Whether it was a stroke of genius or happy coincidence, the act of handing over your hard-earned money to Uncle Sam is at least mitigated by it coinciding relatively close to the opening days of fishing season. Not only that, but if you’ve planned properly you’ll have plenty of refund money to pick up one of the new, completely redesigned Legend Elite rods. From butt to tip, we’ve made our flagship series even better. Each blank is built with high-modulus/high-strain SCV graphite and reinforced with super-high modulus SCVI graphite in the lower section. Loaded with IPC, ART, TET and new Fuji Torzite guides with solid-titanium frames – the ultimate guide. The result is a rod with dramatically improved balance, handle ergonomics and sensitivity. The bar for freshwater rods has just been seriously raised.
