West Coast Style Melton Calstar Graphiter Long Range Big Game Rods (Melton Graphiter Composite Rods Refined for 2008). Featuring state-of-the-art Calstar blank construction, Graphiter's are a blend of fiberglass for durability and graphite for strength. These rods are very lightweight, yet have amazing recoil and lifting power. Melton Tackle has taken these custom blanks and put together a line-up of rods that are built on a one by one custom basis. With refined components and several new models added to the series. Check out the 8 foot CBG 800XL, probably the finest light bait stick ever! Also, the CBG GX-8CT has cork grips and a Fuji trigger style seat for bait casting reels. Live Bait, Jig, and Bait are made with Fuji Hardloy guides, Fuji reel seats and hypalon grips. All roller models have black/silver AFTCO guides and black/gold aluminum reel seat gimbals. The jig sticks are perfect for casting to those finicky fish cruising the "outside", picking off your chum. Whether you need boat rods or are going long-range, these rods will put you on top of your game!
