Keep these details in mind:
- Fiberglass rods are great for beginners. They require little maintenance and offer adequate strength on the water.
- Advanced anglers often go for graphite rods, which blend superior strength with lightweight feel. These agile rods perform well in most fishing situations.
- St. Croix rods are classified by their power. Select from rods ranging from ultra-light to ultra-heavy power. Different rod powers help you handle a specific range of lure weights and line sizes. For example, a saltwater angler may opt for a rod with increased power.
- The action of your rod denotes where it flexes along the bank. Fast-action rods flex near the tip, while slow-action rods flex in the butt section.
St. Croix fishing rods can be categorized as casting, conventional and spinning rods.
- St. Croix Casting/Conventional Rods: Designed to have the reel and guides on the top, casting rods are effective for anglers looking to cast several hundred times during a fishing trip.
- St. Croix Spinning Rods: Ranges in length from 5 to 8 feet, positioning the reel and guides on the bottom of the pole to provide smooth, accurate casts.
- St. Croix Saltwater Casting/Conventional Rods: The reel and line are located on top of the rod, and the trigger grip lets you securely clutch the rod while releasing the thumb bar.
