Re: New Levante vs

I was not a fan of the first generation Levante rods but I am a fan of the current generation Levante rods. The improvement is significant! In my experience, the 2019 Levante rods are easily in the upper echelon of sensitivity at that $200 price point. In my hands, they are clearly more sensitive th...

Re: Megabass Addermine, Orochi XX Whipsnake, or Orochi XXX Jade Python

In Megabass terms, the Addermine is 1/2 power heavier than either Whipsnake or Jade Python. The power differential is clearly noticeable, but it isn't like going from a Medium Light (3) power to a Medium Heavy (5) power. If you're using 1/8 oz heads and lighter, not any heavier, and those 1/4 oz tre...

Re: OG tatula vs New tatula rod

I'm a fan of the new Tatula rods. I think they are one of the best value rods on the market and are generally under rated. They are light, sensitive, and available in a lot of actions and powers. I like the overall feel of the rods better than the first generation models and those were nice rods too...

Re: Megabass Ito Shiner?

Shhhhh.... just keep buying the 110, nothing to see here :lol: I fish the Ito Shiner quite a bit and agree, my presentation is typically slower than with a Vision 110. I've had some really good days with the Ito Shiner when the 110 wasn't as effective and vice versa. The IS seems to do best for me w...

Re: Megabass Addermine, Orochi XX Whipsnake, or Orochi XXX Jade Python

I don't know that MC rod, so I can't offer any comparison there... I do know the other three Megabass rods however. The US Destroyer Addermine is a special rod indeed and a worthwhile investment. It's a bit more powerful than the other two, which fish very similarly to one another. The Addermine is ...

Re: Megabass US Destoyer new models added to lineup

What’s the handle length on the bunker buster? I like that it’s a longer full handle but am hoping it’s not onager long It's not as long as the Onager, which is one excellently balanced big bait rod by the way, neither is Mark 48 which I used to land a giant blue cat below Guntersville dam this wee...

Re: Megabass US Destoyer new models added to lineup

Also maybe you could check something for me. Does the Flyssa have the same length of handle as the Addermine? How does the Flyssa feel in hand? Thanks. The Flyssa and Brigand handles are the same length - a bit more than 1/4" longer than the Addermine as pictured. I've been fishing both now only fo...

Re: Jig/T-rig Rod

What’s MB warranty/CS like? Do they have any type of replacement program for non manufacture/out of warranty misshaps? Their customer service is top notch. I've been dealing with them personally for many years and they take good care of their customers. Here is a link to the Megabass of America web...

Do you have any experience with the H 3’s for comparison? They seem at the top of the list for a lot of people, and a little less expensive by like $50
I do not, but I do have plenty of experience with the Megabass rods...

Re: Jig/T-rig Rod

The Megabass XX Perfect Pitch is an excellent option, or perhaps the XX Diablo Spec R since you aren't fishing anything over 1/2 oz and down to 1/4 oz with very little cover... both of these rods are fantastic, your personal preference of power would determine the right choice between the two.
