Hot Product Press: St. Croix Avid X

What is it?

St. Croix’s newest rod line, the Avid X.

What does it do?

The Avid X is an expansion on the Avid line, and adds top-notch touches, making already good rods even more effective and angler friendly. 

How do I use it?

There are 18 different rods actions to choose from (nine spinning and nine casting), so you’d be best served picking an action that suits the way you fish to give them an honest test run. We bet you’ll like the results. Rods run from a 6-6 medium action spinning rod that’ll finesse the lightest of worms and drop shots to a heavy 7-4 jig flipping machine.

What sets it apart?

The Avid X line is built with premium, high-modulus graphite blanks with Poly Curve technology, which lends the sticks incredible sensitivity, durability and light weight. Split grip, select-grade cork handles register every nibble and blade of grass. Also, the X line is made with Kigan micro guides and zirconia rings. Kigan’s micro-guide platform reduces weight while maintaining optimum line flow efficiency. The result? Longer, more accurate casts.
