Finally, after 3 years my Megabass Slant Bridge collection is complete.

Recommended Posts

The final rod that I needed to complete my collection literally took 2 years to find. Persistance and a lot if luck finally paid off, in the form of a literally brand new Megabass Super Destruction F8 78DG. Now I know I dont have 'all' of the slant bridge rods, but that's only because the others I know I wont use. All of these rods, will see some use from time to time.

What kind of leather do you make? I might want to do it for a living :)

I have some ugly stick combos that look nicer than those. But I'll tell you what... I'd be more than happy to take those off of your hands and trade them for yours.  ;D

Just kidding. Those look awesome. Those are truly representative of the perfect blend of combining art and beauty with functionality . Gotta pick my jaw off the ground.  8-)

I like the bar more. ;D

And Redline out of curiousuy when I was going to buy a Megabass I read a lot of horrible things abou their warranty program that really turned me off. What is the truth on it?

Megabass warranty is an oxymoron.   ;D

Unfortunately, you don't buy these rods worrying about a warranty.  If you break it don't expect a replacement or even a discount on a replacemet.  To make matters even more frustrating, Megabass has a history of discontinueing rods for no apparent reason.  Once they decide they wont make a rod any more, regardless of how well they sell, that's it.  I actually think that's kind of cool that they do that. 

Take for example my Diablo SB.  I consider myself pretty lucky to have one, as less than 100 were made for world wide sales.  In fact I understand that the ones that were made were mistakes, as so few actually ended up for sale.  That's probably one of the reasons why when you do see one for sale, they get snatched up pretty fast.  The last 2 that were sold that I know of, went for a cool grand each!

That's quite a collection and I know "collecting" is fun!

Do you actually use them; fish them once and put

them back on display; or take them with you on

special outings (Brazil)?

I would want to fish each rig for a day, catch some

fish to know how it feels on each rig, then simply display

the collection after that.

Just curious how you handle "collectibles".

Excellent collection. As a collector of many things in the past I know how it feels to complete the quest. It seemed like the chase was more fun than finally reaching the goal, so my "collecting" never stopped. I can't wait to see what your up to next.

The Steez collection is nice, but doesnt hold a candle to Megabass.

I use all of these rods RW.  Depending what or where I'm fishing, they all see use.  The Mephisto in fact, was my go to rod in Brazil.  It was tailor made for throwing the giant prop bait.

What's a steez? ;D

Awesome collection!

Steez are the production bling rods that we middle class must settle for unlike the Megabass that is for the upper class budget, those with enough $$$ that the warranty doesnt matter.   I am so jealous !

WOW...Very nice collection.  I will say, your modified GLX BCR893 with the Slant Bridge Handle (the one displayed on another thread) is the nicest rod I have ever laid my eyes one.  Great Work on that whole collection.
