Developed for jerkbaits like the X-80 Trick Darter and Vision Oneten series, the RONIN preserves the bend characteristics and ergonomic advantages of the original, while improving the recovery rate of the blank. Understanding the importance of managing slack line throughout the jerkbait’s cadence, the RONIN’s blank exhibits greater crispness, returning to center-rest with fewer oscillations than its predecessor. This also allows for more precise transmission of rod work, connecting angler to the dynamic and nuanced action of Megabass jerkbaits more fully.
The ergonomics of a compact handle and tapered cork fore grip combine to deliver a superior spinning setup for jerkbaits, allowing for less wrist torque when working baits with sharp, sideways or downward snaps of the rod. In addition, the RONIN is an excellent choice for pinpoint-casting of weighted and weightless worms, and its 6’8” length is ideal for dock-skipping soft plastics.
kabt™ (p. ‘kabutoh’): The astonishing tensile strength and tenacious resilience of the kabt‘s shape-memory metal microfibers are woven into a layered, multi-axis arrangement that reinforces the butt-section of each blank, delivering a superior power-to-weight ratio and more decisive lifting-power and control.
Multi-tonnage construction: Each blank utilizes low-resin carbon of varying tonnage. By matching the desired bend-characteristics of each point to the ideal tonnage, each blank is able to realize ever-greater potential—which translates into silky-smooth load transfer across all taper-types for intuitive cast and feel.
Spiral Architect Reel Seat: A Megabass-original designed for low-profile ergonomics, maximum blank exposure, structural integrity, and efficient grip-shifts when moving from casting to palming.
Micro-Pitch Taping: Un-sanded finishing tape features higher wrapping-density for increased durability and blank crispness.
