Whereas the new EMTF zeroed-in on treble-lure applications, its new sibling, BRAILLIST, chose bottom-contact applications as its raison d’être, delivering a dramatic increase in sensitivity that allows anglers to “read” bottom composition with surprising clarity. The BRAILLIST’s tip section has been stiffened just-so to enable precise presentation and control, while also displaying the requisite backbone to crawl and pop jigs out of potential snags. Under increasing load, the F5.5-powered blank bends smoothly to absorb the fight—unlike many traditional heavy-duty jig sticks that “shut off” abruptly in the mid-section. This enables BRAILLIST to be fished with lighter line when needed, making this model a particularly deadly option for deep, clear water presentations where long casts, sensitivity, a fight-absorbing blank, and the ability to take up slack line quickly are paramount. Anchored by the kabt metal-microfiber butt section, BRAILLIST has fish-stopping power to control long fights in open water, or pull hard-won targets from vegetation and cover. The BRAILLIST is a perfect pair for the Dark Sleeper bottom-contact swimbait, Texas rigs and football jigs.

Tip: If you’re someone who wants even more feedback, be sure to try braid + fluorocarbon leader. The lack of stretch means every “tick” is sharper, while the fluorocarbon leader will protect braid from deadly abrasion as it comes through rock and structure.

  • 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!
