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.
Action: L = Light ML = Medium/Light M = Medium MH = Medium Heavy H = Heavy

Rated 5 out of 5 by teng excellent rod overall
i have a 7' M-F paired with a curado e201. good sensitivity, i could feel my 1/4oz jig bouncing on the rocky bottom and able to distinguish a snag from a bite compared to one of my cheaper rod you don't even notice your touching the bottom until it snags. durable as well. i dont baby my rods and this rod has hold up pretty well. although this rod is light, it isn't balance that well so its not as sensitive as higher end rods and a full day of casting can get tiring.

I purchased the 6'6" ML, and it has been the best rod i have ever used. From pulling 8lb bass to fighting 10.b lake trout in 65 feet, it can do anything. Very sensitive yet has a great back bone when you need it to. Performs like its a $300 rod.

I do a lot of crappie fishing, and when throwing a jig I use a weighted bobber with a small split shot underneath the bobber to increase casting distance. Which reel would best accompany this rod for that type of fishing, baitcaster or spincast?
