Lamiglas Restarts Their Bass Franchise with Excel II

 

Date: 7/18/13
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: Lamiglas
Reviewer: Cal








Introduction:
Lamiglas has always been a powerhouse in steelhead and salmon rods but since the departure of BASS Elite pro, Skeet Reese from their list of sponsored pros, Lamiglas has not had the spotlight in regards to bass fishing rods. They're looking to change that now and it begins with the redesign of one of their more popular lines.

 

 

 

Excel II: The original Excel series was one of Lamiglas's better selling lines but the price point on series had crept up from right around $110 depending on the model to upwards of $140. This year, Lamiglas is making the line much more compelling that with a redesign of the entire series.

 


Lamiglas refreshes their bass line with a revamp of the Excel line, now called Excel II.

 


They will sport Fuji split reel seats.

 

Changes to the Excel line, now the Excel II include refined tapers, Fuji SK-2 reel seats, a guide system with deep pressed inserts, and a new aqua-blue finish - all for $99.

 


And a quality guide system.

 

There are thirteen (13) models in the lineup, ten (10) casting and three (3) spinning. The casting models include one cranking stick and one flipping stick then three different powered seven foot sticks and four different powered seven foot three inch sticks. The spinning rods are all seven feet, one inch in length.

Thanks to Justin Lucas for walking us through the new Excel IIs by Lamiglas.

 

Conclusion: It's been very quiet over at the Lamiglas camp over the last few years - at least with regards to bass fishing. We're glad to see they're diving back into the market with an update to their Excel rods and look forward to seeing more updates and additions in the future. Thank you Justin Lucas for our introduction into the new Excel II sticks.
