From the manufacturer
Our legacy is being written everyday – with decisions today determining our success tomorrow.
The St. Croix story has evolved over 70 years and this path has taken many different twists and turns. When Gordon Schluter returned to his northern Wisconsin home in 1977 to retrieve a struggling fishing rod company, he had one simple purpose- to create fishing rods that give anglers the upper hand. With a gritty determination, St. Croix built the most advanced fishing rod facility in the world and with it, a world-class brand that has earned the respect and admiration of anglers around the planet. This driving passion still propels St. Croix today. Operated by Gordon’s sons, St. Croix continues to challenge itself to live up to his ideal.
Where Tech Meets Technique
St. Croix’s R&D department is the most advanced in the business. St. Croix has invested millions into the composite materials and manufacturing techniques. Over the years, the company has introduced many of the industry’s biggest performance breakthroughs, and continues to look for ways to make the rods lighter, stronger, and more responsive.
St. Croix Believes
Every angler deserves utmost fishing experience possible
In being equipped and prepared for the moment opportunity strikes
You can only provide control if you are in control
The persistent pursuit of perfection
Protecting and presenting the things that matter the most
Contributions and sucess of all individuals

St. Croix Engineering
St Croix rods provide performance options to all anglers. With rods for every application and technique, our complete collections offer choices in size, power and action, so you’ll never need to compromise.
The ‘Action’ of a rod is determined by where a rod flexes along the blank. Faster action rods flex mostly near the tip. Moderate action rods flex more near the middle of the blank. Slower action rods flex down into the butt section.
The ‘Power’ of a rod refers to how much pressure it takes to flex the rod. Different rod powers are engineered to efficiently handle a certain range of lure weights and line sizes. To select a rod power that will perform best for you, simply narrow your choices to rods designed to cast the weight of lures and sizes of lines you’ll fish with most often.
Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART)
Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART) is an exotic carbon fiber material that adds a magnitude (10X) of strength with virtually no increase in blank diameter or weight. ART significantly improves the hoop strength of the blank by preventing it from deforming or ‘ovaling’ under a severe load, such as a powerful hook set or fish battle. ART is also a critical part of our slim-profile ferrule design.
Integrated Poly Curve Technology (IPC)
Developed exclusively by St. Croix, Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling technology has rapidly become one of the engineering leader in rod making. Designed to eliminate all transitional points in the rod blank, IPC-engineered rods feature smoother actions, increased strength and greater sensitivity.
Fortified Resin System (FRS)
St. Croix once again breaks new ground in premium rod manufacturing technology with the development of a Fortified Resin System (FRS), which combines a fortified super resin with new computer operated curing ovens that provide improved temperature and time management through all stages of the curing cycle. FRS prevents microbuckling by keeping the carbon fibers in proper alignment.
Taper Enhancement Technology (TET)
After several years of R&D, St. Croix has perfected an innovative Taper Enhancement Technology (TET) that begins with precision-cut, curved blank patterns made possible by a state-of-the-art computerized pattern cutting machine. When combined with IPC-mandrels, these unique patterns create blanks with better actions and improved sensitivity. This pattern design and cutting technology is a dramatic departure from traditional straight-line patterns cut by hand.
