Well I had to. New Megabass rod incoming. Pictures Added.

Recommended Posts

I've been eyeballing this rod for some time now. Years in fact. However I never could bring myself to pay 4 figures for it.

I understand the rod will ship Monday. I hope to have it by Wednesday. :) Will be more than likely paired with this reel.

I figured you would go with a Pagani P300.  Plat has them at 20% off.

I can't stop ogling this rod. It's beautiful. It'll get a good workout this spring. :) Here's some pictures I took.

Rod comes with its own flannel shirt.

The ferrule fits nicely. Again awesome detail.

I think the yellow Pixzilla looks great against the bamboo. The cork grips tie it all together.

The classic round reel looks at home here as well.

My first rod was a split bamboo casting rod.  It eventually broke.  It had a Zebco 33 on it, which was a huge upgrade from the Flooger knuckle-buster that was originally on it.

I don't think I could have any interest in a combo like that. Now, all that liquor in the back ground...
