Any reviews/thoughts on St. Croix Legend X Series???

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am thinking of replacing my broken Avid X with a St. Croix Legend X Series through the gold program. Since I am not able to find any reviews/thoughts/specs on the rods I am a little bit hesitant. 
Anybody?

THanks!
Cheers,
Seb.

If you can swing the money definitely. The blank utilized in the Legend X is far superior to the Avid X. I think you will be happy.

It’s a Legend Elite with split grip. Anything you read or find out about the current Legend Elite likely applies. Should be a great stick.

It has an sc5 blank arguably one of the best.  If you like split handles and small guides then it's a win for you.  I stick to the same blank in full handle.  The only thing that I cannot comment is ballance.  This is the one thing to find out about.  My sons avid-x is more tip heavy than any of my standard avids.

Yeah, I am looking for a longer Jig rod that is up there with the best in sensitivity and overall quality. Looking at the St. Croix Legend X Series Casting Rod 7'6" Med Hvy.
Is it fair to assume that the model is comparable with a NRX/ GLX / Megabass Destroyer in terms of quality and sensitivity?


Through the gold program the rod would come out to: 280 USD (+ shipping to st.croix).

Any reason to get the x over the regular?  If you are running a leader the standard would be better or if your far enough north to deal with ice.  My LE is a 70mhf and my favorite to date jig rod.  I do run a steez reel so that makes the rig very lite.  I am not going to split hairs about how much feel you get between the models listed but if your interested TT has a good review.  Only difference would be the handle if you get the X. http://www.tackletour.com/reviewstcroixlegendeliteec70mf.html

Just prefer a split handle for a bottom bait rod. Also think that they made the rod a tad lighter. I am a bit spoiled by a Helium 3 7'HxF that weighs around 3.6oz. 
I have tried the rod that you mentioned and it was really nice but it made me wait for the Legend X. 
I am planning to either pair it with my Daiwa Steez SV TWS, MGL, Smoke Tour S3 (prefer a light reel). 

Do you know where I could find the weights on the Legend X (st.croix website does not say)

Thanks!
