Fishing PHYSYX: Every Action Gets a Reaction

All-new PHYSYX Series rods are available now. Read about the techniques and presentations each specific model was designed for.


PARK FALLS, Wis. (March 22, 2024) The physical aspects of fishing are what allow anglers to execute their mental game plan. Making the intended cast; presenting the lure to optimize its action and appeal; setting the hook; fighting the fish these are all physical acts that require angling skills and expertise, but each is governed by the core scientific principles surrounding energy and force. From loading the rod  for a cast, a hookset, or to move a fish away from trouble to sensing a strike, a lure's action, or lure contact, every action has a reaction.
 
Conceived in science and born from 75 years of passionate experience in designing and crafting the Best Rods on Earth, the all-new St. Croix PHYSYX Series exists to elevate the angling experience by promoting and advancing angler control in every physical action.
