Just wondering if anyone has had the same problem that I have been having with my St. Croix rods the the inner part of the guides has been coming off.

All of my St.Croix's are older and they seem to be holding up pretty good.
Are your St.Croix's Newer? which models are you having trouble with?

With the way things are these days a lot of company's are going with who ever they can find cheapest for manufacturing their products and sometimes quality is compromised.">

Fisheye,
I hope its not on the one I just fixed?


The problem is the ceramic guides which come with the SCII blanks.
It boils down to you get what you pay for.......
I can fix them for you if you would like or I guess you can send them back.

Next purchase step up one level and drop the ceramic eyes.

Sandburr and Pierbridge,

All my St. Croix rods were purchased within the last 3yrs I have 4 Premier and 2 Avid series I guess your right about you get what you paid for only having problems with the premier rods but at $100.00 plus for the premier I expected more. Sandburr email me your address so I can get you these rods for repair if you can change them all to the best St.Croix eye let me know if that can be done.

My experience with St. Croix rods is that they do not take the cold weather very well. I used to store them in my garage. I think what happens is that they get brittle over the winter. I broke 2 now with fish on. Normally you would not break a rod that way, but that is what happened. I have opted to store them inside over the winter and have had no problems yet. I know I can replace them for free, so they say, but they really gouge you for shipping. I still have a busted blank sitting in the garage... may have to send that one in too...

That is a great idea I never thought of that I will start storing them inside. If you need repair contact Sandburr he repaired 1 of mine and I can tell you that it looked like it came from St. Croix factory he did a great job. Thanks Webdude
