In creating these rods, Lamiglas set out to do what has never been done before. These are not new rods with different cosmetics. These are handmade using a completely new production technique and graphite interlace system that simply hasn t been technically possible until now. The mandrels used to build the blanks were custom made. Several different types of graphite materials and resins were combined to perfect the desired actions. Composite graphite handles were incorporated into the design for extreme durability and longevity. The blanks are a beautiful glossy black finish that resists bait stains and cleans up easy. Extensively tested, the Redline HS have passed every test with flying colors. At Lamiglas, the motto is Fish With Confidence. The Redline HS rods raise confidence to a whole new level.
