    Seem like Seekers are a little softer / Slower action .I've been using Calstar 6470 for years . Was looking for something a little softer.
    Whats your option on the Seeker 70M ?

    try a calstar 610 for a 30-50#or a 610h for 40-60#. both are very easy on the old back.

    I use the SS-CJB80-F(20-30) for me 25# bait stick. I cut 2" off the tip and it feels perfect to me for that line size...
    My SS-CJBF70-M(25-40) is my 'go to' 30# bait stick...

    I've fished Calstar for years and just purchased the SS 6470. The super seeker is much more expensive. I'm looking forward to seeing how it fishes.

    Do you guys think the SS CJBF 70M is comparable to Calstars 700M ?

    I think the seeker 70M feels just a bit lighter than the 700-m calstar...
