St. Croix Bass X Rods: Stronger, Lighter-and Affordable - The Fishing Wire
“It’s the perfect combination of material, power and action to make casting, retrieving, setting the hook and fighting double-digit bass to the boat a more successful and enjoyable experience. These are the rods big swimbait specialists are going to want in their hands and on their decks.”
My Lews Mach Pro just.. well.. broke. any good all around bass rod suggestions?
The ST. Croix bass X rod is good but pretty expensive I think I don’t really remember the price but it’s a really good rod and it goes well with the shimano Slx dc
Baitcasting setup help
For a rod around the similar price, St. Croix Bass X, Lew's TP1, Abu Garcia Veritas I've fished with and liked. Lot of folks recommend a Daiwa AirdX rod as well at only $50, and the Dobyns branded rods in the $100-120 range. My first baitcasting combo was an Abu Garcia Ultramax combo from Dicks Sporting Goods. Great starter combo, both rod and reel still working great.
Is expensive gear really that much better than my $30 Zebco spinning rod?
I go mid tier, I have the St. Croix bass x and a lews KVD reel. Not exactly cheap but not too expensive to piss the wife off. But the sensitivity on that rod far exceeds my Berkeley cherrywood by a long shot. Like everything ya gotta pay to play.
