Those are old news to MB, and it’s doubtful they will go back to them. I prefer the ecs seat and the switch has made it so I’m no longer interested in any of the new MB rod offerings.

Im in the same boat unfortunately. A shame too, because Megabass was my preferred rod brand. Guess I better just hang on to my Gen 1s.

They were a big hit at a tackle show this past weekend. The target is still March but do not be surprised if you see them show up a bit sooner.

Do the spinning models all feature the same style handle, or is the enforcer handle like the xx version?

Thanks, wasn't sure if that was one of those "rods shown are prototypes and subject to change" type pictures.

I don’t see a 2019 Launcher listed for sale at TTT. Is there one in the new lineup?

Currently there are no plans for any glass/composite rods in the Levante lineup.

Bummer, I was hoping for a new version of the Swingfire. I currently have both the Levante G1 and the Orochi XX. The Levante G1 is heavy compared to the XX.

If the sticks show up at a dealer in Ohio by the end of the month I’ll definitely share my thoughts.
