St. Croix Avid Inshore Rods

Casting and spinning versions feature SCIII graphite blanks.

St. Croix won the Best Saltwater Rod category at the 2015 international tackle trade show, ICAST, with its revamped Avid Inshore rod, which uses new blanks, new components and new cosmetics. The metallic seafoam-green SCIII graphite blanks use St. Croix's Integrated Poly Curve tooling technology for continuous curve tapers, increased hoop strength and improved sensitivity. The 22 spinning and casting rods now feature Kigan Master Hand zero-tangle guides with titanium frames, Fuji reel seats and cork handles. Prices range from $230 to $290.
