United Composites-USA represents a line of quality blanks the like of which you've never felt or seen...well, not quite true. If you remember Graphite USA's dual helix design rods earlier this decade, you'll no doubt see some resemblance in design of these new blanks. There are some important differences, too. The old Graphite USA (GUSA) blanks were excellent, which is why we sold them previously and sold the built rods here as well. But, they began a decline as a result of poor management, and went out of business. Further, the old owner was in such a financial scramble at the end that he sold off expensive rod building equipment as "scrap" for pennies on the dollar. Worse yet, since he didn't have the necessary equipment in working order, the blanks built in recent years were not up to par and suffered needless breakage. Built right, the Dual Helix rods are unbreakable.  Graphite USA's demise was the right thing to happen, no government bailout required... The owner ran the firm into the ground. GUSA's demise opened the door for the sale of the company to folks who had a commitment to build 'em correctly.

Pictured: Peter and Andrew Williams from Australia. Peter's the guy who brought GUSA back to life, believed in the company and believed that the production should stay in America rather then move overseas. It was Peter who brought those excellent designs and production methods back to market. Without the Williams family, there would be no United Composites today. Peter was the Australian distributor of GUSA who had the benefit of the Challenger Premium series of blanks - which were not available in the USA - and which was essentially created by the new owner, Peter Williams (pictured at the top of this page along with his son Andrew who was their production manager). The CP series became the blank/rod of choice for the more discriminating Australian fisherman. The new facility is located here in California.

Peter is also the Australian distributor of Calstar and with a recent merger also handled another 'nameless' West Coast rod firm - however that one was dropped given the change in ownership, lack of production know how and capability. Recognizing the impossibility of running a firm from 10,000 miles distance, in the spring of 2014 Peter sold UC to Randy Penney - former production manager of Seeker Fishing Rod (about 20 years time there - pictured left). Finally we have a local owner/operator running the factory full time! Peter is finally getting what he wanted all along, UC blanks for the Aussie market built with the quality he was committed to providing his clients. In August 2014 Randy's production of rod blanks exceeded the best month Peter ever achieved (note, UC blanks do take more time to produce properly than your standard rods from Calstar or Seeker. Time taken is greater, material costs are far higher). Randy's team of experienced rod makers are  producing blanks of the highest quality in sufficient numbers to meet international demand - with a capacity to grow.

Dual Helix Facts: Dual Helix ply construction produces a rod blank that has outstanding resistance to both crushing and twisting. This unique construction technique, adapted from the experience of aerospace activities, is superior to the conventional rod blank "roll-wrap" manufacturing process adopted years ago from the textile industry. Two advantages are readily apparent; firstly the Dual Helix structure keeps the rod round when heavily loaded during casting or fighting a hooked fish, the Dual Helix construction adds extraordinary crush and nick resistance. The second major advantage is the outstanding resistance to twist imparted to the blank through the Dual Helix Design.

New Releases: Originally designed exclusively for Australia, the Challenger series is now finally being released and available for the USA market. The Challenger range of blanks was originally designed in 2004 specifically for the harsh and rough fishing conditions of Australia, tackling some of the word's toughest species of fish. Beyond doubt these ranges of blanks have proved themselves well beyond expectation and have become the benchmark for saltwater blanks "down under."


With the opening of the new UC factory in Huntington Beach, I made a little trip to their plant see what they've accomplished. Very interesting time, and wonderful to see all the progress they've made since moving here to HB. I'd been by their old place in Calimesa, that was a 1/2 step towards what Peter wanted to accomplish. By moving their factory they are closer to the "action" in terms of rod building and saltwater fishing. Now within about 20 miles we have UC, Calstar and Seeker all producing the best fishing rods in the world.

We can go through a bit of the rod building process via video and still images below. To see a brief video tour, visit our YouTube Channel: CharkBaitUSA.

The first step is selecting the appropriate material, then cutting the "flags." Then the correct mandrel is pulled for forming the "matt."
The "flag" is formed to the mandrel under high pressure, then enclosed in cellophane, and checked for spec again.
UC's oven is huge, capable of "baking" 10' blanks, in volume. It's one of the largest rod ovens in the country.
Once the blank as been "baked" it's then sanded and painted. All the blanks have six or more points of quality control. Of course the final step is pulling on the rod by real live humans! The blank pictured left is one of the CP (Challenger Platinum) series models.

United Composite is up and running, they are producing rods full speed.
The long wait is over!


There are several lines of blanks made by United, but two of them fit into our style of saltwater fishing very well:

United DHX & GUSA DHX Saltwater Series - These are the same/better as the familiar GUSA rods and are constructed using the patented Dual Helix graphite designs. 100% multi modulus graphite incorporating Dual Helix ply construction, provides unparalleled strength, lightness of weight, and a thinner diameter of the finished rod.

Challenger Platinum & Xtreme Series - This was a line that was not sold here in the USA but became the best known and the most popular rods in Australia. They are a composite design using E-glass and multi modulus Graphite, both mat materials incorporated for strength, durability, light weight and resilience under high stresses. You'll find that these are exceptionally strong rods, exceptionally nice to fish also. Composite Dual Helix ply construction combining woven carbon fiber and E-glass.

Both series above carry a 2 year limited guarantee from date of purchase, limited to the original purchaser/owner. Rod blank orders are non-refundable, exchange privilege exists only within a seven day period from the date of receipt of goods.

Taking things a bit further, UC indeed does make a wide range of blanks probably something like 400 + in their design lineup at present. These cover many applications. One series that has proven very popular in the Australian market and also gained a strong USA base is their Pioneer SHX Series of single helix graphite spinning and casting blanks. We've added this series to our available options for our clients for 2010. While we are a saltwater "house" the Pioneer Series is known as a freshwater blank with some inshore and bay saltwater application. So, it does fit into our game just as do the Seeker React and Inshore series of rods. The Pioneer SHX Series carries a 1 year manufacturers limited guarantee.


FINISHED RODS

We've received most of our new Custom built United Composite RODS! Finally, they are here, not in great depth, but we've had their most popular blanks turned into some of the most beautiful and functional rods you'll ever come across. The new rods are stunning, and they feel great in the hands - as expected. While we will try to maintain a bit of an inventory of these rods, we also expect that there will be times when the rods will be out of stock due to demand. Like any custom built piece of gear, expect a wait while they are in the process of manufacture. Please visit the CharkBait Custom Rod page for more information regarding the finished rods.


BLANKS
 

Shipping runs $20 for rods, up to 8 feet in length within continental USA.

Most orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Rods, given their extra length, will have an added cost of $20 - this is a change for 2016 due to increased shipping charges from FedEx and UPS, packaging costs also increased this year for longer boxes. 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.)

One caveat for buyers, rod blanks are non-refundable. Blanks are subject to a 20% restocking charge by the manufacturer. Know what you're looking for BEFORE you make your purchase, or contact staff at our shop prior to ordering if you have any question regarding application for a particular blank.  Shipping blanks to Hawai'i and Alaska may carry higher charges than  our standard domestic USA rates given carrier fees and limitations on box sizes. In the event of any shipping rate beyond our stated terms above we will contact you for your approval.

Also, UC produces many, many different models and series of rod blanks. What we list are the most popular models, but not all are listed. Additionally, the rod craftsmen at UC are always working on new models (like their longer Viper which is listed below) so there can be additional models that what we have listed. For more information please call or email Mark at our HB shop for more information.

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. With these things you do get that protection when you need it most. I even leave them on my rods when I get home. I'll spray off the rod wraps 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 5 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.

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.)
