St. Croix Legend Tournament Bass Rods have more advanced technology than any other bass rod on the market today. LT Bass Rods have smooth casting power, lightweight balance, extreme sensitivity, rugged durability and striking appearance.

Each rod is built on completely re-engineered mandrels designed with St. Croix's proprietary Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling technology. The blanks combine high-modulus/high-strain SCIV graphite with NSi (Nano Silica) resin a proprietary Matrix Resin from 3M that significantly increases strength and durability with no change to the weight. The new rods are further strengthened with Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART ), another St. Croix exclusive.

St. Croix Legend Tournament Bass Rods Features
  • Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling technology. IPC eliminates all transitional points in the rod blank; IPC-engineered rods feature smoother actions, increased strength and greater sensitivity.
  • Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART). ART is an exotic carbon fiber material that adds a magnitude (10X) of strength with virtually no increase in blank diameter or weight. ART significantly improves the hoop strength of the blank by preventing it from deforming or ''ovaling'' under a severe load, such as a powerful hook set or fish battle. ART is also a critical part of our slim-profile ferrule design.
  • High-modulus/high strain SCIV graphite with NSi resin. Featuring 3M Matrix Resin for unparalleled strength and durability.
  • Fuji K Series Tangle-Free Concept Guides with Alconite rings and polished frames. Ideal for super braid, mono and fluorocarbon lines, the sloped frame and ring ''shed'' tangles before they become a problem.
  • Fuji SK2 split reel seat for the ultimate in light weight and sensitivity.
  • Machined-aluminum wind check and trim pieces.
  • Split-grip/super-grade cork handle.
  • Two coats of Flex Coat slow-cure finish.
  • Lifetime limited warranty backed by unmatched St. Croix Superstar Service.
  • Designed and handcrafted in Park Falls, U.S.A.

Excellent Crankbait Rod
November 13, 2016
I picked this rod up with the plan to use it to cast larger and heavier crank baits for walleye in heavy river current. The rod and reel balance very well together and the rod casts very well for distance. The action is perfect for fishing crankbaits as it has just enough give to allow fish to inhale the lure and prevent the fish from pulling free of the hooks on the hook set. The sweet spot of this rod is about 3/4oz, which it really whips out there.
ProsWeight, Casting Distance, Action
ConsIt would be nice if the rod had 2in more on the butt.

ProsSuperbly crafted rod Best warranty in the industry

November 11, 2014
Fished with the newer version of the LT 7'8" crankbait rod recently that a friend loaned me to try out. Outstanding deep crankbait rod. Completely different feel compared to the older version Legend Tournament Medium Heavy crankbait rod that I've owned for several years. The TBC78MHM is my next rod purchase without doubt.
ProsOutstanding action. Light and sensitive. Beautiful finish and quality components.

Used a friend's St. Croix 7'4" Froggin' rod on a fishing trip lately. Already own 6 St. Croix rods and love everyone of them. The TBC74HF will be my next one. What can I say other than it's a St. Croix Legend Tournament rod. Exceptional quality and design, and unbelievable backbone for such a light rod. Can't wait to get one ordered.
