Today, when a walleye angler slides a blue rod from the locker and uses it to snap a jig, pull a harness, flutter a blade bait, or lead a slip bobber, the rest of the walleye world takes notice and recognizes it for what it is... the standard by which other walleye rods are judged.

Fast-forward through three exhaustive years of research, development and testing and meet the most comprehensive, high-performance walleye-specific fishing series ever created by St. Croix Rod. Dramatically reengineered and expanded for 2023, the next-generation Legend Tournament Walleye Series includes 17 progressive, technique-specific models handcrafted in the USA on St. Croix's all-new lighter and stronger SCIV+ hybrid carbon blanks. All-new Legend Tournament Walleye series rods feature all of St. Croix's top technologies, the best-available components, and incorporate redesigned, angler-requested super-grade full-cork handles for improved comfort and control.

Despite the all the improvements, some things will stay the same: new Legend Tournament Walleye Series rods remain handcrafted in Park Falls, Wisconsin, USA with a 15-year transferrable warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service. They retain their iconic Tournament Blue Pearl color, supported by all-new graphics. New Legend Tournament Walleye Series models will retail from $270 to $320.
