Named after the Roman siege catapult, the Destroyer® Onager was designed to launch large baits with impunity, and crafted for serious bigbait anglers.
Utilizing proprietary multi-axis blank construction and Hybrid Graphite to reduce weight without sacrificing strength or durability, Onager’s entire length exhibits massive power to control bigbaits—and trophy targets—from cast to scale. Combination of lightweight blank material and raw power enables nimble rod work, imparting key action to large baits like the I-SLIDE 262T with ease.
Rear grip length is carefully tuned for two-handed “lever-casting,” and can be comfortably tucked under arm during retrieves, or used to brace throughout the fight of your life. Double-footed Titanium SiC® guides are double-wrapped for durability and performance at key moments.
Onager proudly reflects the commitment of those who dedicate their life to “the one.”
First released in Japan in 1996, the Destroyer® rod series ushered in an era of unrivaled performance, innovation, and craftsmanship that reverberated throughout the angling world. Built to Japanese angling specifications, each generation of Destroyer® represented an evolution in Megabass® rod design, allowing anglers across Japan to realize ever-greater potential with every cast.
Harnessing this design evolution, the all-new Destroyer® is crafted exclusively for North American anglers. Each model is a careful refinement of key American techniques, tirelessly honed by the insight our designers have gained though thirty-years of innovation across virtually every lure type and category.
Each un-sanded blank features the original Destroyer® logo as a nod to its predecessors, and is constructed of a proprietary Hybrid Graphite System. This system integrates carbon of varying modulus into a single blank, selecting the optimal grade for each bend point for a “Hybrid” construction that is effortlessly suited to the task at hand. Combined with our multi-axis build process, each blank stands in its prime, poised to unleash bombing casts and devastating hooksets, while also revealing a deep wellspring of “lifting power” to control the fight.
Patented blank-through construction, Spiral Architecture Reel Seat, and Head Locker combine to deliver low-profile ergonomics and inspiring feel. Fuji® Titanium SiC® guides are anchored by dual thread-wraps on heavy action models, while stripper guides on all models are finished with a distinctive flourish.
Armed with the best available materials and components, patented advancements, proprietary blank builds and tapers, and that impeccable fit and finish anglers have come to expect from Megabass, these first eight models represent the opening salvo in North America’s own Destroyer® journey. Choose your weapons wisely.
