Just picked up a clean, sweet old school honey Calstar 530. Label is still intact but just wondering when Calstar started putting the white flag in the butt? Mine doesn't have it. Can anybody possibly date the era of this blank? Thanks

Older Calstars that i have don't have the white strip.Even the Black glass blanks.The ones i have are from the 90's.

    I need a ride.
    That looks like a 90s calstar. I asked T at fishermans tackle a while back about a tan 6480 she had in stock without a white stripe. She said it was sometime in the 90s, but no exact year. The label was like that as well.

    Lol. Now I'm looking for another person selling a calstar 530 or a 90j and I just came across this. At least you found one! I'm back to looking.

    Same honey 530s as what you pictured? New old stock, huh? That's awesome. I'm in if they have more. How much are they getting for them?

    Yeah, I found this one a few weeks ago. I wanted the other one because I'm kind of enjoying the stripping down and refinishing process..and then having my wrapper do his thing.
