The Destroyer F8-78X MARK48 unlocks the full potential of smaller swimbaits. THE MISSING PIECE OF SWIMBAIT RODS! Perfect all round rod for flathead swimbaits, cod swimbaits and even barramundi and mulloway swimbait fishing! The lures focused for estuary and small bait sized swimbait fishing like the Megabass Magdraft 6” and 8”, Gan Craft Jointed claw 148, 178, Baitsanity Antidote, Deps Bullshooter, Bulldoze and Megabass I-SLIDE 185, Molix Shad are ideal for this rod. The 7’8” length and carefully-tuned taper are ideal for imparting action to the I-SLIDE 185, skipping swimbaits, target casting and roll-casting.
The fast action blank and sturdy 7’8” frame is built to drive thick-gauged hooks home with devastating power and take the fight to trophy-class fish. High torsional rigidity of Destroyer blank construction stores more potential energy with each backswing, unleashing maximal cast distance with minimal effort. Finished with double-wrapped, double-footed guides for peak strength and durability to withstand the gruelling demands of trophy anglers.
Each un-sanded blank features the original Destroyer® logo as a nod to its predecessors, and is constructed of a proprietary Hybrid Graphite System. This system integrates carbon of varying modulus into a single blank, selecting the optimal grade for each bend point for a “Hybrid” construction that is effortlessly suited to the task at hand. Combined with our multi-axis build process, each blank stands in its prime, poised to unleash bombing casts and devastating hooksets, while also revealing a deep wellspring of “lifting power” to control the fight. Patented blank-through grip construction, ITO Spiral Architecture Reel Seat, and Head Locker combine to deliver low-profile ergonomics and inspiring feel. Fuji® Titanium SiC® guides are anchored by dual thread-wraps on heavy action models, while stripper guides on all models are finished with a distinctive flourish.
