What anglers using Lou's Rods have to say:


Just to let you know, when I got home I gave the rod a real good looking over and it is beautiful!!! The butt wrap is stunning and the colors are vibrant. Your work is super. I am very happy!

Much Thanks!!! Vince


I have two of your custom rods, they work! I use mine for Bass & Pike, and anything else in the lakes that I can catch. The rods have a great feel to them, I can really pick up on the fish. They are also strong, I hooked into a 23 pound pike (would have come looking for ya if the rod snapped) and pulled it in. For you freshwater folks, Lou makes a great rod.

I won one of Lou's 11' Lamiglass Rods donated by him for the 2007 Korker’s Cup, Wounded Worriers Project. Man I love that rod. I couldn't put it down. I have made custom rods myself and must say you do excellent work.



I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the beautiful rod you built for me. I can honestly say that the rod is built with the greatest care and components. This has resulted in nothing short of perfection. The rod has been able to take the abuse of everything that Montauk can throw at it and is still looks and handles great. I am certain that when I need another rod I will be calling.

Being that I mostly fish Montauk, all rods have to be built strong with quality components to stand up to the abuse. I'm very hard on my equipment and I have no time for failure when fishing. Lou has built 4 custom surf rods for me over the last 2 years which have gone through hell and back on the rocks at Montauk without any problems. He has also worked on certain speciality rods customized exclusively for me. I highly recommend him.

In April of this year, Lou put together a 1321m (two piece) custom rod for me. I can't say enough about the professional workmanship and service I received. The rod is awesome. I'm very pleased with the quality of hardware, wraps and the overall performance of my custom rod. Thanks again Lou.

Two years ago I won an 11 ft Lamiglas that Lou built for Surf Rats for the Gathering of the Anglers at Montauk .Oh my, what a sweet rod. Since then Lou has built two Lamiglas "Honey Sticks" for me. The man knows his stuff and is a class act too! Best of luck, Lou.

Just want to take a minute to thank you for telling me about Redhawk...Lou. I went today to set up my rod. He has to be one of the nicest guys I have run into with the rod building search.

Thanks again, Gene

Lou is the supreme Lamiglas Custom Rod Builder and I would go no further. Designer of three of my in shore surfcasting Lamiglas, his countless attention to detail at the customers specifications is hallmark. With a rod built by Lou in your arsenal you'll have earned your time on and off the surf, and your fellow surfcasters will know you mean business...
