St. Croix has recently released a new line of rods, the Mojo Cat series. Using St. Croix’s specialized S-Glass blanks, these offer a lightweight blank with great performance. “Built on blanks with a dynamic blend of premium SCII graphite and 100-percent linear S-Glass, Mojo Cat rods provide exceptional strength and lifting power, plus enhanced sensitivity and tip flex,” says St. Croix V.P. of Brand Management, Jeff Schluter.
Mojo Cat rods use Kigan Master Hand 3D guides with slim, strong aluminum-oxide rings and black frames. All thread wraps are safeguarded with a dual coat of Flex Coat slow-cure finish. Fuji ECS reel seats with black hood clutch casting reels, while Fuji DPS reel seats with black hoods are affixed to Mojo Cat spinning models.Each rod is equipped with a high-grade cork handle and an exclusive Kigan hook-keeper for securing all sizes of catfish hooks.
Seven Mojo Cat models include five casting and two spinning rods. Built specifically for channel, blue and flathead catfish specialists—and ideal for die-hard tournament anglers—these rods are matched to specific line and bait/sinker weight designations. Both 7-foot medium power, fast action casting (MCC70MF) and spinning (MCS70MF) rods are rated for 10- to 25-pound test and ½- to 3-ounces of weight—tailor made for medium-duty channel catfish applications. The 7-foot 6-inch MCC76HF casting rod perfectly matches drift fishing approaches, including walking bait in rivers. And at 8-feet in length, the extra-heavy power MCC80XHF casting rod is ready to waylay the next world-record, beefy enough to handle 50- to 100-pound test line and up to 32-ounces of weight (or the equivalent of a 1-pound skipjack fillet plus a 16-ounce sinker.) Lastly, for packing small but biting big are a pair of 2-piece, 8-foot medium-power models (MCC80MF2–casting and MCS80MF2–spinning).
