US fishing rod manufacturer, St Croix, has unveiled a series of walleye ‘dream rods’.
The Legend Tournament Walleye Series includes 12 individually crafted, tactic-specific spinning rods plus a trolling/back bouncing tool.
The Park Falls, Wisconsin-based company, which launched the Eyecon Trolling Rods for walleye last year, says: “Legendary tournament pros fished with St Croix rod craftsmen and didn’t leave the boat until they came to a consensus – everything was just right.
“The walleye pros poured in decades of gritty and wise tournament experience – St Croix’s design and engineering team added the optimal blend of technology and art, conjuring up the pinnacle of walleye wands.
“Founded on re-engineered SCIV graphite blanks bolstered with 3M™ Matrix Resin, rod strength and sensitivity approach immaculate perfection, “ claims St Croix.
“Legend Tournament Walleye rods impeccably manage line, lures and surging fish, too, thanks to ingenious Fuji® K Series Tangle-Free Concept Guides, each one inlaid with Alconite® rings and polished frames to zip all line types through the guides like a greased eel.
“Split-grip super-grade cork handles provide the ultimate hand-to-rod relationship.”
Walleye legend, Ted Takasaki, adds: “The actions of the Legend Tournament Walleye rods are perfect. Every model feels like a dream, as if it was born to match its designated technique. Any time I’m riggin’ or deadstickin’ my 7’6” Legend ‘Slip-N-Rig’ (LTWS76MLXF) is an easy choice.
“It is incredibly versatile too – the extra length is ideal for flinging light jigs or crankbaits long distances from a boat. Love that rod – it’s a fish catcher!”
“And we absolutely nailed it with the ‘Bounce-N-Troll’ rod (LTWC70MHM). It’s the optimal balance of weight, perfect flex for dragging a bouncer and spinner, and plenty of power to land the monsters.”
