 Post subject: rod comparison
PostPosted: Fri Dec 12, 2008 12:38 pm 
I only have calstar rods but was interested in knowing what others think are the major differences between a calstar heavy rod (like a grafite 6460XXH) and a comparible seeker rod (6463xxxH). I am looking for another rod to use for 130# line class with about 28# of drag for bait fishing. Thanks for the input! :D

I think your question might come down to personal preferences.

Have you pulled on both?

I know that static testing is not really like how the rod will feel while using it to capture fish, but I know that I had to try Calstar, Seeker and a small number of other blank manufacturer's wares. Once having done that, I chose Seeker blanks for all of my rods.

Uh ....... test 'em ....... your "mileage may vary" ...... :P

The only things that I can tell you for sure, only YOUR choice will be best for you.

The Seeker 6463 is a 6'3" rod, a little more "bouncy" than the 6460. I've got the 6463 with HD wind-ons and it's a Haas! You can ull stumps with it and it won't beat you up. Pull on both and see which one you like though, that's what counts.

Check out the 2X4 at Seekers booth at the FHS too. It has a XX tip and a XXXX butt. Good (well, better anyway) casting with the 2X tip and plenty of pulling power with the 4X butt.
