RiskyPlayer 55 Series

Following a long evolution from concept through advanced rod building technology and comprehensive field testing, Maxel has developed a unique slow jigging rod that overcomes the shortcomings of similar rods in the category.

The RiskyPlayer has the power and action to bend into fish and pump them to the surface, overcoming the weak characteristics sometimes found in high-resilient carbon blanks. Maxel has found the answer in the powerful carbon fibre used in the blanks, which makes these slow jigging rods light, extremely sensitive, and incredibily strong.

The RiskyPlayer 55 version is designed for fishing in deep water and strong currents. Fishing at depths of more than 200m causes powerful resistance from two layer flow, but the shorter 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 ‘hard belly’, the rods are suitable for the High Pitch technique and can be used as All Round models for slow jigging in deep water.
