Re: New Megabass Destroyers

If accurate, the price point is better than I expected. Not cheap by any means but I was thinking they’d be over 500 Yep, much better than I thought. Really digging the dark sleeper (a fast taper!) along with a few other models. June 2020 isn't too long to wait. Need @bronzefly to get the pre-order...

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

Have these been posted anywhere yet? Curious of the individual specs for the models that will be released An Instagram post today indicated that the F5-70X and F6-69X will be the models with the carbon grip. I’m really digging the looks of those carbon grips. Is there a full list of models anywhere...

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

Really hoping the coronavirus doesn't cause a delay in the release of these rods. Sounds like its taking a severe toll on Asian production Looks like its going to take a toll world wide, its just a matter of time. Be safe out there and try to avoid others.... This sucks I work in NYC and they just ...

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

I can confirm that select new models will be available in the US. Trying to nail down a hard release date. I will also post the models selected when I am cleared to do so. Great news! Hopefully the Dark Sleeper is amongst the models that will be available. I'm assuming that you can pre-order from t...

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

I’m thirsty for more info on these, especially the dark sleeper. Already thinking about which rod(s) to sell to pick one or two of these puppies

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

Alright ladies and gents. These must be them. I’m digging the handle nut personally. And the carbon grip models gave me a bit of a megab...r. Even the handles are nicer this way. Can’t wait to read more about the actually technology. The previous (current) new destroyer bummed me out (please don’t ...

They won’t be getting my money, the new destroyers look cheap IMO... Oh well, I need to cut back on my fishing purchases anyway! :lol:
I will say that lock nut doesn’t do much for me. However, I really like the nut on the revoltage rods they showed

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

If the “dark sleeper” model is indeed intended for the dark sleeper then I’m thinking it will be a nice tube rod as well. May have to get one....

Can you share where you saw the post?
The hookup tackle is posting videos in their Instagram story from the show in japan. Some very cool stuff, including the new destroyer rods

Re: Best Megabass Topwater rods?

I’m no megabass expert, but I have an older destroyer cyclone which I absolutely love for top waters and other hard baits. I’d think the new version, or the super cyclone for larger offerings would be a good choice

Re: Megabass Cyclone

Have you gotten to put some time in with the super cyclone? I have an older regular cyclone which I absolutely love so a slightly beefed up model really peaks my interest. Only real hang up for me is that I have a bandersnatch that I use for similar applications. Of course it lends itself more towa...
