The St. Croix Avid Trek Spinning Rod sacrifices nothing to give you the best in performance and versatility! This rod is made on a durable and premium high-modulus SCIII carbon blank. The blank is designed with St. Croix’s famous Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) mandrel technology, which eliminates transitional points in the blank. This advanced reinforcing technology allows the rods to have smoother actions, increased strength, and even higher sensitivity. The smooth Sea Guide Hero Hi-Grade guides with zirconia rings and SS316 stainless steel frames are reinforced for power, but also allow the line to smoothly run through them, reducing any line friction. Outfitted with a Sea Guide hook keeper, a Fuji DPS reel seat, and a comfortable select-grade cork handle, this rod is truly designed for your comfort! The St. Croix Avid Trek Spinning Rod packs performance and versatility into one robust and sensitive rod that you won’t want to be without!
