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 will handle like a custom stick. Advanced IPC Integrated Poly Curve® technology eliminates "dead zones" in the blank; you'll find the casts uniformly 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.
St. Croix Premier Series Spinning Rod
I definitely recommend this rod to everyone. Being in a wheelchair, a rod with strength, but with plenty of sensitivity is what I was looking for. The St. Croix Premier has plenty of both. Very reasonably priced as well. Since my arm strength isn't as much as the average Joe, the light weight and well balanced Premier rod is so easy to get a great hook set. I don't miss too many bass like I used to. You definitely can't go wrong by choosing a St. Croix, they set the bar pretty high!!!!!!!!!

I've always used falcons, but i decided to try the st. croix brand and all i can say is wow. Very sensitive and lighter than what im use to. I fish for crappie with 7-7'6' spinning rods, i pitch little 32 jigs on 4 lb. line and these rods are the best ive ever used. couldnt tell the difference between the 200+ dollar ones and these so i bought two. he he dont tell my wife!

I have two St Croix rods and they are the best. One of them is a UL and it is great for crappie and bluegill. I have never had to question the durability of these rods. I have caught many fish on these including a few walleye and even a seven lb. blue catfish. To me these rods are well worth the money. They are my #1 choice of rods.

This 6' solid St Croix is by far the best spinning rod I have ever purchased. Closest competitor broke on me two weeks ago, on a 3 lb. bass. Hammered with it last weekend. Get one!!!!

My first PS70HF2 (2 piece) was shipped to the store in a heavy cardboard tube, and the second was shipped to my house in the same style tube. You could use the shipping tube, if you put padding in each end. When shipped, one end of the plastic bag containing the rod is taped to one end of the tube to prevent it from bouncing back and forth in the tube.
What's are the differences and benefits in performance between the 6'6'' St. Croix Premier Ultra Light and the 6'9'' St. Croix Panfish (other than the 3 inches)? I am looking for a light tackle outfit to catch some smaller sized LMB and panfish.
well the extra length will give you greater distance and accuracy in casting it will also improve sensitivity and give you a little more leverage over fish. also the panfish series is a combination of the scii graphite and sciv making it more sensitive and has pack bay minima guides which reduce weight and increase casting distance as well.
I have several of the Premier rods and I think they are superior to the Panfish. It does weigh an ounce more but I prefer the guides on the Premier over the Panfish. The rods are basically the same blanks. The extra length will help if you cast really light lures or cast into the wind. I would suggest you look at the Falcon Bucoo rods also. The are my current favorite in light action rods.
Medium Heavy - Typically used for larger fish or used when casting larger baits
Short, stout rods are used mostly for trolling for big game fish. Longer rods are designed for longer casting situations such as surf fishing. The most important thing, is to get equipment that is best suited for the type of fishing that you plan on doing.
I am looking to buy a new rod and can't decide between the 2. I'm looking to use it for texas rigged worms, with a 1/32 bullet sinker. I like using 7 ft. rods. Also, which weight would you go, M or MH. Thanks for the help.
i like the premier, the mojo is ok, but in not one for rods made in other countries, it seems on the "cheaper" side of quality and performence, to me my premiers and tried and true and tested and proven atleast 18 days a month, as for weight, M or MH? well that depends what your after, for small mouth on the rocks I'd go with the M for largemount near pads timble and debris id go with the MH being you like the lighter weight id go with the M its a bit more on the sensitive side and easyer to handle lighter lures I use a MH for 1/4oz bullets and up. I'm a river fisherman as well, so im constantly dealing with the current, and sometimes a MH rod makes it a bit more easyer to deal with.
I would go with the St. Croix. I own one of these rods and love the sensitivity. I would actually go a little lighter than medium action. The St. Croix is a durable rod and will not break easily. I have landed multiple 7lb+ bass with my light. I always recommend the lighter action for a more exciting fight.
Hello, I have the 7 ft mh rod and I enjoy fishing it with a swim bait. To achieve the type of sensitivity you are looking for I would go with something a little lighter. I have not had the chance to review the, M, but it may be your best bet. Now I do fish mine TexRig with a worm and many other ways and I enjoy it. But I am considering buying other lighter rods for the best advantage.
Medium action, I would say fast tip. As for the rod brand, that depends upon your wallet. I tend to use Shimano Crucials, Bass Pro Shops CarbonLite if I want to spend a lot, and Berkley Cherrywood if I do not. The Cherrywood, for the money, is the best bang for the buck, it is VERY sensitive, and very light. I know some say they have broken them, so if you are used to say a Shakespeare Ugly Stick, which takes insane punishment, than you may not be happy with the Cherrywood. I hear that Fenwicks and Falcons are also very good. I have been replacing my St. Croix rods with Shimanos and CarbonLites as I am just not that impressed with them. I have a 30 year old St Croix UL rod that is really sweet but I am cool to their newer offerings and rumors about paying big bucks to get them to honor their warranties. If I had to pick one, I'd look at a medium power fast action Bass Pro Shop CarbonLite. Hope this helps.
