The Premier is still made in the US. The Triumph (which used to be made in China) and the Mojo are built in Mexico.

Avid was nice, but I wasn't fond of the handle (power hump). I do like the shimano crucials though, you can find them around $150

thanks guys! thats great to hear about the st croix! i was dissapointed when i thaught i read that all are made in mexico now.

so far i really like the

castaway

st croix

and a couple others

for the castaway, what is the difference in the hg40 series, skeleton series, standard series and the xp3 series?

for just fishing pods where i will use every type of bait from frogs, crankbaits or worms, what would be the best?

thanks!

GOD BLESS

Luke

St. Croix Avid would be my pick.  They are a terrific rod and the best value of any rod I've owned in that price range.

X2 I also have the mojo, and they are both great just 5yr warranty compare to lifetime. The mojo is a lil heavier but still has st. croix service! 8-)

No Shimano Crucial rod? All of them are good rods, but Crucials are phenomenal rods, not be over looked since they are not that popular.
