Never seen before strength, sensitivity, and invisibility. Phantom X is a five-layer Ultra Fluorocarbon and to put it simply, it is the strongest and most invisible fluorocarbon tippet on the market. With very little stretch due to its core, Phantom X allows you to detect the most subtle takes. A unique chemical process of combining FC monomers into polymer chains results in harmony with our unique coating result in abrasion resistance, sensitivity, density, invisibility, and strength never seen before in FC tippet. All spools of Phantom X come with a custom ProBand to keep tippet at the ready when you are on the water.
Design. Innovate. Umpqua.
Ultra Fluoro offers unique advantages to anglers.
Whenever I find myself on a tailwater here in Colorado, I make sure I have this tippet in 5, 6 and sometimes even 7x.
I can’t say whether or not it’s a stealthier material, but I can say that I get better drifts with it. Most importantly, I catch more fish with it (especially in waters like Cheeseman Canyon, and the Dream Stream.)
The material works well when building out tapers on sturdier 4 and 5x leaders to take advantage of both a stiff butt section and delicate tippet ends.
