More Choices for Anglers: New Ice Models for 2020/2021

New-for-2021 St. Croix ice rods give anglers new options in performance and price

 

Ice will soon be building southward across the norther-tier states, beckoning passionate anglers to begin their annual hardwater pursuits. St. Croix Rod – makers of the Best Rods on Earth® – are busy building, too… handcrafting the most complete lineup of technique-specific ice rods that give anglers the upper hand in any situation.

 

St. Croix is proud to offer 20 new ice models in three different series to expand choices to anglers for the 2020/2021 ice season. From the comprehensive, hardworking, reimagined Mojo Ice Series to three new extra-fast models in the pinnacle Croix Custom Ice (CCI) Series, St. Croix offers more options and more performance on the ice than ever before, including five brand-new Premier Ice Series Combos.

 

NEW Croix Custom Ice (CCI) Models

Continuing its promise to deliver technique-specific rods to ice anglers, St. Croix’s pinnacle CCI series of ice rods grows for the 2020/2021 ice season with three exciting new extra-fast models. Requested by anglers, the new 38” medium, extra-fast EYE RAISER (CI38MXF), 32” light, extra-fast PAN DANCER (CI32LXF) and 30” medium, extra-fast HOUSE (CI30MXF) expand the 2021 made-in-the-USA CCI series to 16 models, and feature proprietary blank technologies for extreme performance unavailable in any other production ice rod.

 

Designed to present large baits to trophy walleye, the standout CCI CI38MXF EYE RAISER features an angler-requested full cork grip and reel seat, and is the complete power-jigging package.

 

Designed for inside power-jigging, the 30” HOUSE ROD features a full cork handle, while the PAN DANCER features a cork split-grip handle, both without reel seats for optimized reel placement depending on size and weight.

 

The new EYE RAISER and HOUSE ROD models are crafted from a dynamic blend of carbon and glass patterns in a tubular construction (TCG), resulting in extra-fast blanks that are extremely light and exceptionally sensitive, with tip flex for superior bite detection and the power necessary to control large predators. Optimal for panfish presentations – especially with jigs and spoons – the new extra-fast PAN DANCER model is crafted from St. Croix’s advanced solid glass (SG), delivering the ideal taper for bite detection without compromise to control or hook-setting ability.

 

Each Croix Custom Ice rod is uniquely designed, engineered and handcrafted in the USA to exceed the expectations of the most demanding ice anglers.
