The Lamiglas John Skinner Surf Spinning Surf Rod is a world class fishing rod! John has been fishing a version of this rod for two decades and now it is available to you! Constructed of a 10' GSB1201L blank with 10" cut off the back end, Lamiglas has outfitted the rod with Fuji Alconite guides which are made for braid and will produce longer casts, a Fuji graphite reel seat and top quality corktape fore and rear grips. Here's what John Skinner thinks of this rod:
“I use this rod for a high percentage of my surfcasting because it handles a lot of different situations extremely well. You can throw 3/4-ounce bucktails and swimming plugs with it and it allows small to medium bass to give a good account of themselves.”
“However, it’s sweet spot is probably 2-3 ounces, where it’s a superb pencil popping rod. It’s also great with bottle and darter plugs. I actually built it originally as a live and rigged eel rod for slightly heavier payloads and large (20-40#+) bass. The rod does an amazing job of whipping big fish.”
“You can get a lot of leverage on big fish with it. The guide selection and layout results in a lightweight rod with a lot of power that you can cast for hours without fatigue.”
The Lamiglas John Skinner Surf Spinning Surf Rod is a 1-piece rod and is rated 14-30 lb (mono rating) with a 2-4 oz lure rating. They are made in the USA, come with a warranty from Lamiglas. You can only buy this rod at J&H. Due to the length, we will not be able to ship this rod. It is in-store pickup only.
