The Wilson family has been producing outstanding fishing rods since first being established in 1946 by founder Leslie Wilson. From 1946 until the present, Wilson Fishing has been manufacturing a range of its angling equipment domestically right here in Australia.
Within the Wilson Australian Series, there is an ideal range of surf fishing rods for casting off from beaches and rocks. Having been designed by a manufacturer and fisherman who knows about fishing in Australia, the range delivers impressive performance in Australian surf fishing conditions. The Wilson MT7144 is the third rod in the range of wilsom MT series rods and is at the heavier end of the spectrum.
Wilson has developed the MT7144 to feature a line rating of upto 10kg, which will let you catch Australian salmon, bonito, snapper, tailor, kingfish, cobia and other species commonly found along the Australian rock and beach coastline.
The 12-foot length lets you cast off from rocks with ease, and help get out into the surf. In spite of its considerable length, the rod comes in two pieces to allow for compact storage.
The components on the MT7144 are equally impressive, with the guides and fittings incredibly durable. Kilwell is responsible for providing the flexible yet strong blanks, which are remarkably sensitive. Low mount models use Alvey reels, whereas medium models are intended for spinning reels, you have the choice when ordering.
