Saw this on tackledirect, small price drop compared to the current model if the information on the site is correct which I'm guessing is the price difference from the savings of using fuji titanium torzite kw guides for the reduction train instead of the rv guides currently used. From a quick search I'm can't find any information about it anywhere, maybe someone at tackledirect made a booboo and let this slip before St Croix officially announces it at icast? Either way if anyone knows anything I'd be keen to hear it thx.

Hmmm, interesting!  Good observation.  

I think I prefer the RV's, but I'll definitely check them out.  I do not like the grips, however.

   There's a new Avid surf, legend is staying.

Avid is changing color to flat black, legend back to old guides to lower price point.

Are you sure? What’s up with the pics on TD then?

Where did you get this idea about the Legend? Sounds like nonsense..

Interesting seeing as I just broke an old legend.  Eager to see what the new stuff will be.

I did as well, they sent me the same K guide version- nothing new. Just received yesterday, i'll take pics of the guide tags to show

Looks like the price drop is going to SiC rings instead of Torzite's.  

"Fuji K-Series KW tangle-free guides with SLIM SiC rings and titanium frames for unrivalled, 100% corrosion-proof performance."

I see that TD has removed it's listing for the "new" legend but the listing for the new avid series is up, I wonder when St Croix is going to give us the official info

Doesn't it seem silly that in what...... 3 years they've had 3 redesigns of their top of the line rod.  Same blank....just changed the grips and guides...

How long was the RV version out for 2 years?

 

Version 1 stainless guides garbage butt cap $$$$

Version 2 same blank insanely expensive guides and a butt cap and different foregrip $$$$$$$$$

Version 3 Same blank ridiculously expensive guides and a slight grip mod  $$$$$$

 

How bout a new 450$ version like the original with stainless K guides and same butt as current...

they make cosmetics, and too light, fragile, for better selling.

basically they make worse of a product and charge huge money for it.

 

Ksong do not let those of yours go that way.
