Rod inf0
Feb 1st, 2007, 2:44pm
 
I just picked up (impulse purchase) a Lamiglas 9' 8wt MF908 for what I believe was a good deal.
 
My research has turned up inf0 on the G1000 series from Lamiglas, but nothing on the 908. It's a Moderate/Fast action rod with backbone. While I don't really have a need for an 8wt in this area, I thought it would make a decent rod for steel, pinks and silvers following my relocation to the north country in a few months.
 
Anybody know anything about the 908 or Lamiglas in general?
 
Thanks......tight lines.

In general the Lamiglas rods I've seen are slower than stated. The MF908 is an older model. The last one I saw was on sale for about $60.00 I think it might make a decent saltwater rod, where backbone is important.

Thanks.....that's what I'm looking for. It has backbone and I need something that can take hard use, that I'm not going to be worried about scratching when busting brush in southeast. It should do the job, and for $35.00 bucks it's a steal.
 
P.S. Hitting Margarita for a little float tubing this weekend. I've got to get out of the house. I'll post results on Monday.
 
Thanks.
