Has JoeyKayak reviewed or anyone else used this rod yet? The specs are 7'6", 8 - 20#, 1/2 - 1 1/2OZ lures. The rod "feels" a bit lite, but seems to firm up in the butt section.
Is anyone able to review this rod?

I was given one as a gift and would like to use it for kayaking with plastics, 1/2 - 3/4 fishtraps & Crocodiles.

Hey, do either of you two want to adopt? I'll clean my own room AND do my own dishes...
They appear to be GREAT rods but way over my head when it comes to $$$$$...

I have only used it once because the winter rolled in fast. You hit the nail on the head, it has a soft tip that I thought would be too soft for me but it does firm up nice and casts like a rocket.
I will have more to say when I really get more time on the water with it.

will be putting this thread on my watch list. That 12-25 rod looks mighty nice to me. a wide range and hopefully good backbone.

Less than 50 cents a day.
Lamiglas is a great, great rod company. Legendary. You could do alot worse.
And I will have it forever. Totally worth it when I think of the stupid toys my kids destroy and the food my wife wastes.
I deserve it.

Thanks everyone, I'll keep it and use it in about 3 weeks when I launch my new Scupper Pro.
I wish it was the 12 to 25 pound test. That always seems the best to me. I have an old 196-7 Sabre that has been wrapped 3 times and I can't give it up. I agree that this very much a quality rod and worth the money. I will review this for throwing plastics in a month or so. Jeff, ScupperSkipper

I just saw that the Lamiglas Kayak rod is made of Tri-flex. Tri-flex is a fiberglass graphite composite.

I am partial to full graphite for lightness sensitivity and recoil. In the absense of a good review, looking harder at another St. Croix Tidemaster or a Shimano Teramar.
