Great rod, very sensitive. Has good backbone. Guides are a little noisy when using braided line.

Awesome Rod

by happytweeter

I love this little rod. It is perfect for panfishing. The tip is ultra-light and I can feel every single little bite. I don't really like the color since finding a matching ultralite reel was nearly impossible, but that's something I can deal with. Very happy with this purchase.

Very nice rod!

I bought this rod from FishUSA this spring and it has been a fantastic rod! It excels at throwing small jigs far. I bought the 6'9UL and it is perfect for fishing 1/64-1/16 jigs. It will fish 1/8 just fine also, but the action is slowed a bit. This rod has quickly become my favorite panfish rod!

Another great St. Croix product

by Thrasher -

Like to use this as a noodle rod right over the side of boat or slow rolling a jig over the weeds. Tip is so fast you can see what is going on with your jig

Perch & Crappie Assassin!!

by GillPredator -

I now know why I shouldn't have bought two of these Rods! I'm Buying two more!! LOL Love the 6'9" UL, Just Love It! Casts smaller jigs great effortlessly. Can feel every little twitch and especially on the drop. Paired with My Shimano CI4 Stradic 1000 Reel its an unbelievable combo. I have a Shimano NASCI 1000 on the 7' light Rod. Wow!! Love this rod. GREAT Perch or Crappie Rig Combo. Great on jigs as well but this is staying as a live bait rig. I'm buying another pair of these rods. Will be selling some Quantum and Fenwick Rods!! LOL

St Croix 7' ultra light rod

by Fuzzy -

I haven't used it yet, but you cant go wrong with a St Croix. I like the other St Croix rod I have.

Noodle rod?

by Fishforeel -

Just received PFS70LXF 7' lite X-Fast. It shakes like a noodle. It reminds me 7' Ugly Stik GX2. The Shimano Sensilite ultra light is much stiffer than this light power x-fast rod. For me it is a moderate action rod. Overall good quality, wrong action rating.

Panfish Series - PFS70LXF

by AquaMan -

Bought this and the smallest Pflueger President XT reel for a week long fishing trip to Dale Hollow Reservoir, TN. I spooled with 6lb Nanofil. I also brought down my other higher series St. Croix rods. However, I used this panfish rod 99.9% of casts. I was able to land a 10lb sheephead, 8lb channel cat, countless smallmouth/largemouth bass up to 5lbs. It is a fantastic rod for the price. Going to purchase another as a backup and/or guest. Highly recommend.

Excellent Rod!!!!

by Big Red

The 7’ is one of my favorite rods that i own! Excels at casting light panfish jigs and is capable of handling some larger bonus fish. I would highly recommend this rod to any serious panfisherman.

St Croix 8ft pan fish rod

by jeff parsley

I replaced my broken pan fish rod with this St. Croix wow what a difference the weight and the action are far superior to those other so called pan fish rods out there. Thanks St. Croix and Fish USA for making an awesome product available.

Good rod

by Beefherder

Have only used the rod once, as it is late fall. Got the 7 foot rod. Used to a 5 1/2 rod. Flips the jig out there good. Takes getting used to on the length.

Love good fishing rods .

by Robert

I’d like to see one in the line up with more of a extra fast to fast action, in a light power to med light version. I do find them a bit off as far as the action is more moderate and slightly flimsy to me. But I do like them.
