St. Croix Legend Elite fly rods are a seductive combination of slim-profile ferrules and stunning cosmetics matched with premium, high-modulus, high-strain SCV graphite blanks loaded with ART and IPC technology. Legend Elites also feature SCVI graphite in the lower portion of the rod for added power and reduced weight. All this, and NSi (Nano Silica) resin technology, as well. The result is enough space-age science and American handcraftsmanship to give you a four-piece rod that performs like a one-piece. Freshwater Legend Elite models are finished in a smooth Gallatin green.
