2 years to find the Millionaire I'ze light I've seen more than a few pop up in the classifies in the last couple years some were in pretty much mint condition.

A leftie in AU? I had one spotted last year but the seller decided to sell local instead. Was spewing for ages after that. Kept an eye out on auction sites but most were RH, fished hard or modified. As much as I love tuning reels this one I wanted stockers.

Some of the time even the perfect cast with a small lure like a MX48 or SX40 isn't enough. You will nail the cast and they will spook when you move the lure. That's why I have to resort to unweighted plastics a fair bit.

Most of the time we fish bigger minnows, topwaters and shad style lures from 50-80mm. Dog X will work and I've seen the Fakie dog bring a few undone to.

Like I said I'm not totally against the idea. Would like to see it in action with some smaller Bream lures chucked at structure. I also have another question for you. Forget finesse and think sudden death racks Breaming. What about BC gear for that? Fishing 55-70mm minnows/topwayers in 1 to 2ft of water chasing big Tas Bream in the racks. The racks are 5m apart usually. Normally fish 8lb leader and 10lb braid. 2500 daiwa and MB RC full house 6'10''. What the retrieve rate you can get on BC gear? I find almost locking the drag and cranking them in is the best way to land them.

Sorry for late reply,

I think 350 bucks is money well spent for something that can do this:



And the numbers DO do it justice:
10m away, 2m of overhang, 3cm clearance, ROF: 7 a minute.
7lb Fluorocarbon.

Total rod and reel weight: < Certate 2506.

Some recent bling of mine. My Millerods quiver is now complete (for now of course ).

2x 7'3" Grub Freaks, super-high modulus blank with Torzite K's
2x 6'7" Brawlers with Titanium Alconite K's
1x 6'9" XF Classic super-high modulus blank with Torzite K's

Now to put some reels on them and go fishing

Thinking 2004 Steez's on the Grub Freaks. 2508 Steez's on the Brawlers and an old finesse 2004 Certate on the XF.

And I've recently had the boat re-wrapped.

Still haven't got any on the water shots, but this is from the night that i picked it up from AAAA signs in Eltham.

Love the wrap Paul

Hopefully will have a chance to put my hands on those Millers to see for myself if you made the right choice.
