Broken Legend Rod....Again

Recommended Posts

This is my second legend this year that has broken. Saturday i was fishing on mille lacs lake and i just got done pulling a nice 8lb walleye up and that was about 9:00 at night. I put the two legends away in my rod holder and in the morning i pull them out and my new legend is missing about 6" of rod. I called St. croix and they said they are not going to be able to send me another rod, instead i get 50 bucks towards st. croix. I found one store with one rod left and i am not sure if i should even bother buying another one. I was not to happy with their customer service. I dont want 50 bucks back, i want my rod back. Any thougths???

I have had bad experiences with St. Croix also. I would go with the Berkley Select Lightning rods. They have the same taper as the St.Croix rods and you don't have to look for strait eyes because every rod I have seen had straight eyes! They cost about $20 and won't dissapoint. Another option is Thorne Bros. I haven't used them but I hear they are the best!

I was at a Scheels one day and picked up one of their rods- the reel fell off right onto the floor. I am very happy with my Ugly Stick and South Bend combos, and wasn't the least impressed with the St Croix, especially for the money they charge for them.

I had a bum experience with my one, only and last St. Croix rod several years ago. It was an UL that broke three times under normal use. I kept sending it in and they kept sending me a new one that kept breaking. After racking up about $50 in shipping costs I said the heck with this. There are plenty of other options for that kind of money. I second Thorne Bros.

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
