First look at Megabass Destroyer USA rods

Post by M Perry » Thu Feb 09, 2017 11:05 am

Please move/delete if this post is out of line but wanted to let everyone know their is an ad in the new Bassmaster Magazine showing the new Megabass Destroyer USA rods. This is the public's first look. They will be officially unveiled at the Classic next month and should start shipping to dealers in April. There will be a link on the Megabass USA site that will go live next week and will show more pictures and specs. I will post the link when I get the clearance to do so. I also have some personal pix of the new rods I will post when cleared to do so. In the meantime I just wanted to give evryone the heads up. Thanks and good fishing to everyone.

They look very similar to the 2016 Destroyers. I like it. I wonder what type of guides are on there...

And the choice to use classic "Destroyer" logo rather than the block logo on the 2016 JDM Destroyer model was a good one. I have a bunch of photos of these as well from my time on the water with them, just haven't been cleared to post them yet. I can say that these are going to turn some heads at their price point, and the line up is well thought out and will make a lot of guys very happy!!

Of course, The Tackle Trap will start running pre-orders as soon as given the green light hoping for an April ship \:D/
