Innovative design....the Lamiglas hallmark for over 60 years!
Lamiglas has been innovating in rod development since 1949. Starting as a blank manufacturer of fiberglass designs, Lamiglas evolved into the premier rod & blank company, offering technique-specific fishing rods. Innovating in graphite, fiberglass and composite designs, Lamiglas has always kept at the forefront of the industry through rapid responsive development work. Many of the top brands that compete in the industry have their roots at Lamiglas.
It’s more just than a fishing rod…it’s a Lamiglas.
The first blank ever rolled at Lamiglas was an 11' fiberglass surf blank. Long 1-piece blanks have been a specialty of Lamiglas since the beginning. Building fiberglass blanks gave Lamiglas the ability to provide top-quality USA-made blanks for surf, freshwater, fly and saltwater builders.
Lamiglas invested in hiring top-level Boeing engineers to pioneer blank designs that had never been produced before. This commitment to innovation and design provided the groundwork that continues to build today.
Factory-built Lamiglas fishing rods have been a staple of anglers for decades. Lamiglas has always been focused on innovating, even if it means being the first to try something new. As a result, Lamiglas designs have been emulated by rod builders and companies the world over. While many manufacturers have shied away from fiberglass and composite designs, Lamiglas goes full-steam ahead with them while offering the best in graphite and high-modulus rods.
With ultra-durable yet highly fishable saltwater options, Lamiglas has a strong foothold in both offshore and inshore rod design. The surf rod lineup is legendary. From the number one Northeast Surf Blank the "GSB" to the built factory sticks, Lamiglas Surf is here to stay. Salmon and steelhead rods are a first language to Lamiglas. With everything from ultra-sensitive finesse rods to powerful boat rods for trolling, the lineup is ultimately matched. The bass and walleye options provide tapers and actions that hit classic techniques squarely while allowing for some of the most precise and sensitive feels available. Fly anglers fishing for everything from trout to tarpon have options, while the rest of the lineup can outfit the most demanding of anglers.
As promised, we are continuing the Lamiglas Legacy!
Lamiglas continues to be focused on quality products and servicing our clients to the highest level. Our company looks forward to a continued positive relationship with all of the great anglers worldwide who enjoy the amazing sport of fishing.
The Lamiglas Team is committed to continuous improvement in our manufacturing processes, producing the finest quality fishing rods and blanks, servicing our clients to the highest level and continuing our innovative and industry-leading rod and blank design. That has been the hallmark of Lamiglas for over 60 years, and it will continue.
