Hello all,

 

I am looking at the St. Croix Legend Elite And Legend X. I recently posted a thread about “High End Rods” And had a lot of good comments on the Megabass Daemos as well as a couple other rod brands. Now I am looking at the legend Elite And Legend X.

There the same blank.  Split grips with smaller guide vs full handle and standard guides.  This is the only difference.  I go full handle.  Amazing jig rods.

At that price point I call DVT to get a custom rod built for me.

You cannot build a custom for the same price as a factory rod .  If you dont know exactly what you want the factory rods hold way better value for trade or resale to try again.  I am all about customs but there needs to be a reason.  For me its handle length...

Handle length, attention to detail, customization between color, and the actual blank you want. I also have a rod that I believe personally is on par with the NRX slightly below it at best in terms of sensitivity and weight in my MHX pro elite. I enjoy it thoroughly. cost me two hundred less than the cheapest NRX.

So you can use cheaper component's and try and beat the factory but that's like trying to beat an index with a mutual fund.  It can be accomplished but not successful very often.  I think the factory gides are overkill and ti/sic are good enough.  If your downgrading to Alconite then there is real savings.  Some nrx rods have recoils and still sell for the same price.  To me that's a ripoff.  A custom may or may not have a warranty but a factory rod is guaranteed.
