Lamiglas 136-1MH Broken

5 posts in this topic

I can't believe I am saying this, but I snapped my telephone pole chunking 8+ bait. I'm extremely dumbfounded considering I have owned a few of these blanks, caught numerous large fish, and thrown upwards of 12+ bait with no issue. This one was the newest one, and she snapped. I have never sent a GSB back to lamiglas before. What can I expect?

 

In addition, I snapped her at a point where I can build a rod that would be 8'6"- 9' long. She snapped 2 feet or so up from the the butt. Is there any practical use for this rod now? Do people take a 136-1mh and hack 2 feet off the butt for any reason? I have heard of guys taking 1 foot off the butt for more manageability, but never any more for chunking in the surf.

You can build anything you care to. You'll be left with  roughly a 9-ft rod having a slower action and lighter weight capability. I'd contact Lamiglas first, however. Their rods don't come cheap,the company's been in business longer than any other blank manufacturer--(I think.   St. Croix might have preceded 'em.)--and I'd give em a chance to determine the right path. I'd be interested to know how ya make out. Unk.

if it broke at or below the reel seat you can fix it with a salvaged piece of blank slipped inside and epoxied, but see if Lami will replace it first.

Did the same with mine a few years back. Driving down the beach with it in the cooler rack. I put an extension in the butt where it broke off. Never had an issue and had a few good rays on it....By the time you pay shipping on that blank from Lamiglas you can go by the blank locally as Lamiglas is producing the blank again...
