St.Croix Legend Tournament Walleye Casting Spinning Rods
Fishing Gear - Designed for every possible walleye fishing application, St. Croix introduces its new casting and spinning rod series: Legend Tournament Walleye. Featuring 11 models of technique-specific high-performance rods, each model is labeled for today’s most popular walleye lures and techniques, from vertical jigging to Lindy Rigs.
“Legend Tournament Walleye rods are designed and built to deliver the performance that today’s discerning walleye anglers demand,” says Jeff Schluter, St. Croix’s Vice President of Marketing. “They are exceptionally sensitive, smooth and strong thanks to IPC (Integrated Poly Curve) and Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART).”
The complete Legend Tournament Walleye lineup includes: Finesse Jig,Vertical Jig, Jig-N-Rig, River Jig, Lindy Rig, Shallow Cranker, Deep Cranker, Live Bait Rig, Slip Stick, Light Bouncer and Heavy Bouncer.
Legend Tournament Walleye rods, handcrafted in Park Falls,Wisconsin, feature highly refined SCIV graphite blanks that incorporate St. Croix’s exclusive Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling technology and Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART). IPC-engineered mandrels create a superior blank by providing a more uniform wall thickness compared to traditional compound tapered mandrels – eliminating all transitional points of weakness on the blank.The IPC mandrel’s continuous taper increases blank smoothness, because there are no drastic taper changes.
ART is St. Croix’s proprietary design for strengthening the rod blank without increasing weight or diameter. ART features a super-thin layer of exotic, unidirectional carbon fibers wrapped around the blank, instead of along the blank like the rest of the fibers.These unidirectional fibers increase the hoop strength of the blank by preventing it from deforming or “ovaling” under a severe load such as a powerful hook-set.ART increases a blank’s ability to resist ovaling.This technology also adds crush protection from accidents, such as stepping on the rod.
Legend Tournament Walleye casting and spinning rods feature cobalt blue metallic blanks with matching blue thread and satin silver metallic trim wraps.Additional features include: Fuji Alconite Concept Guide System with chrome frames, super-grade cork handles, Fuji ECS reel seats/frosted silver hood on casting models, Fuji DPS reel seats/frosted silver hoods on spinning models and machined-aluminum wind checks matched to the hood color. Retail from $190 - $220, most models at $200.
