Megabass Orochi XX
Inspired by the Orochi, the ancient dragon god of water, the Orochi XX series seeks to capture the raw power and control of its namesake through Megabass’ cutting-edge multi-axis blank manufacturing process, and an uncompromising eye for quality.
Crafted of super low-resin carbon up to the 40-ton grade, the materials of each Orochi blank are custom matched to the rod’s intended application. Each blank features a vertical-axis carbon core wrapped with a 2-axis XX-Micro Carbon layer, followed by an additional vertical-axis carbon layer.
Each blank is then finished off with a 4-axis carbon wrap that goes from the butt section to the mid-section, for a total of 6-axis. Since carbon material is strongest along its axis, this unique manufacturing process adds significant strength to combat blank twist and improve overall structural integrity—all without adding unnecessary weight.
Each Orochi XX is purpose-built for tournaments, and our craftsmen know that a single cast can make all the difference. Each rod has a carefully selected range of tangle-free Fuji KWSG, KR-H, and Fuji small caliber Alconite guides for smooth casting and increased sensitivity; Fuji reel seats; Megabass custom ITO Head Locking Reel Seat (PAT.); a rubber/cork composite end cap to protect against fierce hook sets; and lastly, that fit and finish you can only expect from Megabass.
F3st-610XXS Stinger Shot
Get the drop on finesse targets
Featuring a Megabass original STINGER TIP design, the Stinger Shot brings ultra-sensitivity and an extra-fast taper to the drop shot game. Designed to be a perfect complement to the existing F3-611XXS Drop Shot model, the Stinger Shot is designed for light-line nose hooking and wacky rig applications where added sensitivity and bite-detection are paramount.
F3-611XXS Drop Shot
Designed to the tournament specs of renowned finesse anglers, the F3-611XXS was built to have the ideal length, taper, and feel required for critical drop shot bites. With a medium-fast taper, the F3-611XXS has the perfect blend of tip and backbone required to handle finesse rigs and haul your fish straight to the live well. The length and taper are also well suited for shaky head fishing, as well as small crank baits, jerk baits and wacky-rigged soft plastics. For many anglers, the versatility of this rod will allow the F2-611XXS to satisfy all their spinning tackle techniques.
F3½-70XXS Shaky Head
The F3½-70XXS could easily be considered the ideal shaky head rod. Built for finesse applications where a quick, solid hookset is required, the F3½-70XXS features a 7ft. blank with a fast taper. The combination of length/taper allows for extremely long casts, precise control over the action of lures and rigs, takes up line quickly during hook sets at distance, and offers the tip-softness necessary for fighting big fish without fear of breakoffs. The parabolic action under loads makes this an excellent choice for bottom-finesse methods, but also for small crankbaits and jerkbaits. The F3.570xxs performs best with lure weights ranging from 1/8th ounce, to 3/8th oz., with line tests of 4-12lb. fluorocarbon, or 6-20lb. braid.
Pinpoint target fishing & jerkbaiting
With a fast taper and compact handle length, the RONIN is designed to pair perfectly with jerkbaits like the X-80 Trick Darter and Vision Oneten series. As many renowned jerkbait anglers across the US and Japan already know, the X-80 Trick Darter was designed for pairing with a spinning setup. This ergonomically superior setup allows for more comfortable and powerful sideways snaps of the rod to draw out the full dancing, darting potential of Megabass jerkbaits. In addition, the well-balanced RONIN is an excellent choice for pinpoint casting accuracy for floating worms, weighted and weightless worms, and shaky heads, and is an ideal match for dock skipping. As expert jerkbait anglers like Randy Blaukat will attest, the advantages of spinning setups are not to be overlooked.
F4-68XXG Fast-Moving Special
Designed for moving lures like shallow cranks, vibrating lures, and spinnerbaits, the glass construction of the F4-68XXG is built to “give,” and allow the fish that extra split-second of time to take the bait better than with pure graphite. Constructed of a unique blend of glass fiber, the XXG is exceedingly light and durable. The length of the F4-68XXG makes it very easy to cast in every way imaginable, from roll casting to precision-pitching light cranks.
F4½-68XX Jerkbait Special
Designed for jerk baits like the X-80 TRICK DARTER, VISION ONETEN, and MAGNUM, the F4½-68XX features a parabolic bend and a 6’8” length that is perfect for quick, precise rod action. Ideally suited for lure weights of ¼ to ¾oz., the F4½-68XX is an excellent choice not only for jerk baits, but medium-running crank baits, top waters and light jigs and worms as well.
Featuring a glass/graphite hybrid blank, the Swingfire offers the best of both worlds: the lightness and backbone of carbon, with the load-characteristics and forgiveness of traditional glass. Featuring a regular taper, the F5-72XXG is perfect for fast-moving light to medium cranks like the KNUCKLE60, DEEP-X 150 and 300.
Bombing casts & cranking control
Christened the “Launcher,” the F5-711XXG is designed with the backbone and action necessary to power bombing casts and complete control. Every added foot of casting distance translates into increased depth and/or time in the target zone, allowing you to get the most out of your medium and deep-diving crankbaits. However, casting is only half the battle: featuring a carbon/glass composite blank with a fast action, the Launcher quickly loads for maximum power and control for sweeping hooksets and tough fights with deep monsters. The Launcher is ideally suited for deep-diving cranks like the DEEP-X 300 and DEEP-SIX, and can even handle larger ultra-deep plugs. Lastly, the Launcher features an offset handle design for optimal mobility, whereby the blank can be separated from the handle assembly for storage and transport.
