Park Falls, WI—St. Croix's all-new hyper-performance Legend Xtreme Inshore saltwater rods push the envelope for advanced performance and cutting-edge design. Built on blanks rolled from high-modulus/high-strain SCV graphite with super-high-modulus SCVI graphite in the lower section, the rods provide an ideal blend of maximum power and strength, increased sensitivity and reduced weight. The marine white series includes three 7-foot spinning models and one 7-foot casting rod.
The new Legend Xtreme Inshore rods are designed using St. Croix's proprietary Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling and Taper Enhancement Technology (TET) to produce continuous-curve tapers with improved actions and sensitivity. Each blank is strengthened with St. Croix's proprietary Fortified Resin System (FRS) which prevents micro-buckling by keeping carbon fibers in proper alignment to produce blanks that are 33% stronger than those built with standard resins and curing methods. All key stress points are further strengthened using Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART), an exotic carbon fiber material that adds a magnitude (10X) of strength with virtually no increase in blank diameter or weight.
The contemporary design is as eye-catching as it is functional. An all-white Xtreme-Skin handle repels water, dirt and fish slime—and cleans up easily while providing a comfortable, non-slip grip in both hot and cold weather. The handle trim pieces are machined by St. Croix and are corrosion proof. The rod blank features a distinctive gloss-white pearlescent finish, and a two piece Fuji® SK2™ reel seat has an exposed-blank design for enhanced sensitivity.
Each rod is fitted with Kigan Master Hand Zero Tangle guides with ultra-hard zirconia rings and ultra-light titanium frames for the ultimate protection against saltwater corrosion. The unique sloped, wide-leg design prevents line tangles with monofilament, fluorocarbon and super braid lines. All thread wraps are protected by two coats of Flex Coat slow-cure finish for exceptional durability.
The new Legend Xtreme Inshore rods are designed and handcrafted in Park Falls, Wisconsin and are protected by a 15-year transferable warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service. Retail prices range from $380-$390.
