State of the Art Fishing Rods and Blanks
for the Ultimate Quality, Performance and Durability

Calstar rods have taken more big tuna over 200 pounds than all other manufacturer's products combined...by a 3 to 1 margin (San Diego Sportfishing Council from 1998-2000).  They have earned respect from the most demanding of anglers, the guys hitting the long range 10-20 day trips.  Calstar blanks are the top choice among custom rod builders, because their actions are right-on-the-money, and the quality and consistency is excellent.  Calstar Fishing Rods are uncompromising in terms of quality. That comes at a price.  But, for many anglers the price is worth the end result.  The end result is excellence, simply put. 

Calstar's founder Leon Todd has dedicated his life to building quality fiberglass and composite fishing rods and blanks. From his early years at Roddy Rods, to his days of designing rod blanks for California Tackle (Sabre) and now as owner of Calstar, Leon's primary market has been the discriminating saltwater angler. When anglers worldwide need the best, they come to Calstar. Leon listens to his angling customers and makes changes and adds new models to his line to continuously improve and provide the customer with the product that meets their needs. Leon credits the many outstanding professionals as well as thousands of fine anglers in the Southern California area for their input and support.

CharkBait is proud to offer our clients Calstar products, some of the finest fishing rods money can buy.  We're stocking both their Grafighter series and the West Coast Series of factory built rods. As of the summer of 2009 we also expanded, as did Calstar, with the introduction of the GG series of rods. These feature graphite and 'glass construction, a less expensive guide set than the Grafighters, but with similar benefits of blank construction. The GG series is a little more affordable, and offer lighter weights than the West Coast series of rods. We stock some blanks, and of course have access to all blanks produced by this firm.

If you would like to get a bit of background on the various rod series made by Calstar we have posted a YouTube video that tries to go over the product line.


 
Video: Calstar Rods

calstarGF001.jpg (85226 bytes)The Grafighters are the new standard in fishing.  They're made from both fiberglass and graphite, throughout their length.  The result is a lighter stick, quicker responding, very good durability, and they effectively help you fight a fish by virtue of their action.  These rods are triple wrapped, black blank with seafoam color wrap.  The rods feature Fuji BNLG/BNLGH conventional guides or AFTCO rollers.  

We're now including shipping on all Calstar fishing rods, makes life a little simpler. If you're local to our shop and don't require shipping, the price may be a bit less.  Please do not call the shop for the in-store price, we're not allowed to quote prices by phone.  You'll just have to drop over and check things out.  Rest assured, CharkBait's prices are the lowest possible.  We guarantee it.

The West Coast Series is the gear that made Calstar's reputation.  Great actions, excellent durability, strength, and quality components throughout the line.  Of course all Calstar fishing rods carry a Lifetime Guarantee and are "Made in the USA".  If you're looking for a rod you'll own and fish for a lot of years, you don't mind a moderate expense but aren't looking to sacrifice your daughter's education funds, the West Coast Series is your best choice.  You'll love the rod and appreciate it's many strengths, you'll also come to the realization that you've grabbed a real value once you fish the rod.

The casting and spinning rods feature stainless steel guides. The all roller rods use AFTCO components, while the RS/RT rods use the AFTCO stripper and tip-top with Stainless rings for the other guies. Fuji seats are used up to the all roller rods which feature AFTCO seats.  

The West Coast series rods are available in honey or black with a seafoam green wrap.  The black versions are a little more expensive than Calstar's  traditional honey blanks.  The all roller trolling rods are $30 more expensive given their use of AFTCO black components.

CharkStraps & CharkWraps

Two new items from us, not necessarily the most creative or revolutionary products we've ever come up with, but nonetheless they are useful and they are a bit different than what's available from others.

Our RodWraps are an upgrade from the StickJackets we've carried for several years. We've made ours a bit larger in diameter so that they will accommodate larger saltwater guides, even larger spinning guides. The StickJackets were really made for freshwater use, sized accordingly but we used their spinning models for our application. Now we've got 'em made our way. We've reinforced the top with a leatherette end piece and metal grommet which can be used to hang rods, and we've increased the diameter to allow your rods, even those using larger AFTCO wind-on roller guides or larger size spinning guides to fit. The Wraps are about 5 feet in length, will extend down the rod into the handle material of most rods. They are not made to cover the entire rod, only that portion it's designed to protect - the blank, the finish, the guides.

