The St. Croix Legend Xtreme Casting Rods are incredibly light and sensitive, yet have plenty of power when you need it. The Legend Extreme rods feature St. Croix's premier SCVI graphite material, a 62,000,000 modulus, high-strain graphite that compliments Legend's core of SCV graphite. The SCV graphite material is itself an extraordinarily high-modulus/high-strain graphite fiber featuring a carbon-matte scrim. It is considered the highest quality all-purpose graphite blank material, and is exclusive to St. Croix.

The Legend Xtreme rods also feature the exclusive Integrated Poly Curve Technology (IPC). IPC eliminates all transitional points in the rod blank, resulting in smoother action, increased strength, and greater sensitivity. Legend Xtreme's Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART) is a carbon fiber material that adds 10x strength with virtually no increase in blank diameter or weight. ART significantly improves hoop strength of the blank by preventing it from deforming or "ovaling" under severe load, such as a powerful hook set.

These phenomenally sensitive, smooth and light rods feature ultralight and durable REC Recoil guides and a Fuji SiC tip guide with a titanium coated frame. Attach your reel with the Fuji ACS Reel Seat. No detail is overlooked, down to the machined-aluminum wind check, premium grade split grip cork handles, and two coats of FLex Coat slow-cure finish.

  • The Avid Series casting rods from St. Croix are the rods bass anglers have been dreaming about. These rods deliver strength, durability, and a light-weight rod all in one package that will keep anyone from showing up at dinner time.
  • These blanks are 100% high-modulus SCIII graphite that have been designed to give the perfect medium crankbait action, plenty of hooksetting and fish fighting power and the ability to cast a crankbait as far as you could want. Proudly made in the USA.
  • Designed for the serious angler who demands high performance and value from their rods,  the St Croix Avid X Series Casting Rods feature St. Croix’s classic SC III graphite blanks combined with their proprietary IPC tooling technology.

  • Completely redesigned from butt to tip, the new St. Croix Legend Elite Casting Rods are loaded with St. Croix’s latest technology and refinements, including Torzite guides and SCV/SCVI graphite blanks.

  • The St. Croix Legend Tournament rods will give you every advantage you can get from your equipment. There is a reason anglers who have discovered the fine quality and American made craftsmanship of St. Croix rods are a dedicated group.

  • 2012 ICAST Winner - Best of Show Freshwater Rod Series - the St. Croix Legend Xtreme Spinning Rods are the extremely sensitive and powerful top-of-the-line rods from St. Croix loaded with all the features and technologies they have at their disposal.

  • One of St. Croix's most popular rod series year-after-year, the St. Croix Premier Series Casting Rods are handcrafted in the US to deliver a winning blend of performance and value that every angler can appreciate.

  • 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.

From: Mee: Fayetteville, AR

Comments: if i had to take only one rod on the boat this would be the one, no questions. super light super sensitive and strong. LOVE MY CROIX

From: Jeroo: IN

Comments:  I think Brian from carolina is full of it I have used ST CROIX rod for 6 yrs and never broke one yet. So someone must be using his rods the wrong way.

From: Joe: Fresno, CA

Comments: Fit and finish is top notch and they are a great company to deal with. I can feel everything with my 7'MH and 6'6" MH when I am jigging and worming. These are sensitive yet tough rods with a bullet proof warranty! I love my Croix's and have fished with all of the other big named / cost rods.

From: BL

Comments: I own several St Croix rods. Legend Extreme, Legend Elite,Legend tournament, Avid series and Premier. All of these rods have proven to be very well made rods. Having said that I must say the best part about St Croix is there service. They are always capable and friendly. Always finding a reason to help rather than a reason to say no. All rods break or get broken. Service is what seperates the good companies from the best. In my humble opinion St Croix has the best service.

From: Dan: Corinth, TX

Comments: The St. Croix Xtreme 6'8" Medium is with out a doubt the best top water pop r style bait rod I have ever used, And also the best rip/jerk bait rod I have ever used and I have tested many rods for jerk baits! When throwing a megabass vision 110 jerkbait or popmax or pop x or any style of bait in that catagory this is the only rod to throw!

From: Justin: On the water, Missouri, USA

Comments: I own a 7' Heavy action Legend Extreme and have fished with it the past two years on four separated trips to Lake El Salto. It is, without a doubt, the lightest, most sensitive, and strongest rod you can use for fishing with jigs and plastics. It is rod number ONE in my bass fishing arsenal, and I own a 10 or 12 casting rods. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Without a doubt.

From: Scott: Las Cruces, NM

Comments:These rods are worth the cash. They are superlight, ultra sensative. I have even caught a 25 lb musky on one of these rods with no problems. They also have lifetime warranty and the people at St croix will take care of you. I slammed one of my avids in the door was honest with them and they replaced it. All I had to pay was the shipping.

From:Ed: Grayslake, IL

Comments:Bought a legend series, light rod but not very tough, broke it setting the hook on a 5 pound catfish and sent it back got the replacement and it broke third trip out. Also own a mojo 7 footer heavy rod not impressed.
