80lb Calstar Marlin Rod
« on: January 16, 2014, 01:06:10 PM »
It really has been a while since I did a proper offshore rod.
I actually did this rod last year for a show and never posted any photos of it.
So here are some more details


Quick Specs:
Calstar 80lb Blank
Aftco Roller Guides & tip
Aftco Removable Curved Butt
Hypalon Grip
Black and Metallic Lime Green green under wraps with black over wraps and lime green metallic tags/trims.


I tried keeping it plain and simple. Apologies if you see fingerprints or dust on the blank.























Thank you for looking.
