The Levantes are not being discontinued. They should be available in early 2020. I will get a firmer availability date and share it on here soon.
Any updates?!?
I will post the rerelease date when cleared to do so. I'm pretty excited to get the new ones myself.

Thanks Mr. Perry 8-) Some of those handles look like potential bigger bait sticks, any bones to drop me there? :big grin:
I will try to chase down a full lineup listing and the estimated drop date for Japan on them. If They allow me to share the info publicly right now I will.

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

Those are new additions to the Japan series Destroyers. There has not been a decision made yet as per them being added to US catalogor not. If it is decided to do so I will post it on this thread. A shame if they are not. Would love to have The Dark Sleeper and another model or 2. Any word on relea...

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

I too saw it on THUT's instagram, those instagram story videos disappear after 24hrs or something. There is a new Destroyer being debuted at the Osaka show. New blank, "5-D graphite". This is all I could find on it https://www.lurenewsr.com/84753/ Those are new additions to the Japan series Destroy...

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

Yes, saw it on THUT instagram story. I also noticed one looks to be a chris zaldain signature model with some sort of carbon fiber grip. Hopefully M Perry will see this post and can give us some more detail as to if they are coming stateside and if so, when. They have some cool new lures too; a sma...

Re: Pro Bass Fisherman

You definitely can get access to custom colors and even modified lures. Rods and reels are a bit harder as its not cost effective to do smaller quantity runs of those. You can get access to prototypes that have different actions and features than final production model but those will be in very smal...

How does the tip and backbone of the Otomat compare to the OG XX Flat Side Special?
Tip seens more versatile and lively. I feel like the Otomat has a tad more backbone.

Re: The skinny in the Otomat

Re: One ten special

Its one of my favorites in the US Destroyer lineup. I carry 2 of them in the boat. Good topwater rod as well. I occasionally use it on shaeyheads and even dropshots when using a baitcaster for those presentations.

Re: Megabass levante discontinued?

Were the JDM Levante rods affected by the recall? I keep looking at them to expand my kayak arsenal but it's hard to find any info about them. https://www.megabass.co.jp/site/information/levante/ There are some interesting looking rods in the line up, esp the F5-611LV. I could see it being both a g...

There was a manufacturing defect that caused them to be removed from the market. Shocked it took so long that at this posing they still are not available

Just being very thorough before they are released.
