The Freak with E-Chip
Phantom Lures, widely known for its design and manufacture of tournament-winning muskie lures and innovative walleye crankbaits, is excited to announce that “The Freak,” one of the company’s topwater baits for muskies, will now include Pro-Troll E-Chip technology.
Electro-Location is the primary tool fish use to determine what and where to strike.
In August of 2017, Phantom announced its partnership with Pro-Troll, who produces the world’s first microchip designed to go into a lure and replicate the voltage that is discharged by the nervous system of live bait. This technology brings real life to artificial bait. While sight, smell and sound bring fish to an area, Electro-Location is the primary tool fish use to determine what and where to strike. Used by over one million anglers worldwide, the E-Chip is scientifically proven to attract more and bigger fish.
“We are very excited to release the E-Chip series Freak to the Phantom lineup,” stated Phantom Lures Co-Owner, Roger Neilson, Jr. “The technology that Pro-Troll offers with their E-Chip is remarkable and when combined with our Phantom Lures, it is sure to put more fish in the boat.”
The E-Chip will be placed on The Freak near the rear hook, making a bait that already excels in grabbing the attention of muskies, even more appetizing. The E-Chip never needs charging or batteries therefore an angler never needs to worry about it wearing out.
