Comments: This rod is the real deal! 70MHF wasn't ready for the light, sensitive and smoothness of this rod. When you fish lower end rods and then step up to this type of quality you cannot help but notice the difference. If you ever have the chance give this rod a try, you will not be disappointed!

Comments: WOW! This is definitely one of the best rods I have ever fished. It's mega sensitive, I can even feels the tinniest strikes and even stones or pebbles on the river floor, but on the other hand it is strong enough to catch a shark! Also casting is outstanding, I matched it up with the new Shimano Chronarch CI4 and WOW! what a combo. Casting is so easy, like the rod wants to cast for me!!

Comments: Excellent rods. I have 4 and many other brands, these are the finest quality of all of them and their customer service is unmatched. Finally added a lure keeper.. thank you!

Comments: Just amazing like any product St Croix makes. I don't understand the big deal of no hook holder. I grew out of fighting with them along time ago and mount all my lures on the top rail of my baitcaster. The rods sensitive, tough, and good looking. What more could you ask for?
From: Josh: NKY
Comments: The bad news: no hook holder The good news: THIS ROD IS UNMATCHED: Xtreme sensitivity, Xtreme power, lightweight, great design, handle feels great when casting, and I guarantee this rod will will last me a life time. I had never owned a St. Croix rod, but after getting ahold of this work of art (Made in the U.S.A.), I'm now hooked on St. Croix. The 7'4" Heavy rod sets the hook with authority and I can feel everything that my jigs come across. Even the softest strike from a bass is distinctive. What more could someone ask for? As I said previously, this rod is on an entire different level and are more than worth the money. I highly recommend this rod.

Comments: st croix is my favorite rod company..the new legend extremes are not for me.. NO HOOK HANGER? i know just use one of the lower guide frames still a pain. micro guides? so much for using braid and tying on a flouro leader..new reel seat and grip also a no go. grip swell is too large and the coating on the handle provides very little traction.if i hadn't gotten this rod through a warranty claim there is no way i would pay 390 for it. it is very light and very sensitive and st croix has top notch service but overall i am very unhappy with the new extremes
From: Andrew: Indy
Comments: what was St.Croix thinking on a $400 rod to not have a built in hook keeper? Can't believe they wouldn't think to include that unless... Did I get a factory defect? Rod handle is the best feeling handle on any rod I've used and I have other St. Croix's, Loomis, and Dobyns rods. It is the best looking rod in my arsenal, very light and seems to be as sensitive as they come (haven't fished it yet as my water is frozen up in MN). Other than no hook keeper, these could be my favorite rods, but I'm looking to compare to a Loomis GLX or NRX. Don't hesitate to buy this rod other than trying to figure out where to hang your lure when storing it and not wreck the areas around the guides.

Comments: These are the finest example of high end fishing rods on the Planet. they simply have "NO EQUAL" - Had them all....and rest assured- the St Croix Legend Extreme Rods are leaps and bounds over all other rods. Not to mention that this company actually wants to help you if you have a service issue...UNLIKE the others. No Names mentioned,but if you tried to compare in the very least- it would be a major fail. ST CROIX-All the way!
From: John: KY
Comments: SICK got a few rods early been in love for a while now unbelievable sensitivity it will make you not want to fish anything else!
From: Louis: Green Bay
Comments: Love St. Croix rods. But this one knock it out of the park. Have Curado 200e7 on this rod and feels so light. So light and balance its unreal. When you hook a big mama it hauls them like heavy muskie rod that feels like a tooth pick. Crazy. Saving up for another one. St. Croix does it again
