Replacing the old FLIPPING SPECIAL, the all-new AKLYS is a dedicated punching rod built to attack the thickest vegetation. Dialing the taper back to a medium-fast action, the top-third of the blank loads swiftly to launch punch rigs, then distributes force throughout the blank for powerful hooksets and sustained leverage to keep fish pinned to the underside of thick mats. Carefully selected rear-grip length gives leverage, while the finely-tuned counterweight centers the rod’s overall balance-point at the reel to allow for smooth, pendulum-like rod work with minimal fatigue. Double-footed and double-wrapped SiC guides add durability, while increased ring diameter allows for smoother travel with heavy line and braid + heavy leader combinations. Stronger, kabt reinforced blank and medium-fast taper are also better-suited to traditional flipping applications, calling upon more of the powerful blank to bury thick-gauge hooks and haul keepers from gnarly cover.

  • 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 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!

I'm a huge Megabass fan and this rod does not disappoint ! Ordered the perfect Pitch and this thing is sensitive, crisp and loaded with power. Used mostly for pitching jigs and tubes, works great for frogs also. Love it!!