F4½-70XX Flat-Side Special
7ft. long and featuring a regular taper, F4½-70XX was designed as an all-purpose graphite cranking stick, with that all-important parabolic bend for just the right amount of “give,” and launching cranks. The Flat-Side Special is a very versatile model, with applications ranging from vibrating lures and 3/8oz. spinnerbaits to medium-running crank baits. And for anglers who prefer a longer rod for jerk baits and top waters, the F4½-70XX can pull double-duty with ease.
“The most universal rod in the Double X line. Works great for everything from light plastics to jigs. You name it, it does it!”
- Luke Clausen, FLW TOUR
F5-610XX Spinnerbait Special
The F5-610XX is a great choice for the angler who prefers a smaller, lighter rod, with the power and versatility to perform numerous tasks. The medium-fast taper is ideal for precision casting of ½ oz. and ¾ oz. spinnerbaits, but also finesse jigs, Texas rigs, crank baits, top waters and jerkbaits. The F5-610XX offers the power to move stationary hooks like jigs, yet the bend and length to offer forgiveness for cranking and jerking.
“The only spinnerbait rod I will ever need. At 6'10" with a medium fast taper, I can hit close targets accurately yet still have the power to fish a big spinnerbait deep.”
- Luke Clausen, FLW TOUR
F5-72XX Diablo Spec-R
Inspired by one of the Megabass pro’s favorite limited edition rods, the F5-72XRC Racing Condition, the Diablo Spec-R is perhaps the most versatile rod in the lineup. Excellent for larger fast-moving plugs, vibrating swim jigs, spinnerbaits, and even larger jerkbaits like the MAGNUM and ITO SHINER, Texas rigs and weightless worms, the Diablo’s fast action and perfect balance provide effortless performance on the water.
F5-75XX Extreme Mission Type F
The F5-75XX is the perfect combination of power, feel and lightness. This rod is ideal for casting Texas rigged worms, jigs, big crank baits, and spinnerbaits. The length of the F5-75 allows the angler to effectively pitch or launch lures, and take up a great deal of line on the hooksets. The fast taper allows for quick hooksets, and the blank absorbs a lot of the fight, so that it is harder to loose those giants.
“My favorite rod for casting Carolina rigs, football heads and big worms deep. Great for when you want a longer rod to get the pressure on one with a lot of line out.”
- Luke Clausen, FLW TOUR
F6-70XX Tour Versatile
The F6-70XX will put the feel of controlled power into the angler’s hands with the first cast. Ideally suited for casting and pitching jigs and worms, the Tour Versatile is also made to handle big spinnerbaits, crank baits, frogs and even some swimbaits.
F6½-70XX Jig & Worm
The F6½-70XX is a powerful rod, designed with a fast taper to deliver a quick uppercut and penetrating hook set with stationary lures like jigs, worms, Carolina rigs, and some swimbaits. Also suited for slow-rolling big spinnerbaits and heaving big, hard-pulling crankbaits, the F6½-70XX has the power to handle big baits, yet the lightness to control them with ease.
“The ultimate jig and worm rod for fishing around moderate cover. Power and performance in a 7' package.”
- Luke Clausen, FLW TOUR
F7-72XX Perfect Pitch
The F7-72XX offers the power of a flipping stick combined with the maneuverability of a casting rod. A great choice for pitching, flipping and casting jigs and worms, the Perfect Pitch is ideal for anglers who prefer slightly shorter rods for quick and devastating hook sets. The F7-72XX is designed to be paired heavy-duty line tests to dominate heavy cover.
In addition to pitching and casting, the F7-72XX can also serve as a great tool for umbrella rigs, big crank baits, swimbaits and spinnerbaits.
F8-79XX Flipping Special
The F8-79XX is perfectly suited for medium to heavy duty flipping and pitching. This rod is designed to flip and pitch ¼ to 1oz. lures into the thickest cover you can find. The rod has a perfect blend of lightness and power, which is crucial to the versatility needed to perform a traditional 10ft. flip on one cast, then a 30 foot pitch on the next. The F8-79XX has the power to muscle the fish out of the thickest vegetation mats or wood cover. Ideal for not only pitching Texas-rigged soft plastics and jigs, the Aaron Martens Flipping Special can also pull double-duty as an excellent swimbait rod.
Overwhelming power & control
"Great Rod for Hard Treble Hook Big Baits like the I-Slide 262T" - Oliver Ngy
With a medium-fast taper and the Orochi XX’s signature 6-axis construction, the Leviathan comes alive for maximum power and control for bigbait and punching applications. Matched with double-footed Fuji Alconite stainless steel guides to harness the 6-axis blank’s brute strength, the Leviathan’s 8ft frame serves up bruising hook-sets and dominating control. Furthermore, with a custom-tuned handle length that allows both for comfortable casting and meddle-free rod work to keep your offerings dancing from side to side, the Leviathan brings a new level of dominance to your bigbait and punching applications. Featuring an offset handle design for optimal mobility, the Leviathan's blank can be separated from the handle assembly for storage and transport.
