Old St. Croix Avid vs New St. Croix Avid

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a new St. Croix Avid 7' MH Fast.  I had purchased the old one about 12 years ago. The old feels very stiff and the hump is more pronounced by the reel seat,  two things I did not like about the rod, but the new one is different in both aspects.  The rod is not as stiff, it casts somewhat better, and the hump is slightly smaller.  Other than that, its pretty much the same.  

 

My question is....  Did St.Croix update/change this rod somewhere along the way?

They're the same sciii material but I think they came out with a new resin since and may have played with wall thickness and/or diameter. It would be interesting to reach out to them directly with your question. I'm confident they'd be responsive.

I will try to contact them sometime in the future.
