My wife purchased me two St. Croix rods for X-mas, and two more for my B-day the other day, and being that I haven't had an oppertunity to fish yet I was wondering if anyone has fished with St. Croix rods and how they are. Two were baitcasting rods and two spinning rods. Thanks... The first two letters on the rods start with either ES or EC. Which I'm sure stands for spinning & casting.
