The XMG 50 utilizes a blend of high-modulus graphite fibers to create a perfectly balanced, lightweight blank that is more responsive and more sensitive than anything on the market today. </p><p>Certified pro Graphite reMarkably liGhter aNd stroNGer. The Certified Pro series employ an all-new smaller-diameter blank design with an improved resin system to produce a 15 percent lighter-weight rod than comparable graphites on the market. </p><p>G1000 Graphite a laMiGlas eXClusive.This is our most distinguished and versatile material. We employ first generation graphite coupled with a special resin formula to reduce overall weight while maintaining exceptional flexibility. </p><p>fiberGlass e-Glass earNed its plaCe iN history.This material is structurally the most durable of the fiberglass family. The glass properties are expressly matched to each unique application. We use the same epoxy resins and technology in these rods as we do in our graphite rods to offer you lighter weight and improved sensitivity.</p><p>tri-fleX eXClusive Graphite/fiberGlass CoNstruCtioN.A graphite base and fiberglass overwrap is reinforced with graphite through the butt and mid sections. You get the best of both worlds. We refer to this as tri-wall construction. The tips are lightning fast and softer so they cast live bait as well as throw heavy iron, while the graphite reinforced portion of the rod gives tremendous fish-fighting control and lifting power. </p><p>Action is the measurement of deflection or flex the rod exhibits under load, and more impor-tantly, where that flex occurs along the length of the blank. Extra Fast actions concentrate more of the flex towards the tip. Slow actions distribute the flex progressively throughout the entire blank. Lamiglas rod actions are dictated by a variety of factors: the intended application, targeted prey, lure weight and line weight.</p><p>power. how MuCh do you Need?Applicable to our salmon, steelhead, saltwater and bass rods, power is defined by the amount of pressure required to flex the blank. These rods are designed to optimally manage a specific range of lure and line weights. The heavier the line and lure, the more power youll need to cast, fight and pull effectively. The lighter the line and lure, the less power youll need. </p><p>weiGht. lose as MuCh as possible.A rod that feels heavier each time you cast eventually slows you down. The type and amount of material used contributes greatest to this factor. Lamiglas selects the lightest material and components for the job, but we resist the temptation to go too light. We design rods that will cast for a lifetime, without ever leaving your arms lifeless.</p><p>taper. heres the skiNNy.The measurement of the change in the diameter of the blank from tip to butt is known as taper. Many use the term synonymously with action. But actually, taper is one of the factors which rod builders use to achieve the desired action. An aggressive taper at the tip creates a faster action. A straight taper (one which changes at an equal rate throughout the blank) creates a moderate or slower action. </p><p>Model Number</p><p> s = spinning Rod C = Casting Rod T = Trigger LL = Extra Light UL = Ultra Light L = Light M = Medium h = heavy Xh = Extra heavy J = Jig P = Plug B = Bouncer + = Telescopic handle Po = Power oval Guides CP = Centre Pin TN = Tennessee handle W = Wire Line Guides</p><p>LineWeight</p><p>Lure Weight</p><p>aCTioN PoWER TyPE dEfiNEd</p><p>to seleCt the riGht laMiGlas rod, pay Close atteNtioN to the details. (we do.)</p><p>Surprisingly, there is no consistent, scientific methodology that all rod manu-facturers use to rate their rods. Some use computers. Others use complex graphs. We use fishalong with more than 55 years of experience. Each rating is a collective recommendation of the hi-low thresholds in which the rod is designed to optimize performance. The variable factors for each rod, lure weight, line weight, action, and power are clearly listed throughout this cata-log, as well as labeled on the rods just above the handle. (Not all factors are appropriate for all rods. For example, fly rods will not list a lure weight.)</p><p>weLL gLadLy be heLd accouNtabLe FoR ouR actioNs.</p><p>PRoLoNg the LiFe aNd PeRFoRmaNce oF youR LamigLas Rod.