New Rod! Going to use this with the Socorro 8000F for saltwater fishing on Vaca. August 1, 2012
Ugly Stick Aint Ugly I don't usually buy stuff on-line but I checked my usual local stores didn't have exactly what I wanted. I ordered the 9' 2" US surf pole, medium-heavy. It arrived on time. I replaced my 12 lb line w/ 20 lb and off I went to Montauk to throw some 3-4 oz metal. I got good distance and had fun. I think BPS is my new favorite "neighborhood bait shop." In September I may need a 12' pole for strippers. You know I'm going' back to BPS. Martin July 23, 2012
Great Pole A very nice rod and it does what I need it to do. I have no complaints and I can recommend. June 11, 2012
Great Buy Was very pleased with this spinning rod. I have used ugly sticks for awhile, and have always been happy with them. April 17, 2012

inshore/surf fishing

Details: 
I'm a big fan of ugly stiks and fish mostly freshwater but am looking to purchase a saltwater set up. ill be doing mostly surf fishing and fishing from other places along the shore. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions about this rod and if it fits my needs for what im looking for, also what length do you think would be best. I'm also looking to get a solid reel and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on one that would match up good for this pole and also the fishing ill be doing not really trying to break the bank on this setup though, so something that is inexpensive. Thanks

A: 
I dont know about the reel but I just bought the 9-2" Ugly Stik medium-heavy for the surf. I can easily throw 3-4oz lures about 150 feet. It is 2-piece, easy fit in the car. Im using an old spinning reel wit 20 lb test line.
Im happy with it.

I am a big fan off the Inshore Select Rods by Ugly Stik....I own 7 foot med and 7 foot 6 med. heavy. I also like Shimano reels...most all of them can be used in saltwater. As with ANY saltwater fishin it is always best to rinse of all your equipement with freshwater..for the money the Shimano Sienna 2500 or 3000 would be a good start.

A: 
I use those rods a lot in salt water. They're very good rods for the $$, but if you'll be doing a lot of casting I recommend the one piece rod.
It depends on what you mean by "inexpensive". For a real good quality, nice looking reel for that rod that will last a long time, resist corrosion well, cast well with mono or braid, that has a good drag & cost less than $100.00 I recommend a Penn Sargus 5000 or 6000. Any reel cheaper than $80-$100 you won't be happy with for very long, it'll give you problems.
My favorite line for the past 10 yrs is Power Pro braided line, but be careful, it can cut you bad it you try to hold it tight & it slides through your hand.

I like BWS1102 which is 7' and handles 1oz to 6oz lures and big live baits. It also handles the huge fish that hit lures and baits that big. You would love the Ugly Stik big water rod for in shore fishing, and 7' is a good length to start with.

A: 
My favorite lightweight rod for most stuff is the Offshore Angler™ Offshore Extreme™ Freestyle Jigging Spinning Rod teamed with a Penn Slammer Live Liner feature. This is in my book the perfect combo. The live liner feature works great for bottom fishing because you can bunge you rod down and flip on the live liner feature and walk away from it and not worry.

A: 
I would go with a 7' MH action for redfish under 15 pounds and trout. If you are going for bull reds (over 20 pounds) the BWS1102 is a 7' heavy action rod that handles 1oz to 6oz lures with the back bone to handle huge reds, huge bass, & monster catfish. You can use it in salt & fresh water.
