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.

A blast to fish with As a shore fisherman, this has been my favorite rod for years. It's just a super versatile , Once I had no problem landing 5-6 lbs. large mouth with 6lbs. test from my buddies boat out of Clear Lake, though that's not what I mainly fish for. The light power/fast action rod I think is perfect for accurate casting and works great for moderately powered hook sets, but its not so stiff that you can't detect small strikes and use it's "whipy-ness" to make pin-point casts, which is perfect for me when I'm aiming for small trout holes under fallen branches and such. Recently my rod tip broke in the back of my truck, the reps at St. Croix told me I can get another for 30 something dollars, which I'll definitely be doing. September 6, 2012
handle I bought an ultra-light to fish just 1 specific lake for 3 days this yr. and it performed perfectly. I didn't like the handle, though I knew going in it would probably be an issue. Finely finished high quality cork that my hand hardly touched in use. I dropped a star because they wouldn't let me drop a fraction and despite the handle found this rod a pleasure to fish. Light, strong, and with an action that was as advertised. September 5, 2012
verdict still out paired with a Pflueger 6900 series reel this rod seems to be a little tip heavy, going to try with different reel and see if that helps the balance August 21, 2012
St Croix sweetness I was going on a family vacation and wanted a higher end rod that could deliver some panfish fun with the kids...but versatile enough to step up the food chain, if needed. I went for the 6' light action one piece...and WOW. I paired it with a Pfleuger Supreme XT reel and some Berkley Fireline and I have never experienced a smoother, higher performing rod (I also have GLoomis with a Shimano Stradic....so I have some decent gear). The sensitivity and feedback were intergalactic....needless to say, I have never felt so good about a rod purchase. Bravo, St Croix. August 14, 2012

Staff Answer
A: 
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.

A: 
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.

A: 
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.

A: 
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.

A: 
I am replacing mine with CarbonLites and Shimano rods, so I would not buy a St Croix, I just do not think they are as sensitive, and they seem to want to drag customers through an obstacle course from what I hear if you need warranty work these days.

I am going to assume you are casting, so the longer the pole, the longer the cast tends to be. I'd go with the St Croix 6'6" PS66MF2 or the 7' PS70MF2 if I was going to get a St Croix.

In the Shimano I'd get a 6'6" Compre Mdl. # CPS-66M2B

In the Bass Pro Shops Carbonlite I would go with the CL66MSF though it is not 2 piece so it may not work at all for you. They do have a 9' Medium Light which you likely could get away with, but I suspect that would be far too long for your use.

If I could use a one piece I'd go with the CarbonLite if not the Shimano Compre, I just do not think the St. Croix is in the same league, but you know about opinions! I do have a 30 year old St Croix UL rod that I love, but the new stuff, not so much. I'd also consider Fenwick and Falcon if you could find someone local who carries them so you could check them out in person The Falcon BooCoos (sp?) are nice, but I prefer the CarbonLites and the Shimano Compe rods ever so slightly.

A: 
I would use the 38-152-646-00.

I have 2 of these rods. The 6'6 length is best for distance and mobility. I like the lighter rods and this holds 4-10 pound line rated for lures 1/8 - 1/2 ounce.

A: 
I have the Sustain reel and just bought my third St. Croix rod. Both are excellent quality and are built to last. I have used other reels but made the investment 5 years ago buying the Sustain and a Shimano Stella. Both are solid reels and will hold up for many years to come.
The cheaper reels bought previously only lasted a few years. You can really tell the difference in the drag and smoothness of the extra bearings

A: 
I would go with a 2500. A 1500 might work but they don't hold a lot of line. I have a 4000 on my 6.5 ML rod and it is too big for the rod.

A: 
For bass, I use 3000 series reels for Fluorocarbon and 2500 for mono or braid. The bigger spool handles the stiffer Fluorocarbon line a little better, but I haven't had any major problems using a 2500 for any type of line.

A: 
The 3000 spooled with either 8 or 10lb test you get 2 spools.The drag is super smooth also super strong! I mainly use the Saros for Smallmouth bass but have used for Northern Pike and Walleyes and their performance has been exceptional!

A: 
The best match would be either item number 38-350-988-00 (SAR3000F) or 38-350-986-00 (SAR2500F). The rod with either reel would make a good set-up.
