    Hey guys,

    Any suggestions who stocks Calstar Grafighter blanks (not finished rods) here in Southern CA ? Specifically an 800XH

    Jeff you might try Monte or Micah at M&M rods in Point Loma. They’ve had or been able to get them for me when they’re scarce locally

    You might try Bob Sands. If you can order online, Mudhole ships $150 or more for free, no sales tax. You should take a look at the Rainshadow line, RX6/E-Glass series. They’re very innovative, just added a few 7’6” blanks at the Long Beach Fred Hall Show.

    HI JEFF,

    Which ones are you looking for... We have a great inventory of Calstar and United Composite blanks at Bob Sands Tackle..And of course we are a huge distributor for both companies in factory rods.. We can also order whatever you need from the factory if we do not have it in stock..

    Got my Rainshadow blanks at the show, from Island Tackle. Since they also carry Calstar, good chance to do a comparison. Like the 800XH, rated 40-80, check out Rainshadow RCJB96XH.

    Probably just fish 40 n see how it does. It’s pretty parabolic. Thought about trying to sell it, but it’s that 90, so probably keep/horde it .. And Thank You!! I’m new at building, so thanks for the kind words!!
