St Croix Premier Musky MH versus H Action Comparison

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I know quite a few members use these rods for striped bass fishing. I own a few of 7’6” MHF versions, and love the parabolic bend when fighting a fish; especially since I primarily use braided line. I do at times wish the rod had a bit more backbone when fishing heavier current. How does the HF version compare?  Does it have a similar parabolic bend when loaded?  Anybody have both rods and could contrast both rods for me?  Thanks!!


BTW, I also own one of the 8’ LT Musky MHF rods, and it has no parabolic bend at all. More of a broomstick type rod. I have pulled too many hooks on large fish with this rod. Mostly targeting large striped bass and trophy cats.

All rods I am discussing are the current offerings. I found a cyber Monday deal on the heavy version rod and ordered it. Keeping my fingers crossed it is more mod-fast than fast. The Premier MH is definitely mod-fast, even though it is rated fast.
