Phenix XG-4 XStreme Rod
Ideally suited for Striper Trolling with the perfect combination of backbone stiffness and tip flexibility
The rod is ideal for targeting 16-30+ inch stripers using rat-l-trap, P-line deep divers, and other diving lures
As a 7'11" one-piece S-Glass rod, the bite feel is amazing and every fight is epic
This rod is extremely sensitive but has enough power to get the fish going in the direction you need
It's a perfect choice for anglers who enjoy the fight as much as the catch itself.
Phenix offers a limited lifetime warranty on their rods
Okuma Coldwater Low Profile Line Counter Reel
The reel perfectly pairs with the Phenix XG-4 kit rod
25 lbs. of drag balances the delicate sensitivity of the XG-4 by giving you enough power to control the fish and increase catch rate, even while enjoying the tremendous feel of the Phenix XG-4 rod
The mechanical line counter helps you keep track of your lure backset
This reel is highly adaptable and besides striper fishing, can be used for a variety of species including salmon, halibut, and just about all other 3 lbs+ fish types
1-Year manufacturer warranty
Two Top-Producing Lures
P-Line Predator-based custom-made Italian Stallion deep diving lure.
This lure is designed to dive 10-12 feet and should be fished 50-95 feet behind the boat in a 7-20 ft depth
Watch the tutorial for detailed advice and recommendations on using this lure. It's an absolute striper magnet.
Golden Boy, aka Spro Akuru Shad
The Golden Boy outfishes any other striper lure by a huge margin. Its fish production rate is only rivaled by the Italian Stallion.
We spool your reel with 200 yards of 15 lbs test P-Line Flouroclear monofilament line before shipping
We recommend using mono connected directly to the snap swivel, which then connects to your lure
A set of recommended-size snap swivels is also included
Alternatively, you can use a braided line, which has its advantages, however, after countless guided trips our recommendation is to reduce the number of connections and improve the simplicity of re-rigging if you lose your lure and snap-swivel connector on the snag
Our tutorial video covers mono vs braid line consideration in some depth
