production rod

Lamiglas XS101MS is about as suitable a graphite rod for pencils as you can find. Get the one piece if you're gonna whip a pencil, 2 piece ones come apart too easily due to the back and forth whipping.

 

I don't know of any good fiberglass production rods.

Minimum retail, in accordance with Lami's policy, is about $40 more on the XS101MS than on the 10' Ben Doerr. On the Ben Doerr Elite series, however, the Lami is about the same amount cheaper. The regular BD is 2-piece only, the Elite is 1-piece only, while Lami gives you a choice.

 

Action-wise, the Lami is more parabolic. Bends almost to the first guide, whereas the St Croixs bend mostly in the top quarter. The Lami has a size 10-11 tip whereas the BDs have a size 7. Much slower taper as a rsult, more of the blank bends to give that "whip" you need for making a pencil popper work.

 

Trim wise, Lami uses 5 Fuji guides, with, I think, a 50 mm gathering guide. St Croix uses 4 Pac Bay guides with, I believe, a 40 mm gathering guide. Both use Fuji seats and a cork tape grip. Both use rather plain black wraps on the guides.
