The Legend Elite blanks are engineered using St. Croix'sproprietary Integrated Poly Curve Technology (IPC), which allowsthe designers to create continuous curve tapers, avoiding the weakspots found at the junction points of traditional straight-linetapered blanks. The blanks are rolled with SC graphite, St. Croix'smost advanced, high-strain graphite with a 100-percent carbon-mattescrim, for maximum weight reduction and sensitivity. St. Croix alsoemploys a proprietary technology to strengthen the lower sectionsof the blanks and bolster stiffness and hoop strength. This allowsfor a thinner overall diameter and increased durability whilemaintaining the muscle needed to make longer casts and fight fish.Finally, St. Croix uses a unique reinforcing material to engineerlightweight, slim-profile ferrules. This reduces abrupt taperchanges and flat spots caused by additional wraps of reinforcinggraphite.
