Is this what you need when you buy St. Croix Premier 6ft MHF 1pc Casting Rod?
The St. Croix story has evolved over 70 years and this path has taken many different twists and turns. When Gordon Schluter returned to his northern Wisconsin home in 1977 to retrieve a struggling fishing rod company, he had one simple purpose- to create fishing rods that give anglers the upper hand. With a gritty determination, St. Croix built the most advanced fishing rod facility in the world and with it, a world-class brand that has earned the respect and admiration of anglers around the planet. This driving passion still propels St. Croix today. Operated by Gordon s sons, St. Croix continues to challenge itself to live up to his ideal.
St. Croix s R D department is the most advanced in the business. St. Croix has invested millions into the composite materials and manufacturing techniques. Over the years, the company has introduced many of the industry s biggest performance breakthroughs, and continues to look for ways to make the rods lighter, stronger, and more responsive.
St Croix rods provide performance options to all anglers. With rods for every application and technique, our complete collections offer choices in size, power and action, so you ll never need to compromise.
The Action of a rod is determined by where a rod flexes along the blank. Faster action rods flex mostly near the tip. Moderate action rods flex more near the middle of the blank. Slower action rods flex down into the butt section.
The Power of a rod refers to how much pressure it takes to flex the rod. Different rod powers are engineered to efficiently handle a certain range of lure weights and line sizes. To select a rod power that will perform best for you, simply narrow your choices to rods designed to cast the weight of lures and sizes of lines you ll fish with most often.
Developed exclusively by St. Croix, Integrated Poly Curve IPC tooling technology has rapidly become one of the engineering leader in rod making. Designed to eliminate all transitional points in the rod blank, IPC-engineered rods feature smoother actions, increased strength and greater sensitivity.
Advanced Reinforcing Technology ART is an exotic carbon fiber material that adds a magnitude 10X of strength with virtually no increase in blank diameter or weight. ART significantly improves the hoop strength of the blank by preventing it from deforming or ovaling under a severe load, such as a powerful hook set or fish battle. ART is also a critical part of our slim-profile ferrule design.
St. Croix once again breaks new ground in premium rod manufacturing technology with the development of a Fortified Resin System FRS , which combines a fortified super resin with new computer operated curing ovens that provide improved temperature and time management through all stages of the curing cycle. FRS prevents microbuckling by keeping the carbon fibers in proper alignment.
After several years of R D, St. Croix has perfected an innovative Taper Enhancement Technology TET that begins with precision-cut, curved blank patterns made possible by a state-of-the-art computerized pattern cutting machine. When combined with IPC-mandrels, these unique patterns create blanks with better actions and improved sensitivity. This pattern design and cutting technology is a dramatic departure from traditional straight-line patterns cut by hand.
We are fishing mainly in the water that s near us – ponds, lakes, rivers and streams found within a few miles of where we live. The fishing is always sweet, and there is never a shortage of opportunity or excitemen. St. Croix ensures you make the most of your outings with rods engineered for every angler, style and species.
Big water or backwater, saltwater fishing has something for everyone. Whether you are going for game fish or dialing-in your dinner, the pursuit promises an ocean full of unforgettable experiences. Complete line of surf, inshore and offshore rods give you the power and action required to land absolute monsters at any depth.
Whether moving, still, sweet or salt, the gravitaional pull to water is strong. With fly rod in hand, immerse yourself in the surrounding and explore the stretch that lies ahead with innovative and carefully crafted St.Croix fly rods.
As a true fisherman you say goodbye to thumb recognition on your fancy cell phone. A raw thumb is just a badge on honor around the lake. The same can be said of a Premier. 34 handcrafted casting rods, including crankbait and musky models, constructed with premium SCII graphite and top-grade components make a day on the water worth leaving a little skin behind.
