How does the guide spacing look? Do they have the made in china stickers on them? I know I am really anxious to compare them to the Shimano Clarus, just waiting for Jason to get back with me...

How would you say they compare to your SST rods? I've got a couple cheaper rods that need replacing and, since I've been happy with my SST's, I was going to get a couple more of those. But I'm curios now about these X-11's.

I can tell you right now that the shimano Clarus is a better rod then the SST. I am anxious to put a clarus up against a x11

Hi, I have been looking for a steelhead spinning rod to cast/drift spoons and spinners. Does anyone know what is the rod action on the LX96MS and LX86MS rods? I couldnt find the rating. Thanks.

Both rods should be a Med action rod. The only difference is the lenght on the rods as both are 8-12lb. I will shoot Cheater a text, and see if he can chime in on here as well.

I just cant figure out why they dont have a true side drifting rating int he line up. I have not handled the 9'6 6-12 and I supposed if the action was right it could work but most of the best side drifters I have fished at 4-8lb rated or similar.... Any had the chance to drift out of a boat with the 6-12's? How was it?

A slow action 6-12 would probably work fine. I have used my Okuma guide select 10.5ft 6-12lb in a medium action and it worked ok....

Why do you need that light of a rod?? I use a 6 to 12 JS it works just fine. I also have a 4-8 and hate it cause it is too busy on a rocky bottom. I find that when a fish picks up the bait it is obvious.

We dont need to turn this into a "This is how I side drift" thread. I just prefer the lighter rod and most other brands/lines of rods support the notion that many also prefer the lighter rods. Buzz has a Ultra light 6-10, SST has 4-8, loomis has every raiting under the sun 4-8, 4-10, 6-10, 4-12... Bottom line is is the 6-12 rated rod in this line up light enough to fit into this category and still be sensitive....Again has anyone fished it from the boat what can you say about it? I hope someone I know buys one so I can fish with it haha!

I was worried about them being a little too stiff, but I was pleasantly surprised!!! They are perfect. Really soft and slow action. Much slower than I thought they'd be. I've had two guide friends over the last 2 days to check them out and both of them are already looking forward to buying them for themselves. I think the length is going to be really nice for casting super light leads is ultra clear water or long distances in bigger rivers.

I'm stoked to fish em!!!

I can't compare them to the SST yet because I haven't fished them, bit I'll fish them side by side as soon as it's steelhead season. I'm guessing the only difference is going to be the weight. The SST are a little heavier in ounces, but not much. Probably not enough to notice. I was just surprised how light the X11s were. Really light rods!

I've taken a pretty good look at these rods the past few days and they seem pretty nice for the price point. My only complaint is the guide spacing on some models and number of guides. The tip sections on most of them seem like they have 2-3 guides too many making them a bit tip heavy. JDarr, do you concur? On a different rod the first guide on the butt section seemed too far from the reel seat. Other than that, I like the looks and weight. I still prefer my SST's overall I think over these.

I don't know. I think I like the guides. They kinda add a little kore line control and I feel like I have a better even bend in the rod when there are more bending point connections.
As far as the first eye being so far up the rod, it's actually nicer for casting distance and reeling in smoother because it allows a spinning rod to fully circle the line on and off without pulling to to the middle as much. if it was 5" away from the reel, there'd be a lot more friction on the guide when you're reelig with tension on the line.
The whole argument to get these or the SST is like metal vs glass drift boats. To each his own. All my bobberdoggig rods are SST and they were flawless all winter last year. I simply wanted to try out something new so I went X11 for sidedrifters.
This is a total opinion with no proof at all, but if had to guess I'd say the SST is tougher against abuse and the X11 is a touch more sensitive. That's sorta how it works with nice graphite rods. Ugly Sticks are tougher than nails, but a GLX is 1000 times more sensitive. But you can freaking row with a Ugly Stick and a if a GLX get nicked with a piece of pencil lead, it's history.

I am curious if someone has a review on these new series of Lamiglas Rods? I heard it is a certified pro blank but mass produced overseas with only the one year warranty. Is that the case?

Certified pro blanks are made in Woodland WA, X11 blanks are made in China. Therefore they are not the same.

bobs has a sale going on sunday i think if your i fish member you get 20 percent off. call them and see. i got my 9 ft 6 6 to 15 for 71.00 plus tax when they had the rods on sale for 20 percent off. which is a great deal. i have 2 xmg's and a g1000. i usually spend more on the reel. even if the warranty is one year. if you take care of the rod they willl be fine. thought about picking up a certified pro in 9 ft 6 8 to 12 as i have a coupon for 25 percent off. but i will probably pick up a 9 ft 6 8 to 12 spinning rod one of the x11's to go with my new pflueger president spinnig reel.

I have a 15-40lb and I love it. I don't give a rip where it is made. Everything is made in China these days and it doesn't make it a bad rod. Why should I pay 200+ dollars for a rod?

I just bought a 7'10" 8-17 SST steelhead plug rod and it feels epic ! Can't wait to watch it blow up.

there nice rods for the money. i fished the x11 8 ft 6 10 to 20 today for a while drifting eggs. i like the rod just a little over kill for the small river i was fishing. but it is a great bobber rod for fishing bait for silvers and chinook. good luck with the rod im sure you will love it.

Nope just broke and needed a decent plug rod. SST's are sweet setups, I have a bunch of Lami's though.

Ahh, the way it was worded I thought you were implying something about the SST's durability. I like the SSTs, the Lamis, the Buzz's, I like 'em all!

So these are mostly a side drifting rod from the drift boat or the bank, I assume? (right side up, of course!)

Well that's like comparing apples to gold plated apples! Not fair!


I bought a couple of the 9'6" 6-10 LS for sidedrifting haven't had them out yet, but they're lighter in the hand that the equivalent SST models.

Also got an 8'6" 8-12 MS for spinners, it's nice, handled some big coho no problem, good feel and backbone. My most recent rods in that category have been other imports with the same specs, the Berkley Buzz series, the Blue G200 Lami, and an SST. I think the X11 has more sensitivity than the others, not a huge difference in backbone or action.

i have a x11 8 ft 6 10 to 20 meduim heavy casting rod i use it for drift fishing for steelhead and silvers. i like the balance of the rod. it comes with a nice cork handle. you could use this rod for chinook as well it has plenty of backbone. im useing it until my xmg is fixed. purchased it for chinook and chums. have not caught any fish on it yet besides a cutthroat this last weekend drifting eggs. im useing it for winter steelhead. the rod is more than sensitive enough to be a good drift rod!

Got to fish mine (8' 1/2" 6-12lb test) today for the first time. That thing is sweet!! Better than the GL3 I fished with last summer. Although I didn't get into a fish I am pumped, this thing should be a whole lot of fun the fish a fish on!!

Are you sure about that, I was told that they only build the pre made blanks in woodland these days. If this is not true? please someone that actually knows for a fact please chime in.

Fishalot,
The blanks on all imports are made overseas. Certified pro, g1000s, XMGs, SI, along with a lot more are built start to finish here in woodland! My brother works at the factory and see's first hand along with helping to produce the blanks. In addition to that he spends most of his time painting the rods. Hope this helps you out!

Thank you for clearing that up, I was not trying to cause problems, just wanted to get things set straight.
