Introducing the crisp performance of high modulus Destroyer blanks to the joys of topwater fishing, the F4.5-71X OTOMAT is a new weapon for high-performance topwater anglers and enthusiasts alike. Unlike other models in the Destroyer line, the OTOMAT features a slow tip section to tone down the recovery rate of higher modulus carbon, which can at times almost “pull” lures away from striking topwater targets. This improves hook-up and landing ratios while preserving the sharp responsiveness of the blank’s mid and butt sections, powering crisp rod work for popping and walking style baits.
Excels in pinpoint target placement and precision rod work. Ideal for lures like the DOG-X DIAMANTE, GIANT DOG-X and POPMAX, which respond dynamically to subtle changes in rod work. For anglers employing topwater strategies across multi-day competitions, try employing straight braid (with or without a mono shock leader)—this will allow you to dial back the power of your cadence and diminish fatigue so you don’t miss that key bite! OTOMAT’s unique taper will also satisfy those crankbait anglers who prefer a more crisp and responsive feel than slower tapers or glass composite offerings.
