Megabass Levante Rods F5-711CG Launcher
Constructed upon a composite graphite/fiberglass blank, the Megabass Levante F5-711CG has the powerful carbon backbone necessary to launch deep-diving cranks, and that smooth, parabolic bend for sweeping hooksets. Engineered for big, deep diving crankbaits, the 7'11" F5-711CG Launcher provides angler with the ultimate rod for the hard pulling plugs including the Deep-six, DD22 and Strike King 6XD among others. Megabass designed the rod with a solid graphite backbone that blends into a glass tip section which delivers just the right amount of forgiveness, capturing bites with confidence.
Megabass' Levante series of rods represents Megabass most ambitious effort to date: a sub $200 rod that lives up to the Megabass reputation for quality above all. The Launcher model is one of the more technique specific rods in the bunch, designed for the sole purpose of fishing deep diving, hard pulling crankbaits. The 7'11" length enables long casts that keep the crankbait in the primary strike zone for longer periods of time.

About the Levante Series
Striving towards a perfect union between the discerning hands of North American anglers and Megabass’ industry leading innovation, design, and performance, the Levante marks the 2nd Megabass rod series developed exclusively for North America.
The Levante series draws upon the proven actions of the Orochi XX, and re-imagines them with the latest innovation in Japanese carbon material technology from Mistubishi Rayon: PYROFIL. This groundbreaking advance in synthetic polymer chemistry ushers in a dramatic increase in strength and durability without any loss to the sensitivity, performance, or precise bend characteristics anglers have come to expect from Megabass rods.
Hidden underneath the finishing wrap lies a carefully layered multi-axis blank construction, designed with precise patterns to maximize the potential of each rod action. These game-changing blanks are brought to life with carefully positioned Fuji Alconite guides, an exquisite matte finish, custom EVA grips, and a Megabass original reel seat inspired by the ergonomic comfort and technical precision of the flagship ARMS series.
The result is a series designed to unlock angling potential, delivering 12 models with performance characteristics carefully honed at the hands of elite North American anglers.
