Lamiglas The Closer Centerpin Rod
Select from the models below
The Lamiglas "The Closer" Centerpin Rod is designed to be a true float rod. This rod series offers the perfect taper and balance for anglers fishing for steelhead and salmon on the Great Lakes, Pacific Northwest, and Canadian waters. These super-responsive blanks were designed by Lamiglas and Rod Consultant, Roger Hinchcliff, to provide the best actions and a powerful bend, yet still protect light leaders.
"The Closer" Rods feature beautiful, polished graphite blanks with a fiberglass weave over the butt sections. The design distribute pressure throughout the blank for a forgiving but powerful backbone. Have a stout fish headed for the rapids? You can turn fast and furious fish easier than with traditional floppy Centerpin Rods. Have a fish coming out of the water fast with barbless hooks? These rods are not stiff and allow a fish to twist and turn.
Larger REC recoil guides on the top section help avoid icing, plus you'll find a brand-new REC double-ring recoil guide on the tip-top. The lower ceramic guides are sensitive, strong and lightweight. Recoils result in less tip weight and hold up well to bank, brush and boat use.
The carbon fiber weave handle is a new advantage in sensitivity. The materials used in this handle configuration are designed to maximize vibrations, while being highly durable. These handles clean off nicely from bait use (like egg skeins) and grip very well in wet or dry weather. You will notice that the CFX carbon fiber handle warms to your hand quickly, making it perfect for cold-weather angling. A sleek black butt cap lets the rod balance expertly and protects it when set down on the bank or on a boat floor.
Let the Lamiglas "The Closer" rod amaze you and everyone else on the water with its top-of-the-line performance and style.
- Perfectly balanced
- Woven carbon fiber handle
- Oversized black Recoil guides
- Manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty
The Lamiglas "The Closer" Centerpin Rod is made in the U.S.A.
Ratings & Reviews
Great rod when you can get away with thicker tippet and height lb test lines (10lb and above). One of the most sensitive rods I’ve owned and it has a tremendous backbone with the ability to get fish out of wood quickly or bringing large fish back up river after a long run. If I had one critique it would be it’s tippet protection when the water is clear or at a heavy pressured tributary that requires 6-8lb test. If tippet and line protection is a concern, I would recommend the 13’ and above vs the 12’ rods. Overall, great rod, worth the money and this thinf is durable!
Best Float Rod Ever
The closer blanks are by far the best float rod blanks I have ever used. My favorite all around float fishing rod is the closer 12’ 6-12lb. This rod has amazing back bone for running 12lb yet it’s perfect parabolic bend and action can protect 6lb leaders for those finesse fishing days. I truly believe the action on this rod allows you to drive better hook sets which leads to more fish landed. It certainly is an investment but it’s one that is well worth it. Lamiglas stands behind this product with a lifetime warranty so that is another way to justify the investment. I would recommend seriously considering the purchase of a closer to anyone who float fishes.
Merry Xmas for my son
This was a gift for my son who is into Salmon and Steelhead like I was when I was younger. This is what he asked for for Xmas last year. The look on his face when he came and got it was worth a thousand words. Totally happy and thrilled. He will many many trips of pleasure with this rod. I couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you FISH USA, fast and excellent shipping. Fantastic packaging and 1000% satisfaction.
You wont be disappointed!
You cant beat this rod! Great back bone for setting the hooks on long drifts, light weight, and looks awesome! I love the depth markers on the rod makes for easy adjustments with your float, and you know what depth your hooking fish at! You will not be disappointed with this purchase
Best Rod Around
by Chromer -
Bought the 6-12 lbs models (fixed reel seat and sliding rings), strongly prefer the fixed reel seat despite it being my first center pin rod without sliding rings. Paired very well with a Kingpin Zeppelin. My primary use is for steelhead but have also used this rod for coho and chinook salmon; no complaints at all. This rod has unmatched stopping power but has a light enough tip to help protect light leader. The only aspect about this rod I am not 100% pleased with is the handle/grip. The carbon fiber weave is slightly abrasive and has worn the skin between my fingers raw after catching a good number of fish in a day. Might just be how I grip the rod but I've never had an issue with the grip on any other rod. I wrapped the grip in front of the reel seat with black hockey tape, problem solved. Absolutely love the guides on this rod as well as the depth markers built into the rod. This rod is awesome... You get what you pay for.
