CharkBait Rods

We are very pleased to introduce you to some unique CharkBait exclusive rods which represent the best in the business. We offer high quality travel rods and some wonderful Custom Built Rods. All rods featured on this page represent our philosophy of how a rod should be built. Noting both borrowed wisdom of things that work, and specific gaps in what's presently offered by major manufacturers we provide what we consider rods well worth owning. Our first group of Custom Rods feature blanks made by United Composite (formerly known as Graphite USA) and are built and designed in the USA. We have added some other specialty rods, featuring blanks by Seeker and Calstar. These rods have achieved a cult like status, similar to the UC's, for folks targeting Wahoo (Calstar 875) and cow size tuna (Seeker 2x4 and Calstar 770H, XH, XXH, and XXXH). 

CUSTOM RODS

Our Custom Rods are being built by someone well known on the West Coast, and beyond.  The reason for my reluctance to custom rods in the past was pretty simply, finding a reliable, high quality builder was difficult. There are many who can build a rod, but few who can build them correctly in my estimation, few that can build them to a professional level beyond the hobbyist level (and I'll direct that towards tackle shops who dabble in rod building and the larger outfits that build to a least common denominator). To be done right requires more than labor time, it requires knowledge of the rod, it's action, components,  the proper spacing of guides, the proper materials and skill... The gentleman building our rods is one such a knowledgeable individual of high integrity. I'd suggest, he's one of the best in the business.

 


UNITED COMPOSITE

Several years ago we offered GUSA custom built rods, made by the factory. They were wonderful sticks, and folks lucky enough to own one will attest to their excellent fishing characteristics: strong, light, narrow diameter which just seems to feel right in the hands and superb actions for a wide variety of applications. When the old firm began having problems we had to stop doing business with them. The old owner took a great product and ran it into the ground through poor business practices and even worse follow through in production. We missed them. Our clients did too. So, we were very much excited when John Baker told me that through his association with the Australian distributor for his reels, they'd be bringing the old GUSA's back to life and build them as they should be built. We committed on the spot to support their efforts, both in terms of blanks and hopefully with finished rods too. Things have come together!

The Custom built rods featured below represent our philosophy with respect to building a rod off a blank like the United Composites. We are using state of the art components, excellent wraps, perfectly spaced guides and have shaved no corners in trying to produce the finest rod we can possibly build. You'll note that where appropriate the rods have aluminum ALPS reel seats, Spectra safe guides, gimbals... They're built the way I'd like my rods built, by someone who arguably knows more about rod building than anyone else on the West Coast. 

 


Guides are all triple wrapped, with attention to detail. All Grips are hand sanded. Each rod represents many, many hours of labor in it's completion.

All rods feature a gimbal where approriate in terms of test application.

Challenger Platinum (CP) series rods utilize Dual Helix Graphite technology and transition to Fiberglass composite through the tip section. (Rods in this series were only available in Australia in the past, now we've got 'em,  too! For the heavier action rods, this design provides greater strength, lift, and forgiveness.)

We are in the process of adding to our offerings of these rods, covering more line classes. So, if you don't see exactly what you'd like, please check back or send me an email. We can also custom build any of the United Composite blanks, Calstar and Seeker, too.

We will produce other models by custom order, and add to this offering of finished rods as time progresses. Wait time for custom produced UC rods can be as long as 8 weeks should we run out of a particular model, though we do maintain a good inventory of completed rods in stock! You may also notice that our line test suggestions are a bit narrower than the manufacturer, reflecting what we believe to be more accurate best use of the rods.

Seeker and Calstar Custom Sticks

In the world of long range fishing Seeker established a rather unique new tool for folks targeting tuna, larger grade cow size tuna, their 2 x 4. The concept behind this rod was to build a rod capable of casting a bait further to lure a fish that might be out of range using more traditional means. The rod had a relatively light tip, but followed that up with serious strength in the butt section. Calstar echoed that design, and expanded upon it very successfully with a lighter range of offerings and lighter weight.

