The Amazing JigStar Phantom Jig Rods
If you are looking for the ultimate weapon combining presentation and power, you have just found your rod!
The Phantom was developed out of a personal request. A customer asked Chris Wong to design and produce a 5’7? rod suitable for jigging Dogtooth Tuna. Chris knew that the most successful Japanese jigs were about 200g so he needed to design the rod with a light tip but with plenty of butt power to handle 200lb fish. The Phantom was born!

The Phantom is a 5’7? rod with great butt power and a light, and very fast tip. Even though the Phantom was developed as a jigging rod for targeting Dogtooth Tuna its great design and versatility allows the Phantom to double down as an outstanding live or dead bait rod for chasing many species. The tip not only works lighter jigs but is also sensitive enough to transmit those pre-bite panic vibrations from live baits early enough to prepare the angler for the impending chaos. The longer rod length allows easier maneuvering around outboards and other obstacles.

The Phantom has been 3 years in the making involving hardcore Dogtooth Tuna sessions as well as multiple trips to the 3 Kings with different jiggers until the Jig Star Team was happy with it’s design. The blank is High Performance Graphite from Toray® of Japan with advanced Nano technology and features our standard specifications including Fuji® PSS/DPS Reel Seats with the latest Fuji® K Frame SIC Guides and custom components.

The Overhead model also features the innovative “ACID” or “SPIRAL” design.
