St. Croix Mojo's Are Made In The U.S.A.!!!

Recommended Posts

You read that right!  Read this from another site that the Mojo's are made in the U.S. for now.  St Croix still building the plant to make the Mojo's in Mexico, so the Mojo rods right now are U.S. made.  If that's the case, than $100 for a Mojo rod which is a redesigned Premier is a great deal for an American made split-grip rod!

I picked up the 6'8" wacky spinning rod a couple weeks ago.

I dunno, I asked an ebay dealer who was selling them for $90 where they were made and he said Mexico. Should say for sure 1 way or the other on your spinning rod.

On the St Croix web site it says that the Mojos are hand crafted in North America and that the Premiers are hand crafted in the USA.  For what that is worth.

Ghost is correct.  Until late this year or early next year they are being made in ParkFalls.  As of right now it's the hottest rod selling for them, and are working 6 days a week to keep up production.

Any reason why the MOJO is selling so cheap? Is this St. Croix's Value line up?

Geographically speaking North America begins in the Zuchiate River on the Mexico/Guatemala border.

because it's not an expensive blank. It's the same as a premier just with a split grip.

I see.. I read on BPS review of people having problems with the reel seat on the spinning models. Anyone else have this problem? Here is what the review said:

Overall Rating:   2 out of 5  

be sure to put a reel on this rod first!, January 10, 2009

By jfbigbass from alabama  (read all my reviews)

"I've had major trouble with the spinning rod version of the mojo bass rod. it seems that every time i set the hook the reel seat comes unscrewed. I also have a friend thats experiencing these same problems due to the awkward positioning of the reel seat screw. Good rod, bad engineering!"

A drop of blue loctite would probably solve that problem and you'd still able to remove the reel if/when you felt like it.

I can concur on the seat slipping on the spinning rod, on the Mojo & Premier.  It has to do w/ how the seat screws in the back instead of the front.  I had a 7' Premier spinning last year & it was driving me crazy it would unscrew.  I brought it back cuz & got another 7' rod.  The Mojo does it too but not as bad, I just have to really tighten down.  I wrapped electrical tape under the reel seat screw so when it did start to loosen it would catch that & stay snug.

But then again I have not had a chance to take the Mojo spinning to the water & fish w/ it.

Yeh, I red about that problem with the mojo spinning rods too.  Glad I held off in getting one.  Gonna debate the spinning rod for a while now.

So is Park Falls Wi. so there is no need to change the website if they are just being made in the USA until the plant in Mexico is completed.

I am just curious to know if the ones being made in Park Falls now are marked as being made in the USA.

I have tried to contact St. Croix about this but have not received a response yet.

These are made with the same blanks as the Premiers and I have had several of the premiers over the years both spinning and casting and have no problems with them at all. For the price they are very good rods!!!!

I have been thinking about buying one of the Legend Tournament rods but I may have to try one of the Mojo's first to check out how I like the split grip, especially if I can get one that is made in the USA!!!

No, if you were to look where the serial number is on the other series rods, that's where they say made in USA. If I remember right, the Triumph series doesn't have anything denoting where it's made either.

As for the reel seat loosening, I use teflon plumber's tape to "build up" the threads so the "nut" has a little more to grab on to. The nice thing about the teflon tape is you can remove it whenever you want (even after years) and it won't leave residue - it doesn't have any adhesive, it sticks to itself.
