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. The tip section has that perfect “give” to turn strikes into sure hooksets, while the strength of carbon provides the lifting power you need to control the fight all the way to the boat. Another place the hybrid construction shines is alongside the boat, where the “give” of glass absorbs last-ditch charges, preventing trebles from being ripped free. Featuring a regular taper, the F5-72XXG is perfect for fast-moving light to medium cranks like the S-CRANK, KNUCKLE LD, and DEEP-X 150.
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.
