Lamiglas GSB 120 1L

Does anyone have any experience fishing the Lamiglas GSB101LS, or fishing a custom from that blank (GSB 120 1L)? I wanted to get some feedback on its power and action while whipping pencils.

I will not be cutting this blank.

Thanks

I have built some rods on this blank but it's been so long ago my memory as to any real specifics is a bit murky. I can recall that most who asked for this blank were plugging, not bait fishing. It's not a terribly fast taper, as many plugging blanks are, but seemed to work well for that purpose.

All the Lamiglas graphite surf blanks are very nice blanks.

Thank you for replying, Tom.

I really like the GSB line for plugging — I fished a 120 _2_L for many years but wanted something a bit more able to handle 3 oz, but still be versatile enough to toss a 4.5” Slug-Go on a 3/8 oz jig head. The 2L whipped pencils adequately, but the 1L seems more powerful and stiffer.

1201L will be great for pencils and smaller metal lips and other treble hook applications but for jigs I prefer a faster action I would recommend an odm nex1 105 or the 9’ .5-3.5 nex1 for lighter lures if you aren’t set on a 10’. To me they are a better all around blank. Or the odm genesis 10’ which is rated 3/4-4 I believe.
