Melton Tackle's GBF 130U is the ultimate stand-up rod for those anglers looking to punish themselves on the largest Tuna's that swim the ocean. This rod was the result of extensive testing and design mods from the team at Melton Tackle and Seeker USA...Using highly modified, custom blanks, Melton Tackle was able to design a stand-up rod that would allow an angler to comfortably and safely apply drag pressures in excess of 50lbs.+ for extended periods of time. This is the kind of pressure needed to land Tuna that weigh in excess of 1000lbs!

One of the unique features of this rod is it's length...Usually with longer rods with a faster taper, they put too much pressure on the angler and start to become an advantage for the fish. Melton Tackle was able to modify the blank used in this rod to achieve a slower taper and a solid lock-up mid section creating a rod that not only is easy on the angler, it's hell on the fish!

These Melton rods paired up with these powerhouse reels you're armed with the ultimate stand-up combos!
