Location: Las Vegas, NV

Manufacturer: Lamiglas
Reviewer: Cal








Introduction:
Lamiglas has always been a true rod manufacturing company in that they cater to more than just one market. They make rods for the river, inshore, and deep sea fishing as well as for the fly and surf anglers. This year in what's new with Lamiglas we caught up with the man in charge of operations, John Posey, who showed us their new Excel Inshore rods.

 


Lamiglas expands on their popular Excel line of rods with sticks to support the inshore fisherman.

 


The majority of these rods feature full cork grips and foregrips.

 

Excel Inshore: Lamiglas expands on their popular Excel line of rods with sticks to support the inshore fisherman. With ten rods in all and a fifty fifty split between casting and spinning sticks, the new Excel Inshore rods are built for targeting redfish, trout, calico bass, snook, and just about anything else you can find roaming the waterways.

John Posey shows us what's new with Lamiglas.

Conclusion: Inshore fisherman who seek value are in for a treat. We already know the value and fun in fishing Lamiglas's Excel series of rods for bass so the extension of this series to other markets within Lamiglas's expertise is natural. Keep up the great work Lamiglas and see you next year!
