No problem Gordon--more than one way to skin a cat. I'm a big fan of St Croix rods.

I've been to the factory and watched them make rods. I learned a few things about rods while I was there. The employees stay there a long time and love working for the company.

U S. made--one reason I patronize them. Although I believe they now import blanks for their entry level models from Mexico.

Actually all the Mojo, Triumph, BassX, Premier, and everything under about $250 are made completely in Mexico DC. I have 3 Mojo Bass rods and a Triumph rod. The quality is very good and I'm very happy with them.

They MAKE their entry level rods in Mexico. These include the Panfish Series, Mojo Musky, Anchor, Trout Pack.


They DO NOT import blanks from Mexico for the rods they make in Park Falls. I watched them make the blanks.

Avid Series, any rod with the name Legend and Premier series rods are all made in Park Falls.

Fred I just looked at their website...any rod with Premier in the name is made in Park Falls.

Good to know Frank. I didn't think they could make a $150 rod in the USA.

The photo below the heading 'vertical manufacturing' shows them building the rod blanks. On the right side, you can see the stands that hold the various mandrel blanks for the rods. The blacks sheets are the fabrics that form the rod body.
