Megabass Orochi XX F4.5-70XX Flat-Side Special
The Megabass Orochi XX Flat-Side Special is a casting rod designed for reaction bait fishing including crankbaits, jerkbaits and topwater lures. Measuring 7ft. long and featuring a regular taper, the F4˝-70XX was engineered as an all-purpose graphite cranking stick, with that all-important parabolic bend for just the right amount of “give,” and launching cranks. The Flat-Side Special is a very versatile reaction bait rod, with applications ranging from vibrating lures and 3/8oz. spinnerbaits to medium-running crank baits. And for anglers who prefer a longer rod for jerk baits and top waters, the F4˝-70XX can pull double-duty with ease.
“The most universal rod in the Double-X line. Works great for everything from light plastics to jigs. You name it, it does it!”

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.
