Melton Hill muskies beware!
December 14, 2013
Great rod, heavy enough to throw 2-3 ounce lures yet enough flex to not kill your back for work on Monday. Throwing 1 ounce rubber shads to 3 ounce pencils and bombers. Combined with a Ming Yang MC500 pulled a 48" Muskie from the roots without concern, and numerous 20-25# stripers hangin around the skips at the fossil plant. Not my first st. Croix rod but the first one I fell in love with immediately. Very comfortable cork handles, very nice color, every guide perfectly in-line, and made in the U.S.A. What's not to love?
Pros:Traditional cork grip
Cons:Lack of butt cap for climbing over rocks. My rod is often my walking stick.
