Personally, I am torn about Lamiglas rods. I have an "old school" (1960's) Ultralight glass rod, that I dearly love.
However, I had a bad experience once too. I bought a used Graphite Lamiglas steelhead rod in the late 80's. Before buying, I gave a very careful tip to tip exam (even bending it a great deal w/ my paws, to test it's "strength"). Everything checked out, so I bought it. I immediately took it out to the Sandy. And, you guessed it, on the 3rd cast; the butt section splintered above the handle as I cast a light weight lure.
Long story short, the rod was sent to Lamiglas for a replacement (which was their guarantee at the time). In a few weeks, I got the same rod back w/ a note saying that it was not a "manufacturing defect". So, they would NOT replace the rod. I have NEVER paid for a new Lami again...but, have picked up a few used ones for dirt cheap.
If I was going to buy a new steelhead rod today, I'd look into TFO. It's Gary Loomis's new company and rod line. Not sure what kind of warranty they have. But, I like the rods and the price is moderate. And it beats paying more for the Loomis rods.
