St. Croix Avid 13' Float rod and Fish USA

Thank you FishUSA for simply great service. Easy and fast. I had my rod in litterally a day and a half. Amazing. I currently own an older St. Croix Avid 13' float rod. I was skeptical buying a new one but the new one is great! Noticably more balanced and far more comfortable to carry around for hours on the river! You would never believe you are holding a 13' rod. Thank you for the great product and the great customer service. Mike, Steelhead Alley Ohio.

I purchased the 11 ft. light with sliding rings. I am just re-getting used to the sliding rings and the tape has been applied to make them non-sliding. I am using 8# test on a spinning reel to float fish for Bronzeheads , warm- water -admit it- carp. Tangle filled shallow river pools are a challenge with 10-15 # fish.. The rod is ideal to the task and the rod action perfect. Side pull on the rod turns the fish. St Croix makes great rods and this is one of them. I am also new to center pinning and believe this will be my go-to center pin rod.
Pros: Good Tip Action
Cons: none
Best Uses: River Fishing

This rod is a good looking as it is feeling. the ease of a cast from one of these center pin rods is something to write home about. I have this rod matched with an okuma sheffield 1002 silver and it is one of the best combinations i have ever used. This is my first center pin combo and i would highly recommend this rod to anyone that wants a solid rod for an affordable price. If you are fishing smaller creeks i would suggest an 11' rod as 13' is a bit to much.
Pros: Lightweight, strong backbone
Cons: none
Best Uses: Center pin fishing larger rivers
11' Avid is Awesome

About Me:

I just recently purchased the 11' Avid so I had a shorter center pin rod to use on the smaller creeks/rivers that I regularly fish. My 13' rod is just a bit too long to use on most of my favorite creeks/rivers... so I bought the 11' Avid. I have used the rod on three fishing trips so far and all I can say is that I absolutely love it. I also purchased an Okuma DRII reel which is a wonderful match to this rod. I have caught steelhead, brown trout, and even lake trout (fishing at the mouth of a river flowing into Lake Michigan) on this rod and the rod has handled every fish with ease. All I can say is that I wish I would have purchased this rod years ago....
Pros: Accurate Casting, Lands fish quick and easy, Easy To Transport, I really enjoy this rod, Lightweight, Sensitive
Cons: none
Best Uses: smaller rivers/creeks, steelhead

Great for steelhead and can also put the hurt on the Kings too! I thought this rod seemed a little stiff until I hooked a fish. It was perfect and had plenty of backbone to handle the larger fish.
Pros: Flexible, Durable, Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Cons: Hard To Transport
Best Uses: River Fishing, Large Fish

I bought the 11'0 model to fish smaller streams. (AVS110LM2 11' 0", L, 2 pc.) This is my first rod for center pin float fishing and I love it! It handles beautifully and it's well made. Also kudos to both FishUSA and St. Croix for their excellent service. I ordered on Tuesday and it arrived in time for a weekend fishing trip, drop shipped from St. Croix.
Pros: Good Tip Action, Lightweight, Sensitive, Flexible, Accurate Casting, Durable

.Great pin rod for the money. Well constructed as are all St. Croix. The thirteen footer is a great all around size for large rivers as well as some of the smaller creeks. I love the rod being two piece because I think a two piece rod will always have better action then a three or four piece.
Pros: Flexible, Sensitive, Good Tip Action, Accurate Casting
Cons: none

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I fish many of the large rivers in upstate ny and I can easily bring fish to the bank on 6lb line. It is a stiffer rod, but it gives you the ability to put a hook in the fishes mouth on those long drifts but still has the flexibility to protect 6 or even 4lb leaders. Excellent rod, definitely would reccomend it.
Pros: Durable, Accurate Casting, Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Cons: Hard To Transport
