St. Croix Avid Salmon/Steelhead Rods St. Croix has redesigned the Avid series of Salmon & Steelhead Spinning Rods from the ground up. This series has been re-engineered with St. Croix's IPC technology, delivering a new standard of strength and durability with lightness and sensitivity that makes the Avid an outstanding value. Each Avid rod is built from high-modulus SCIII graphite blanks and trimmed out with the Fuji Alconite Concept Guide System - which offers a whole new level of strength and durability with up to 80% greater compression strength than ordinary guide rings. Other features include comfortably shaped, select-grade cork handles for day-long casting comfort, skeletal-cork reel seats, and a hook keeper.

The St. Croix Avid Salmon & Steelhead Spinning Rods have the following features:
  • Premium, high-modulus SCIII graphite
  • IPC, Integrated Poly Curve tooling technology
  • Specialized, species-specific designs
  • Fuji Alconite Concept Guide System with black frames
  • Fuji SKM reel seats with gun-smoke hoods and cork inserts
  • Select-grade cork handle
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Lifetime limited warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service

All of the Avid Series Salmon & Steelhead spinning rods are two piece rods.

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I can say that I own more than a few high-end salmon and steelhead rods, and can say the latest avid spinning rods are SUPER!! I own and fish rods that cost more than double the price and I tend to grab my 9'6" MLF spinning more often than any rod in my rod rack. I would recommend teaming it with a quality spinning real (front drag) and get to the river!! I tend to use this rod most when I am restricted to one rod and will be fishing more than one technique. (I refuse to hike a northwest river with more than one rod!) I own several rods made by gloomis and the latest gearrods built by Sage and enjoy fishing them, but when I am on foot and hunting salmon and steelhead, you will find me fishing my Avid!!
Pros: Durable, Accurate Casting, Made in the USA, Light weight but powerful, Sensitive, Quality action, Good Tip Action
Cons: none
Best Uses: Salmon and steelhead, River Fishing

I've had mine for nearly 6 or 7 years.

The only problem I had was my last guide continually froze more than my buddys Lamiglas.Size is smaller. I replaced it and have no adverse effects. Love this rod! Sensitivity is amazing. Learning to trust it more every time out. For smaller streams thinking about ordering another in smaller size. I have the 9 and 1/2 footer

Cons: Eyelet too small
Best Uses: Large Fish, River Fishing
