Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I am in complete shock, I just picked up my Orochi XX Spec R today after work from my local tackle shop and decided to go fishing I have been waiting for months to get it and try it out. When I got my first bite I set the hook and to my complete shock the rod snapped right below the third guide! :s...

Right now things look a bit ahead of schedule and the baits may start shipping the middle of May to retailers.

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

The wait is killing me.... Tacklewarehouse says mid summer, I hope not I cannot speak on behalf of TW but I know the rod/retailers should start shipping the first week in May unless something out of the ordinary happens. The only rod that will be slightly delayed will be the Braillist and it will b...

Re: NEW Megabass Sonic Side crank

I'm excited about this one too. Like a lot of guys, I would have loved to have a bunch of them in stock in February, but it will catch fish year round in my waters. We'll have them up for pre-order as soon as we can! Hey Mark - be sure to save me a couple of those prototype Mat Shad :lol: If they g...

Re: NEW Megabass Sonic Side crank

The target date is by the end of May. If things go smooth then possible sooner. The initial assortment of colors is being finalized etc right now. They should hit the production cycle very soon.

Re: USA Destroyer Oneten Special rod

I use mine for topwaters, light Texas rigs, shakyheads when I want to use a baitcaster for that, small swimbaits on jigheads, finesse cranks etc. I have a couple because I found it to be so versatile.

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

Here's an excellent break down of the new XX rods. Definitely worth the watch, Kenichi knows his stuff. Sharing this here, because I feel like this thread didn't start off very well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4uzMW7ssas That is a great video. I posted it on the other XX thread the other nigh...

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4uzMW7ssas Man that's a great video (I had no problem with the sound), lots of great design insight. I foresee that brailist being the most popular, probably by quite a bit. Especially after him saying it's the most sensitive of the lineup. I bet it'll be the new Na...

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Kenichi had a LOT to do with the initial design of the XX and also the redesign. He always has some incredible insight on why he made something like he did or why he changed something. The reasoning behind extending the length on the Jerkbait Special for instance is a great example. Its the little t...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

Mark thanks for taking time to share with us all of the info and thoughts on the series. I think the part that gets us is that you mention MB had put extra time into crafting this series. More R&D, more feedback, more testing, etc but yet the looks are barely distinguishable from the XXX rods. ...
