Megabass Levante Rods F5-72CG Swingfire
The Megabass Levante F5-72CG is constructed using a composite blank which transitions from graphite to glass, offering an otherworldly combination of carbon’s lightness and backbone, and glass’ forgiveness and feel. Referred to as the Swingfire, the F5-72CG is ideal for shallow, fast moving reactions baits such as the S-Crank and other square bill crankbaits. At 7'2" in length, anglers can make long casts and maximize their lure's time in the strikezone.
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 Swingfire possesses a moderate action due to the composite fiberglass/graphite blank which allows the rod to load up nice when fish strike the lure. This rod will be a popular choice among anglers who fish squarebills around rocky banks or through grass.

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.
