    Well I went back to Gander Mt. to purchase one of the $20 guide series rods and after feeling the action i wasn't impressed with it. i wanted fast as this was to be for my crappie/bluegill/small cat excursions. I've always loved St. Croix first and foremost and as is with everytime I enter a sporting goods store I find myself staring down the St.Croix rods. I picked up 6' 1 piece medium action fast power and fell in love. The security box attached to the rod weighed more than the rod itself. It feels like it should cost more than $60 by a longshot to me. After seeing 5 years warranty that sealed the deal and as always i spent way more than intended. This rod for its intended purpose has backbone enough to satisfy with a very good sensitivity. A beautifully built rod, nice cork and a fair price. If you guys are in the market its worth a look and they have some musky-type versions which I will try to get one later this year for cattin'

    I`ve got 2 st croix rods and love them. my rods are for walleye though not monster catfish. If i was a married man with kids i`d be fishing with a zebco 202 combo rod and reel. ST CROIX are pretty pricey both of mine were over 100 bucks a piece. Thank god i`m single LOL

    If you guys are looking for a good St.Croix rod. I found the they have two i really like for catfishing. Both are 8' models. One is rated for 50lb line and the other is rated for 60-80. Both are pretty nice. They also have real nice 7' model, I think it's the saltwater series. That rod is real nice but the price is at $200.00. The other rods I mentioned are about $160-180. You get what you pay for in this day and age. The only problem with getting rods like that, is that you have go out and get a top end reel for it. A regular reel like an Anbassador just don't cut it.

    St Croixs are very nice rods. If you are looking for a good catfish spinning rod there is one on ebay ending in 5 days They do not make this rod anymore it is six foot six extra heavy power fast action with a rating of 25 pound test line I think up to 2 ounces. I have 2 of these and they are very stout. I have had one for 5 years and just recently acquired another one and my buddy has had for about 15 years.
