In-Depth Legend Tournament Bass Material with St. Croix Engineer

Wed, March 16, 2022

At the 2022 Bassmaster Classic, we caught up with Bassmaster Elite angler and St. Croix pro Bob Downey as he introduces us to Gavin Falk, engineering supervisor at St. Croix Rods, to talk about what sets the new Legend Tournament Bass series of rods apart from the competition. What makes these rods special is the proprietary blank technology used by St. Croix, where multiple levels of SC-graphite and S-Glass materials deliver the best possible rods and industry-leading composite designs. The result is a lighter rod with a thinner diameter and decreased recovery time, allowing for increased feel, better actions, and more accurate, crisp casting. This reduction in weight is key to moving baits, such as bladed jigs, crankbaits, and spinnerbait where any reduction in weight results in longer-lasting comfort for all-day-long fishability.
