I own several saltwater rods and reels. I own Penn Spinfisher SSV 6500 spinning reel and it is on the Ugly Stik Tiger 10 to 50lb spinning rod. I also own the Penn Battle 6000 spinning rod/reel combo. These two rods/reels are comparable. Next I own the Penn Spinfisher SSV 4500 spinning reel and it is on the Ugly Stik Inshore Select 8 to 20lb spinning rod. I also the Penn Battle 4000 spinning rod/reel combo. These two rods/reels are comparable. Both of my Ugly Sticks are far more sensitive rods than any other rods I have used on the water or flexed in the store. The subject of this review, the Ugly Stik Inshore Select spinning rod, is an excellent rod. It has tremendous sensitivity, yet it is rated for 20 lbs. That is great for Galveston Bay redfish and trout. This is the best medium action rod on the market for 20lb+ fish. It costs more than the combo, but you can unquestionably feel the difference.

I bought this rod, 7' Medium, for my girlfriend as an all around fishing rod. I paired it with a 4000 size reel and 10lb braid. This rod has caught largemouth bass, a 9 lb flathead catfish, and most recently a 10 lb snook. Now I'm buying two for myself, the 7' Medium Light and 7'6"Medium Heavy.

This is a good rod for inshore and throwing popping corks, but it is not like traditional ugly stik in that only the top half of the rod is made of uglystik material and the lower half is just a regular rod. Not a bad rod just be aware that it can't bend like a traditional ugly stik.

Just purchased these rods and they feel absolutely wonderful. they are lightweight but have a ton of backbone. I have two of the 7'6 Medium power rods paired with the Okuma Trio 40 BF reel and it is a superb match with color and weight. Excellent length for casting distance as well as fighting the fish. it can also be used freshwater for catfish striper and bass.
