St Croix Legend Elite Fly Rod


St Croix fly:  The Legend Elite
By Neil Taylor

Another in a great series of rods by St Croix, the Legend Elite is a great one to consider.     I have had mine for years and it is a fantastic piece of equipment.

Every one of these rod choices, four pieces.   Lengths all also the same at 9 feet.   Line options 6 to 12, there are great choices for the guy who is going for light action versus going after something really big with more power.

“Maybe you fish in a beret. Maybe you don’t. But when you fish with a Legend Elite® fly rod, chances are your cast is a work of art. So is the rod for that matter – with its slim-profile ferrules and premium, high-modulus, high-strain SCV graphite blanks featuring ART™ and IPC® technology. Add in SCVI graphite in the lower portion of the rod for added power and reduced weight along with FRS (Fortified Resin System) for strength and durability, and they are every bit as functional as they are beautiful.”
