Trying to find out real difference between the BA660XH/RT East Coast model and the equivalent Black Steel model. Both say graphite composite. What's the diff? Help ASAP, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance to all.

Looks the the BA660XH/RT is a glass rod, not a composite rod. I don't see its blank under blanks either.

You could always call Seeker and ask Randy Penny what the difference is in terms of the blank.

This is per Randy
theres a mistake there somewhere as all of the BA and BTS series rods are all fiberglass no graphite while the black steel are a much stronger glass/graphite composite.....sounds like someone got there wires crossed. Thanx Randy

Seeker East Coast Series
Graphite Composite Series Rods
I think this is what confused me. I read this at the top of page for Seeker East Coast Series Rods on Charkbait and thought that meant the whole East Coast Series was Graphite Composite. I just bought a Seeker BA660XH/RT off of ebay, so this is a little disappointing. Still, I think I will enjoy it. I have bought several reels from Charkbait and know they are first class. However, I think Mark might want to change that header. Thanks to all for your assistance.

I see what you mean. It says Graphite Composite at the top of the page. However, it says eglass/boron at the top of the chart listing the rods.

You can have three rods, one graphite, one graphite composite, one glass all with the same action. They won't weigh the same! Black Steels have glass tips with the graphite in the lower section so they feel like glass when casting but are lighter with more power in the lower section.

Here is another message off the old charkboard that indicates the same:

BA 660XH-6' RS/RT = East Coast Series... Line rating = 40 (60)100 ... Graphite composite with Roller Stripper & Roller Tip.

A 660XH-6' RS/RT = American II series...Line rating = 40 (60) 100 ...E glass with Roller Stripper & Roller Tip.


SC 660XH-6' RS/RT = West Coast Classic Series... Line rating = 40 (50) 100... E glass with Roller Stripper guide and Roller Tip... higher quality components than American II series
