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.
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

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.

Excellent rod choice
My first experience using this rod was on a guides boat. All of his combo's were Shimano reels on St Croix rods. Owning a Shimano Curado myself, I couldn't wait to see how it paired up with this rod.
My first impression about the 7-6 medium heavy rod (PM76MHF) was that it was rather thick at the handle end for a medium heavy rod, but it was incredibly light and well balanced. This was also the first time I had used a rod longer than 7-0.
As the day wore on, I found that it was almost effortless to cast larger, heavier lures with exceptional accuracy. The longer rod length also made figure 8's and working glider style baits much easier to do. Add to this the light weight of the blank, and you'll have yourself a much less tiresome day on the water slinging heavy musky lures around.
I bought one for myself soon after this trip, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I'm sure my next St Croix purchase will be the 8-0 MH rod, since a friend of mine owns one, and he's promised to let me borrow it for an entire day this spring. That should be just enough to prompt me to buy one!

When I first picked up my 7'0" MH 1-Piece (PM70MHF) I thought "wow, I way over bought..." A month later while fishing for Northerns in Ontario I finally understood. Although it did overpower (almost) every Walleye I pulled in, it was just perfect for the Pike! It felt too stiff with any lure under 1 ounce, but put on a 2 ounce and it pinpoints a cast like much smaller and thinner rods. I coupled it with a beefy Bass Pro Shops Nitro baitcaster and it was a match made in heaven. Thanks!

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?
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.
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.
