High density graphite with a thick-walled, thin-diameter blank gives an even bend throughout the rod curve. This gives steady and even pressure against the fish. Like a modern hunting bow flexes as you pull back, power is generated evenly giving unrelenting lifting power. Fuji silicon nitride or alconite concept guides and Fuji or Stuart reel seats convey this awesome power from the reel. These rods are a perfect match for the powerful drags on the light weight powerful conventional and spinning reels now on the market. Unrelenting rods for unrelenting reels whether flat lining for yellowtail snapper, trolling for yellow fin tuna or casting to huge tarpon there is a Paraflex rod for you.

Paired this rod with an AVET raptor with 80lbs braid. Had my first Ă˘â‚¬Ëœproperâ€â"˘ fish with it at the weekend, a 200lbs + Porbeagle shark and it handled 26lbs of drag no problem. Quality finish and plenty of power. Lots of bang for your buck at the price.

I am a charter captain in south Louisiana and I won't use any other rod than the Star Paralfex! Great flexibility and is able to hold out against plus size yellowfin tuna. I have had these for two years and do not have one single complaint.

Good job to Star rods on this one. The blank is very strong and overall light weight. I paired the rod with a Truth SG and have been happy with the performance so fare. The craftmenship is well done and the choice and placement of the guides match the SG perfectly. I'm glad to see they used tangle-free guides for the entire rod unlike the spinning model.

I have the MH paired with a truth sg spooled with 40lb braid.
The biggest fish I've caught is 15lb, which the rod handled with ease.
I'm sure this rod could handle 50lb + fish it didn't snap when trying to lift my two dogs in there crate!

Light and strong
May 25, 2013
I matched these with 30 Santiago reels for a lightweight combo. I was a little nervous that the rod was too light for these reels,, but the blank is Strong and it turned out to be an awesome combo.
ProsWeight to strength ratio Feel
ConsPowerbutt - hopefully ok, but obviously not as strong as a metal butt.

From what I've seen I'm really impressed with this rod plus I'm a huge fan of Star Rods products as I have owned several over the years. My question about these parallax stand up rods is: I've seen the videos saying that these rods are incorporating jigging rod technology including smaller reel seats to accommodate some of today's smaller reels but would that prevent these rods from being able to be outfitted with traditional sized trolling reels? When I say traditional sized reels I mean 30's and 50's so in other words could these rods be used with say an Avet EX 30 or 50 or Penn International 30 or 50? The reason I ask is if I bought some of these rods I would only be using them as traditional stand-up rods and not having them double as trolling / jigging rods. Thank You.
1 Answer
These rods will work with your more traditional sized trolling reels (30's & 50's) and will help make the outfit lighter in weight when compared to a more standard designed glass trolling rod. You will get the most weight reduction though by reducing the reel size. If you have any other questions on this or other rods please feel free to reach out to one of our product specialist.
