The Levante is resdesigned for 2019. Been fishing them since late spring and very happy with the changes. I have one I cannot put down and love using it. Still a few months{early 2019) out before they are publicly released but in the meantime now is the time to grab up the first generation models at MB dealers as there are some great deals to be had. As I am allowed I will post details and pictures of new models but please be patient. I have been in stealth mode hiding the new version in my boat unless I am fishing solo. Will be nice to let others see them soon... :lol:

I wouldn't mind seeing a longer handle version of the Leviathon....

The new Levante models will mirror the new XX lineup in regards to individual models.

And after having the opportunity to fish a few new 2019 Levante models, I'm very happy with the changes. They are a significant improvement over the previous generation in all aspects in my opinion. I'm looking forward to these getting out there in 2019.

Much like in the XX series I can attest that the Perfect Pitch model is simply a special rod. I almost hate putting it down. The new look is pretty sharp too.

My first impression was that they look and feel like a Megabass rods. I can say they're tough too because I foul hooked the foot of a very big, very angry snapping turtle in a culvert on the Whipsnake :lol: I put some serious pressure on that rod getting that angry reptile to the boat so we could carefully get the hook out of it's foot!

I was wondering if they’d update the Levante line and actually make them worthwhile. I was skeptical, but now I’m kind of excited! Can’t wait to get a peek at their design.

Hope it's a bigger update than the xx series. Found that update kinda disappointing.

Very sorry to hear the XX disappointed you. The feedback and sales have proven it was a well received update. Hopefully you give the new Levante a look and you like what you see.
