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.

  • Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling technology
  • Precision-taper solid carbon (SC material) blank provides superior performance
  • Black anodized, super-finesse, high-tension stainless steel indicator
  • Fully adjustable and interchangeable spring indicator system
  • Comfortable secure-lock reel seat with EVA trim
  • Pac Bay Minima stainless steel guides with black anodized frames and rings
  • Manufacturer's one-year limited warranty

The St. Croix Avid Fly Rod is made in the U.S.A.
