Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for I have another Ugly Stick rod, a one piece, and since I've liked it so well for many years, had been in the market for one just like it in a 2 piece rod. I've tried several other, less expensive catfish rods and have been disappointed each time. Took my rod out channel cat fishing when it came in and it works great, very nice rod, good feel, handles 10-15 pound fish really well. May 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Used for trolling Use thes for trolling for Stripers, They're great and bulletproof July 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by catfish rod I bought this rod to fish for catfish in the red river in north Texas. Plus, I'm going to use it on Sam Rayburn Reservoir here in Lufkin. It's got backbone! Plus, it is sensitive enough to feel even the slightest bite. I plan to have many more fish fries for a long time. May 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Won't disappoint Purchased rod to add to my arsenal of downrigger rods to chase salmon here in Northern California. Used on one trip so far, and it proved worthy of staying on board. Some of the ugly stik downrigger rods were just too limpy to handle the depths I troll and were maxed out. In addition to this rod, are the ugly stik tiger salt water models which handles the conditions superbly. For the price, it was hard to beat. May 23, 2013

Yes, I recommend 10 pound mono line if you are trying to gap those sizes. The rod will do fine as it has a slower action.

A: 
Yes, the reel will fit in the seat, but it will cast extremely poorly if at all since the reel is further away from the rod than the guides. Look for a spinning rod. Also, casting and spinning rods are set to have a top and bottom and you would be flipping it the wrong way.

A: 
Yes but I would buy the spinning rod if you want to use a spinning reel . If you want to use one rod for both types of reels then go 7' med/hvy spinning rod . I would like to say I suggest spinning rods for spinning reels and casting rods for casting reels but the above suggestion will work best if you just absolutely have to use both types of reel on one rod . Good luck .

A: 
A baitcasting reel could possibly fit on a spinning rod (&vise versa), but wont work anywhere near as good on one. The difference between spinning and casting rods are mainly the lengths & guides, and for max performance with your gear, use the correct reel for the correct rod. Hope this helps!

Yes, although maybe not comfortably. It would work better putting a baitcaster on a spinning rod, and some people actually prefer that, but a spinning reel on a baitcasting rod will be akward if the rod has a trigger.

A: 
Yes they will interchange but with disadvantages because of the switching over . First with putting a spinning reel on a baitcasting rod will make the trigger thats on the bottom now be on the top in the way . The eyes are smaller and will slow your cast down thus shorter casts. You need the larger eye for spinning reels to get more distance in your casts . Next if you put a baitcast reel on a spinning rod you will encounter the same problem as mentioned above in that the eyes on spinning rods are larger and set higher off the blank . So with a baitcasting reel sitting right on the blank it will generate a lot of friction at the first eye . Really I can not recommend this idea of switching reel types to different types of rods . If I had to though I would choose the rod I thought I will be using its intended way more than the use with the opposite type reel not intended for it . Again not a good idea overall . Good Luck to you .

I have been looking at this rod and the striper version and this rod has the weight range I am looking for but it seems as if the striper rod is better suited for saltwater (I plan on using it for fresh and salt).

Myou can load the striper rod with power pro super braid with 50lb super braid for big cats but i wouldnt load this rod with 50 lb mono.
For fishing stripers on the ocean ugly stick has some. Good rods in the 20-50 range. That are castting and some that are rated in the 40 lbs spinning that are a lil more expencive but worth the money hard to break an ugly stick

A: 
Yes it would work saltwater but as with all rods they must be rinsed after use. I still would get the stripper rods because they are better suited to saltwater as you have guessed on your own. My brothers stripper rods have thicker coatings than my catrods do. Not sure if thats by design because we never noticed this until reading your question and checking them out . If its an accident then at least you gave it a try on an educated hunch . If you need to know for sure I bet you can look up a phone # on the internet to find out. I have to tell you that I'm a little envious of your fishing for saltwater strippers . Around my neck of the woods they are freshwater strippers only ( the biggens go 25-35 # at best and thats pretty rare ) .Good luck with those strippers . Send us some pictures with a review . Later !

A: 
These rods are great for catfish in the medium to heavy range, probably up to about 30 or 40 pounds, so I'd say they could take on a carp pretty well. I've caught quite a few channel catfish on mine that weighed in at around 20 pounds and I've never had a problem.

Braided line

Details: 
Hi, if I were to use like 50 ilb braided line on my reel, would this pole be able to handle it? Or is the 30 ilb line capacity the limit? I ask because reels have an 'x ilb' limit but you can go much heavier w/ braided line, I was wondering if it worked the same with rods.

A: 
Which lenth?
What are you using them for?

If you are fishing in rivers or streams you need something with a stronger drag/bait running system like a Penn.Abu Garcias bait runner system never worked really well in the ohio river and its current isn't as extreme as other much larger rivers like the mississippi :)

If you are just making a pole to fish for channels and smaller fish from ponds and lakes an Abu Garcia 6000 is plenty of reel.Throw some 20 pound big game on it and with a proper drag setting you are set up to handle fish well over 40-50 pounds.The highest id go Abu Garcia wise is the 6500's.Any higher on such a smaller pole just isnt really needed but its up to you :)
