Daiwa Phantom Carp Rod 12FT 3LB TEST
Daiwa Phantom Carp Rod
The Daiwa Phantom Carp Rod has been modelled on the design of the brand’s incredible Black Widow rod range. Looking to pair value for money with staggering performance, this rod has been designed with novice and budget carp anglers in mind. So, whether you’re looking to set out on your carp fishing career or you’re simply after a top quality bit of kit that won’t break the bank then the Daiwa Phantom rod is for you.
If you were to go on looks alone you would easily be mistaken for thinking that this rod is double or triple is actual price. In a carpy matt black, this rod looks at home with the Infinity and Longbow rod ranges despite being a fraction of the cost. However, the dedicated angler knows that looking good on the bank only has a fraction to do with the appearance of your kit – the rest comes from its performance capabilities and how you use it.
The Phantom has a strong backbone with a progressive tip action. This means that you can tackle a hard fighting and aggressive carp with relative ease. The strength in the backbone gives you the power to control the carp whilst the progressive tip action is forgiving enough that is avoids hook pulls and allows you to play the fish right under the tip.
The guides on this rod are made from titanium oxide, ensuring they are resistant to the nicks and cuts that occur naturally when you’re casting out at high speeds. Not only this but the guides are attached with double legs, ensuring that this rod offers al;l the flexibility you require.
If you are looking to revamp your tackle bag but you don’t want to break the bank, this Daiwa Phantom is the perfect carp rod for you.
