St. Croix Super Finesse Spring
Pros: Adjustability, Easy To Use, Super sensitive
Cons: Cost
Comments: Great price on the spring bobber!
 Very good spring bobber
Pros: Functional, Interchangeable
Cons: High Price, high priced, Cost, you must buy extra parts and install yourself
Comments: I used the pink/med one and it works great for pan fish, I would go heavier for larger fish like walleye. I didn't give it a five rating because of the price and you have to mount it yourself. I buy a # 8 single foot rod guide, insert a 1/8 in. rubber grommet and tie it to my rod tip.

 Best spring bobber on the market.
Pros: Easy To Use, Adjustable tension, Functional, Easy To Maintain, Durable
Cons: no cons
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I have a st. croix rod with the finesse spring and love it.So I converted some of my other rods (USE A FAIRLY STIFF ROD FOR BEST RESULTS) by adding a #8 single foot fuji guide at the tip of the rod on the top side above the orignal tip guide using guide cement and wrapping with nylon thread. You can then coat thread with clear fingernail polish or clear rod epoxy.Then get a 1/8" rubber gromet from the hardware store and insert it inside the guide. It is tough but it will go in. Then insert your finesse spring guide through the hole of the gromet, If it is very tight use a little vasaline on the spring. Always push the spring to adjust tension NEVER PULL spring to adjust, you will stretch it. Thats it.

Pros: Durable, Easy To Maintain, Easy To Use, Functional

Comments: For larger perch lures use a M/H. I started with a medium and needed to go to the next level. St. Croix should have a guide on its label to indicate the tension needed for the fish you are fishing for.

Pros: Easy To Use

Comments: This is my favorite spring indicator. Easy to adjust and change to a different spring. Hard to set up. I epoxy a guide on the top of my pole tip then put a 1/8 grommet in it and added the spring, works great.

Pros: Adjustable to line jig, Functional, Storage tube, Durable, Easy To Use
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I've used about every bite indicator produced and none of them can compare to these. The different sizes (Light - Heavy) allow you to adjust the indicator for line weight and the jig weight. Also, when the bite is light you can change the indicator to a lighter size. I'm hooked!

 Will not use anything else!
Pros: Functional, Easy To Use
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: Mounted these onto all of my jig rods. I fish a lot of species from panfish to trout and this works great for them all. Easy to change colors/actions in snap. I prefer the pink/medium action for teardrops and ratfinkee size jigs. Once you use them, you won't go back! I gave it 4 stars, because you do have to mount them yourself or pay someone to do it. But 5 stars for the actual spring.

 Absolutely love them!
Pros: Super sensitive, Interchangeable, Easy To Use, Functional
Cons: Cost
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I used to use spring bobbers on all of my rods. I saw this being discussed on a forum and how people are modifying their rods to use them. I figured I would try them and now all of my rods have them. I like the fact that you can change them without cutting your line as long as it is a swivel for jigging spoons and lures or small panfish jigs. I would definately tell people to do this to their existing rods so they don't have to shell out 50 dollars for a St Croix Elite.
 Best Indicator on the market
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Easy To Maintain, Functional
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: These indicators, which are available fully installed on the St. Croix Legend, are the best I've ever used. They do not freeze up at all, and with the choice between super light to heavy (I use the medium, the pink one), they show even the super light biters. I love the legend series, but I buy the indicators, buy the rod eyelet replacement that fits, and a rubber grommett, and I epoxy them to whatever rod I want to, it's much cheaper than the $50 legend rod, that has no reel. I'd never even consider using another indicator, as I've tried every one on the market.

 Best Spring Indicator
Pros: Functional
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: This spring is great because of the ability to adjust sensitivity by adujusting the length of the spring through the grommet. This allows you to match the action with the weight of the jig/lure.

 Best on the market
Pros: Durable, Functional, Easy To Maintain
Cons: Difficult To Use
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: The St Croix Super Finesse springs are the best constructed indicators on the market. If you own a Legend Ice rod changing the spring to accomodate different weight jigs is very easy. For panfishing I prefer the light spring. Any tap will move the spring down. If the fish just mouths the jig the spring will lift up. If you are going to purchase a spring indicator to put on a pole that does not have the built in grommet, you will have to rig something up.

Pros: Functional, Easy To Maintain, Durable, Easy To Use

Comments: I have used many spring bobber and the ones that st croix puts out are the best that I have ever used. No way you can miss a bite with these. Easy to rig up you rod for the setup if you dont have a st croix rod. Just use a #8 guide and a 1/8 inch groumet and have that wraped to you rod and you are all set.

Comments: I like this spring bobber because of it's adjustability and it doesn't freeze up as bad as some others.Works great on crappie and bluegills when the come up and take a jig. Can be adjusted to raise up on those kind of bites. I also put my own eye guide and grommet on existing rods.

Comments: Great little idea to add to a specific rod. I'm not sure if it works with any other type of rod though. I read other reviews before buying. I'm glad I bought the medium-heavy for those 12 inch perch. It shows the litest bite in 60' of water.

Comments: I have been using the St. Croix Spring indicator for the last couple of season's and for finesse vertical fishing there is no other product that compares. For ice fishing these indicators show those light biters very well and also these are very easy to setup and use.

 Great for light bites
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Easy To Maintain, Functional
Cons: Will catch minnows
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: This spring is made for the Legend Series by St. Croix. I guess you could rig it on a different rod but it works best on the Legend. My Legend rod came with the pink(medium) spring. It works perfect with small teardrop jigs for bluegill. To adjust the spring simply slide it in or out, very simple. For a jig with some weight to it I would recommend the heaviest spring. I caught a bluegill that was only two inches long and if I did not have the spring, such light bites would go without notice. I am going to try it on some walleyes this weekend at L. of the Woods.

Pros: Its made by St Croix
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: I purchased this(orange)indicator to use as a tip I broke off my favoite jigging pole. However after a flawless installation, a 1/16 jig head bent over the spring. My bad. Might try Medium Heavy. Great product, wrong use.
