View Full Version : Lamiglas
Do any of ya'll have any experience with Lamiglas? How is the quality? Do you recommend it?
The price on the blanks are very reasonable.

They have been around a long time. Like Fenwick though, they are a mostly west coast thing. Anglers Workshop in Washington state (anglersworkshop.com) has always sold their blanks. Hook & Hackle used to sell them-maybe they still do. Get an Anglers Workshop catalog. There are ten pages of Lamiglas blanks in there.

You'll love Lamiglass if like full flex, slow, easy going fly rods. I had my old six footer that the last Fling. Those who had the chance to cast it commented favorably. Check the clemenstackle.com web site. They had some blems for a great price a while back. Blanks only, but they were under $40. Remond me, if you don't buy before then, to bring my lamiglass to the next Fling. I'll let you take for a spin.
Lamiglas was the first graphite flyrod I bought.I remember I was using bamboo and glass mostly at the time and found the Lamiglas marked down from 110.00 to35.00(!!)in 76.It was a 7wgt and was so slow and easy I swear you could light your pipe waiting for your back cast to straighten.I recently passed it on to a young man just taking up flyfishing and he likes it very much as I did.
I am thinking of buying a blank and building a salt-water rod.
Does anyone have any other suggestions on a blank I could buy for under $100?
I'm thinkg maybe a 9' 8wt in Graphite.

Order Cabela's Tackle Craft catalog. They'll have a rod kit or blank that will fit.
KB - Check w/ David Edens @ Blue Ridge Rods.
I'm gonna build a 9' 9wt 4pc in the up coming class and the blank I choose was under $100.
