The Rebirth of the Lamiglas X-11
The brand Lamiglas has been a stalwart of fishing rod manufacturing since 1949, continuously designing and building fine fishing tools for anglers. In the salmon, trout and steelhead world, Lamiglas rods are used daily by guides and anglers for technique specific fisheries.
Although Lamiglas has high-end fishing rods in the upper echalon, there is a series that has garnered massive appeal without a big price tag. The X-11.
Best Selling Salmon & Steelhead Rod
Some rods can be purchased for next to nothing these days, but compromises must be made. One of the most appreciated aspects of Lamiglas salmon & steelhead rods is that they do not compromise where it counts, and that goes for the X-11 series as well.
The X-11 series is based off of proven Lamiglas designs for almost every fishery & technique there is. They are firmly placed within the salmon and steelhead world with rods for trolling, anchoring, bank fishing or casting from a boat. With strong, sensitive graphite and new Seaguide components - the X-11 are professional tools within a price range that most anglers can afford.
Newest Updates to the X-11
Gloss Graphite Finish
The classic 'Merlot' color of the X-11 has now been replaced with a gorgeous gloss graphite finish. This graphite gray look brings to mind the high-end look and feel of famous Lamiglas designs, but retains excellent durability with the additional coating. These rods are sensitive and strong.
With the recent introduction of graphite handles to the series, you can now choose between cork or graphite handles. On a personal note, I love the look and feel of the graphite handle, but many anglers love their cork and Lamiglas has given both options to suit everyone.
Seaguide Chrome Guides
High-Tensile Strength w/ Deep-Pressed Ceramic Inserts
Lamiglas has incorporated Seaguide components into many of their rod series and the X-11 is no different. The updated guides are a lightweight and durable option that works well with the braids, flouros and monos used in modern fisheries.
