St. Croix Technica Fly Rods

Dry fly fishing for selective risers on technical rivers, spring creeks, and stillwaters requires a specialized rod, tuned for sophisticated trout. Your tool of choice demands a smooth-loading action capable of delivering precise casts with ninja stealth, while maintaining enough authority to turn over long leaders in the wind, mend with total control, and produce positive hooksets at distance. The new St. Croix Technica series answers the call of PhD-level trout fishing. Its responsive, medium-fast action paired with an advanced carbon fiber matrix and exclusive MITO® Graphene technology delivers exceptional line speed, endless loop stability, and absolute accuracy. With lengths and line sizes dialed for hunting heads everywhere from wide, windswept rivers to intimate limestones, Technica is a must-have stick for the trickiest of trout fishing situations.

Exclusive MITO Graphene Technology

Graphene is a single-atom-thick honeycomb layer of carbon, harder than diamond, yet more elastic than rubber. In fact, it’s the strongest and stiffest material known to man. St. Croix had an eye on graphene for a while, but until recently, available graphene products applicable to rod building failed to deliver the consistency and control they demand.

Through an exclusive relationship with MITO Material Solutions, St. Croix is the only rod manufacturer leveraging MITO technology and applying the first and only verified functionalized graphene product to its rod-building materials in-house. “Functionalized” means that MITO’s graphene product fits within St. Croix's existing manufacturing processes, and that they're in full control of the material’s application. MITO functionalized graphene is fiber-agnostic, meaning it’s compatible with any carbon or composite material they want to use – a critical consideration, as most of St. Croix rod-blank designs contain multiple materials. MITO’s formula also ensures graphene concentrations in the functionalized product are homogenous – much more evenly dispersed than in commercially available graphene nano resins. This means they're able to apply a total weight loading of actual graphene material at accuracies within .01%.
