  1. For sale I have an original Lamiglas supersurf 11 foot custom. I believe it's built on the ssu 1321mh blank. Only fished a few times and I was able to fire off up to 4.5 ozs with it. The only issue is that the reel seat isn't lined up with the guides correctly so you might want to have this rebuilt. It has the old cof guides on it anyway. Asking $125 picked up in Hull MA or surrounding South shore area. Steal for a great blank! Thanks guys
  2. I'm about to purchase an original Lamiglas SSU 11 footer that I found for a steal. One piece rod and I believe it's the MH blank. For those of you who own or have fished this particular rod, how does it handle its weight range and what would you say is the sweet spot? Thanks!
  3. Found an older supersurf 11' 4-8 for a good deal so I'm probably going to jump on it. Just curious for you guys that own, or have fished this model, how does it handle its weight range? This is the two piece version. Thanks!
  4. Looking for either a 10' or 11'. Located in Hull MA thanks!

  7. Hello all, I am a Northern California striper fisherman seeking any help that more experienced members can provide me regarding the purchase of a new (used) surf rod. I fish every day, but have only started fishing the surf consistently over the past two seasons. I wanted to list as much information about my preferences as possible below (hopefully you deem it informative and not a waste of your time). I have scoured the search function for information, but am hoping for any updated detail, so please bear with me. I am looking for a new 2-piece spinning surf rod, in the 10ft range. I currently fish a Loomis SUR1266C 1-5oz with a curado 300e (30lb.), and find the setup too heavy for my applications. This new rod will not be a niche rod, but will be an all-around surf/jetty rod. I understand the difference in parabolic (lami's, S8) vs zoned action rods (VT). I have casted with conventional rods all my life, both 7' ultralight outfits up to the Loomis as previously mentioned, so can cast with both full rotation or with quicker motions as need be. When surfcasting, I cast at a 30-45 degree angle (ever slightly more vertical than 45), and I stop my casts pointing at the direction of my cast. When fishing 6 hour and my shoulders are aching however, I do tend to shorten and whip my casts unless someone near me hooks up and gives me faith that there are some fish around. 90% of the rod's application will be fishing 1 oz SP minnows, 1 oz bucktails, and 1.5-2oz metal, and 2 3/8oz super strike little neck poppers. I am hoping to pair the rod with a VS150 or VS200 reel (also yet to be purchased) as the rod will be used in wet applications. I know I will be sacrificing some distance with the VS relative to other performance reels, but I am pounding the surf almost every day and I am tired of going through stradics. Our West Coast fish tend to be much smaller than your East Coast fish, but we treasure them nonetheless. Our fish average 5-12 lbs, with anything in the 15-20 lb range being a big fish, and anything above 20 pretty much making your season. I typically will spend 3-5 hour sessions casting a combination of 75% open surf and 25% precarious footing on a jetty. A great day is catching 2 fish. Double Digit fish days happen once or twice a year, and are rare. Casting distance is a consideration, not because the fish are biting deeper, but because it might allow me to cast from a little further back and thus save me from getting pounded by shorebreak. Admiited I'm not as die-hard I'm sure as many of you casting 100 times an hour for 12 hours straight, but I think I try as hard as most. Given all of the above, I believe I have narrowed my rod choices down to: Lami SSS10MS 2G (1-3) Lami Infinity (1-3) CTS S8 (1-3) CTS Vapor Trail (1-3) CTS Surf & Jetty (1-3) Unfortunately, I do not have the luxury of testing out a variety of rods (most certainly not the CTS), as most rod shops within 1.5 hour driving distance do not carry much in terms of surf rods. So in a lot of ways, I am essentially looking to bite the bullet and buy a rod based on the recommendation of my fellow anglers. The local shop did carry a 10'6 Loomis IMX (1264S) and St. Croix Avid and Mojo (3/4-4). I was unable to cast either of these rods, but held both in hand and still felt like they were all a bit too much rod for me. Also, if it means anything at all, I wish the butt on my 1266C was about 6" shorter, as I am only 5'7, but I would not say I am experienced enough to know any better. Budget is obviously always a consideration, and I am hoping to potentially find one of these rods used. I fish every day, and I do think my shoulders will thank me after a few seasons with a newer, lighter rod. I figure an extra $100 might be worth the wear and tear on my body? So with the above being said, could anyone with experience with any/all of the above comment on their experience? Would a VS150 be too light for any of the above rods (line capacity will likely not be an issue)? As some of you will probably say, I truly believe that I cannot go wrong with any of the above choices. And I'm sure many of you may say to have a long discussion with a reputable rod builder, and I do agree, but let's say for the sake of budget that I will likely ultimately end up buying something "off the rack" or hopefully "pre-owned". At any rate, given the high pricetag(s), I figure it best to at least do a little diligence and try to find the "theoretical" best stick possible for me, and hopefully lots of enjoyment (or less shoulder ache) for the next 20 years, especially when I may never have the luxury of actually comparing one to another in person. Many thanks in advanced, and tight lines to all.
