APIA Foojin'AD Flow Hunt 810ML 8'10'' 7-32g (new version)

This new version APIA Foojin'AD Flow Hunt 810ML 8'10'' 7-32g is just incredible - the previous version was good, but to me this newer one is a little better overall. Absolute class. See my review here.

You can now buy this new version in the UK here.

Apia Grandage 96ML 9’6’’ 7-28g

Damn do APIA make some class lure fishing rods, and this Apia Grandage 96ML 9’6’’ 7-28g lure rod was one I didn’t enjoy having to hand back. Does all that the ratings suggest and more if you ask me, just about ideal for the way so many of us go about our bass lure fishing in the UK and Ireland. See my review here.

Available here in the UK.

APIA Foojin'R Art Magic 91ML 5-28g (discontinued)

This APIA Foojin'R Art Magic 91ML is 9’1’’ long and rated to cast 5-28g, and it’s a very different rod to the APIA Foojin'R Best Bower 93ML. 

You can now find this rod in the UK here.

APIA Foojin'R Best Bower 93ML 5-28g (discontinued)

This APIA Foojin'R Best Bower 93ML lure rod is 9’3’’ long and rated to cast 5-28g, and to me it feels remarkably similar to the discontinued Grove Stream. Easy to fish with, effortless long-casting when required, and I can’t really find fault with it on any of the methods I might use for bass fishing.

You can now find this rod in the UK here.

APIA Foojin’R Best Bower 95M 9’5’’ 7-35g (discontinued)

A true “do it all” lure rod that covers essentially all the sorts of lures and methods I might employ for my bass fishing in the UK and Ireland. Check out my review here.

This rod is now available in the UK, check here.

Apia Foojin'R Best Bower 96MLX 9’6’’ 6-32g (discontinued)

I like how this Apia Foojin'R Best Bower 96MLX 9’6’’, 6-32g properly sits bang in the middle of the 93ML and 95M rods in this Foojin’R Best Bower range, but I do prefer the slightly more powerful 95M as it just seems a tad more “together” when I am fishing with it. See my review here.

This rod is now available here in the UK, check here.

APIA Foojin’R Grand Swell 96MH 9’6’’ 7-42g (discontinued)

Wow, this is one powerful lure fishing rod. I can’t think of a rod designed for casting heavier lures from the shore that I have liked quite as much as this APIA Foojin’R Grand Swell 96MH 9’6’’ 7-42g. See my review here.

This rod is now available here in the UK, check here.

APIA Foojin’R Best Bower 103MLX 10’3’’ 6-35g (discontinued)

As of October 2015, this the longest lure rod I have fished with that’s designed to fish the sort of bass lure I mostly use. Whilst it’s too long for me to need a lure rod like this, the APIA Foojin’R Best Bower 103MLX 10’3’’ 6-35g lure rod is a serious bit of kit for what I reckon is some very sensible money. Surprisingly easy to fish with, check my review here.

APIA Foojin'X Grove Stream 93ML 9'3'' Max 32g (discontinued)

There is something very special about these APIA rods, and this Limited Edition APIA Foojin'X Grove Stream 93ML 9'3'' (max casting weight 32g) is just something else. Very, very special and a true allrounder if you ask me. See my review here.

APIA+IMA Foojin’AD Energy Flow 92ML Max lure 34g (discontinued)

One of the first “longer” lure rods that made me want to go this kind of rod length. A massively impressive rod. Read my full review of the IMA x Apia Foojin’ AD Energy Flow 92ML (9'2'', max lure 34g) here.
