From Infinity to Pro-X, New Bass Rods from Lamiglas

Location: Las Vegas, NV

Manufacturer: Lamiglas
Reviewer: Team TackleTour








Introduction:
Lamiglas has been relatively quiet over the last year or two in the bass side of things concentrating instead on their core business of salmon and steelhead rods. 2013 marks the year Lamiglas takes another look at the saturated market of bass rods with one entirely new lineup and another they've totally revamped.

 


Lamiglas leverages the 3M's powerlux resin in their new Infinity Bass rods.

 

Infinity Bass : As the nano-tech 3M graphite materials gain acceptance, more and more manufacturers are gaining access. Lamiglas debuts their product based on this material in their new Infinity blanks. For their Infiniti Bass line, Lamiglas is taking a somewhat conservative approach only offering five models total for now.

 


These sticks are anything but conservative

 


Lamiglas' Infinity Bass Rods feature titanium framed guides.

Pro X Bass : Lamiglas's bread and butter bass line, Certified Pro, were the rods Skeet Reese fished on his way to BASS Elite Series prominence until he came out with his own series of rods with a new manufacturer. This series of rods have survived in relative obscurity ever since, but this year, Lamiglas has given the series a complete overhaul.


Certified Pro receives a new blank, facelift ...


... and a new, more modern name!

To start, Lamiglas purchased a new set of mandrels giving the renewed series faster, more current tapers. To continue, gone is the name "Certified Pro" and instead, a shorter, more contemporary name is being employed, "Pro-X". Last, but certainly not least, the entire line is being updated in terms of cosmetics too with all the sticks now featuring split rear grips and no foregrips. Expected retail of the rods in this renewed series will range from $180 - $210

Jason Hambly shows us what's new with Lamiglas for 2013!

Conclusion: We're glad to see Lamiglas taking another look at the bass market in offering a new line and re-energizing an existing with new tapers and cosmetics. Whether or not it will be enough is for consumers to decide. For now, we'll have to make room on our shortlist of products to review for the coming year.
