St. Croix Legend Tournament Bass Casting Rods - $260.00 to $290.00
The St. Croix Legend Tournament Casting Rods have been re-engineered and re-designed to offer an even higher level of technique-specific tournament-grade performance. St. Croix’s high modulus/high-strain SC IV graphite blanks are even lighter and more sensitive than before, and they not only feature St. Croix’s exclusive ART (Advance Reinforcing Technology) and IPC (Integrated Poly Curve) technology - with the re-tooling also comes NSi (Nano Silica) resin - a 3M technology (3M Matrix Resin) - for vastly improved durability. All this technology yields rods with smoother actions that have no transition points, as well as an optimal balance of sensitivity and strength.
Fine-tuned with premium components like the new, small-sized Fuji K Series tangle-free Concept Guides with Alconite inserts, each rod also comes equipped with a premium Fuji SK2 split reel seat for enhanced lightweight performance and increased sensitivity transfer. When pride and money are on the line, you want a St. Croix Legend Tournament Casting Rod in your hands.

Comments: Got St. Croix 6' 10" med this rod is great for throwing topwater, great action, for $250. I wish St. Croix would address the tip heavy problem. All mine are tip heavy.
From: Mike: Japer, GA 10/2/14
Comments: Terrific rods. I have several. The 7'1" MH Fast-called the spinnerbait/Jig rod- is extremely versitile. Spinner baits, jigs, swim jigs, swim baits, worms, shallow crankbaits this rod will handle them all. Good rod to have if you fish with a friend in his boat where you are limited to the amount of rods you can take.

Comments: I just purchase my 7'4" slop n frog heavy casting rod. I was very surprise with this rod, strong back bone and has great tip. I pair up with my Daiwa Tatula Type-R left handed reel and 65Lb spiderwire zilla braid, feels GREAT! I've going to use this rod for Frog/Flipping and Pitching/Swimbaits/Spinnerbaits and buzzbaits

Comments: Power: +1 Sensitivity: +1 Balance: -1 Weight: -1. An Overpice / Still Tip heavy rod, maybe good for some applicant, but for 260.00 theirs better rods out there.

From: Kyle: WI
Comments: Their is back bone then their is POWER man o man do they have power. I came from fishing ducketts so I had high hopes and were the y met and exceeded. Love this rod I set the hook on 3 and 4 pounders and doesn't break a sweat. Made in USA. Just can't get over the amount of power you have in your hands and I use the 7'1" swim jig rod. Amazing get it
From: Don: Chicago

Comments: I am not down talking st.croix i love there rods i have my own and i inherited about 10 of them from my father when he passed away.I bought a premeir glass crankbait rod ive been using for 2 years and this past offseason the tip ring broke off and the first guide ring fell off by itself.Thats the only complaint the guide rings break out easily.
From: Tyler: susquehanna river,PA,USA
Comments: This is a great rod its lite,sensitive,and the fit and finish is all you could ask for ,and dont forget the price
From: Lenny: So Cal
Comments: I currently own two Legend Tournaments, and two more are on their way. Best rod you'll find for the money, hands down. St Croix is at the top of the rod making industry as of now, and the Legends definitely show that. St Croix uses resins and ground breaking technologies that you will not find in any other rod. I can flip a 5 pounder into the boat with ease, and never have to worry about abusing the rod. They are some of the most sensitive rods you'll find, and they're extremely lightweight too. I own the 7'1" MH Fast, which they label as the Spinnerbait/Jig-n-Worm, and it's the best jig rod I've ever found. It has a light tip for easy bite and structure detection, but it quickly stiffens up and has plenty of backbone. I can flip jigs into fallen trees and don't have to worry about pulling hawgs out. Awesome jig and worm rod, as they say. I also own the 6'8" M Fast, which is an awesome jerkbait and topwater stick. I can launch a small husky jerk a mile and the weight never wears me down. It's perfect for working suspending jerkbaits, but also has the tip and power to fish light jigs. I love it for close up spinnerbait work as well. The two rods on their way are the 7'10" H Swimbait stick and the 7'6" Mh Medium Fast Pitchin'/Light Flippin' stick. Reviews to come shortly. And no, I have no relation to St. Croix, I just love their rods.

