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.

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! January 19, 2009
Pool cue? 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! August 25, 2008
Best Rod Ever I Catfish in the summers and Muskie fish in the Spring and Fall. This rod is the best rod I have ever used. I may only be 13 but I have caught a lot of Giants. Get the 8 foot med heavy it is big enough for all methods of freshwater. January 12, 2008
St. Croix PM70MHF Muskie Rod I recently purchased the St.Croix PM70MHF Muskie rod. This rod is a very strong rod its medium heavy shaft is more what I would consider to be heavy. I do find that when casting large muskie lures the rod does give you alot of casting power however it will give you a work out jerking the lure around all day. I caught my first Muskie(small 34") on this rod and I was amazed by the power it had to handle this fish. I am pleased with this rod. July 11, 2006

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.
