Revolution brings destructive change. This DESTROYER is king of them all.
In 1995, Yuki Ito prototyped the Destroyer of traditional bass rods, drawing upon his hand-carved ARMS to unleash an unrivaled fusion of craft and technological innovation upon the Japanese bass market. Each subsequent generation of Destroyer reached beyond the standards and conventions of their time to establish a new benchmark. A quarter-century later, “Project Living Legend” was established to ensure that each cycle of destruction and creation through innovation preserved Megabass’ rich DNA, bringing anglers ever-closer to the ideal.
Guided by this spirit, the LAIHA program gave birth to a limited concept rod series in 2019, developed to test and refine standard-destroying technologies to push innovation past present limits. From this tireless effort, the 5-D Graphite System was born. Representing a paradigm shift in the blank construction process, 5-D enables a more perfect realization of the Destroyer through a new method of patterning and layering, unlocking untold potential.
Thus, with each generation, all change, especially destructive, is embraced in the technological pursuit of the angling ideal. Out of this cycle, Destroyer rises anew to challenge anglers to new heights.
F2.1/2-76XS "Flyssa": Renowned for its light and sensitive blank, the Flyssa is designed to manage light line applications with quiet confidence. Developed primarily for finesse swimbaits, hair jigs and spybaits, Flyssa's 5-d construction also exhibits the kind of sensitivity and silky-smooth load transfer that excels in pressured deep-water situations. Flyssa’s construction makes it a formidable weapon for deep water dropshot presentations because of its balance, leverage and perfect load. These traits come together to capture and hold targets, even when using the smallest of hooks.
