G1000 rods return to their classic polished blank finish for 2013. Beauty aside, performance is where the G1000 series shines. Lamiglas G1000 series earned their place in angling history by providing high-quality American-made fishing tools at an honest value. Most are highlighted with technique and territorial names like Hot Shot Magnum, Salmon Moocher and Back Bouncer, but please don't assume these are the sole application in which these rods excel. Our Herring rod is an exceptional big bobber rod. The Hot Shot Magnum fishes divers and bait with result-generating perfection. And the Kenai rods knock the fins off salmon, wherever they swim. G1000 rods are purebred workhorses, accepting the challenges of demanding fish and techniques and responding with a power, form and function for a lifetime of heavy use. New features include deep pressed guides and blank-thru reel seats on drift fishing models.
