Completely redesigned for 2019, the LEVANTE features material, blank, and component upgrades to deliver a new standard of lightweight, balanced power. 12 models cover the needs of discerning anglers, showcasing Megabass’ commitment to application-specific design and development.
Incorporating minor refinements to taper, balance point, guide positioning and ergonomics, the LEVANTE evolved through countless hours of testing and invaluable dialogue between customers, pro staff, and the Megabass product team. The result is a more-perfect integration of angler and equipment, allowing for intuitive rod work, sure hooksets, and that all-important, confidence inspiring “feel”.
Featuring upgraded blank material, construction, and Micro Pitch Taping, each LEVANTE is now lighter, more sensitive, and incredibly responsive. Lighter blanks allow for a refinement in balance points, bringing each model closer to the ideal for its intended application. Finished with Fuji® Stainless Steel Alconite guides, custom metal accents, Megabass original reel seat, hook keeper, and a premium color-shifting finish, the LEVANTE is sure to delight old and new Megabass enthusiasts alike.

Designed for finesse presentations like dropshots and neko rigs, the WHIPSNAKE has the sensitivity to feel subtle changes at the end of your line, refined control to impart delicate action, and whip-quick power to unleash decisive hooksets. Extra-fast taper allows for a sensitive tip section that transitions load with silky speed, shifting the weight of the fight into the mid and butt section of the blank to maintain control. Silky-smooth load transfer along WHIPSNAKE’s length maximizes the performance of light line, virtually eliminating the line breakage so often associated with unrefined tapers.
Length: 7’ | Power: 3.5 (Medium-Light) | Taper: Fast | Lure Rating: 1/8oz-1/2oz | Line Rating: 5-16lb

Perfect for shaky heads, wacky rigs, finesse swimbaits, no-sinker, and finesse applications around grass and structure, SHAKYHEAD is the rod to turn to for your power-finesse applications.
Length: 7’4” | Power: 4.5 (Medium) | Taper: Fast | Lure Rating: 1/4oz-5/8oz | Line Rating: 8-20lb
