I JUST received a gift of a Lamiglas Kayak Fishing Series Rod LK 76 20C 7 1/2 foot 8-20 pound 1/2-11/2 ounce lures. Features medium length cork handles and Fuji guides. Has anyone used or reviewed these new rods yet?
It looks like a decent plastics rod for 3/4 ounch leadheads.

Ihave not seen or heard of this model until it was brought up here, but I have several Lamiglass rods and am very happy with them. THese are ones that I bought the blank and made rods for use in the bay and ocean. I have caught all sorts of fish on them all the way to cobia (52 pounds on a 20 pound class rod and reel) and dolphin (dorado, mahi, etc.) up to about 30 pounds.

Here's a link to the model in question;

a bit pricey, but with the quality record I've had with mine it's not too bad. Of course these are what the factory sells them for and could probably be gotten cheaper in a retail store.

I have one and am going to do a full review of it. Off that bat I thought it was a little whippy but it firms up toward the butt nicely. I think will make a nice rod for blues and stripers.

The St. Croix inshore series matches up very well to the Lamiglas. Both are great for kayak fishing. But I just got ahold of a Tsunami classic 7' 15lb-30lb 1oz to 4oz rod. Its is a great rod to at half the price. The fish won't tell the difference.

honestly, what is the need for a kayak rod?
i think its just a way for the rod manufactures to get in on a rising new "sport".

Rick wouldnt get it... he could fight a fish around the bow of his boat with a piece of line mono tied to a chopstick... some of us on the other hand prefer the extra reach
