New Fishing Products and Tackle — May 2014
St. Croix says its new 12-foot, two-piece Legend Surf rod can bend deeply within the blank so there’s no need for a full-body windup before the cast, even with heavy lures or baits. The 12-footer joins the Legend Surf series of eight existing spinning rods (and three casting sticks, various handle styles pictured), and is rated for 12- to 25-pound-test and 1- to 6-ounce lures. The X-Grip neoprene handle reduces slipping and the Fuji LCsurf guides with Alconite rings increase casting distance. The 12-footer costs $470.
