Megabass Orochi XX F3-611XXS Dropshot
Designed to the tournament specs of renowned finesse angler Aaron Martens, the Megabass Orochi XX F3-611XXS Dropshot is a spinning rod built to have the ideal length, taper, and feel required for critical drop shot bites. With a medium-fast taper, the F3-611XXS Dropshot has the perfect blend of tip and backbone required to handle finesse rigs and haul your fish straight to the live well. The length and taper are also well suited for shaky head fishing, as well as small crank baits, jerk baits and wacky-rigged soft plastics. For many anglers, the versatility of this rod will allow the F3-611XXS to satisfy all their spinning tackle techniques.
“The F3-611XXS is a great 7-10lb. line drop shot rod. It’s excellent for throwing 4 to 6 inch worms, and ideally suited for places like the great lakes, Guntersville, Clear Lake or anywhere where you are fishing for bigger fish. I would recommend it for anything from 1/16th to ˝ ounce drop shot setups. This is not your average ultra-light tackle drop shot rod. “

About Orochi XX Series
Inspired by the Orochi, the ancient dragon god of water, the Orochi XX series seeks to capture the raw power and control of its namesake through Megabass’ cutting-edge multi-axis blank manufacturing process, and an uncompromising eye for quality.
Crafted of super low-resin carbon up to the 40-ton grade, the materials of each Orochi blank are custom matched to the rod’s intended application. Each blank features a vertical-axis carbon core wrapped with a 2-axis XX-Micro Carbon layer, followed by an additional vertical-axis carbon layer.
Each blank is then finished off with a 4-axis carbon wrap that goes from the butt section to the mid-section, for a total of 6-axis. Since carbon material is strongest along its axis, this unique manufacturing process adds significant strength to combat blank twist and improve overall structural integrity—all without adding unnecessary weight.
Each Orochi XX is purpose-built for tournaments, and the Megabass craftsmen know that a single cast can make all the difference. Each rod has a carefully selected range of tangle-free Fuji KWSG, KR-H, and Fuji small caliber Alconite guides for smooth casting and increased sensitivity; Fuji reel seats; Megabass custom ITO Head Locking Reel Seat (PAT.); a rubber/cork composite end cap to protect against fierce hook sets; and lastly, that fit and finish you can only expect from Megabass.
