Did you get with Calstar's website and see what dealers are in your area? 6 on the rack is a lot to expect for most dealers, they would have to order probably. If they don't have them, the rumor I've heard is six weeks wait, or longer.

They are in the San Diego area, the restrictions were pretty strong there and other west coast states. Lamiglas and others have also been affected if you built your blanks in the US. US supply chains were also a problem, many couldn't get the US supplies to build blanks for some time.

Try contacting C&M Custom Tackle. They are in Southern California near Los Angeles, I think. Their website says that Calstar is running 4 to 6 weeks behind, minimum, so call first.
