I fish Montauk,Breezy, RM,and IBSP in N.J. I throw B.T.darters,P.Poppers, Shads and heavy metal.I have a 9' Ron Arra Lami with a Shimano Sustain 8000.IT is a good setup for Lures up to 2.5oz. I need extra distance for casting lures over 3oz. Any comments about the 10' ST.Croix Premier Med Action Rod would be helpful!!! Needs to be a 2 piece rod with price limit of $250 Thanks in advance!!!

I like the St Croix.. get the old ones.

They too, like everyone else, have moved to Mexico for production.

A few of their $400 models will still be made here. most won't.

very disappointing to me. Most won't really care.

I have been fishing this rod for a few seasons. Really a great 2 piece rod. Tends to loosen up a bit when pencil popping for an extended period of time, but thats what you get with a 2 piece rod. I really wouldn't push this rod more than 3 maybe 3.5 ounces as it really starts to strain at this point. I have thrown 4 oz tins in a pinch, but I am not too sure how it would throw a 4 oz plug laying into it. All in all an absolutely great rod for plugs in the 3/4 to 3 oz range. Good Luck with your purchase.

I have one that I use as a travel/back-up rod. It's a good rod all around rod for the price but 3oz and up is really pushing it. The Premier line is still made in Wisconcin.
