PARK FALLS, Wisc. – We learned as children that good things come to those who wait. Well, for anxious bass anglers spending the past six weeks learning, reading, and chatting in online forums about St. Croix’s all-new, American-made Victory Series rods, the wait is over.

Eight all-new technique-specific Victory Series rods – each designed, engineered, and handcrafted to deliver all manner of bass anglers more wins – are available for purchase right now at select St. Croix dealers, both online and at retail locations across the country. An additional 17 new Victory models will be announced soon and will be available to anglers this summer.

Victory Series rods are handcrafted with an all-new material known as SCIII+, a hybrid of St. Croix’s advanced SCIII carbon and exotic SCVI carbon to increase power, sensitivity, and balance while reducing overall weight. Durability and performance are further enhanced with a full complement of St. Croix technologies, including ARTTM (Advanced Reinforcing Technology), FRS (Fortified Resin System), TET (Taper Enhancement Technology) and IPC® (Integrated Poly Curve). These technique-specific bass rods – proudly made in Park Falls, Wisconsin, USA and backed by a 15-year transferrable warranty – truly have it all, and at a price that’s accessible for a wide variety of anglers.

The specific construction of each technique-specific Victory rod is customized to excel in its intended use. The exact amount and location of SCVI material is optimized on every different rod in the series, each of which is unique and distinct. For the angler, that means each rod has the precise power exactly where it’s needed, with a correctly balanced tip that supports the desired technique while minimizing rod torque. Handles, guide spacing, and even hook-keeper designs are also customized and performance-optimized on each Victory rod.

Like their performance, the aesthetics of these new, high-performance Victory bass rods are all business; blanks are sanded and clear-coated to perfection, but remain unpainted; anglers can inspect any of these rods in the light to see and appreciate exactly how each rod has been crafted. Victory Series rods are finished with Fuji® Concept “O” guides with deep press inserts and super-grade cork handles, customized per model.
