I have a bunch of them and they are right up there with the best.
I'm going out to test cast the new model (1 to 4) 1204 tomorrow. I'll post up my opinion when I get back.

Hi finn-addic Nice to have another NE'r aboard :)

I went ahead and moved your thread, you may get some more opinions with it here in the Tackle and Gear forum

Lami's are exceptional rods for the surf. You're looking in the right direction!

Gave it a test run - great rod for plugging with a fairly soft tip, much softer than the old model 1204 and a tremendous amount of touch. Casts like a cannon and you can feel every thump of the plug. For a 10' rod it's very light but not discernably lighter than the XS 101 MS. The rating is 1 to 4 but I certainly wouldn't snap cast a 4oz metal with it, maybe a lob cast. Sweet spot seems to be about 2.

The negative - the action is very fast, fine for a standard cup faced popper but too fast to give much dance to a pencil popper.

I didn't buy it - I'm sticking with my 101 MS with a Penn 706 and 20# Stren Superbraid (or Fireline).

Thanks for moving post. I guess I should have scrolled down . I'm clueless when it comes to surf fishing, I mostly yak it. Time seems to be short to yak that's why I'm thinking of surf fishing for the fall run. Thanks for all input so far. I read an article about Ron Arra surf pro. It seems like a nice rod but also looks to be at the top of the lamiglas line. I'll probably go alittle less in price. Mabye something in the surf/jetty series.

I have used they for 45 years. I build them, And love them. My favorite blank is the #6702 I have 4 of them with no reelseats, just cork tape. Two whites and two honey color.
I still have my first rod from Whitty Krueger years ago. It is dark brown.

Although I have never owned one I have heard nothing but nice things about them from those that do. My experience is with All Star, St. Croix, Seeker (Black Steel), Calstar, and one called Whopper Stopper.
