The Megabass Orochi XX F8-79XX is perfectly suited for medium to heavy duty flipping and pitching. This rod is designed to flip and pitch ¼ to 1oz. lures into the thickest cover you can find. The rod has a perfect blend of lightness and power, which is crucial to the versatility needed to perform a traditional 10ft. flip on one cast, then a 30 foot pitch on the next. The F8-79XX has the power to muscle the fish out of the thickest vegetation mats or wood cover. Ideal for not only pitching Texas-rigged soft plastics and jigs, the Aaron Martens Flipping Special can also pull double-duty as an excellent swimbait rod.
“The Flipping Special is the nicest flipping stick I've ever used. It’s excellent for flippin’ heavy line even with a light weight. What separates this rod is you can flip weights as small as 1/8 - 1/4 oz. and its still very sensitive and lightweight. It’s perfect for ½ oz. - 1 ½ oz. flippin’ rigs. Its sweet spot is at 1 ounce, where it is ridiculous. It’s great for punching as well with weights from 1/2 ounce to 1 ¼ oz. This rod is light and sensitive, yet it has got some serious beef to it.”
