Rise of Legend Elite Musky Rekindles Ancient Battle
March 17, 2016
St. Croix Rod has made its choice; what side of the battle-line will you land on?
Park Falls, WI (March 18, 2016) An old wound has been reopened. The subject sat latent for years, even double-decadesbut has resurfaced like a forgotten pandemic from the earths crust.
And in this time of steeped political gamesmanship, where no candidate can seemingly offer a straight answer, St. Croix Rod is taking full responsibility for the reopening of this wound: the timeless, sometimes contentious debate over the correct spelling.
Is it musky or muskie?
Best we can tell, the polarizing topic respawned with the birth of Legend Elite Musky. (Yes, St. Croix says musky.) This best-of-the-best musky fishing tool got elite anglers out of their chairs and talking about the incredible rod, and as a byproduct, refreshed the correct spelling dispute.
But before delving into the debate, its fair to share intel about the incredible Legend Elite Musky
Weve been working quietly behind the scenes for the past two years to create what serious musky anglers have long awaited, says Rich Belanger, St. Croix Promotions Director.
Specs point to Legend Elite Musky weighing 10-18% less than the popular St. Croix Legend Tournament, a big deal when you add up the hours, days, weeks and months that serious musky anglers spend on upper body workouts.
As baits are getting larger and heavier and anglers put in longer hours chasing even bigger fish, the Legend Elite Musky Series represents that dream musky rod family that reduces physical fatigue and keeps anglers fishing longer, upping their odds at trophy 50-plus-inch fish, says Belanger.
St. Croix engineering head Dave Schluter says they quite literally went back to the drawing board with the new series. They cut weight by re-thinking the blank, utilizing SCV carbon fiber, a high-modulus, high-strain material that creates a lighter, quicker, faster and more responsive blank.
Our new Legend Elite Musky also features a completely re-designed guide train utilizing Fuji Torzite for rings that are harder and half the diameter of the SiC Concept Guide System, and guide frame weight reduction while maintaining optimal guide opening size, adds Schluter.
With the overall reduced weight in the blank and less mass on the guide train, the rods practically float in the hand. Pick one up and youll notice a significant reduction in tip mass. All that amounts to the lightest (and best) muskie rods on Earth.
