Not what I expected.
I ordered this rod from a sporting goods "box store" to use a gift card I had. It was a sight unseen purchase that was a mistake (for my uses). This rod has a very small diameter foam handle, and extremely soft action. Much softer than I wanted or expected. I have used rods from other makers with similar specs and was surprised this rod was so much different than them physically. The blank fit and finish is a thing of beauty, like all St Croix rods. Unlike other St Croix rods the handle was a disappointment. I think my complaints are probably the exception, not the rule. This model might be perfect for you, but you should see one in person before you buy! I did not keep the rod.
ProsBlank fit and finish is superb!
ConsSmall diameter handle did not fit my grip well. Rod action is much softer than expected.

My Go To Trout Trolling Rod.
I have 2 of the St Croix Wild River series Rods and use them for my primary trolling rods for either Brown or Rainbow Trout, I find the action and build quality second to none these really are my tippet top Trout Rods. Worth every penny, I can't imagine going lure trolling without them, in fact if I forgot to bring them I would probably drive 2 hours back home to get them.
ProsYou feel every tail kick and the smallest of bumps.
ConsYou prob wont like using any other Trout Rods anymore.
