Park Falls, WI--St. Croix’s innovative new Legend X fly rods combine an exciting blend of graphite fibers with a revolutionary new handle and tactical look. Designed specifically for fishing larger warm-water species like muskie, pike and bass, the new rods are built on blanks rolled with a multi-dynamic blend of four carbon fiber materials which deliver exceptional power for casting oversized flies and enhanced strength for fighting big fish. With super-high-modulus SCVI graphite in the lower sections (for maximum power), premium SCII graphite in the tip section, and high-modulus/high-strain SCV graphite throughout, the remarkable new Legend X rods achieve the perfect balance of light weight, power and strength -- with an easy-casting action.
The Legend X blanks are manufactured using St. Croix's proprietary Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling to produce continuous-curve tapers, and are strengthened with St. Croix's new Fortified Resin System (FRS) which prevents micro-buckling by keeping carbon fibers in proper alignment to produce blanks that are 33 percent stronger than those built with standard resins and curing methods. Finally, all key stress points are further strengthened using Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART). This exotic carbon fiber material adds a magnitude (10X) of strength with virtually no increase in blank diameter or weight. ART is also a critical part of the Legend X slim-profile ferrule design.
St. Croix’s innovative Xtreme-Skin handle provides an exceptionally comfortable, positive grip that is manufactured by St. Croix. This unyielding handle provides rigidity for improved casting power plus it’s extremely durable, easy-to-clean and more sensitive than cork. An attractive matte-black, hard-anodized, machined aluminum reel seat is fitted with an Xtreme-Skin fighting butt with an EVA foam cap for fish-fighting comfort. The rods are fitted with Fuji K Series Tangle-Free stripper guides featuring Alconite rings and crush-proof REC Recoil® snake guides. All thread wraps are protected by two coats of Flex Coat slow-cure finish for exceptional durability. Each rod comes in a rugged rod case with carrying handle and divided polypropylene liner.
With a retail price range of $480-$490, the new Legend X fly rods are designed and handcrafted in Park Falls, Wisconsin, and are protected by a 15-year transferable warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service.
