Re: The "other" fiberglass?

Completely agree Fred! In fact I think that the s-glass was so good it held up the popularity of graphite rods for years in the PNW, or so it seems. Light as a feather and you could really put the stick to a big fish with that strong but shock-absorbing blank. At the same time graphite technology got better and eventually the lami sales went to graphite as well, I think it was the 1000 series and LHS series rods.
