Default St Croix Legend Elite 6 weight

I have a St Croix Legend Elite saltwater 6 weight which is new so it has the latest technology. I am planning a trip west this year. Is this rod essentially the same rod as the St Croix Bank robber series in the 6 weight?

I have a T & T ES 5 weight 9 ft and a Diamondback Flawless 8 ft 6 inch 5 weight along with a Powell 8 ft 3 4 LTT was going to drift boat fish and figured the 6 weight might come in handy. I actually bought it for smallie fishing.

Not the same as the "Bank Robber" which has a much steeper taper and, if using a WF_F instead of the streamer express line it is built around, you would likely need to load it with a #7 or even 8...and this from me, a guy who dislikes over-lining any rod. Elite will be a fine drift boat rod though and you have your T&T #5 for wading with dry flies.

If your western trip takes you to the Madison, stop by Slide Inn; the guy who owns that - Kelly Gallup - was involved in designing "Bank Robber" to fish his innovative and big streamer flies.
