St. Croix Rods Legend Elite Salmon/Steelhead

St. Croix Legend Elite Salmon/Steelhead Rods is a series of two piece casting and spinning rods specifically designed for salmon and steelhead fishing applications. St. Croix has overhauled their flagship freshwater series with new blank technologies and premium new components. The all-new Legend Elite Salmon/Steelhead series now includes 19 models with specialized lengths, actions and tapers ideally suited for salmon and steelhead – all with dramatically improved balance and unprecedented sensitivity.

Legend Elite blanks are engineered with St. Croix’s exclusive Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling technology and their new Taper Enhancement Technology (TET) that provides unique, computer designed-and-cut patterns for improved actions and increased sensitivity. They’re built with high-modulus/high-strain SCV graphite with carbon-matte scrim and reinforced with super high-modulus SCVI graphite for added power and reduced weight. Both graphite materials utilize St. Croix’s Fortified Resin System (FRS), which combines a fortified super resin with computer operated curing ovens that provide improved temperature and time management through all stages of the blank curing cycle. Blanks manufactured with FRS are up to 33% stronger than those built with standard resins and curing methods. They are further enhanced with Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART) at strategic locations along each blank for added strength with virtually no additional weight. Two-piece models feature ART-reinforced slim-profile ferrules.

The new, advanced components include Fuji Torzite guides with solid-titanium frames for unrivalled, 100% corrosion-proof performance. Torzite is the first ceramic created specifically for fishing rod guides, and it is stronger, lighter and five times smoother than Fuji SiC, the industry's previous gold standard. Spinning rods feature Fuji TVS blank-touch reel seats with built-in hood, and casting rods feature Fuji PTS blank-touch reel seats with built-in hood. Musky rods sport Fuji PLS-LD palming reel seats with shiny grey hood. All models include anodized, machined-aluminum wind checks, super-grade cork handles (split-grip handles on musky models) and exclusive Kigan titanium hook-keepers. Thread wraps are protected by two coats of Flex Coat slow-cure finish. The new Legend Elites are designed and handcrafted in Park Falls, Wisconsin, come with a protective rod sack and a 15-year transferable warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service.

The St. Croix Legend Elite Salmon/Steelhead Rods include a total of 19 models: 11 Spinning and 8 Casting. All rods are two-pieces. Please see the chart below for rod specs.
