The more I use and play around with these rods, the more I feel the nuance difference amongst them.  At first I really like the Curado 6'10" MLF casting rod.  That's in part where it had an edge over that the my older Phenix M1 6'9" MLF casting rod.  After using the St. Croix LTB 6'10" MLXF it's beginning to grow on me and seems to be much more refine. 

Perhaps it's just that the St. Croix rod suits me or my style.  The rod blank has just the right specs for how my casting motion induces lure flight.  In addition is just how St. Croix built these rod taper where there is almost no recoil from the casting motion.  Or rather I should say that the recoil is very controlled.

In terms of palm holding position and grip, my hands still prefer the reel seat of the Curado rod over that of the wide reel seat on the St. Croix LTB rod.  The reel seats on St. Croix rods are more of weird design in my opinion.  I still like the old Fuji ACS reel seats over that of current Fuji PTS reel seats.   Again PTS great for trigger finger hold while casting, but not as secure for palm holding position where the ACS excels over.  It is truly a shame that St. Croix had stopped producing a ML casting rod in these specs.  The only current mode is a Premier in 7' MLF. 

Honestly, I would still fish a spinning rod inverted with a casting reel going forward.  That's where the Shimano Expride 6'10" MLF spinning rod really shines, and secretly my old St. Croix Legend Elite 6' MLF spinning rod outperforms everything I've been chasing in a casting rod set up.

Or they could've just said that only modern human have greed, envy, and lust.  Thus they eliminated neanderthals.  See what happens when those neuron links gets all fired up.  :D

I think I will finally say that I belong to the old folks group now.  My body isn't like how a young twenty year old body anymore.  Thinking like that, well seems like it was over twenty years ago, approaching thirty years ago.

Simple, it takes two people to do the job of one person...

It's almost standard across the board of employment anything.  The common blue and white collars are less capable by today's standards.

When I was a young buck, two of us processed $1k of work an hour.  By today's standards it take 10 people to do that exact same work.  And...wait the price has increased easily by double or over.  So by measuring it accordingly it would mean that two of us did the work of 20 people by today's standard.

Society is down the gutters and digging deeper... :D

Secretly my 6' Light spinning St. Croix the tip broke on it and I fixed it up so it's actually 5'11" and has worked better than it's original form.  I could say mine is customized.  :D

So after a few days practicing with the St. Croix 6'10" MLXF casting rod and getting used to it.  I'm beginning to see why this rod is very good, well at least the rod blank action and power.  The direct comparison is the Shimano Curado 6'10" MLF casting rod.  I also still have the Phenix M1 6'9" MLF casting rod too.

Overall component assembly has to go with the Phenix M1.  It has Alconite ring inserts and the reel seat is very functional in design for both traditional trigger grip and palm grip. 

The Curado rod does a better job at casting lures over that of the Phenix M1.  Partially due to the design copy filtering down from the Zodias rods.  It has the feel of it can take a lot of use and still provide good performance. 

The St. Croix being a $300 retail rod, does edge out just a little better as far as performance.  The tip section of the rod is just a tad bit more sensitive and has a much better load progression.  At first I thought it was kind of like an Ugly Stik tip load but actually not.  I went and double check with the older 6'8" MXF and when I line up the tip sections according to tip, they were identical is the extra fast tip load.  Before that I had the rod reel seats aligned and misjudged the tip load while in comparison.  It gave the false visual impression of the longer rod having a longer tip load forward.  Still the heavy and bulky design of the reel seat and grips is what kills this rod.  It was designed for people with Xtra Large hands.  Especially the foregrip on the design is really bulky.

It could be 60F or 20F depending on Mama Nature.  One year I had my boat out on the lake.  One year I was actually ice fishing on the lake.  :D
