This is where most anglers get their first taste of St. Croix quality. The Premier is an affordable series, but the quick, precise tapers, lightweight SCII graphite blanks, and aluminum oxide guides ensure that each rod handles like a custom stick. Advanced IPC Integrated Poly Curve® technology eliminates ''dead zones'' in the blank; you'll find the casts crisp and clean, and the actions finely tuned. Fitted with genuine Fuji® graphite reel seats and select-grade cork handles for supreme sensitivity and easy handling. And now they're even lighter, faster, and stronger than ever! Made in USA.

Action:
M = Medium
MH = Medium Heavy
H = Heavy
XH = Extra Heavy
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rod!! Great quality rod as expected. Perfect for big pike and muskies. Lightweight but strong for throwing those big baits. May 12, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rod for money The Musky Premiers are great rods fpr the money much better than the Pete Maina series or Shimano Compre's. I have a good number of them and St Croix knows how to make musky rods for Musky fisherman. January 10, 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by ok I'm from Wisconsin but i am not a fan of this rod triumph,mojo,and premier rods are a bit on the cheap side but the quality is sub par August 1, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing rod This rod is great for a wide range of fish. I first bought this for my shimano calcutta reel for musky, but I have come to use this for big catfish, offshore, and for tarpon. This rod can handle anything and it has a great proce tag for such a versitile rod. This is at least 5 rods in one. Tis rod can stand up to big fish and is my favorite big game rod. July 20, 2009

A: 
I have a 6'6" medium heavy and a 7' medium heavy that I use for musky fishing up on Lake of the Woods in Canada. It's a good size for the double cowgirls and I've even threw a Supermodel a few times.

Hi, a long rod is key for casting and controlling these big baits. Go with an 8- to 8 1/2-foot, heavy power, and fast-action rod. Thank you!

Good for big catfish?

Details: 
I currently use a BPS 10 ft. Catmaxx. Looking to upgrade to St. Croix but from what I understand they discontinued their catfish rods some time ago. Would the Musky rod work for wrestling in the 50+ lb. catfish?

A: 
Here's a story....we were musky fishing when my friend foul-hooked a 50+ pound carp with the 6" jerkbait he was throwing. The carp fought like heck to get away but he got it in with no problems.

The rod he was using was the 7-0 med heavy Premier Musky rod. The rod worked flawlessly, the net, not so much!

Bottom line, these are great rods for big fish.

A: 
Yes.

There are many available catfish rods, but musky rods fit the bill nicely for the larger cats. A St. Croix Premier musky rod has the necessary backbone and shock absorption for this application.

I would prefer a staff answer, but if anyone else knows, it would be helpful. Can I use a rod designed for
2-6 ounce lures for lures that weigh more or less than that? I wasn't sure how ell that would work. Thanks.

A: 
the lure weight recommendations are a general guideline from the mfr. but a much lighter lure would not properly load the rod and therfore require much more casting effort. conversely a heavier lure tends to overload the rod result in shorter casting distance and exaggerated rod bending (not to mention being hard on the rod). all that said the mfr. recommendations are based on the spine of the blank and tend to vary wildly from make to make. many a medium/heavy rod rated for 1.5 oz is grunting to handle that size of spoon if you're really trying to pitch it out there. St. Croix is a higher end made in usa brand and i trust their recommendations. you may find more info on their site as well. just my 2 cents but unless you have a chance to handle the rod you'll have to rely on the mfr. recommendations. i have found the longer rods to be easier to load and more forgiving on the heavier end so you will get more leeway from a longer rod IMO.

Best reel for this rod?

Details: 
I looked at the 8'6" heavy model in the store, but a lot of muskie reels looked a bit small on it. I'm looking for a relatively fast reel to use for musky.
