Legend Xtreme Spinning Rods are newly designed for 2013 and definitely worth a look. You may be asking how could they get any better, but somehow the folks at St. Croix figured out a way! We could start throwing a bunch of technical terms out there trying to dazzle you (and sometimes we do) but let's just start by saying these rods are awesome! You will immediatley notice how light and balanced they are and when you get it on the water the senitivity is basically insane. Along with the well known IPC and ART technologies that ST. Croix uses, these rods also have a new feature called Taper Enhancement Tecnology or TET. This provides a curved pattern on the blank so you will get increased sensitivity and improved actions. How about a blank with super high modulus graphite, along with carbon matte scrim, then re-inforced with a super high modulus graphite. Outfitted with Fuji K-R Concept guides that handle braid, mono and fluroucarbon with ease. These tangle free guides contain a sloped frame and ring which sheds tangles before they become a problem. One of the most unique features is the all new handle design called Xtreme Skin. This material is super easy to keep clean and it dries very fast. What you'll really love however is that all day fishing comfort and casting efficiency without sacraficing sensitivity at all. Included is a rod sack and lifetime warranty so now is the time to with the program and try out a St. Croix Legend Xtreme!
