Rated 5 out of 5 by Blackwater Toughest Rod I know of
I love Ugly Sticks for tough, down and dirty fishing, such as huge catfish or stripers. Both of these species are famous for going crazy when they get up to the boat, and many rods are broken with the fish usually getting away at this crucial moment. You can almost forget that with an Ugly Stick. They CAN be broken, but it sure does take a LOT of effort to do so.
They can cast lures and withstand lines considerably in excess of the rod's ratings. I don't think you can find a better tough duty rod anywhere, and ESPECIALLY a the $30 price level. Money well spent, in my experience.
They're not for impressing your buddies with glitz and shine, but they'll git'r done when many, many other rods will disappoint.
