The Favorite Phantom Casting Rods offer high end performance features and sleek cosmetics that can’t be missed, all while sneaking into Favorite’s line up at an incredible value. Built around a perfectly balanced Skyflex 30-ton Korean manufactured blank constructed with Favorite’s Multi Layer Structure technology, these blanks are produced from a layering process where carbon of different modulus and different fiber directions are strategically layered on top of one another to achieve the desired rod action, increase durability, and lower weight. Favorite has also added their FX Grid technology to the mix where an x-like carbon tape is wrapped throughout the butt and middle sections of the blank for increased rod power. While the Phantom’s blanks are impressive, it may just be the components that steal the show. The Phantom boasts a carbon fiber reel seat top, a ghostly camouflage EVA split grip handle, and an exposed skeletal rod grip for increased sensitivity and feel.
