New Stuff: St. Croix Avid Inshore Rods
May 17, 2016
Avid Inshore rods from St. Croix feature super-light and responsive SCIII graphite blanks that provide the backbone needed to beat powerful inshore game fish, yet are light and flexible enough to make delicate presentations with lighter lures and baits.
All 22 Avid rods feature cork handles tipped with corrosion-proof wind checks and a light guide train comprising Kigan Master Hand Zero Tangle guides with solid-titanium frames that will not corrode in salt water. All thread wraps are protected by two coats of Flex Coat slow-cure finish.
The series includes spinning and casting models designed to handle high-tech braided lines, monofilament and fluorocarbon.
Conventional models sport Fuji DPS reel seats with gunsmoke hoods for a comfortable grip, while spinning models have Fuji ECS or TCS reel seats.
Price: $230 – $290
