St. Croix has re-designed their Legend Tour rod series for 2012. The improvements include a new cork split rear grip, new reel seat, fore-grip and winding check. The Legend rods make use of Fuji’s K stripper guides in the first couple of positions and micro guides to the tip. The new Legend’s should be available in the fall and should retail from $230.00 to $270.00.
St. Croix has also introduced the all new Rage series of rods which is targeting the bass angler and has casting and spinning reels in the line. These rods make use of Pac Bay micro guides and reel seats. The handle is not a split grip but rather one that is machined and covered with a neoprene material for a positive grip that when wet, improves. The Rage series will retail for between $150.00 and $170.00. They should be available by late fall.
