Best Inshore Rod I've Used
November 25, 2020
By far the best inshore rod I've used. As always St Croix does not disappoint. I have the 7' medium fast. The rod is extremely light and has great backbone. Great for pitching a jig off a dock.
  • - Light
  • - Strong
  • - Great response
  • - Beautiful Rod (if you care about that)

Excellent rod from tip to butt. Strong, light, and sensitive. I use it in fresh- and salt-water as my all-around go-to rod (7 6'' MF).
  • Awesome sensitivity
  • Solid feel
  • Light and strong
  • Expensive but great value considering quality and warranty

I love the way this rod feels. Sensitive but with enough back bone to haul big blues in. Wish I had 4-5 more.
By Phillip
Love it
October 31, 2019
I simply love this rod, the feel, the action and the company behind it. I have 2 of the legend tournament and have been using them a lot lately. I though about getting some custom rods made, and still may one day. However I just don't see the point right now as these work great, and custom built rods will likely cost an extra 100 at least.
  • Feel, sensitivity, action, St.Croix
  • Not Cheap

The St. Croix Legend Tournament Inshore spinning rod LTIS80HF will pair nicely with a Shimano 5000 or 6000 size reel, like the Saragosa SW.  The St. Croix Legend Tournament Inshore casting rod LTIC80HF will pair nicely with the 400 size of the Penn Squall LP Baitcasting reel.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Would the 7/ 7‚€™6 ML paired up with a Stradic FK 3000 be suitable for striped bass fishing or would a bump to a medium be better?

You'll want to bump up to the medium it'll be a much better pair for your reel and be a better rod for Striped Bass.

February 18, 2020
Hello. Looking for a 7ft medium/light action spinning rod for inshore fishing. Hoe does the Legend Tournament Inshore differ from the Legend Elite rods? Is it just the corrosion resistant guides or are there other differences? Thanks so much. 
1 Answer
Both rods have corrosion resistant guides. The Legend Tournament has Kigan Master hand zero tangle guides with strong aluminum oxide rings and titanium frames. The Legend Elite has Fuji Torzite tangle free guides with titanium frames which have 100% corrosion proof performance. Both rods have the IPC, ART and FRS technology but the Legend Elite also has TET whereas the Legend Tournament does not. TET is Taper Enhancement Technology which is precision cut, curved blank patterns that give better action and improved sensitivity. The Legend Tournament has Back Stop lock nut features on the reel seat, the Legend Elite does not have Back Stop. The Elite can also be considered a freshwater rod and the Tournament considered salt.

Trout, Reds, Blues. And anything that bites lol.

Does the 7√Ę‚‚¨‚"Ę6√Ę‚‚¨¬ MH have a lighter tip than the 7√Ę‚‚¨‚"Ę MH. Which would be a better choice for Louisiana bull reds up to 25 pounds throwing 1/4 ounce jigs and grub trailer.
1 Answer
The 7' and 7'6 Medium-Heavy rods both are great choices for your application. The two rods do have different handles, the 7' MH has a smaller handle length than the 7' 6 MH. The rods do have the same power and action, the tip of the rods are the same.

Would a 7' ML fst or xfst inshore rod make a good drop shot rod. Is the inshore lable because it's salt water resistant?
1 Answer
Given the specs on this particular rod I'd say it would ideal for drop shot and lighter baits. Generally when rods are considered inshore rods it means that the components will resist corrosion and would function just as well for freshwater applications.
