Megabass Orochi XX F5.5-75XX Braillist

Whereas the new EMTF zeroed-in on treble-lure applications, the new OROCHI XX BRAILLIST chose bottom-contact applications as its raison d’être, delivering a dramatic increase in sensitivity that allows anglers to “read” bottom composition with surprising clarity.

The BRAILLIST’s tip section has been stiffened just-so to enable precise presentation and control, while also displaying the requisite backbone to crawl 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 mid-section. This enables BRAILLIST to be fished with lighter line when needed, 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.

The BRAILLIST is a perfect pair for the Dark Sleeper bottom-contact swimbait, Texas rigs and football jigs.

Tip: If you’re someone who wants even more feedback, be sure to try braid + fluorocarbon leader. The lack of stretch means every “tick” is sharper, while the fluorocarbon leader will protect braid from deadly abrasion as it comes through rock and structure.

Specifications:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Micro-Pitch Taping: Un-sanded finishing tape features higher wrapping-density for increased durability and blank crispness.
  • Fuji® Stainless SiC Guides
