Over the years, fishing techniques have evolved, incorporating innovations and strategies to keep up with the ever-changing aquatic world. Among these, slow pitch jigging has emerged as a standout, steadily climbing the ladder of popularity among anglers around the world. Originating from the fishing cultures of Japan, this technique is more than just a trend—it's a revolution in the realm of fishing. At the heart of this revolution is the essential equipment that makes it all possible: the slow pitch jigging rod.
It's not just about having any rod; it's about having the *right* rod. Dark Matter Planet X Slow Pitch Jigging Casting Rods were specifically designed for slow pitch jigging, possessing the right characteristics that set them apart from the typical jigging or bottom fishing rods. When it comes to fishing, the equipment you use can make or break your experience. And in the realm of slow pitch jigging, the rod stands out as the star of the show. Planet X rods are built using Dark Matter technology to not only create a blank that is strong yet lightweight but also to deliver the perfect actions necessary when slow pitch jigging.
These rods are outfitted with spiral wrapped Fuji Alconite K Guides. Not only are the guides terrific but by spiral wrapping them it eliminates the line getting wrapped around your tip when you're moving it with finesse and rhythm to get the jig to move through the water properly. The butt section is stripped down to decrease weight but we added some custom shaped EVA at the base for comfort on your forearm. We added a polycarbonate gimbal on the end so it doesn't spin the rod holder.
As with all our rods, style and beauty is just as important as function. Dark Matter Planet X Slow Pitch Jigging Casting Rods are Carolina Blue with white accents that really make the color pop. Hopefully this brings you joy on the water.
Dark Matter Planet X Slow Pitch Jigging Casting Rods are 5'8" and available in two models. Choose from a 340g and 500g models.