For our custom versions of these new factory rods, we also had a concept to fulfill. The cow rods ultimately wind up on the rail of the big long range boats. That's part of their design. But, the Seeker and Calstar do not build them with that in mind. Our cow rods feature a rail pad, so you won't beat up your rod when you try to leverage a big tuna at the rail. Further, we felt we could build the Seeker with a better guide set, and add a roller tip. The Fuji guides we use feature a rolled lip, securing the spectra safe insert, verses a stamped guide with glued on spectra insert. Ours is arguably better. The roller tip we use is a Winthrup, a big meaty tip top with enough room to fit a pencil through the thing. So, there's no issue with line and knot diameter and better dissipation of heat and less friction. We make excellent use of some great blanks with our custom designed rods, built right and better than the original. We also make the Rail Rods with AFTCO ring/roller tiptops. These are a bit lighter in weight than the larger Winthrups, have plenty of clearance for casting, and represent another option on the custom rods that go beyond the factory's offering.

Another rod in this series we're quite proud to have in the line is Calstar's 875 wahoo specialty rod. Again, it's better built, though Calstar does indeed build a great rod, we found a few things to improve upon the design and of course ours are prettier and arguably better built!

All are triple wrapped with Spectra safe guides using Rainshadow composite blanks. There are four rods in the series. a 196, 270, 870 and 670 for use with lines of 12# through 50# applications. We initially had these rods made to match our Newell Blue and Pink reels, but folks have requested the rods for use with other reels as well. So, we're offering them as an independent item, too.

CharkStraps & CharkWraps

Two new items from us, not necessarily the most creative or revolutionary products we've ever come up with, but nonetheless they are useful and they are a bit different than what's available from others.

Our RodWraps are an upgrade from the StickJackets we've carried for several years. We've made ours a bit larger in diameter so that they will accommodate larger saltwater guides, even larger spinning guides. The StickJackets were really made for freshwater use, sized accordingly but we used their spinning models for our application. Now we've got 'em made our way. We've reinforced the top with a leatherette end piece and metal grommet which can be used to hang rods, and we've increased the diameter to allow your rods, even those using larger AFTCO wind-on roller guides or larger size spinning guides to fit. The Wraps are about 5 feet in length, will extend down the rod into the handle material of most rods. They are not made to cover the entire rod, only that portion it's designed to protect - the blank, the finish, the guides.

These wraps are all that I've been using now for the past few years. I like the fact that I can use them for storage protection, travel protection as well as leave 'em on my rods on the boat. They are breathable and they don't absorb moisture. So, they help me protect my rods when they're bundled up once the fishing is over. On most long range trips out of San Diego, you move your rods onto the boat and off the boat all bundled up. They may stay that way overnight on the boat as well. For a cloth sock, that's no good. So, you can write off any protection of the rod. With these things you do get that protection when you need it most. I even leave them on my rods when I get home. I'll spray off the rod wraps while still on the rod, loosening any accumulated saltwater in the process. Then I'll take off the wraps, clean the rods more thoroughly and allow them to dry. Use of a cleaner like Penn's Rod and Reel cleaner for that, and you've got things in great shape for your next trip and your gear will stay in new condition. The Wraps are five feet in length.

The other product we have for rod organization are our CharkStraps. These are great for bundling your rods together for transport or storage. You can secure up to a half dozen rods with these things. Nice thing about ours verses some others, they are made from a softer foam/rubber material so they'll never scratch up your rods. Unlike some similar products I've seen, we made it a point to include three different sizes (which makes sense since you'll use all three at different positions on your bundled rods from the tip to near the reel seat). So, you get three straps, all with Velcro through their length to handle most any size bundle of rods you'll be totting, from 2 to 6 or more rods.

CharkBait Rod Socks

Our Chark-Sleeves are a bit different than the one's above. They are available in three sizes. The base of the sleeve folds up onto the butt section of the rod and then can be tied off. So, one size can fit shorter rods with no problem. They are made of 89% polyester and 11% lycra (like OJ's gloves if you remember...). The material is versatile, durable and quick drying. It's super stretchy, and the micro polyester fabric wicks away moisture - like those $60 golf shirts. Nice product, nice price! These will stretch up to one foot longer in length. So, a 5' will indeed fit a 6' rod, the 7 will stretch to a tight 8.

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

As a means to reduce spam, we change the above incoming email addresses regularly. 
Please don't bother adding them to your address book.  
We do apologize for any inconvenience this policy creates. But, it's the only way we've found to post an email address on-line and not receive so many solicitations from some family member of a deceased "Nigerian" leader trying to move great sums of $ out of the country...
