Aaron Martens tries out new Megabass rods


Megabass, long known for producing quality rods and reels, is expanding their American line. With names like Fast Moving Special, Extreme Mission Type F and Flapping Shaft, these rods are set to open new horizons for bass anglers.


There are 13 in all, each made with 30 ton super-low resin carbon material impressed into the shaft. Additional manufacturing processes increase sensitivity and give the rod additional twist rigidity.


These rods are technique specific. Topwater, cranking, heavy cover cranking and Shaky Fish serve as examples. There are three models for pitching and flipping, one for light work, one for medium applications and one for heavy cover.
