Re: TFO vs. St. Croix
Legend Elite, Legend Ultra, Legend Tournament, Legend Inshore, Avid, Premier, Tidemaster, Wild River - USA
Reign, Triumph, Premier Ice Rods - China
Legend Fly Reels - England
Avid Bait Casting Reels - Japan
Avid Spinning Reels & Premier Reels (Except Model 750) - Thailand
Premier Spinning Reel Model 750 - China
Premier Fly Reels - China
The Triumph is made in China. It comes with a 5 year warranty. If you could afford it, step up to the Avid. It comes with a Limited Lifetime warranty. However, the TFO comes with a Lifetime, "No Fault" warranty. The guys at St. Croix are excellent to work with and I have four (4) of their rods. Two (2) spinning outfits and two (2) Fly rods.
I was lucky enough to find a 8', 4wt Avid that was never used for $100.
It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?
