Designed for moving lures like shallow cranks, vibrating lures, and spinnerbaits, the glass construction of the F4-68XXG is built to “give,” and allow the fish that extra split-second of time to take the bait better than with pure graphite. Constructed of a unique blend of glass fiber, the XXG is exceedingly light and durable. The length of the F4-68XXG makes it very easy to cast in every way imaginable, from roll casting to precision-pitching light cranks.
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 blank manufacturing process, and an uncompromising eye for quality and performance.
Guided by the unparalleled expertise of two of the premier professional anglers in the US, Aaron Martens and Luke Clausen, we set out to design a line of rods to earn a place on the front deck of their boat, and put the power of the legendary Orochi into their hands. The result of this collaboration is the tournament-tested and proven Orochi XX, built to the exacting specifications of our National Pro Staff, and for the tournament-winning tactics of North American anglers everywhere.
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; a Megabass original hook keeper; and lastly, that fit and finish you can only expect from Megabass.
