PARK FALLS, Wisc. (July, 2020) – St. Croix raises the bar in the travel rod category with the introduction of its new Avid Trek Series. Packed with power, exceptional sensitivity and a selection of models to cover virtually any fishing scenario, these three-piece travel sticks give anglers the upper hand wherever they go.
Avid Trek travel rods combine St. Croix’s Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) mandrel technology with premium, high-modulus SCIII carbon fiber for smooth power, improved casting accuracy and increased sensitivity. Featuring slim-profile ferrules, they sport Sea Guide Hero Hi-Grade guides with slim zirconia rings and SS316 stainless gun smoke frames. Spinning models have Fuji DPS reel seats with gun smoke hoods to ensure reels always stay tightly locked in place while a casting model has a Fuji ECS reel seat with gun smoke hood. All Avid Trek rods come with a Sea Guide hook-keeper, select-grade cork handle, and two coats of Flex Coat slow cure finish for a sharp, clean and polished appearance.
