I posted a message on this forum a few days ago requesting some input on choosing a Lamiglas rod. I got some good information from rod squad members. I have decided to start basic and go with a CC 703 for the casting rod. What I would like to know if there is a place to buy this rod that offers a good price and GREAT service. When I looked online I notices prices for the 703 ranging from 65 to 112. The average was around 90.
As far as the spinning rod I have decided to go with a G Loomis rod. The main reason for that is that I found a dealer that would take my old GL3 rods plus a Fenwick and Shimano rod that I have in trade. This would give me enough in trade to buy an IMX rod and have enough left over to buy some line to re-spool my reels.
What I did discover is that the certified pro rod is essentially the same rod as the IMX and that it costs about $100 less. I would have preferred to buy two certified pro rods instead of the models that I am thinking of buying. The deciding factor was the trade up program that Loomis has. Does Lamiglas offer a similar trade program? It would be nice if they did.
