Re: Orochi XX - Extreme Mission Type F - Do I need it?

I’m battling the same decision. I already have a couple rods that probably overlap the EMTF, including a Diablo Spec R and a GLX MBR 844 and a Helium 3 4 power, but it’s been such a well regarded rod I’m really tempted to get one. I’ve held off because of its length, creates some storage and especia...

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

Well the deals on the current version were too good to pass up. Courtesy of the crew at The Tackle Trap I’ve got the XX Dropshot Rod on its way! I’m sure whatever is in store with a new generation will be great. But hard to believe it’s gonna be so good to beat the deals on the current gen or make m...

Re: black friday rod- catches fish already

Congrats and nice fish, that first fish on a new stick is always a good feeling.

But your reel has the handle on the wrong side \:D/

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

I’m both excited to see what’s next and also horrified. I have a bunch of Orochi XX rods that I really enjoy, I don’t want to end up feeling like I need to upgrade them all to whatever is next! My rod rack is also full and I have more rods then I can reasonably take out at one time.

Re: replacement suggestion

A bit under the stated budget but I'd also look at the Orochi XX Jerkbait Special and the Spinnerbait Special. Both are very versatile rods, and my Jerkbait Special handles 3/5oz Gunfish really well. But around cover I'd likely prefer the power of the Spinnerbait Special.

Re: Megabass Rod Options?

The Tour Versatile is a good choice for those large spinnerbaits.

Re: Megabass Orochi micro guides and knots

I've been using the FG knot and it casts through the guides fine. I'm sure it slows the cast down just a bit but it's not noticeable. I do this on my Diablo Spec R with 40lb Samurai and a 12 or 14 lb fluoro leader.

Re: Orochi XX Casting Rod 7'2" Diablo Spec R

As others have said it's one awesome rod, but not the right rod for your use case. You would want to be looking at the Tour Versatile or the Perfect Pitch in that line up. But the DSR is one my absolute favorite rods.

Re: What do i "need"

What you're going to need is a high credit limit. Megabass rods are adicting especially the new Destroyers. Check out the Daemos too, I hear it's an extremely versatile medium heavy powerish stick.

Re: First look at Megabass Destroyer USA rods

Doing some floor bend tests, the addermine seems slightly less powerful and has a little slower taper. They are fairly close in power/taper but from what I can see the addermine is slightly less powerful. Hello, would you say the Addermine has a true extra-fast action, despite being a little slower...

Re: First look at Megabass Destroyer USA rods

I have both the NRX 852s and the MB Addy. The NRX has a slight edge in sensitivity. I would rate the Addy in between an ML and an M. Make sense? :lol: I second this ^ I am currently using braid on the addermine setup so to me the sensitivity difference in my hands is unnoticeable. One thing that th...
