St Croix Rod… Going to New Xtremes


Launching at the 2020 Bassmaster Classic, St. Croix’s 3rd generation Legend Xtreme has utilized feedback directly from the life blood of the fishing industry.. the Angler… to create the most sensitive rod they have ever produced.

In collaboration with Daiwa, St Croix has the exclusive rights to produce and distribute rods with Daiwa’s AGS carbon fiber guides in North America.

St. Croix engineers match their unparalleled SCV carbon blanks with the AGS guides to create the most sensitive rod they have ever produced.


They tied up this stealthy package with their 2nd generation Xtreme Skin™ for optimal rod control giving anglers the upper hand on the water.

The Legend Xtreme series includes 4 casting and 3 spinning models.

“The next two months are going to be incredibly exciting,” Simpkins says. “We’ll be unveiling our new Legend Xtreme Series at the Bassmaster Classic in March, and these incredible new rods – the most sensitive rods we’ve ever produced – will be ready to go. New Product Manager Ryan Teach has been at the core of this project since its inception, and it all points back towards listening to our anglers.”

“We never would have tackled this project had our anglers not asked us to, and the new Legend Xtreme Series is going to be a monumental reminder to everyone as to how St. Croix conducts business… not engineering for the sake of engineering, nor marketing gimmicks, but by identifying real needs and responding with the best possible combinations of design, engineering and manufacturing problem solving,” says Teach.

“As important as the Legend Xtreme launch is on its own, the process we’ve been through with this pinnacle series is going to benefit all St. Croix anglers, regardless of which of our rods they fish,” adds Simpkins. “We’ve developed a process for measuring sensitivity, which is going to drive seemingly small changes to all rod series that will result in big differences for anglers.”

Anglers and industry representatives are invited to keep up with developments surrounding the St. Croix Legend Xtreme launch at
