Phantom 9 FOT #7
( 4-8 days delivery )
The Phantom rods is our new top model, build to meet the standards and needs (and maybe even beyond) of the modern fisherman, no matter if you fish in salt or in freshwater.
We have included knowledge from a bunch of different specialists like Striper Guides in the North east of the US, Seatrout fishermen from Denmark and Sweden, Pike specialists from Holland, Germany and Scandinavia and trout fishermen…..
These rods are built on the base of our former top model; Spook Stalker, but we have upgraded on all flanks, using the absolute best fittings and raw material on the market with absolutely “0” shortcuts. The blank is made of mega high density, unidirectional 45 + 50 ton IM8 Nano Carbon, and we have used SBD and AHT Technology to develop this super light power house.
The action is unbelievable crisp, fast and powerful but still with that great sensitivity we build in all our rods.
To be fully honest; we must admit, that this model is one that we are really proud of!!!
We designed the rod to be matt black all over, even the guides, to avoid flare and spooking shy fish in skinny water. We have also added a layer of woven carbon to the lower part of the rod, to give extra power when needed, like when power casting or battling trophy fish…..and it looks astonishingly good to….
The blank is made with SBD (Slim Blank Design). SBD has many advantages. Blanks are very slim, so they generate less air resistance, something you can feel immediately when driving the rod through the air. As we use the same amount of material, as in a normal blank, the walls are thicker, hence the rod is stronger, and prevent “ovalization” much better, which in turn gives a more crisp and controlled action and maximum dampening of the rod tip. These features are an advantage in many situations, if not all, but maybe especially when tossing flies in the harsh and often windy saltwater environment.
