Would love to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly experiences from any of you that own or have owned St Croix rods. Thanks!

I have a Heavy fast Mojo which a 200 lb adult male could use to pole vault. It also takes 3 MPH off your boat while stored.

I think that there are a lot of individual differences that make a particular rod brand or rod action work well for one person and maybe not so well for another. That being said I had the pleasure of using my son's St Croix Legend spinnerbait rod. I was throwing a 5/8 or 3/4 oz Nichols double willow and it was effortless and spot on accurate for me. He likes it too. I just picked it up and the feel was amazing. Never had that experience with a rod before.

I have four graphite cranking rods and two flipping sticks. I love them and have never had one break.

I have 3 Mojo Bass rods. I believe they are pretty good for the price point.


GOD is good!

I bought several used off of a pro staffer. Some of the best rods I ever used . They have good guides and there warranty is excellent. I think now they warranty for ten years .

I have six St Croix casting rods and love them. I have the Avid and Premier series. Only complaint I have is the Avid series seems to be a little heavier in action than shown but in all a great rod.

I have probably 15 St. Croix's ranging from a Mojo Bass cranking rod with mostly Tourney Legends(blue) and even some Tourney Legend Extremes(green). From spinning to baitcasters but mostly baitcasters. I have been really impressed with the rods and its nice to have enough of them to actually "match" lures with appropriate types/actions. Their labeling of the rod seems to "fit" quite well. For ex their 7' Medium crankbait rod labeled "small cranker" handles squarebills and bandit 200s extremely well and will even throw the 2.5 on braid nicely. I have 2 of them on the deck at all times as I like to throw cranks!

As to "complaint/issues" I would say I have with them-
1. on the upper guides (last 5 or so) they use a single foot guide that can bend out and break loose from the epoxy rather easily. Now granted I don't like sticking my rod tip down to free the baits (especially on a $260 rod!) but I've had 2 different guides come off doing that.
2. on the reel seat the top part doesn't have a lot of epoxy holding it down. After taking the reel off and on a few times and tightening it rather snug you'll start to see some cracking of the epoxy. I had a rod repair guy here locally replace a reel seat for me and he said all they needed was to add about 2xs what they did and it would have been fine.

Otherwise I've been extremely happy with the rods. They feel good(I do prefer the cork feel on the Legend Tourneys over the Extremes) and I like knowing that I have my rods matched to their respective baits.

side note- if you do have to send a rod in for repair they are really quick to take care of things. I had a rod break about a foot down and sent it back and they replaced it with no issues. I do like the option when sending back to pay a little extra and upgrade to the next higher model!
