Each rod features 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.

- 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 MGST Tangle-Free top with SiC ring and polished frame.
- Fuji TCS or PSS-SD reel seat/frosted silver hood.
- Split-grip or traditional handle with super-grade cork.
- Machined-aluminum wind check.

- Designed and handcrafted in Park Falls, U.S.A.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
July 14, 2013
I have had this rod long enough to have used it with various reels and lures. Definitely my favorite Musky rod. Throws Bucktails effortlessly. Lighter or heavier than its rating seems to be no problem. I have used it as a crankbait rod as well, and love it. No good for large jerk-baits, it's just too long for that. (7'6" heavy is my preferred jerk-bait rod) Transporting this rod is an issue. At 8'6" long the tip is always "still in the doorway". Once at the water, the length is perfect.
Pros:Fit and finish are a notch above other rods. Rod loads and casts like no other. Very light weight for such a long strong rod. Lifetime Warranty.
Cons:Hard to transport safely, due to it's length. High price.
