St. Croix Introduces New Legend Ultra Fly Rods
St.Croix Fishing Rods- Park Falls,WI – Following last season’s widely acclaimed redesign and reengineering of the Legend Ultra fly rod series, St.Croix introduces 14 new rods to its lineup for 2005. Already one of fly fishing’s most popular series of rods, the new generation of Legend Ultras are faster, smoother and stronger.
Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling technology and slim profile ferrules – top-of-the-line features integrated from St. Croix’s Legend Elite fly rods – now come standard on Ultra’s, offering anglers outstanding performance at a superb value.
“Last year we completely redesigned the very popular Legend Ultra fly series by adding IPC (Integrated Poly Curve) and ART (Advanced Reinforcing Technology) to the blanks.The added technology has taken hold, and anglers have responded enthusiastically,” says Jeff Schluter, St. Croix’s Vice President of Marketing.
