Legend X unifies St. Croix’s proprietary technologies into 2018’s most advanced fishing rod   

 

 

In the aviation world, super top-secret aircraft prototypes are often designated with an X. These experimental X-planes are designed and built at remote facilities that are clouded in mystery – maybe even a bit of legend. Some of them may become public knowledge while others are scrapped when engineers – never completely content with their creations – go back to the drawing board and start over. And just when the public assumes things have reached the pinnacle of technology, something new amazes us with logic-defying capabilities. What was once a doodle on a cocktail napkin, becomes a technological marvel.

 

 

 

 

The very same principles apply deep within St Croix’s state of the art basecamp (aka laboratory) in Park Falls, Wisconsin. The mad-scientists at St Croix design and redesign rods from the ground-up (…or, is it butt-up?), going from burning-the-midnight-oil concepts and sketches to the Eureka! moment when the smoke clears and the brainchild of a blank pops out of the oven.

 

The NEW for 2018 Legend X freshwater rod series from St Croix is not an experiment or a myth, it’s a reality. Simply put, the Legend X is an amalgamation of the finest materials, components and manufacturing techniques available…on this planet anyway. Much like those X-planes that zip across the sky at near space altitude, the Legend X is handcrafted by experts that make absolutely certain nothing is left to chance – the result, a perfect blend of performance, reliability and strikingly good looks.

St Croix’s VP of Brand Management Jeff Schluter has this to say about the remarkable rod: "St Croix created Legend X to satisfy demand for a super-premium rod series that featured all of our proprietary technologies (IPC®, ART™, FRS and TET) in a split-grip handle configuration. Our goal was to create a series incorporating these technologies along with pushing the aesthetics a bit for a unique look.”

 

“Legend X combines our hyper-performance SCVI and SCV graphite blank with the finest components available such as Fuji® Torzite ® titanium frame guides to provide anglers with unparalleled sensitivity and overall casting performance. Legend X increases angler control and ultimately fishing success. Because we could throw all our engineering tools at Legend X and equip it with the best of the best regarding the blanks and components, it was as much fun to design as it is to fish."
