Best Bass Rod



For the second year, St. Croix won all three fishing-rod categories at ICAST, something no other company has achieved. Named best new freshwater rod, the fibreglass Mojo Bass Glass offers the flex and feel that many bass anglers prize for fishing crankbaits. And thanks to St. Croix’s new technology, it’s as light as an expensive graphite rod. The series includes four baitcasting and one spinning rod, all with premium guides, reel seats and cork handles.
