Old School is New Again with St. Croix's Legend Glass


Date: 7/16/16
Location: Orlando, FL
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: St. Croix Rods
Reviewer: Cal

If there's one thing that's been missing in St. Croix's extensive lineup of bass rods, it's a series of rods dedicated to moving baits. This top tier manufacturer addressed that oversight this year at ICAST in a big way. So big, in fact, that they won Best in Show Freshwater rod with their brand new Legend Glass sticks.


St. Croix takes home the ICAST Best in Show Freshwater Rod award for Legend Glass!


There are four models in this series. Shown here are three LGC711HM deep cranking sticks with the Fuji PSS-SD reel seat.


Legend Glass: Legend Glass sticks are made from S-Glass rolled with the company's IPC tooling technology. They are built with Fuji, K-Series tangle free guides featuring stainless steel frames with Alconite inserts. Hook keepers on each stick are made by Kigan. There are four models in the series ranging from 6'-10" in length through 7'-11". Three of the models (6'-10", 7'-2", 7'-4") feature Fuji's ECS reel seat while the 7'-11" stick is built with a Fuji PSS-SD palming seat.


Legend Glass rods will feature split rear grips made of cork and a very small cork foregrip.


Guides are Fuji K-Series Alconites with SS Frames.


Each Legend Glass series rod is backed by St. Croix's 15 year transferrable warranty. They were designed and are hand crafted in the company's Park Falls, Wisconsin factory and will retail for between $240 - $250 depending on the model.

Legend Glass will retail for between $240 - $250.

Bass X: Also new this year for St. Croix is a series of rods set to retail for between $100 - $110. The Bass X series is built from the company's SCII graphite using stainless steel framed, aluminum oxide guides and Fuji reel seats. There are fourteen (14) rods in the series and each were designed in the company's headquarters at Park Falls, Wisconsin and are handcrafted in the company's facility in Fresnillo, Mexico. Bass X Rods are backed by the company's 5-year warranty.

Bass X is St. Croix's new entry level stick coming in at a price point must below the Mojo series.

These sticks feature a split rear grip made of cork and a very small foregrip of EVA foam

The guides are an unspecified brand made with SS frames and aluminum oxide inserts.

Bass X is set to retail for between $100 - $110.

Thanks to David Schluter for showing us the new gear and congrats to all of St. Croix on another ICAST award!

Conclusion: Just when we thought the Legend series was already complete, St. Croix goes and sneaks in a set of four (4) glass cranking sticks and then runs away with an ICAST award to top it all off. These new cranking sticks are clean, retro, and we can't wait to get our hands on them! Kudos to St. Croix - keep up the fantastic designs and builds!