These wraps are all that I've been using now for the past few years. I like the fact that I can use them for storage protection, travel protection as well as leave 'em on my rods on the boat. They are breathable and they don't absorb moisture. So, they help me protect my rods when they're bundled up once the fishing is over. On most long range trips out of San Diego, you move your rods onto the boat and off the boat all bundled up. They may stay that way overnight on the boat as well. For a cloth sock, that's no good. So, you can write off any protection of the rod under these conditions, and rods do get grouped, compressed, bounced around while stored on the upper deck and in handling at the end of a trip. So, when it's time to "take down your gear" on a long range trip for bundling and storage on the top deck during travel and boat cleaning, I'll put my rods in the Jacket individually and in a pinch two in the same sleeve. That's helped me protect my rods, their guides, and keep things organized and together at the end of the trip. With these things you do get that protection when you need it most. I even leave them on my rods when I get home and put my fishing rods away for storage. I'll spray off the rod jackets while still on the rod, loosening any accumulated saltwater in the process. Then I'll take off the wraps, clean the rods more thoroughly and allow them to dry. Use of a cleaner like Penn's Rod and Reel cleaner for that, and you've got things in great shape for your next trip and your gear will stay in new condition. The Wraps are five feet in length.

The other product we have for rod organization are our CharkStraps. These are great for bundling your rods together for transport or storage. You can secure up to a half dozen rods with these things. Nice thing about ours verses some others, they are made from a softer foam/rubber material so they'll never scratch up your rods. Unlike some similar products I've seen, we made it a point to include three different sizes (which makes sense since you'll use all three at different positions on your bundled rods from the tip to near the reel seat). So, you get three straps, all with Velcro through their length to handle most any size bundle of rods you'll be totting, from 2 to 6 or more rods.

CharkBait Rod Socks

Our Chark-Sleeves are a bit different than the one's above. They are available in three sizes. The base of the sleeve folds up onto the butt section of the rod and then can be tied off. So, one size can fit shorter rods with no problem. They are made of 89% polyester and 11% lycra (like OJ's gloves if you remember...). The material is versatile, durable and quick drying. It's super stretchy, and the micro polyester fabric wicks away moisture - like those $60 golf shirts. Nice product, nice price! These will stretch up to one foot longer in length. So, a 5' will indeed fit a 6' rod, the 7 will stretch to a tight 8.

Trigger Clamp from SEI
For Deckhand Rods

Here's an update of an old favorite, combined with another idea, and together they may be just what you've been looking for. Mounting a reel on a deckhand rod, being able to position the reel anywhere you'd like is a great thing for distance casting. The downside is that a fairly narrow reel clamp may allow for some twisting on the rod or some damaging pressure on the cork-tape. The Cork Puppy solved that problem, similarly to Accurate's after market long brace, providing a more secure mounting on your favorite deckhand rod. The new Trigger Clamp being introduced this week takes that to another level with the addition of a trigger which provides even more control during a cast or when you're waiting on a bite. Now, I'll say the product is not perfect, and it may require some fiddling on your part to make it a perfect match to your rod. For some reels, such as the smaller size Accurate reels, it just won't work since there's not enough clearance from the gear case. For some others you may need shorter or longer bolts, that's something to be expected given differences in rod diameter. You may need to use a washer (stainless steel of course) to deal with bolt length or a narrow nut for the reel's bolts. But, for most reels it's a pretty easy fit. That's a downside of making a "universal" product that will work with the majority of reels straight out of the box using their own hardware. With a bit of fiddling this product will work with the vast majority of reels on the market, and for many it will work straight out of the box. Those are my caveats to buyers, and on the positive side we finally have a trigger grip for deckhand rods, and a more secure method of mounting reels on deckhand rods. The positives far outweigh any fiddling which MAY be required to ensure a perfect fit.

There are no accessories packaged with the Trigger Clamp, what you see is what you get. Unlike the old Cork Puppy, there's only one size to the new Trigger. It is a 29mm size, so again it's going to fit the vast majority of deckhand rods with the exception of the really fat ones like an Ulua. It's priced right, at $18, a bit under it's only (and typically out of stock)  alternative, and it's got a TRIGGER! So, a bit of fiddling has a payoff given what it offers folks looking for both security and comfort.

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)