</p><p>Lamiglas fishing rods are built with the finest materials available and constructed to exacting standards. Our expectations of every rod are as high as those anglers who fish with them. With some common sense and careful handling, your Lamiglas rod will offer a lifetime of exceptional </p><p>experiences. </p><p>liNe ratiNGs The individual characteristics built into each and every Lamiglas rod highlight the rods intended use. As a part of that, the strength and flex of the blank is balanced to the recommended line ratings. A Lamiglas rod is rated so that when the rod is held at a 45-degree angle or less, line within the rating will break before the rod does. Angles greater than 45-degrees transfer undue stress to the tip section of the rod (practically eliminating the ability of the stronger butt section to carry any load), and in extreme cases can result in rod failure with as little as 2 pounds of directed pressure. It is not only proper use that requires a rod angle of 45-degrees or less, but this is also the area where youll find the greatest power from the rod and best control over the fish. </p><p>lure ratiNGsLure ratings provide a range of lure weights in which optimum performance is achieved. Using a lure that is lighter than the listed weight will not properly load the rod, casting distance and sensitivity will suffer. Using a lure that is heavier than the listed weight will overpower the rod. Again, distance and sensitivity will suffer, along with the compounded problem of overstressing the blank fibers.</p><p>reel iNstallatioN aNd reMovalPrior to reel installation, lubricate the reel foot and the threads of the reel seat. Insert the reel and tighten the lock-nut finger tight. Shake the reel side-to-side and tighten again. Repeat the process until the reel no longer moves. Graphite reel seats should never be over-tightened and pliers should never be used in the process. Over extended periods, the reel seat hood may seize to the reel foot. Slowly loosen the reel nut. If it starts to seize, tap the hood. This will break loose the deposits that have built up over time. Continue to loosen the nut. If you do not tap the hood loose, you may separate the hood from the nut.</p><p>traNsportatioNThe key to rod transportation is eliminating sharp impact to the blank. The best place for a rod to travel is inside a protective tube. If not carried in a tube, the rods should not be left to bounce against other rods or terminal rigging (weights, heavy swivels, lures, etc.) At vehicle travel speed, sharp impacts from these items can fracture the rod blanks. The best way to transport multi-piece rods is with rubber bands holding the sections together. Always affix the sections tip-to-tip and butt-to-butt. This keeps the delicate tip from being crushed against the uneven and much larger handle. Also, do not use hair bands with a metal connecting clip on rods as the metal clip can scratch, or worse, fracture the blank.</p><p>storaGeStore rods in either the vertical or horizontal position. If leaned in a corner, a set or bow in the rod can occur over time. Never leave your rods where critters can get to them. Scents, salt from perspiration and other biologic contaminates are a sure-fire attraction to undesirables.</p><p>CleaNiNG the rod blaNkThe best cleaner we have found for cleaning the blank and handle is a mixture of one part isopro-pyl alcohol and four parts warm water, along with a good dose of liquid dish soap. Using a soft sponge, scrub the blank and handle, then rinse. Dabbing problem areas with the soap mix for a few minutes before scrubbing can soften heavy build-up. Once you have the rod clean, a coat of wax will simplify the maintenance of a beautiful finish. We recommend any of the carnuba based car waxes. Fish scales and many types of bait will not stick to a waxed rod and it makes cleaning a snap. If you are fishing everyday, a coat of wax every other week should suffice.</p><p>CleaNiNG Guides aNd reel seatsAs strange as it may sound, the use of a toothbrush and toothpaste will remove the stubborn deposits on rod guides and reel seats. After cleaning the reel seats, coat with any light oil. This method works on all reel seats.</p><p>Assures you made the right choice Length</p><p>MATERIALS/PERFORMANCE</p><p>FISH WITH CONFIDENCE</p><p>Photo by: Ryley Fee</p></li><li><p>XMG 50XMG 50 rods prove that technology does increase performance.

Formally our Certified Pro Fiberglass series, for 2012 weve fully integrated our proprietary fiberglass and graphite blend throughout the line and tagged them all as Kwik rods. Why? Because kwik results are the rule here. The XCC 934 and XCC 1064s have taken over the professional guide community as the ultimate trolling rod. Long, soft, and forgiving, these rods allow trolled and back-trolled plugs and bait to produce more action. The XCC 903, 934 and 1064 are sensational downrigger rods. Weve added graphite handles to several models to enable effortless removal from rod holders. All models feature Fuji reel seats and Fuji Concept Guide System. </p><p>CASTING LGTH. PCS. LURE WT.
