they are the best right out of the oven, throw a little butter on there and you're in business.  I am so hungry right now just thinking about it

There not 'as sensitive' as the other rods mentioned. I've used Fenwick  and they are far more sensitive than the croix's at twice the price. I just couldn't keep the tip's from breaking. Original $165 rod or the $125 replacement I got after the original broke. HMG and HMX, both broke 3" down. Gave the 3rd replacement away!

That’s the first time I heard somebody say they can’t feel anything with a Croix. I have no idea though I’ve never used one. I’m happy with my $60 Fenwicks.

I'm a big fan of St. Croix rods.  Yes they are a little expensive but I like the fact that many of them are still made in Park Falls, WI.

Are they more sensitive than St.Croix? Do they come with gravy, butter, or is that extra? Have 4 ML rods in different styles and lengths (6'3"-7'). $40 gander rod or $30 IM7 Shakespeare are far superior in sensitivity to any of the Croix rods I own. Even the short 6'3" ML Eyecon (shorter rod with nano/Power Pro transmit more feel with light bites). Mostly use 1/8oz jigs with 3"-5" plastics. You have to be able to feel the bottom change from sand-gravel-mud, light bites or a small weed on the retrieve. (I) Can't do that with any of the Croix rods. Hardly even pick them up unless I'm throwing spoons, where light bites and sensitivity are not the order of the day. Maybe if I dip the Croixs in gravy I can feel an 1/8oz jig....


My $0.02 Let the bashing begin....

Accidentally bought croissant rolls in a can thinking they were biscuits for biscuits and gravy this morning. Would not recommend.

St. Croix and Lamiglas are two different rod companies.  Did you mean the glass cranking rods?
