    I have been reading this form and have got a lot of info from it. well I just registered and have my first question. I was just at the A/C boat show and felt a rod from Lamiglas...the tri-flex. It felt like it was sensitive enough to feel bottom bait fishing...clammin for bass/wreck fishing and strong enough for larger fish. Has anyone any info on this rod? Thanks

    i am headed to AC today:D .. i built alot on the CGBT blank which is in the triflex..the more i used the rod ..i didnt like the fast tip..for tog or Oldgrounds flukin ..lami came out with a new model its a little lighter in the tip(still not light enough for me) designed for tog here in the NE..for a "production" rod they are ok..there are some other blanks we use instead..i do like the 8' model for jigging tuna and cod, i used that last year and liked it

    Paul thanks for the reply. The one I was looking at was the Majestic series by Sea Isle MA-C84F MM 7' . They said it was the newer blank. I did like the lightness of the tip but that was just on hand pressure. What other blanks/rods do you use instead, for flukin and wreck fishing? Thanks.

    CGBT blanks are excellent for inshore fishing.
    Whether you like fast action blanks or not depends on your personal taste. I found many fishermen prefer fast action rods.
    My favorite fluke rod is 6' GLoomis CR723. I like GL2 or GL3 rods better than expensive GLX or IMX as GL2/3 are stronger and light enough.
    I even use the rod to catch stripers upto 30 lbs range.
    For togging, I prefer forgiving rod like Lamglass BM 1143 F blank though many like 7' Gloomis rods rated to 40 lbs.

    The blank I was holding was a CGBT 841L. I'd like to pair it with the shimano Trinidad or the Torium. But I am up for suggestions. I just had another fluke rod made which is just a little heavier than my favorite fluke pole...I do not know the blank. The new one is on a Rogue blank MBH 706 7' X heavy. both are paired with shimano 400 30lb braid. I'd like the CGBT to handle clammin for bass/ snagging bunker for bass (lg fish 30-40lb range), 12oz + for fluke in a fast drift, and Ling/cod/blackfish in deep water. I do not know if I am asking a lot for one rod? Thanks.

    Well I finally chose the Lamiglass triflex in medium. CGBT841M I'll try to post a picture when it is done. Still not sure of what reel to pair with it? Thanks Paul and Ksong

    Paul,
    What does "acid wrapped" mean. A local guy is wrappin them for me. I talked to tec support from Lamiglass who talked me out of the lighter blank for what I wanted to do with it I told them I'd be using up to 16oz with it. I felt the L, ML, and M. The M had a soft enough tip for me for an 8oz sinker. Thank you for your help.

    Hey Phat! Welcome to the board!

    Do a search on "Spiral Wrapped" fishing rods. They're conventional guides that are wrapped on top and bottom of a blank to eliminate rod twist under pressure.

    How'd I do Paul? LOL

    Thanks for the input everyone. I have seen this on a few fishin videos. Tom...very nice work! When a blank is rolled on the tip their is a flat spot that it settles in. I hope I am describing this well. On conventional reels you set it up on one side and for spinning reels it is set op on the other side. What side do you chose to put the reel seat?
    Paul what site are the videos?
