Default St croix legend series

I recently acquired a st. croix legend series 7' 9" 3/4 weight fly rod. I think its an older model rod. Does anybody know anything about this rod? There's no serial number and the model number is L7934 and it says im-s graphite on it.

I have a Legend 10wt that I bought new as a "close-out"
I believe that they were discontinued around 1996-'97
The Legend was St Croix's "top of the line" at the time.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum; about the rod, is it brown? I had an old Legend 7'9" 4 weight that I gave to a fellow who had lost his rod back in 1997. The rod was outstanding but I already had a 7'9" 5 weight and so did a good deed with the St. Croix. Deep down I regret being so generous, it was a great rod.

Mine is a dark red and says legend series in black writing. Ive never fished with it yet but it seems nice. A little faster than some of my other rods.

hmmm....some of the older fly rods had that color scheme....but I don't believe they were called legends...or legend ultra. Might be wrong.

I started a similar thread a few years ago

St Croix Legend Fly Rod question: what year?

I sold the rod shortly after that didn't have the room at the time for 2 pieces, so Off it went.

Mine was a dual rating too, and looked similar.

St croix are good rods if that is your concern, the legend series is made in Wisconsin , I used to have several st croix rods that I fished with for years and they have a great feel.
