I needed a good match for my Stella 20K

So I enlisted Rod Maker "Don Savage" w/ Savage Rods

BLank: Calstar 700H

Reel Seat/ Butt: Aftco Blk Aluminum

Fuji Eyes, black with hardaloy inserts

We choose not to put a Rod ring, I will add the removable ring so if I do not like It and it gets in the way, it can be removed

EVA (10" below reel seat and 14" above)

silver underwrap and black overwrap

Here is some pics

Good looking rod. What make you choose the 700H blank? Curious mind want to know.

This being my first big game spinning rod, I asked a lot of questions.

Decided I neeeded a 7 footer but needed enough back bone, for the big boys.

Talked to the guys at FTU

PM a few guys on 2Coolfishing

and since I had another Calstar and was happy with its performance, I felt the Blank was a good fit.

I kind of used FTU's rod as an example of what I liked and what I didnt like.

If we can ever get my uncles friebds boat out of dry dock at Tempest (50' Bertrem) I would love to try it before my 2 scheduled trips on the Big - E
