A friend of mine purchased a pair of the subject rods in a 7'9" length medium action from the Sportsman's Warehouse in Redding, CA about 1.5 - 2 years ago. The rods are beautiful and are great for pulling plugs and backbouncing for salmon. Since then I have yet to see these rods for sale anywhere else. He said they were the only two on the rack at the time and has yet to see them anywhere else either. Were these rods developed as a prototype only and he just happened to get lucky? And does lamiglas plan on producing more of these in the future. (fyi I am not confusing these rods with the lami norwest specials). Any feedback would be appreciated.
