St. Croix Legend Elite Fly Rod
We all know trout fishing is a precision business. A relentless test of equipment and ability. But in the end it’s those who keep it simple who set the bar. Nipper, forceps and a Legend Elite® are enough. These rods are an elegent combination of slim-profile ferrules and stunning cosmetics married to premium, high-modulus, high-strain SCV graphite blanks loaded with ART™ and IPC® technology. Legend Elites also feature SCVI graphite in the lower portion of the rod for added power and reduced weight. This year all Elites will feature our exciting new NSi (Nano Silica) resin developed by 3M™ (3M™ Matrix Resin™) as well. The result is enough space-age science and American handcraftsmanship to give you a four-piece rod that performs like a one-piece. Freshwater models are finished in a smooth Gallatin green, while the saltwater rods – featuring our max-power butt section for handling big fish and even bigger winds – are finished in a sweet Belize blue. Quite simply, brilliant.