Comments: i own four now and i will be getting more they are great all around rods feel,looks, and performance all in one! next to the legend extremes they are the favorite in my boat
From: Louis: WI
Comments: Got the Big Cranker a few weeks ago and dig it! I've had no problems with it so far, but you should put something on the cork to make it last longer, it's a little soft but its comfortable. Pairing it with 10lb Abraz X and a DT 16. Ready to destroy some fall bass!
From: Will: GA
Comments: i got the spinnerbait/jigandworm rod. nice sensitive stick. a bit tip heavy. the two peice reel seat is junk and it slipped and slid up the rod and needed to be glued back on with epoxy. a bit expensive for the quality. i like loomis more
From: Grady: Mars, PA
Comments: I just bought a 2012 St Croix legend tournament bass on 6 5 2012 on the 10th cast the 3rd eyelet broke off the rod. Returning to Bass Pro and hoping it was a fluke. St. Croix seems to be a good company and I will give them another try.
From: Chuck: Douglasville, GA
Comments: First, I am a St Croix groupie/nut. So I am slightly biased. I got the 7'4" Frog n' Slop and paired it with a Lew's Tournament Speed Spool 7:1 with 65lb Sunline braid. WOW! This combination ROCKS. I was deep in the lettuce yesterday and this pole never faded. My confidence to get up in the mess is very high. I see some top water TOADS in my future!
From: Jason: Stafford, VA
Comments: Have the 7 foot heavy action rod for frog fishing, as well as the 7'4" heavy legend tournament frog rod, both rods are fantastic rods extremely light, but the back bone is extraordinary, But seeing as how before I upgraded to the slop n frogs i fished my frogs on a 7 foot MH mojo and never had a problem I knew the backbone wouldnt be an issue. as for the xtreme I love the ACS reel seat, much more comfortable than the 2 piece of the legend tournament, and the recoil guides I love, never have to worry about breaking guides when fighting a big fish, and sometimes fighting big fish in heavy cover non recoil guides can tend to flex. Only problem with the 7 foot slop n frog is the tip isnt as soft as the 7'4" one, and ive noticed that on pretty much all 7' heavy rods no matter the brand, its like they get a heavy blank and cut down the tip to make it 7 feet, making then stiffer, also the 7'4" has better leverage than the 7 foot which is extremely important in frog fishing, backbone and tip are all well and good, but leverage helps. All things considered both rods are fantastic just hoping St. Croix revisits the slop n frog series in mojo and legend extreme series and make then 7'4" , they hold more guides cast further etc, I'd pay 450 for a 7'4" heavy frog legend extreme no problem
Comments: Nice rod, not crazy about the logo/graphics, but for $250 they need to do better than Alconite inserts.
From: Jason: NC
Comments: To address Ben's concern about the strength of the reel seat -- nothing to worry about. I've boated many fish over 5 to include a 12.2 with no problem at all.
From: John: San Antonio
Comments: Have the 7'4" slop n frog rod, great rod, strong back bone, soft tip, softer tip than the old 7 foot frog rods. I can skip a frog, cast it whatever, only complaint is the two piece reel seat, for rods like frog rods, and flipping sticks etc i like a one piece reel seat, like the fuji acs on the legend extreme, it just seems stronger than the two piece, that being said this seems to be one of the strongest two piece reel seats ive seen or used, can't really comment on strength of the reel seat just yet, haven't had that big bite on this rod yet, as soon as I get that bite(im talking 5+ pounds(where I'm at probably will come round february) I'll be able to better comment on the reel seat, it seems strong enough, maybe im just being anal.
Comments: Great rods! Super light, strong backbone, very sensitive. I have the 7.11 heavy and 7.3 Xheavy. Everything is great quality and I plan on purchasing more. They are my go to sticks when fishing nasty cover for big bass down here in South Texas -- they've never let me down. The only issue I have is that the cork handles are so smooth, they get extremely slick when my hands get sweaty in the Texas heat. Other than that, they are the best rods in my boat.

Anyone who throws crankbaits knows it takes the right rod to really be effective. We want medium action rods that won't tear out hooks but not a noodle rod that can't set a hook or move a big bass. Many companies are forced to use fiberglass for their cranking rods because it is very difficult to design a 100% graphite rod that has the right action and power with out collapsing under pressure and shattering with a big fish on the line.
