Park Falls, Wis. – It’s a busy time for everyone at St. Croix, from the rod designers to the 32 sets of artisans’ hands on the production line who carefully manage the quality and quantity of all the rods that leave the factory.
Looking back to 2018, everyone worked diligently toward ICAST 2018 to launch a massive number of new products that cater to the needs of anglers across the globe. The result of the countless hours and dedication? St. Croix earned an unprecedented three ICAST Best of Show product awards including the Legend Glass Spinning winning Best of Show in Freshwater Fishing Rods.
Now for the news so many have been waiting for—both trade and end users: These new rod families are now available at St. Croix dealers across the fishing industry landscape.
Building on the success St. Croix’s ICAST 2016 award-winning Legend Glass series, this past July St. Croix introduced a new 7-foot, 2-inch medium power, moderate action spinning model (LGS72MM) that puts the power to launch small to midsized hardbaits. The newest Legend Glass model is the perfect partner for windy days or situations that call for lighter baits delivered with both distance and accuracy. An open water specialist, the LGS72MM is designed to handle small-to-medium crankbaits, including square bills and similarly sized bladed jigs, and excels with midrange, standard lip crankbaits that dive to depths of 16 feet.
Legend Glass spinning incorporates Fuji K-Series tangle-free guides with Alconite rings and Corrosion Control (CC) matte finish frames that are ideal for all line types. The new spinning rod features a Fuji DPS reel seat with frosted silver hood matched to a split-grip/super-grade cork handle and Kigan hook-keeper. Legend Glass rods feature a 15-year transferable warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service. Retail on the new LGS72MM is $260.
