St. Croix Avid Series

St. Croix Avid Series

St. Croix's Avid series has been beefed up with four new rods: a 9-foot, 3-weight; a 9-foot, 4-weight; an 8-foot, 3-weight; and a 9-foot, 12-weight. All are two-piece rods and, as are the other four models already in the line, they are moderately priced and tailored to satisfy the needs of experienced flyfishermen. The rods have moderate actions, uplocking black anodized aluminum seats and graphite inserts. (From $170; 800-826-7042; www.stcroixrods.com)
