    only one rod for sale now....

    (200$) 7' CalstarXH Blank, rod was custom made for Hook-Up shop Orleans with specs from Terry Nugent

    Terry Nugent Riptide Edition "Big Gun" tuna rod based on Calstar Grayfighter 700XH 7' blank. Fuji SIC guides, 50mm Stripper guide, Aftco Big Game Reel Seat, Shaped AR-15 Foregrip, Aluminum Gimble, HD wrapping, Aftcoat. The rod will handle over 40# of drag without any issue-gotta have a harness for that imo.The metal reel seat allows for use of a rod strap and harness without fear of stressing the blank in an very small area or breaking a graphite seat. Was a custom rod for The Hook-up shop in Orleans.

    I've landed a 72" tuna on this, many in 60" range, and broke off a couple monster giants >72", leader chafe not rod/reel issue. Was a 400$+ rod new. Had the top guide replaced at Goose Hummock. Not fished since then. otherwise perfect. serious stick. I have two of these, keeping one for now :).
