7/24/19 - Bought a Calstar 800M - now for the reel,,,,, I'm looking for a dedicated stick to throw some iron. All my rods are Calstar with the exception of 1 Shikari. Mostly fish private boat, 1-2 party boat trips a year. 8'? DH or reel seat? Does it make a difference? Most likely buy a used rod when I find one in great condition. Looking for some advice/help/offers/info Thanks BD'rs Fish on!
