What can I say? It's a ST Croix!
I have nine other St Croix rods that I have used for every kind of freshwater fishing. I bought this travel rod to use for Peacock Bass fishing in the upper tributaries of the Amazon. This rod easily handles the large, 1 to 1 1/2 oz. surface plugs that are prime lures - I can hardly notice any difference in casting this rod versus my 7 ft one-piece Med. Hvy rod. In fact, the longer handle on this rod is better suited for two-handed casting. This is not an inexpensive rod, but well worth the price.
ProsEasily packed in a duffle bag. Excellent medium-heavy caster. Versatile light saltwater and freshwater rod. Very good warranty.

The TSA will never break another rod
After years of packing a Plano rod carrier to make the trek to Corpus Christi and Port Mansfield, TX and having the TSA break rod tips while inspecting my rods, I decided to try a travel model. This rod was almost perfect. Honestly, if it was 6' 6", it would be just about perfect. The 7' was just a hair heavier than I was hoping for, but overall, it was pretty good. I threw Rapala Skitterwalks, 4" Saltwater Assassins w/ 1/4 oz jig heads and 1/2 gold and silver spoons. It's paired with a Shimano Chronarch 2006E. Pretty close to perfect. I would recommend this rod if you need a quality travel rod for carry on. I will say that at $220, it's pricey, but if I can avoid dealing with broken rod tips from the TSA folks, I'll pay it.

Great travel casting rod!
This is a well built travel casting rod that is a bargain for the quality and craftmanship. The fit and finish are first class and you will not be disappointed with this purchase. The protective case is a bonus and will protect your rod from damage as long as you don't drive over it with your car! Thank you Tackle Direct!!!
ProsGreat fit and quality finish!
