Melton Tackle Charter Series Rods are the perfect rod for the angler looking for the ideal balance of value and performance in a chair/trolling rod. Capable of handling 60-130lb. test depending on the model, these rods offer excellent quality and top of the range components. Aftco Wind-on Guides and unibutts are standard along with x-shrink over grips for a sure hold even in the wettest conditions. Graphite/Glass Composite construction blanks that are lighter than conventional glass but feature an incredible backbone, these rods give you maximum lifting power to control and move large fish, keeping constant pressure on your fish, so they never rest and wear down faster. You will pay hundreds more for a comparable built factory rod and still not have all the performance these rods offer. These rods would make an ideal travel set for fisherman going worldwide in their pursuit of tuna and billfish. Durable and functional for years of service. Available in both stand-up and chair models.
