Duckett Ghost Series Casting Rods

In keeping with Duckett Rods' philosophy of offering high-end rods at an affordable price, Duckett Rods introduces the new Duckett Ghost Series Casting Rods. Featuring new Sensi-Touch blanks made from the highest quality multi-modulus pre-pegs, each blank is also Halo-Sanded to produce a stronger, lighter rod with greater sensitivity. Duckett Rods’ tried-and-true actions and tapers are perfect for a range of bass fishing applications, and each rod is weighted and balanced to perfection like all Duckett Rods.

Premium Micro Guides with proprietary 316 Stainless Steel frames and industrial-grade hard chrome inserts span each blank as well, eliminating the problem of ring loss and increasing sensitivity. A true split-reel seat provides complete access to the blank for better transmission of vibration into your hands, and also forms a comfortable platform in conjunction with the high-impact, cut-resistant EVA split grips. Premium rods at a reasonable price, the Duckett Ghost Series Casting Rods are scary good.

Comments: I purchased one of these at the Dick's Sporting goods booth at the Classic this year. I've been wanting to try a Duckett out for a long time just never could come up with the extra 50-100 bucks for the white ice or micro magic. I paired my 6'8 Ghost with a Bantam Curado and use it for my spinner baits. That's my workhorse!! I use that lure for about 65% of the day and it has held up wonderfully. I hope that in a few weeks I can get another for my buzzbait and one more for my worm. Highly recommend the Ghost series. Well designed rod.

Comments: great rod. I was looking for the old carrot stix that Duckett used to be with, but after some searching I bought the 7'6 XH. It is amazing light and with the micro guides paired with my chronarch ci4+ it casts far! Caught a few 3lber lmb, walleyes and northerners and it's great!

From: Moua: Saint Paul, MN 7/5/14

Comments: I bought a few of these over the winter, and liked them. I didnt want to leave a review till I put them to the test. I have caught a lot of largemouth on them with no problems,and I just fished a BFL on St.Clair,where I caught numerous smallies, including big bass for the tournament, a 6 lb toad! I have ten glx's, and five 13 fishing envy rodz. I like these Ducketts as much if not more than my other rods. no complaints here

From: Josh: Plymouth, IN 6/29/14

Comments: Great rods I just added two more to my collection! They blow the Wright McGill garbage out of the water for the same price! I love the 7 ft med cranking Ghost the best excellent tip to allow me to throw small cranks even the KVD'S 1.0! Very lightweight and sensitive! Only con I wish the grips were a tad thinner! None of mine have any misaligned eyes or reels seats etc! Infact of them I have handled in any store are flawless!

From: Daniel: Loudon, TN 6/24/14

Comments: Duckett ghost casting rods are the best rods I've ever used. I caught an 8 pounder on my 6'10" medium. The rod held up great, never had a problem with it.

From: Carson: Colleyville, TX 6/23/14

Comments: I got a 7' MH and 7'3 H casting and have loved them until yesterday. I snapped the rod clean right in the middle on a hook set yesterday. I threw a 1/2 oz football head under a dock in 10 foot of water with mono on and I was 20 yds away and the thing snapped. Still got the fish in though lol not sure how I feel about them now, I fish 180 days a year and they went from one of my favorites to one I cannot trust.

From: Kyle: OH 6/18/14

Comments: Just picked up a 7'6 extra heavy today! Feels more like a heavy than extra heavy but tested casting in my backyard (paired with Chronarch)threw a 5/8 ounce Spro frog and it cast a mile.Just gotta test it out this weekend to really see how well it holds up. Idk about you guys but I would RECOMMEND looking at the rods before you buy it. Some guides are off and looks like it got little cracks on the glue holding the guides. But overall great buy for the money.

From: Pro: MN 6/4/14

Comments: I just picked up my duckett 6'8 MH and paired it with a pfluger supreme xt. Rod came off very light and in great shape. So I put it to the test and caught tiger muskies out of bluewater state park and I must say it preforms excellent.  It had no problem holding up to a 39 inch 19 pound tiger. Excellent product

From: Joshua: Grants, NM 5/23/14

Comments: I have 4 micro split and 4 Ghost and have had no problems with any of them. These are by far the best all around rods that you can buy for the money. I will have all Ducketts on my reels by the end of the year.

From: Jarrod: Kountze, TX 5/20/14

Comments: I have recently purchased on of these rods. Right off the bat I was impressed. Everything on the rod was perfect, however I have caught 100 or so fish on it and my rod is starting to get a slight bend downward and the guides are getting rough. It makes my braid fray like crazy and often break. Hope duckett will fix this problem.

From: Matt: MI 5/17/14

Comments: Great rods for the money. I used to hoave the Skeet Reese rods and these Duckett rods blow them out of the water for the same price. Super light and very sensitive. Some do have defects like off center guides and stuff, just take your time picking one out in the store and you'll be good to go. 7' Medium spinning handled several over 3 1/2 very well this weekend.  

From: Chris: Lake Lanier, GA 4/15/14

Comments: i just got the 7 ft med heavy. its a nice rod and the guides dont seem too bad. the reel seat is off center by a few degrees and thats gonna bug me i guarantee it. ill probably get used to it but its a slight mistake that shouldnt come from a company like duckett

From: J: USA 4/10/14

Comments: This is a great rod for the money. the 7'3" medium heavy has a great backbone. I hoisted a 6 lb out of so think branches. I used to be an Abu guy. I think I have found my new favorite rod company. Will be getting more!

