St. Croix 7′9″ Legend Ultra 3 wt.
Looking for a top of the line rod, perfect for small rivers & streams, light dry fly presentations, at a great price? Look no further!
St. Croix nailed it here.
After playing around with 9′ 4 and 5wts on the Grand, then switching to the St. Croix 7′ 9" Legend Ultra 3 wt. 3 pc. with an ultra light weight reel, WOW!
A few friends tried it out and it wasn’t easy getting it back. Everyone that tried it, fell in love with it.
It is one sweet little package. Not only does it look good, it casts like a dream. After a few roll casts in the living room, I decided to test it out on the water.
Grinning from ear to ear, I knew this was a keeper. It’s one of those rods that you don’t have to play around with long to get used to. It was perfect from the first cast.
It’s a beautifully appointed rod too, with slim-profile ferrules, Fuji Alconite stripper guides, hard chrome, single-foot fly guides, REC nickel silver reel seats with bird’s-eye maple inserts.
If you treat yourself to one of these rods, do yourself a favor and spend a little extra dough on a super light weight reel. At under 2.50 OZ. you would hate to weigh this thing down with unnecessary bulk.
When the rod arrived, I had no idea that it was going to be discontinued, but you still might find one at your local fly shop. In it’s place is the 4pc. I haven’t tried the 4pc. yet, but I’d bet money it’s every bit as wonderful as the 3 pc.
If you fish it, you will want it.
I like everything about this rod, the action, fit and finish, all score a 10 in my books.
