6” in length it enables you to cast bigger baits with ease, whether clipped or flapping. You can use fixed spool or multiplier reels with braid if required. This isn’t a specialist’s rod and to anyone who wants a predominately lighter and thinner beach style rod with a lighting tip to hold in the surf, this is for you.
The Bass has now become probably THE most targeted individual species in the UK, and is about the only species where you could use literally hundreds of techniques to catch one. No other single species could be caught using techniques as diverse as fly fishing or live baiting a sand eel, to using surface poppers or a whole pulley penneled squid! Bass are caught by all of these methods, and our Lure&Bait series can be used to great effect on quite a few of them.
But what about fishing heavier? Bigger baits, live baits and big leads? That’s where the Tournament Bass Rod comes in. It is capable of casting large baits into big seas, and landing bigger Bass, with the Tournament Bass giving you the somewhat unusual option of ‘casting’ a live mackerel into the surf and large launce baits to the horizon on the open beach!
The Tournament Bass rod has had great anglers to test it. Super keen bait bass man from Cornwall, Ed Schliffker, who AA asked to catch what the could with it, including bass from his famous surf beaches around Padstow, says:
“Built superbly for casting and fishing and the performance gets a thumbs up from me”.

Red Label Rods
Red label rods are not not only Anyfish Anywhere's premium rod range, they are quite simply some of the very best beach fishing rods you can buy. Over the past eight years they have become the first choice rod for the large majority of the UK's top competition anglers who demand the very best in a series of rods, designed to be able to catch fish anywhere and in any conditions.
The approach to rod design balances casting performance with fishing performance, giving each aspect of the design equal importance, so that the anglers that use red rods have THE very best balance between the two. At the end of the day, its all about catching fish, and the achievements of our rods over the past eight years, show just how good they really are.
Review by Steve Dixey
Very capable rod that will also handle clean ground cod and smoothound fishing. Paired with 6000 series multiplier such as the ABU Chrome Rocket or equivalent, it casts very well, helped by its light weight. Tip is sensitive to bites without being affected overly by wind and the tip also helps with lunging fish.
