NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL !!!!!!!!!!
Very Dissatisfied with casting performance of this rod. Way too many guides and way too small. This doesn't allow the line to feed as efficiently as others half it's price. When you take the same reel and line on an Ugly Stick and outcast it, then you've got a problem. St. Croix has a problem. NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL AND WON"T BE BUYING ANOTHER. Shame too ,considering I am a part time guide who Trout fishes roughly 90 days a year.
Happy St. Croix Day

Its been awhile since I have used a spinning rod. Was/am heavy into fly fishing. Wow.....have spinning rods changed since I last used one and St. Croix, if not the best, has to be one of the best. The rod is finished as well as any of my expensive fly rods, has great sensitivity and with 4 lb. test throws small size spinning lures farther than I would have imagined. Very pleased!
Fantastic trout rods.
I own this rod in the 5’4”, 6’4” and 7’ versions. They are used for small streams and tail water fishing with light spinners spoons primarily. They are light and sensitive. Very good back bone and I love how the blank is exposed above the reel seat. Landed a 16.5 inch Rainbow on the 5’4” this spring. The rod preformed like a champ. Took a 19” Brownie whith the 7’ last fall and and 21” Rainbow this June and the rod was perfect. Honestly if I had any negative things to say as bad as it would be is, the slim handle is odd at first and I really wish the something 5’9” or shorter with mod or mod/fast action. But that as bad as it gets. These rods are outstanding trout rods. Reasonable prices for the quality and they perform well. I highly recommend the St. Croix Trout series rods. I use Pflueger President XT reals and P-Line Halo 4-6 pound line and for me they are the perfect combination.
FishUSA is also great to deal with. 5-6 orders each year and they have never disappointed.
