Megabass Orochi XX F5-72XX - Diablo Spec-R
Think ultimate versatility, that's what the Megabass Orochi XX F5-72 casting rod brings to the table. Inspired by one of Aaron Martens’ favorite limited edition Megabass rods, the F5-72XRC Racing Condition, the Diablo Spec-R is perhaps the most versatile rod in the lineup. Excellent for larger fast-moving plugs, vibrating swim jigs, spinnerbaits, and even larger jerkbaits like the Magnum and Ito Shiner, Texas rigs and weightless worms, the Diablo’s fast action and perfect balance provide effortless performance on the water.
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.
