Megabass Orochi XX F5.5-75XX Braillist Rod


The new Orochi XX Braillist chooses bottom-contact applications as its raison d'etre, delivering a dramatic increase in sensitivity that allows anglers to "read" bottom composition with surprising clarity.

The Braillist's tip section has been stiffened to enable precise presentation and control, while also displaying the requisite backbone to crwl and pop jigs out of potential snags. Under increasing load, the F5.5-powered blank bends smoothly to absorb the fight, unlike many traditional heavy-duty jig sticks that "shut off" abruptly in the midsection. This enables Braillist to be fished with lighter line when neeeded, making this model a particularly deadly option for deep, clear water presentations where long casts, sensitivity, a fight-absorbing blank, and the ability to take up slack line quickly are paramount. Anchored by the Kabt metal-microfiber butt section, Braillist has fish-stopping power to control long fights in open water, or pull hard-won targets from vegetation and cover.


  • Multi-tonnage construction: each blank utilizes low-resin carbon of varying tonnage. By matching the desired bend-characteristics of each point to the ideal tonnage, each blank is able to realize ever-greater potential—which translates into silky-smooth load transfer across all taper-types for intuitive cast and feel.
  • Action: Fast
  • Kabt™ (p. ‘kabutoh’): the astonishing tensile strength and tenacious resilience of the Kabt‘s shape-memory metal microfibers are woven into a layered, multi-axis arrangement that reinforces the butt-section of each blank, delivering a superior power-to-weight ratio and more decisive lifting-power and control.
  • Power: Medium Heavy
  • Perfect for the Dark Sleeper bottom-contact swimbait, Texas Rigs and Football Jigs
  • Length: 7'5"
  • Fuji stainless SIC guides
  • Micro-pitch taping: un-sanded finishing tape features higher wrapping-density for increased durability and blank crispness
  • Line rating: 8-20 lb
  • Spiral architect reel seat: a Megabass-original designed for low-profile ergonomics, maximum blank exposure, structural integrity, and efficient grip-shifts when moving from casting to palming.
  • Lure rating: 3/8-1oz
