New Lamiglas Surf Rods Focus On Big Fish
Woodland, Wa: With seven new surf rods ready to launch in 2010, and six of them are 11-feet or longer in length, it’s apparent the big fish are back in East Coast surf fisheries. The new Lamiglas additions are found in their three premium surf rod line-ups: Super Surf, Ron Arra Pro Surf and Graphite Surf and Jetty. Details of each model introduction are outlined below.
SS 91 MLS
Advancing the technological benefits of fiber blending evident in all Super Surf rods, Lamiglas has introduced the new SS 91MLS for 2010. This nimble nine-foot one-piece spinning rod is balanced for precise casting within the calm waters of back bays and points. Rated for 3/8- to 1 1/2-ounce casting weight and 10- to 20-pound monofilament line and constructed specifically for superbraids. The agile SS 91 MLS is an extremely lightweight pleasurable rod for plugging, casting bucktails and soft baits, while retaining surprising power throughout the rod blank.
The medium-light SS 91 MLS is constructed with the full complement of Super Surf advantages including over- and under-wraps on all guides, Fuji reel seat and Fuji Alconite Concept guides.
SS 12 MHC
The new Super Surf SS 12 MHC embraces the superior strength of Super Surf fiber blending blank technology and advances it into the heavyweight category. Truly a platinum level offering in a chunking and trophy fish rod, the SS 12 MHC handles with great agility for a 12-footer, and packs supreme power for the largest fish and heavy surf conditions.
Constructed in two pieces, the SS 12 MHC is rated for 6- to 16-ounces of casting weight and 20- to 50- pound line. Like all Super Surf rods, the Fuji Alconite Concept guides are both under-wrapped and over-wrapped for strength and durability, especially with modern Spectra fiber fishing lines.
Ron Arra XCRA/XSRA 1322
Designed with guidance from five-time national distance casting champion, professional casting instructor and best-selling author Ron Arra, Lamiglas has introduced a new one-piece, eleven foot Ron Arra Pro Surf blank constructed in both casting and spinning versions. The eleven-foot, one-piece construction is unique in factory-constructed rods and fills a void for the serious surf angler.
Premium graphite construction provides the moderate-fast action and lightweight handling apparent in all Ron Arra Pro Surf Rods. Rated for 15- to 30-pound line and 1- to 5-ounce lure ratings, coupled with their 11-foot length and medium action accounts for exceptional versatility ranging from light bait applications to plugging for stripers, bluefish and weakfish.
Graphite Surf and Jetty
XS 111 MHC
Lamiglas’ new XS 111 MHC fills the void in a market lacking a factory built and warranted one-piece eleven-foot surf rod. Previous to this introduction, anglers wanting one-piece performance in rods of this length had to seek custom-built alternatives.
The XS 111 MHC, rated for 3- to 6-ounces of casting weight and 20- to 40-pound line, is a fast action rod avid surf anglers will find themselves relying on all season along. Highly versatile, the rod will multi-task for bucktails, darters and pencil poppers, and has the sensitivity for bait fishing eels. A powerful butt section backs the fast tip section, providing confidence-inspiring power against big fish and tough currents.
XS 12 MHC
Rated for 6- to 16-ounces casting weight and 20- to 50-pound line, the all new XS 12 MHC is powerful 12-footer for fishing heavy bait rigs and lures for large fish. With exceptional inherent power in the blank, it remains surprisingly light in the hand. As a long distance casting rod ideal for chunking, the XS 12 MHC will offer premium graphite performance anglers will appreciate every day on the water.
XS 15 MHC
Constructed primarily for the Ulua fisheries of the Hawaiian Islands, the XS 15 MHC is a beautiful performer. A full 15-feet in length and rated for 4- to 7-ounces of casting weight, the rod is rated for 20- to 40-pound line. Superior casting characteristics and exceptional retained power compliment one another within its length. Two-piece construction makes for easy travel and storage.
