Comparing the Lamiglas XCC1142XH and NFC 360 Pro 926-2
Posted by: Matt Hehn (---)

Last year I build a set of Lamiglas XCC1262XH rods for fishing Dipsey divers on the Great Lakes. The rods have worked out great and I would like to build a set of shorter rods to use as low diver rods. I would like to get the XCC1142XH but it is out stock. The NFC 360 Pro 926-2 looks to be very similar. I was wondering if anyone has any insight of the NFC blank and how it would compare.

Thank you for your comments.

Thanks,

Matt Hehn

The NFC blanks are new, get with them and find out how much lead they will carry, here on the Columbia River it is not strange to see the Lamiglas carrying 20 oz. trolling. Lamiglas is in the same town on the other side of the freeway and have been the gold standard for some time, so I know NFC has an idea of where they stand.

Matt,

The 360 Pro Blanks were designed specifically for trolling plugs, diver and bait, and 360 flasher type applications. The lure weight listed is a casting weight (if you were to cast that lure from shore) If you are using as a trolling application - double the lure rate.

Hope that helps,

Aleks
