The first-generation FLATSIDE SPECIAL quickly gained a dedicated following for its versatility and intuitive feel. The new FLATSIDE SPECIAL preserves these key characteristics while improving sensitivity, casting distance and lifting power, delivering a clear performance upgrade. The FLATSIDE SPECIAL’s blank is discernibly crisper, getting back to center-rest more quickly after rod work and delivering greater sensitivity to transmit lure action and bottom-composition/structure with clarity. Improved blank material anchored by the powerful kabt metal microfiber wrap demonstrates greater stability when casting lures at the upper end of the FLATSIDE SPECIAL’s weight range, in addition to adding muscle to casts, hooksets, and fights with hard-charging keepers. Smooth-bending regular taper transfers load with ease, preserving intuitive cast feel and absorbing surging fights to keep finicky trebles securely buried. A must-have model for the new SonicSide flatside crankbait and S-Crank series, in addition to top waters like the PopMax and Giant Dog-X. Lastly, the FLATSIDE SPECIAL is also an excellent jerkbait option for those anglers who appreciate the blank’s more traditional regular taper design.

  • 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.
  • Fuji Stainless SiC Guides

Received my new Megabass Orochi XX Bass Rod today from TackleDirect. By far it exceeds my expectations. Very clean...no flaws anywhere on it and the rod protector it came with is professional grade. Will be matching it with a Shimano Curado DC X. Can't wait to get it out for a test. TACKLEDIRECT shipped it in a very sturdy box and hand wrapped. Get one..its sweet! Thanks TD!
