Crafted from St. Croix's exclusive high-modulus SCIII graphite, the Avid Series Fly Rods are versatile, moderate action fly rods that load smoothly and progressively down the blank for a silky casting stroke and exceptional feel. Featuring St. Croix's exclusive IPC technology and slim profile ferrules all cloaked in a sultry canteen green pearl, these rods are nothing short of classically elegant.

The St. Croix Avid Series fly rods are built with St. Croix's SCIII graphite. This is an advanced, high-modulus graphite that delivers maximum durability and sensitivity. Not as fast as the SCIV graphite used on the Legend Ultras, the SCIII graphite blank material creates a rod with a smooth, light feel in the hand and superb power.

These rods feature Integrated Poly Curve tooling technology. The first process of its kind, IPC creates tapers that are a continuous curve from the tip to the butt of the rod - eliminating all weakening transition points. That means stronger rods and actions that cast with unprecedented smoothness. It's a remarkable performance breakthrough and it's exclusive to St. Croix.

These rods include the following features:
  • Integrated Poly Curve tooling technology
  • Premium, high-modulus SCIII graphite
  • Slim profile ferrules
  • Fuji Alconite stripper guides with black frames
  • Hard chrome, single-foot fly guides on 2 through 6 wt. models
  • Hard chrome snake guides on 7 wt. model
  • Uplocking, anodized aluminum reel seat with an ebony wood insert on 2 through 6 wt. models
  • Uplocking, anodized aluminum reel seat on 7 wt. model
  • Select-grade cork handle
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Lifetime limited warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service

These rods are available in the traditional two piece models and four-piece travel models.

All Avid Series Fly Rods come with an attractive 1000 Denier nylon covered rod case with a divided polypropylene liner.

I bought my 6' from Fish USA because they had the best price [...]. It is the finest fly rod I have. Roll cast? piece of cake. Strong? I landed a 17 3/4" brook trout on it. Sensitive? I caught a 4" native brook trout on it. Again, the best on the market. And, American made.

I've been fly fishing for over 30yrs. and this is by far the best rod I've ever owned. After purchasing this rod (9'6wt) I sold I all my "high end" rods. This rod out preformed them all - hands down. From Smallmouth Bass to Tailwater Rainbows this rod has the power and sensitivity to handle any situtation.
Pros: Easy To Transport, Sensitive, Durable, Accurate Casting, Flexible, Good Tip Action
Cons: none
Best Uses: Smallmouth to Rainbows

I also appreciate the time spent with the folks at FishUSA that allowed me to determine this was the correct rod for me.
