Coming to life at the 2018 GEICO Bassmaster Classic, St. Croix’s new Legend Tournament Bass Dock Sniper fills the void where heavy lure are being used in tight quarters.
“Dock fishing is a strong winning pattern on any lake,” says Brian Snowden, the Bassmaster tournament pro whose career winnings are around the million-dollar mark. “But it takes a special rod to be able to make an accurate cast to any nook and cranny where a big bass might be hiding.
“St. Croix’s new Legend Tournament Dock Sniper has an excellent tip action that allows me to quietly place my lure where it needs to be, and its strong backbone gives me the ability to get a good hook set and then manoeuvre fish over and around cables and other obstacles that might interfere with landing any fish, let alone a big one.”
The Dock Sniper’s 7-foot length allows anglers to seamlessly skip lures long distances. Its heavy-power, fast-action blank is constructed of high-modulus/high-strain SCIV graphite with FRS. Combined with Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) mandrel technology and Advanced Reinforcing Technology™ (ART™), this USA-built blank delivers unparalleled sensitivity and strength.
“Anyone who has picked it up and deflected the tip of the Legend Tournament Bass Dock Sniper realises that it has the perfect feel,” says Dan Johnston, National Accounts Manager for St. Croix Rods.
“It’s a versatile rod that lets you present a variety of baits in all types of cover and can hit the spot in confined spaces. Heck, you can even tie up a spinnerbait and give it a long-distance cast.”
Designed for 14lb to 25lb test and 3/8 to 1½-ounce lures, the Dock Sniper joins the Legend Tournament Bass Series, and comes complete with Fuji K-Series Concept Tangle Free guides with Alconite rings – ideal for braid, monofilament and fluorocarbon lines. A Fuji PTS blank-touch reel seat and split-grip super-grade cork handle are light in weight and allow for superior sensitivity.
Designed and built in the USA, the Legend Tournament Bass Dock Sniper carries a 15-year transferable warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service. It retails for $290.
