LAMIGLAS INTRODUCES 36 NEW WAYS TO "FISH WITH CONFIDENCE."
Woodland, WA: For every new lure and every new technique that emerges, where do anglers look first for the rods they need to excel in the new trend? Lamiglas. For more than 50 years, Lamiglas has proudly led the industry in the advanced design of technique-specific rods. Over 400 rods and 500 blanks now populate our offerings. No other rod manufacturer comes close to breadth and depth of the Lamiglas selection. For 2008, we've designed 36 new rods. We invite you to inspect, admire and cast them all.
Super Surf SeriesIt's a good time to be a surf angler. Conservation measures are returning larger, more numerous fish. Lines and lures have never been better. And Lamiglas' 2008 introduction of the Super Surf Series will capitalize on every cast, strike and fish.
Designed specifically for larger fish and braided super lines, the Super Surf series includes seven custom-quality spinning rods from 9- to 11-feet and represent the finest production surf rods ever made.
Tri-Flex Graphite OffshoreIn a word, Tri-Flex Graphite Offshore rods are... effortless. Their smooth yet unrelenting power makes quick work of the toughest fish, while their incredibly lightweight nature provides a comfort in the hand that's closer to a casting rod than a trolling rod.
For 2008, the Tri-Flex Graphite Offshore line-up has more than doubled with seven new model introductions. To the base models, the addition of the OBL 5610, at 5'6" and 100lb. line class rating brings Blue Marlin and super-sized tuna into the Tri-Flex Offshore stable. The "Power Oval" line up, featuring the Fuji Power Oval guide system which provides roller guide fluidity without any moving parts, has been expanded to include a the OBL 6080 at 6'0" and 80lb. class along with the OBL 7025 at 7'0" in a 25lb. class rod.
Completely new, and representing a quality and performance level matched to the highest standards are the OBL 6830 AR, OBL 6850 AR, and OBL 6880 AR, each 6'8" in 30-, 50- and 80-pound line class featuring AFTCO roller guides and AFTCO Unibutts
Tri-Flex Graphite InshoreTwo spin models, the TFX 7030S and TFX 7040S in 30lb. and 40lb. respectively, join the 20lb. model. And the lightning fast action 7650CT joins the 7020 CT, 7030 CT, and 7040 CT, adding power to move the most difficult Stripers, Blackfish, Amberjack and Grouper quickly away from line-parting wrecks.
Inshore ClassicAs the quality and function of saltwater spinning reels increases, so too does Lamiglas' selection of premium quality rods to match, Constructed from proprietary G1000 graphite the new IC 76 MHS and IC 76 HS at 7'6" each and rated for 12-25lb. and 15-30lb. line respectively provide incredible responsiveness and quick, lightweight handling for all-day comfort.
Kayak SeriesAs the first manufacturer to deliver rod designs specific to the needs of the kayak angler, Lamiglas leadership in this area will only continue. For 2008, the new LK 7230 S, a 7'2" spinning rod rated for 30lb. line joins the selection as just the beginning of things to come for serious kayak fishermen.
Travel SeriesThe new XTC 7030 and XTS 7030, in casting and spinning respectively, represent two highly versatile 30lb. rods every traveling angler should own. Their 3-piece, 7' design makes their arrival at your destination a sure bet. Their power and moderate-fast action are suitable for sailfish, roosterfish, tarpon, school tuna, dorado... all the most prominent species anglers are likely to find.
Don Iovino Signature SeriesDon Iovino has a cherished history in bass fishing as an innovator of both tackle and technique and a member of the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame. Often referred to as the "Godfather" of finesse fishing, Iovino's instruction has increased the knowledge and success of anglers nationwide. Embracing Iovino's ongoing commitment to furthering angler skills, Lamiglas has partnered with him to introduce four new Iovino "3+" rods. The term "3+" comes from Iovino's principle that each of these rods will excel in more than 3 applications each.
XMG 50While graphite handles highlight the incredible sensitivity of our XMG 50 steelhead rods, there has been enough uproar from cork traditionalists that offering these outstanding drift rods with cork handles only makes sense. For 2008 the EXC 96M-C and EXC 10M-C are available with premium grade cork grips.
Certified ProCompletely new to the Certified Pro Series, world's most accomplished line of steelhead and salmon rods, is the addition of the two-piece X 113 M-CP. With the CP designating its "Center Pin" handle configuration, this 11'3", moderate action rod is designed for float fishing in the Canadian style. Its 8- to 15-pound line rating will excel under a wide variety of fishing conditions.
The new X 96 JC-GH is the venerable X 96 JC, a staple rod of steelhead anglers, now available with front and rear graphite grips. Lamiglas graphite handles provided enhanced sensitivity, long wearing durability and long-lasting good looks by eliminating all cork on the rods.
Certified Pro FiberglassAngler enthusiasm for Lamiglas premium fiberglass rods continues to grow exponentially. New models for 2008 include the XCF 802, a plug rod that bridges the gap between light steelhead (XCF 801) and fall chinook (XCF 803). More unique to the line is the XCF 906, a powerful one piece 9' sturgeon rod designed for Canada's Frazier River that will be equally at home on the Columbia as well as California's Delta.
G1000Exceptional demand and rapid expansion of Lamiglas XMG 50 and Certified Pro series rods featuring graphite handles has lead to the expansion of the concept into the G1000 line up. For 2008, four models of G1000 salmon/steelhead rods, including the G 1303-TH, G 1382-TH, G 1310-TH and G 1314-TH, are available with Texalium handles. Texalium, a fabric similar to graphite, offers similar core characteristics, along with the added advantage of stylish colors. The G1000 Texalium handles are a pewter tone, complimenting the classic appearance of G1000 rod blanks perfectly.
Woodland, WA: Lamiglas has introduced the all-new XMG 50 Series Salmon/Steelhead rods. The XMG 50 series breaks the confines of what traditionalists say a rod "should be," and delivers what a rod "can be."
