St. Croix Rods Avid X Casting

The Avid X Casting Rods represent a new direction for St. Croix's popular Avid Series of fishing rods. This new series, dubbed Avid X, displays a more radical design with updated features and original stylings. St. Croix Rods developed this new series with high quality components and the same high modulus graphite SCIII graphite blanks with Integrated Poly Curve tooling technology used for their standard Avid lines. The result is a series of incredibly sensitive and light weight casting rods. Each Avid X Casting Rod features a lightweight, select grade cork split-grip handle, Fuji reel seats with gunsmoke hoods and an exclusive new hook-keeper designed to hold a variety of different hooks and lures while eliminating line wrapping issues.

St. Croix turned to Kigan Z micro-guides to reduce weight and focus casting energy in a more direct plane allowing for increased casting distance and accuracy. Z guides feature zirconia rings with gunsmoke frames and are positioned at the optimal height to make sure the line flows through the guides properly. The Avid X Series guides are expertly wrapped with nylon thread and then sealed with two coats of Flex Coat slow-cure finish. Micro guides have become increasingly popular over the past 5 years or so and continue to improve in design and engineering. Although touted as being superior to standard guides, it's honestly comes down to angler preference. Sure, there are benefits to be had from micro-guides, but some anglers find them to be too much work when fishing in cold weather where guides ice over. There are a number of positive attributes associated with micro-guides, so they are definitely worth a try.

Avid X Casting Rod Features:
  • Integrated Poly Curve® (IPC®) tooling technology.
  • Premium, high-modulus SCIII graphite.
  • Incredibly light, super sensitive and durable.
  • Slim-profile ferrules.
  • Kigan Z micro-guide platform reduces weight while maintaining proper stripper guide ring height for optimum line flow efficiency. Z guides feature slim, strong aluminum-oxide rings with gunsmoke frames.
  • Fuji® reel seat with gunsmoke hood(s).
  • Split-grip/select-grade cork handle.
  • Exclusive Kigan hook-keeper.
  • Two coats of Flex Coat slow-cure finish.
  • 15-year transferable warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service.
