I was looking at getting a ET 108-9 and setting it up like this: Use a Fuji concept single foot Ti/sic 30mm stripper guide, then 20mm,10mm,8mm, Then add two 7mm concept fly ti/sic then finish out with four 6mm concept fly Ti/sic. I was planning on putting TWO reel seats on the rod. One fly seat as normal, then about 8 inches in front of that a spinning reel seat. Cork in between. Now the questions I had were these. Will that set up void the Lamiglas warrenty? What weight lures will it throw? I've tried my 8wt Thomas and Thomas Horizon with a spinning reel taped to the handle and I was amazed that it would load with just a 1/8 ounce roostertail. It tossed a 1/4 ounce lure a country mile despite the line slap from the pure fly guides I have on it. On my Lamiglas ET 108-9 I would mount a 4000 size Shimano. Line would vary from 20 braid all the way down to 4 mono. I think it would still be very good as a fly rod even with those guides. Trying to think outside the box here.
I'm a disabled guy in a wheelchair and fish from the bank/docks/ here in Kentucky for bass/panfish/catfish. A longer rod really comes in handy when your not able to move around much. Lets you cover much more territory. Puts you further out from the bank when fishing a creek bank. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! BillyR
