Re: All around spinning rod (NRX v. ST. C LE v MB Add)

the st croix LE 6'10 mlxf is what i would get (in fact i have 2 of them), i dont have any experience with the NRX or addermine. the 6'10 mlxf is definitely between the mlf and mf st croixs, and makes for a great all around spinning rod. other than crank baits and very light "ned rigs" i us...

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : New HIGH END UL rods from St. Croix

Nothing to do with the panfish rods, but, with the 6’3” mlxf I landed a 40”, 45+ lb flathead catfish yesterday, with a 2018 Daiwa steez type 2, 6 lb j-braid x8 and a 8lb floro leader, it took about 20 mins, every time I got it near the boat it took off again. Rod handled it in stride, not a super po...

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : New HIGH END UL rods from St. Croix

I used the 6’3” mlxf legend elite this morning for some smallie fishing with a 1/16 jig and either a 2” Senko or a baby rage craw (a lot of the time bitten down). Felt great, sensitivity with this rod in my hands is awesome, it cast the 2” Senko well.


Can’t wait for the 6’4” panfish version!

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : New HIGH END UL rods from St. Croix

loving these, not crazy about the reel seat but not a deal breaker, those guides are killer. i have 3 of the regular legend elites (2 6'10" mlxf and a 6'3" mlxf) and love these rods. ill likely add either the 6'4" LXF or the 6'9" LXF. I've looked at St. Croix for an extra Light ...

Re: Backing for braid on spinning reels?

for me it depends on the spool depth, on a deep spool, i use cheap mono (the cajun red stuff works good, stands out against the braid). for shallow spools i use electrical tape, just tie my knot directly to the spool, then a wrap of tape, then continue spooling the line. works great and have had no ...

Re: Roboworm Ned Worms

i got to use these for the first time this past weekend, and they catch fish for sure, great colors, cast very well. did pretty well on the smallies, no giants but a few nice ones (with a couple walleyes thrown in) they dont have much durability, didnt have a fish throw one, so i could bite them dow...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

anyone use the enforcer for small swimbaits? in the spring i am pretty much fishing walleyes a good 90% of the time, and this year i started throwing some small swimbaits for them (2.75" rage swimmer, 2.8" fat impact, 3" bps speed shad, etc) with good success. i have been throwing the...

Re: Spining Rod Opinions

I went with the LE because I had a LT I didn’t really like and upgraded to the LE. I have fished the 6’8” mxf and 6’3” mxf in avids, lt and le, I prefer the mlxf to the mxf as the mxf is fairly stout, and I tend to finesse fish, and the ml is more versatile imo.i have fished the mlf (6’ and 7’) and ...

Re: Spining Rod Opinions

i have the LE 6'10" mlxf, fantastic rods, i actually have 2 of them i like them so much. throw mainly 1/8 jig with a grub, or similar, but was throwing a 1/4 this morning for some walleyes, and it handles that with ease too. i throw a 1/8th ned rig on it all the time, and some tubes as well, it...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I am sad to see the “dropshot” going away, I have this rod in the original xx, as well as the x4 and phase 3 line ups. It is by far the most versatile rod I own, I use mine for cranks (up to a 1.5 square bill, or so) as well as dropshot, Ned rigs and other jig/plastic combos, small swimbaits... damn...

Re: $300 spinning rod for bottom contact techniques

How is the 6'10 Medium XF rated for lower weight than the 6'10 Medium Light XF? MLXF is rated 1/8 - 1/2 and MXF rated 1/8 - 5/16. That doesn't make sense? This is from both the St. Croix website and TW website. The 7 foot medium fast is rated more in line with what I'm looking for - 3/16 - 5/8. Can...

Re: $300 spinning rod for bottom contact techniques

i would look at the 6'8" mxf st croix legend elite, or perhaps the 6'10" mxf elite, they are more than your 300 budget, but are under 400, for sure! i have 2 of the 6'10" mlxf, and absolutely love these rods, i was not a fan of st croix, had owned from avid to legend extreme in the pa...

Re: What’s your Finesse spinning rod?

for bottom contact i use the st croix legend elite 6'10" ml/xf, and for ;ighter stuff i use a 2016 megabass destroyer lycaon and/or a major craft ms-x limited 6'5" light/fast.

for small tubes, and heavier trd's i use the st croix
