2024 OROCHI X10

The spirit of the unknown has awakened.  X10 Organic Fiber Composite Blanks

The X10 is the most significant rod in the OROCHI’s storied history, opening the door of materials innovation to a better future. Inspired by the Japanese government’s commitment to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which focus on global goals of social, cultural, environmental, and economic wellbeing, X10 integrates naturally derived blank material to take another step towards better stewardship of our angling future.

X10 organic fibers harness flax cellulose microfibrils, the orthogonal layers that provide much of the structure of plant walls. Deployed in select Porsche® and BMW® racecars, natural fiber is quickly emerging as a viable alternative to artificial carbon fiber in select applications, due to its superior damping and shock-absorbing characteristics. Experimenting with this material throughout the blank production process, Megabass engineers selected X10 as a finishing wrap that extends from the rear grip to the mid-section. The proprietary organic fibers of the X10 exhibit several unique characteristics. Firstly, they are lighter than their carbon counterparts. Secondly, organic fibers exhibit superior dampening properties, suppressing the blanks unwanted axial shake. This not only reduces extraneous “noise” to channel key information to the angler’s hands but tames excess vibration for a quicker blank-recovery rate and reduced angler fatigue. Lastly, X10 is highly shock-absorbent, adding a protective layer to shield the blank’s carbon fiber core from external stressors.

The core blank of the OROCHI X10 leverages the ultra-lightweight carbon graphite of the DESTROYER® series. Produced with a special composite method, this premium carbon material delivers the kind of sharp sensitivity and crisp control that has led to the DESTROYER’s legendary outperformance. Wrapped around this high-performance core from the mid-section through the base of the rod is the X10 organic fiber composite. With its superior damping control, it enables a more direct and intuitive connection between angler and equipment, exhibiting a blank flex that is a joy to experience.

Hand-carved by Yuki Ito, the IAS reel seat took shape through careful analysis of the reel-palming grips of top professionals. A study in ergonomic minimalism, the forming process leaves only the necessary tactile surfaces to support intuitive grip and feel. This lightweight, reductionist approach results in a pure competition-spec reel seat that embodies confident operability.

Built for power fishing, the sculpted design and long trigger provide overwhelming grip for big bait and heavy cover applications. Whether one or two-finger casting or utilizing a full-palm retrieve, ITS is designed to accommodate various grip styles with confidence.

The fast-back design of the reel seat bridge fits deep in the palm of the hand, providing increased contact points to improve feel and control in spinning applications. The IES’s sweeping, tapered fore-grip allows direct contact with the exposed blank, enhancing the kind of delicate bite- detection that is required in deep finesse fishing.
Orochi Aluminum Machine-Cut Hood The head-locking mechanism is machine-cut from a solid block of high-grade aluminum, delivering uncompromising strength and rigidity. Machining expertise has enabled a lightweight, high-strength design that is finished with weight-saving cutouts and shallow knurling for enhanced grip.

OROCHI X10 Original Tight Threading
The masterful thread work of the OROCHI X10 is a functional artistry unique to Megabass. Elegant tourmaline-green base threads made of fine, semi-transparent fibers are finished with lustrous and tough monofilament Air Force Scuro thread accents to create an exceedingly tight and secure guide threading.

ITO Engineering is pleased to introduce a blank material derived from sustainable fibers, taking another step towards better stewardship of the world we all love and fish. Harnessing this advanced material derived from renewable flax cellulose microfibrils, Megabass has launched a project to create a true heir to the Orochi, the mythological water dragon and patron spirit of Megabass rods. The project is code-named X10: “X” for the ineffable spirit of the Orochi; “1” for the first bass rod utilizing this new material; and “0” for the organic fibers harnessed for sustainable performance.

The JADE PYTHON, the renowned high-power spinning model, has been revitalized with X10. organic fiber. The X10 material reinforces the rigidity of the butt section, which allows anglers to attack tangled timber and intricate bushes with lightweight rigs. In addition to its high torque. characteristics, the new JADE PYTHON benefits from the X10’s lightweight construction for nimble handling and integrated feel. With the kind of sensitivity that enables the angler to trace bottom composition with clarity, JADE PYTHON stands out in subtle transition areas, sparse cover and complicated structure where navigation happen by feel alone. JADE PYTHON also excels in long. distance applications with minnows, shad, and small vibrations in windy situations when
baitcasting equipment often under-delivers. A masterpiece of high-torque spinning is reborn for modern waters.
