I have a Lamiglas PF 1084-5 blank. The date on the sleeve says 07 2002.
Insert says ”Balancing Tradition with Innovation”

Anyone familiar with this blank?
Thanks

I believe it's a fly rod blank, 4-piece, 5-weight. Lamiglas has always made good rod blanks. Lamiglas goes back a long way and were the 2nd company, to my knowledge, to offer graphite rod blanks.

It is a 9’ two piece. Seems like a nice blank-very nice finish.

I own two 5-6 wt. and one 8-9 wt., all 3 piece, these rods all had the same butt dia. .500 inches, making it a fun time building fly reel seats with wood inserts on the 5-6 rods, used a Stuble 22 titanium reel seat on the 9 wt. that loosens and tightens the seat by rotating the fighting butt. All very nice rods. You got a dandy.

My Perigees are not solid tipped, Clemen's Apogee blanks were, they were made in Japan. They are a lighter green than I usually saw used in the industry with micro flakes of gold. Sulky 142 7056 Pine Green Metallic was a perfect color match.
