We’re all human. We have desires. Needs. And if ogling over the latest selection of St. Croix beauties puts the curl in your cast, so to speak, well that’s just fine. Especially when the page turns to our Legend Elite® fly rods. A seductive combination of slim-profile ferrules and stunning cosmetics matched with premium, high-modulus, high-strain SCV graphite blanks loaded with ART™ and IPC® technology. Legend Elites also feature SCVI graphite in the lower portion of the rod for added power and reduced weight. All this, and NSi (Nano Silica) resin technology, as well. The result is enough space-age science and American handcraftsmanship to give you a four-piece rod that performs like a one-piece. Freshwater models are finished in a smooth Gallatin green, while the saltwater rods – featuring our max-power butt section for handling big fish and even bigger winds – are finished in a sweet Belize blue.
