Details

In our 2012 4-weight shootout, the St. Croix Imperial 8'6" #4 rod was clearly the best inexpensive 4-weight rod by a long margin. This rod has a nice medium-fast action that loaded perfectly with an SA Trout WF-4-F line. St. Croix really nailed the design on this rod. It performed exceptionally well for such an economical rod - and even better than many of the far more expensive rods in our shootout. This rod has good butt and mid-section power but a nice soft tip that allowed very good accuracy and delicate presentations at shorter distances. Performance at longer ranges was very good, and this Imperial is also a great rod for fishing nymphs and even smaller streamers.

This was our response to the Imperial in 2012 and after testing yet another crop of new rods the Imperial is still the top dog when it comes to bang for your buck. However, not everything stayed the same, we have changed a few things from the old package. The reel we've chosen is from Orvis, The Battenkill 2, a reel steeped in fly fishing history and heritage. We chose the Battenkill for the package because of its durability, great capacity, and outstanding value. You can chose between two different models, the click and pawl or the disk drag version for an extra $50.00. Both are great choices that will leave you smiling with a few extra bucks in your pocket.

We spool it up with 20 lb. backing and a WF4F Scientific Angler's Trout taper line. The package comes rigged and ready to fish and even includes a hand tied leader, all you need is a few flies.