From: Dakota: SD 4/8/14

Comments: Got my Duckett Ghost today and the quality on it isn't that great. One of my guide is slightly off and my handle has a marking on it which bothers me a lot. Quality sucks for a $100 rod.

From: Nick: WI 4/7/14

Comments: Pure Duckett. I have been looking for another rod that I can throw 3/8 and 1/4 oz. traps with, and still feel what the rod is doing. This rod is it. Sensitive, strong, light. Everything I was looking for, and then some. Wish it was 7 foot instead of 6/10, but I can live with that. Overall a great rod at an even better price.  

From: Hank: IL 4/7/14

Comments: I picked up two 7'3 one is a MH and the other is H. They are very light and sensitive. I have lew's laser mg reels on both rods. In my opinion, the MH is just right, it's not to heavy but not to light either, same for the H. I have braid on the H rod and with the stainless steel eyes it does make a little noise. Also, on the H rod the eyes are off almost a quarter inch to the left, but has not effected the performance. So far I haven't had any problems out of it. Overall it seems to be a well built rod.

From: J.C.: MI 3/31/14

Comments: The tapered EVA handle is not comfortable to hold onto and feels like the rod is slipping out of your hand when you cast. There isn't enough material for your pinky and ring finger to hold onto. I was surprised to see all Duckett rods appear to be built like this. I'm used to full cork so hopefully I will get used to it once broken in. Rod looks great and sensitive but fish weren't biting first day out so can't tell how it handles a fish. The 7' MH seemed a little softer than I expected but should be fine.

From: Rob: Champaign, IL 3/23/14

Comments: Purchased this rod a few days ago and I'm glad I did. It has enough backbone to fight the fish and tip flex to keep them on. The micro guides are a plus. I can feel the lights of bites. I paired the 6'8mhvy with a Lews Tournament Pro, 10lbs senshi fluro, and added a 1/16 tungsten bullet. Killer finesse worm combo.

From: Mike: Norman Park, GA 3/9/14

Comments: Just got my 6'10" ghost yesterday and took it on the water today didn't catch anything on it but the rod is so light balanced and castl like a dream. The action feels perfect for jerk baits.

From: Jessie: Independence, LA 3/7/14

Comments: I've purchased 9 of these and have no problems with them.the quality is great and the price is great.I'm not worried about these rods any problems Duckett will take care of it.they are great people and a great product.

From: S. King: Fyffe, AL 3/7/14

Comments: I just bought a 7'3'' and I was in shock when I fished with it. the best rod I have in my boat. this rod has a lot of back bone and just the right amount of tip. this rod is three times better than all the other duckets. I have it paired up this a shimano curado with 65 pound braid. one word describes this rod PERFECT. I highly recommend this rod. it is close to the same weight as my carrot stix black. you cant go wrong with this rod.

From: Unknown: USA 3/2/14

Comments: I got the 7'3 H and the 6'10 M, I was able to fish with both of them this weekend. The rods are great looking rods, the pictures don't do them justice. Both of my rods came in good condition, I didn't notice any guides being out of line or warped blanks. They are light and very sensitive. Not a  fan of the eyes they decided to use however that's not a huge deal to me they seem to get the job done, we'll see how they hold up in the long run. I used braid on the 7'3 H and didn't notice any added noise while using the braid. This is my first experience with Duckett rods and they are under powered in my opinion, the H is more like a MH and the M has a lot of tip to it. They also seem to have a lot of handle to them, don't know if this is the same in the Micro Magic and White Ice series. Both rod fished great I used a jig on the 7'3 H and a shaky head and drop shot on the 6'10 M. I've used a bunch of the $100 range rods and would rank this rod right at the top for sensitivity however due to the handle lengths and guides they used I prefer the Omen 13 to these but you can't go wrong with either one.

From: Jim: DE 2/25/14

Comments: I have always heard such great things about Duckett rods, and Iv'e always wanted to try the micro magic but for me it was a little on the pricey side so when the ghost came out I was really intrigued and I took the gamble and ordered a 7'3 Heavy for jigs. I just received the rod today and when I pulled out of the tube i was amazed by the looks of this rod(picture doesn't do it justice) and the feel. The rod was very cleanly built but at the same time the first guide was off from the rest, and the reel seat was off as well and pretty badly. I was super disappointed. It is decently light and accurately weighted, with a tip on the softer side and I hope I just got a dud. If Duckett sends me a new one with no issues I will post an update after a test on the water. 

From: Cole: NY

Comments: Got a 7'6 Xheavy and thought it was alittle to soft until I boat flipped A 6 pounder! Nice guides very good quality wish they would have come out earlier.

From: Dane: FL

Comments: I bought the 7'3" md hvy for a jig rod, and the rod seems pretty solid for a hundred bucks. The tip is just a little too soft for me to use as a jig rod, but I think it will be a mighty fine spook/trap rod! The fit and finish is good on mine. I didn't have any quality issues or goof ups, and I actually like the eva grips on it.

From: Blake: Chatsworth, GA

Comments: love the duckett ghost, i picked up the 7'6 extra heavy for flipping and its great, really light and sensetive and yet still has the back-bone too pull fish from cover.  

From: Tyler: Windermere, FL

Comments: Ordered 10 of these and all of them where warped and guides didn't line up straight, one of the rods was even broke, unless I got a bad batch duckett has gone backwards the white ice and micro magic

From: Too Much: SC

Comments: This rod is just what I was waiting for. A budget minded cranking rod. I wanted to purchase some of the cranking  micro magic rods but I waited on these. Man the are as close to the original action of the Micro Magic series. I will be buying more. Thanks for a great rod with great action.

From: Erick: Chattanooga, TN
