What would you use this rod for if you had one
(party boats) light iron? Plastic? Big Baits?
I have a Daiwa Black Gold 30 for it.
Hi Jeff, I haven't fished that rod, but the match you suggest makes good sense. I'd be thinking 20#, and tossing lighter jigs like the smaller 544's and plastics.
Thanks Mark, I just received this rod from you last evening. I already love it and I have several rods 15 - 30 pound test. A golf pro and top fisherman uses a 900XL cut to 8 1/2 feet for plastics. Leon from Calstar always says no no no too light at the tip, so I ordered this from you. It should throw 1 to 1 1/2oz plastic perfectly! I have to fish the Eastern Sierras this week and then it's time to hurt some seabass with that stick! Great service from Charkbait and thank you! Jeff

I have the 800L its my favorite 20# rod.
I use it for plastics up to 3/4 oz and 4in and 5in swimbaits. I have a trigger reel seat on mine. I use a revo inshore with 30lb braid 20# leader.
also great for flyline small bait chovie etc
school size albies and smaller yellows great for halibut too.
for that I use a Saltist 20 spooled with 20# mono.
have fun with it
In looking at the factory Calstar 850L I noticed extra long cork tape wrapped.
Leon most likely designed it so I can cut it down 6 inches if I don't like the extra length.
Most of my rods are 8' now. Seeker 6480 is a very nice 25 - 30# stick...
The extra cork is a nice touch although the rest of my rods are custom. This is a very nice factory wrap...
