The Ironman TravelMaster Multi Rod Fishing Rod and Reel

Iromman multi rod

Other than 4wding, there’s no better recreation than fishing. I reckon the two aussie pastimes are best when together (some of the best fishing spots are by 4×4!) and yet a quick trip to your nearest estuary, beach, dam or river is always a goodie, even if you got there by pushbike.

If you’re not a fisho – you ought to be. It’s relaxing (albeit) thirsty kind of work. Real thirsty sometimes  :)  You can go solo or with a tribe, and that sense of the ‘catch’ or “catching the big one” never seems to leave you, even if you’ve been fishing for years.

But sometimes fishing is more technical than it ought to be. Which rod? Which reel? What line rating? What bait etc? When you’re travelling, be it by 4WD, bike or by foot, loading space is usually at a premium. You don’t want to be bogged down with gear. You want to KISS it. (Keep It Simple. Straight-forward).

To help, check out this Travel Master gear by Ironman 4×4. It’s lightweight, versatile and portable. Chuck it under your back seat so you’re always ready to go, or strap it onto your backpack. Be it big surf or dropped over the side of your tinnie – just add fish!


THE ROD:

Ironman fishing rod


The new Ironman 4×4 Travel Master Multi-Rod is the ideal lightweight, portable fishing tool. It facilitates the perfect fishing setup for any given situation, offering 36 combinations in 9 different rod styles. You’ll have the ideal setup from river to surf fishing at a moment’s notice. The unique, patent pending design of the Multi-Rod provides a customisable setup to ensure you’ll have the ideal rod every time. Carbon fiber construction makes for its lightweight and durable design, whilst the easy connecting adaptors allow for quick setup of the rod. All this is packed into a compact and easy to store carry tube.

The rod comes with three tips that are colour coded to represent different strengths. A handle extension can be used any time to give you that extra casting distance. Although there are 36 different rod combinations available to build, an easy-to-read booklet (included with your purchase) provides some guidelines on how you can best use it.

For example:

1) SURF ROD (use the following numbers in sequence)

– Handle extension (marked as #1)

– Handle (marked as #2)

– Pieces #3, #4, #5, #6, #7 rod sections

– Choice of tip section #8, #9, or #10.

[Surf Rod Notes] This rod is ideal for fishing the beaches for salmon, mulloway or mullet. All the pieces of the rod are used here, including the handle extender which assists with long-distance casting.

For the rod tips:

BLACK is the heavy type for sinker bait casting (Pilchard or whole baits).

ORANGE is the medium type for lure fishing.

GREEN is the light tip for light bait or smaller soft plastics.

The included booklet provides the same style of information to build your own:

1) Rock Casting rod

2) Boating rod

3) Big River rod

4) Light river or pond rod

5) Squidding rod

6) Jetty rod

7) Spin stick rod

8) Poacher pieces rod

All of the rod pieces fit together nicely and smoothly. The rod has a good feel, regardless of the combination of rod you design. The Ironman 4×4 Travel Master Multi-Rod is constructed of solid carbon fibre with an interwoven adhesive layer. Most carbon or “graphite” rods are hollow and can fracture easily if knocked against a hard surface. The solid carbon design makes it more durable. It’s tough enough to take all the knocks and bumps of the serious traveller, yet remains both lightweight and strong enough for most fishing conditions.

THE REEL:

Designed to complement the versatile Multi-Rod, the Multi-Reel features 3 pre-lined spools colour coded to match the rod tips, pinion gears, 9 + 1 ball bearings, 5.5:1 gearing ratio and a silent anti-reverse.

BLACK = 25lb breaking strain.

FLUORO ORANGE = 12lb breaking strain.

FLUORO GREEN = 6lb breaking strain.

The Ironman Travel Master Multi-Reel is corrosion resistant, and is engineered for smooth operation and performance. Carry sack included.
