Built by hand with premium materials and components, the St. Croix Victory Bass Casting Rods are a tournament caliber series designed to help solidify your spot on the podium. The Victory Series is a fully comprehensive lineup of technique-specific rods to help dial in tournament level performance with your favorite bass fishing tactics. Built on St. Croix's new SCIII+ blanks, these rods offer superior strength and lifting power and significantly reduced blank weight. This new SCIII+ material is a high-modulus hybrid carbon fiber that combines properties of St. Croix's SCIII and SCVI carbon blank material. This combination of materials allows for a rod action that is truly customized for the rod's intended application. These expertly balanced blanks are fitted with quality componentry such as ultra-durable Fuji Concept "O" guides with deep press inserts for superior performance with monofilament, fluorocarbon, or braided lines. Casting models are equipped Fuji SK2 reel seats along with a Fuji KDPS reel seat nut with a thread covering hood. Rounding out the design is a set of split-grip handles fashioned from high quality cork for a comfortable grip and classic appearance. All Victory Bass Rods are handcrafted in Park Falls, Wisconsin to ensure they meet the standard of quality that anglers have to come to expect from St. Croix Rods.
