Handcrafted St. Croix Skandic Ice Series Rods to Debut
Eugene L. 07.08.22
Fishing rod industry leader St. Croix is debuting a new line of ice fishing rods at ICast2022 this month. The new line of Skandic Ice Series is a premium line of hand-built ice fishing rods made from premium components. Made from St. Croix’s proven tapered solid carbon fiber blank for sensitivity and strength that has color contrast tips on select models.
The guides on the rods are innovative new Seaguide Delta TYG TYG guide train. They feature a modified triangular design for these single-foot stainless steel guides that have an ADAMANTM coating that reduces friction when the line run through the guide array. The rod is capped with another Seaguide PVD coated Stainless steel tip top. This guide set makes it so anglers can drop down to the fish faster and more efficiently with these rods.
The handles come in a split and full grip styles with reel sears that have no-show nuts on select models. The handles are made from an agglomerated cork material, the most durable cork material the St. Croix engineers have ever tested. From all these parts the rods are hand-assembled by people you can trust. All these St. Croix Skandic Ice rods are backed with a 5-year warranty. A warranty that I personally know from experience that St. Croix stands behind.
“Consisting of 12 models ranging in length from 24” to 36” that cover the gamut between ultralight and heavy power, our Skandic Ice Series supports precise presentations while offering extreme durability, custom looks, high-quality components and angler-preferred ergonomics.
Skandic rods are handcrafted from precision-taper solid carbon (SC) blanks with custom handle configurations optimized to angler preference that supports intended techniques.
Skandic Ice rods feature St. Croix’s most durable cork material ever and an innovative new Seaguide Delta TYG guide train with ADAMANTM coating for efficient line control and management in extreme conditions. Retail prices are $75 to $110 with a five-year warranty.”
