Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptainRoss BWB 1130 is a Great Rod
Love the BWB 1130. I have them teamed up with Shimano TLD-25s, and they work great on King Mackeral and Mahi, and will bring in the Sharks, Cudas, AJs and occasional Wahoo that go along with them.
I use Ugly Sticks on all of my light and medium tackle rods, and they really hold up well and look great! I do wish their lighter casting rods had gimbal butts (for a Penn 975 size setup for example) ...

I caught a 21 inch RED-GROUPER on a light weight rod like for 8 to 12 pound line I use 20lb braided line. The rod was arched so hard I thought the reel was going to fall out and the rod was going to snap, These rods are tough. I am switching to all UGLY Stick rods.

I have purchsed five different Ugly Stick rods. From the heavy to an ultra light and I ove them all. I use nothing but Abu Garcia Cardinals Reels ont hem and it is an great match. For the money they can't be beat.
