St. Croix Avid series
 
Any comments on this rod? This was the first rod i ever owned and i must say casts quite nicely.

I have the 9' 6 wt. SC5 whatever that is called. I built it back when the SC5 was the top of the line St. Croix. I like the rod. I don't use it as much as some of my rods because it's a 2 piece and I pack the 4 piece rods along more often. Not a thing wrong with the rod though.:thumbsup:

I have a 9', 4wt that I like and use often.

One thing I like about St Croix is their 'spare tips' program. $30 to your door for a spare tip for most rods. I bought one for this rod, just in case.

I have the 8' 4wt and like it alot. It is a good small stream nymphing rod. It will really sail small dries too. A good all around rod without a super fast tip.

hard rods to beat for the money.nice med fast action easy to cast but good power in the midsection.

I"ve owned several and could never get the knack of casting them...until I got the 4pc 5wt. Once I gave the Avid what it wanted, it casted wonderfully.
