St. Croix Premier Spinning Rods


St. Croix Premier Spinning Rods set the standard for quality, American made spinning rods at a reasonable price. Premier rod blanks are designed with the lightweight SCII graphite and are tastefully outfitted with high-grade components. SCII is a powerful and durable mid-modulus graphite that is light and sensitive and creates a rod with exceptional "feel." These rods range from ultra-light power to extra-heavy power making them incredibly versatile, and are ideal whether you're chasing crappies, trout, walleye, bass or pike.

Features of St. Croix Premier Spinning Rods include:

  • Premium SCII graphite blanks
  • Outstanding strength, sensitivity and hooksetting power
  • Finely tuned actions and tapers for superior performance
  • Batson Forecast hard aluminum-oxide guides with double plated black chrome frames
  • Fuji DPS reel seat with frosted silver hoods
  • Premium-grade cork handles

St. Croix Premier Spinning Rods are made in the U.S.A.

 Steel head rod for kayak.
Pros: Good Tip Action, well balanced, sensitive.good power for big trout
Cons: No faults with these rods
Comments: Great rod good response. I needed a rod that would handle trout up to 10lbs with fast tip for light bites. (steelhead) Most would go with a 8 ft to 9 ft rod. That would not work for me as I do a lot of fishing from a kayak. The long rod makes it so hard to get the fish close to the boat. Also a long rod is easy to get caught on logs, trees and other river obstructions. This 7ft 6 in St Croix Premier is still a little long for the combat kayak fishing I do but it fits better than any other rods so far.
 Top Quality
Comments: Top Quality Rod and Top Quality Service. Thanks!
 This is simply a great ultra light!
Pros: Extremely sensitive
Best Uses: trout, Trout Bass and Panfish
Comments: I paired with rod with a Shimano ultra light reel holding 4 lbs DAM Tectan line and this rig casts like a dream. I don't think there is any sacrifice in action on the rod if you buy the two piece over the one piece like I did. The rod is well-built with smooth guides. THe action on the rod is very fast and senstive. I haven't had to test its durability or strength quite yet as I'm sorry to say the trout I've been catching with it just haven't been that big but that's only a matter of time. St. Croix builds a great rod at a competitive price and I like their warranty options too. You can call customer service and they can help you pick out a rod that best suits your needs. IMO, you won't be sorry if you buy a St. Croix rod.

 rod that does the work for you!
Pros: accuarte casting, Sensitive, Long casting, Flexible, Lightweight
Best Uses: River Fishing, Large Fish
Comments: I purchased the 7 footer, simply the rod does the work for you! Since it is very flexable rod it is actaully set the hook as much as the fish pull it even without the need to pull the rod up with most rods! Because of the rod profile, it almost impossible to get a fish unhooked. Cheers Ohanes

 finally, a travel rod with good feel
Pros: Easy To Transport, Sensitive, Accurate Casting
Best Uses: Trout Bass and Panfish
Comments: I've been looking for some time now for a travel spinning rod with good feel that was a decent length when assembled (6' or longer), but broke down into a small package (less than 20") for transport on my motorcycle. It also had to be sensitive enough to use 4 lb test line effectively. I thought I was going to have to purchase a custom rod until I found this St. Croix Premier Traveler. This is a terrific rod at a price much less than custom. In addition, St. Croix includes a rigid rod case (cordura covered) for transporting the rod securely. For info purposes I've matched this rod with a Quantum Catalyst CT10 PTi-A reel, and the combination balances very well.
