Re: XX PP for small swimbaits?

I throw 1-1.5oz swimbaits on a Megabass Evoluzion LWL Mephisto. It’s incredible.

Re: Megabass V. Evergreen

Alright so if I'm going to go with the Orochi XX its at the $300 price range. Am I missing better option at this price point or is this pretty close to the best $300 rod.

SiC guides on the Carbon Head versions vs Alconite on the ‘16 Destroyers...and The hood on the Carbon Head models are similar to the ‘17 US Destroyers.

Re: Megabass V. Evergreen

Re: replacement suggestion

I'm really partial to the Hein. I think it fits in this scenario nicely especially if the Adrena fishes lighter than the stated Medium power and the OP was already very happy with it. The Hein has a very unique taper. It handles 1/2oz hardbaits with a sensation that's really hard to explain when bot...
