???Lamiglass Sweetwater Rod???Ideas???

Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

Here are the rod specs:

 

Lamiglass SUL681F

It is 5.5 feet and rated for 1/8 - 3/8 oz

 

It will be matched with a Shimano Stradic 1000fh

 

Here are some of my thoughts:

 

Grip:

8 inch cork with slip rings.

 

Guides:

Fuji LVSG 12 10 8 7 7 7 and an SiC top.

or

The concept series guides, but I'm not sure they are worth the extra $$$.

 

Any thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated.

 

Praying for spring,

 

Stroth

Al:

 

Thanks for the help. You haven't steered me wrong yet. I'm curious why the larger ring sizes.

 

Also, I've checked mudhole, custom tackle, and jans netcraft, none seem to have the yags in the six?????

 

Thanks again

My error. The smallest is an 8L or you could go to a single foot fly guide for the smallest.

Thanks AL

 

I'll most likely go with another 8 will that cause problems?

 

I'm still curious about the larger guide rings you recc. I am assuming that larger rings will improve the casting of the rod and the ones I thought of were too small, am I right?

 

Thanks again

Matt,

 

You are correct. The larger stripper guide will improve your cast. You will need to tape the guides in place and test cast until all line slap has been eliminated by moving the stripper guide as needed.
