Risky Player Slow Jigging Series

Maxel is once again leading the slow jigging sector of the market with its new Risky Player rod series. Following a long evolution from concept through advanced rod building technology and comprehensive field-testing, Maxel has developed a unique, lightweight slow jigging rod that overcomes the shortcomings of similar rods in the category.

The RiskyPlayer 5’5” version is designed for fishing in deep water against strong currents. Fishing at depths of more than 200m causes powerful resistance from two-layer flow, but the rod will help reduce pressure on the arm, increase the feel of the jig’s action through the blank and deliver sensitive bite indication. Designed with a fast-action backbone, the rods are suitable for the high-pitch technique and can be used to ensure all-round performance for slow jigging in deep water.

The RiskyPlayer 6.0’ version is ideal for using when fish are inactive and difficult to tempt. The rod’s design allows it to be fished at a high arc and present the bait in a long fall through the water. They also come into their own when jigging in strong currents and heavy winds, helping control the line and adding movement to the jig on its descent.

The longer models also lend themselves to fishing on boats with a higher life rail and work well at a high gear-speed ratio when using the ‘Half Pitch’ technique.
