Light and maneuverable, the F3-68X4 has a lot of versatility for medium-weight casting applications. With a fairly-soft taper, the F3-68X4 is ideally suited for jerkbaits like the Vision 110, which at times requires the subtle manipulations that only a softer tip can provide in order to trigger strikes. Small to medium crankbaits, texas-rigged worms, and jigs from 1/8oz. to 1/4oz. are also ideally suited when paired with 8-12lb. test Dragon Call line.

A new generation light-moving rod displays ultra light X4 graphite matrix’s true value. Power force F3 by the X4 provides an exciting rod action that was not likely seen before. It has created masterpiece of orochi peak performance “Rattle Viper’s” high-tension version-light action rod. It is a rod that could efficiently use light moving baits such as small size crank bait and jerk baits such as GRIFFON and Z-CRANK FLAT SIDE, light weight spinner baits, small size vibration, and top water plugs. The extremely sharp high elasticity character shown by the X4 matrix displays and outstanding performance as a long distance search rod, casting small size vibrations in a long distance. The “sharpness-light blanks” proud of its amazing lightweight is a shaft the light pluggers around the country has been waiting for. Finally it is the time to display the true value of the new generation Megabass rod technology.

The rods of Megabass Pros Aaron Martens, Shin Fukae and Randy Blaukat on the BASS Elite and FLW Tours, the Orochi X4 series represent Megabass’ most significant development in multi-axis blank technology. Featuring proprietary Hi-Tension Active X4 Matrix blanks, Megabass has built a rod that is both lighter and stronger. This seeming contradiction is made possible by two technological advances:

– Active X4 Matrix wrap
– Adaptive 40 and 46 ton high modulus graphite

The Active X4 Matrix increases tension and stiffness significantly with a 4-axis carbon graphite wrap (think “X” superimposed on “+” to get an idea of the pattern). These exceedingly tough fibers wrap tightly around the blank from butt-end to second guide, increasing backbone, leverage and power on the water without adding unnecessary bulk.
However, a wrap can never substitute for blank construction—and Megabass does not disappoint. The Orochi X4 features an adaptive blank of carefully selected 40 and 46 ton graphite. This allows for truly adaptive blank construction that takes into account the specific needs of each stress-point under varying load-levels—meaning that every single inch of your blank is optimally tuned with the best graphite for the job. This adaptive core is further reinforced by its own braided 2-axis “XX” pattern micro-carbon fiber cross-weave, which runs the entire length of the blank.

The X4 series is rounded-out with Fuji stainless steel SiC guides, custom reel seats, and an aggressively tapered handle (on baitcasting models only) inspired by US pro anglers. This grip features a quick taper behind the reel seat that not only feels more comfortable hour after hour, but also increases your gripping power by providing a more manageable size for your third and fourth finger. This taper extends a few inches, then settles into a slim handle that stays out of the way when working jerbaits and jigging, etc.

With a blank that starts off with adaptive graphite construction, followed by a 2-axis micro carbon fiber wrap, finished off with a 4-axis carbon backbone—you get a rod that is incredibly strong and resistant to off-axis torque, yet also light and exceptionally sensitive. And with ergonomic grips and a 3-Year Warranty, you will be comfortably fishing this rod for years to come.
