How does the tip and backbone of the Otomat compare to the OG XX Flat Side Special?
Tip seens more versatile and lively. I feel like the Otomat has a tad more backbone.

Re: The skinny in the Otomat

I now have a TDZ reel with BE spool and 12 floro and have put a 6th Sense square bill on it I have used Pop Max and Diamante on mine quite a bit now. I have experimented with squarebills on ...

Re: One ten special

Its one of my favorites in the US Destroyer lineup. I carry 2 of them in the boat. Good topwater rod as well. I occasionally use it on shaeyheads and even dropshots when using a baitcaster for those presentations.

Re: Megabass levante discontinued?

Were the JDM Levante rods affected by the recall? I keep looking at them to expand my kayak arsenal but it's hard to find any info about them. https://www.megabass.co.jp/site/information/levante/ There are some interesting looking rods in the line up, esp the F5-611LV. I could see it being both a g...

There was a manufacturing defect that caused them to be removed from the market. Shocked it took so long that at this posing they still are not available

Just being very thorough before they are released.

Re: Megabass levante discontinued?

The Levantes are not being discontinued. They should be available in early 2020. I will get a firmer availability date and share it on here soon.

Re: Higher End Rods

I'm thinking a jerkbait topwater rod. I have a Kistler KLX Crank, Rip and Twitch for that purpose but the tip is a lot softer than I expected. You might want to take a look at the Megabass US Destroyer Oneten Special for jerkbaits and the Destroyer Otomat for topwaters. Both are great in their resp...

Re: — Anyone? OROCHI EMTF—

I did before the Launcher was released. It was good for cranking especially if you are not crazy about glass rods for cranking which I am not. I prefer the Launcher these days as I feel it handles them better.
