St. Croix Avid Fly Rod
St. Croix Avid 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. These are built with St. Croix's Solid Carbon (SC) graphite. This is an advanced, high-modulus graphite that delivers maximum durability and sensitivity. The SC 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.

Ratings & Reviews
Now I have exactly what I wanted
by Bill McGeehan -
My Avid Series 5 wt rod is made for medium to large creeks. The action and sensitivity are outstanding for fast reaction to strikes. I have better control while working trout than I had with my previous 4-5 wt rod. I also appreciate the time spent with the folks at FishUSA that allowed me to determine this was the correct rod for me.
Nice rod for small, brushy streams.
by Hack -
I have only been out with this rod once (it's snowing here now), but it seems like a great rod for fishing small, brushy streams in New Mexico.
American quality at its finest! Beatifully balanced and perfectly tapered. worth every penny. Its's so nice, I got one for my brother. [...] Great rod, [...]. Thank you.
Best fly rod on the market
by Older Brother
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.
Steal of a Rod
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.
