I just picked up my brand new St Croix BassX the other day and I would say it worked out pretty well! Watch til the end if you want to hear all of my thoughts and honest review on this $100 fishing rod.
I chose the 7’1 Medium Heavy Fast Action Bass X Casting Rod (BXC71MHF). This model is rated for 12-20lb test and 3/8-1oz lure weights.

All St. Croix rods come with a 5-year warranty so that also helps 🙂
