Flytyer - Thanks for the insight, but the SCV (Legend Elite) is the newest rod by St. Croix, having their smooth taper blank design. That was the one I'm interested in. So from your post do I take it that the two rods have very similar actions? I already know that the Sage rod will do what I need it to do, just curious as to whether the St. Croix Legend Elite would do the same thing.
Thanks Fred, for the input.
