Megabass Orochi XX Casting Rods

The Megabass Orochi XX casting rods come are available in the four following models.

   Tour Versatile

The redesigned TOUR VERSATILE is a powerful tournament-tested tool that bridges the gap between bottom contact and horizontal applications. Furthermore, covering the widest range of softbait presentations in the lineup. The TOUR VERSATILE is also built to deploy swim jigs, smaller swimbaits with a fast taper and compact—yet powerful—7’ blank.

The TOUR VERSATILE is a compact, musclebound brawler built to swing—hard. Drawing from the kabt’s wellspring of power, the TOUR VERSATILE’s fast taper quickly transfers load to the lower 2/3 of the blank, leveraging next-gen metal microfiber technology to drive wide-gauged hooks home with peak force. The TOUR VERSATILE’s 7’ combination of length, taper, and power are also well-suited to skipping belly-weighted 5” swimbaits under docks and throwing larger top-waters like the i-Jack and i-Loud. In light of this, this rod is an essential addition to the arsenal of any tournament angler.

   EMTF

Comparatively, the next-generation OROCHI XX EMTF builds upon the performance category. Strengthening the bottom third of the blank for greater casting distance and fish-stopping power, while preserving the supple bend required to keep trebles securely buried throughout grueling, long-distance fights.

Additionally, the EMTF exhibits a crisper feel, reducing the blank oscillation and reverberation often felt between rod actions (jerks, pops, etc). With a shorter rod this may not be noticeable, but with EMTF’s 7’5” length so often employed for techniques that require rod work to impart action, a tighter blank offers greater control, requires less effort, and also creates a more direct connection between angler and lure.

   Swingfire

Strictly focused on the highest-possible landing percentage with treble-hook baits, the redesigned OROCHI XX SWINGFIRE features a rebalanced glass/carbon mixture and improved backbone. By extending the blank’s graphite further up the blank, the SWINGFIRE gains new muscle in its midsection. As a result, SWINGFIRE now delivers more powerful hooksets, greater castability, distance and control throughout the fight.

Moreover, the traditional forgiveness of glass is preserved in the upper-mid and tip section. This provides the perfect amount of “give” to absorb chasing bites and last-ditch surges at the boat. However, the truly remarkable characteristic of the SWINGFIRE is that it has the unique characteristics of both graphite and glass. Additionally, it is the seamlessness with which these very different materials have been combined. SWINGFIRE offers the unique sensitivity as well as power of graphite with the forgiveness of glass, presenting an invaluable cranking tool that smoothly loads from one end to the other.

Unlike pure graphite models, hybrid and traditional glass rods often require a roll-cast motion instead of overhead or sidearm casts. However, the new SWINGFIRE casts more like a traditional graphite rod if you allow it to fully load, adding range to cast motions—and distance. Further, the SWINGFIRE’s increased sensitivity enables quick detection of structure, bottom composition and subtle changes to lure action.

   Perfect Pitch

One of the most popular models within the series, the first-generation PERFECT PITCH quickly gained a hardcore following among bottom-fishing and pitching experts alike for its sensitivity, power, precision, balance and maneuverability. The redesigned OROCHI XX PERFECT PITCH adds not only knockout power but also heightened sensitivity, taking this newest iteration to an entirely new level.

With an extra-fast taper and F7 (Force: 7) construction, the PERFECT PITCH delivers the quickest, most devastating Tyson-esque hookset in the lineup. Additionally, with its unique combination of power, quickness and sensitivity, PERFECT PITCH excels in bottom contact applications. Finely-tuned tip section has the perfect load-characteristics for accurate pitching, while retaining the ideal stiffness to work jigs accurately in and around bottom structure.


Specifications:

  • 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. Correspondingly, by matching the desired bend-characteristics of each point to the ideal tonnage, each blank is able to realize ever-greater potential. Additionally, this 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.
  • Fuji® Stainless SiC Guides
