Great for catfishing I bought this rod around september for catfishing and so far I love it. I bought it for mainly smaller 1-10lb blues and channels but I have caught some big fish on it so far (the biggest being a 50lb flathead) the tip is great for circle hooks and it works for all the techniques I use (finesse fishing, drift fishing, splat fishing, anchored, ect.) Very happy with this rod and will definately be buying more in the future January 24, 2015
This Stik is not Ugly Bought this rod for salmon fishing, I was most impressed with combination of tip sensitivity, overall rod flex, yet solid spine to handle these 20+lb fish.. I also bought a Daiwa DXS 9.6ft salmon rod,, line/load capabilities are similar, that is all. The Daiwa is very stiff,, the Ugly Stik is much more flexible. The Daiwa is on the bench.. The Ugly Stik goes on the field.. Only reason I gave this rod 4 stars is the cork handle was not seated properly during construction, minor cosmetic flaw.. rather than send it back (which I could have done) fixed it myself. I have found dealing with Shakespeare customer service a positive experience.. Any company with any common sense will do what it takes to make the customer happy. Shakespeare does that very well. Based on my experiences, I highly recommend Shakespeare,, also take a look at their 10wt 9 ft flyrods,, those are beautiful!!.. There's nothing Ugly about this Stiks!! December 6, 2013
