I have ultralites, medium spinners, and inshore rods. They are a little heavier than the expensive models, but I can take them anywhere, anytime and can rely on them not breaking. My ultralites got closed in a door (they did not break) back in 1992 and I still have them, they still have all the original guides, and I have worn out three different reels on each of them. I bought a medium one for my son, and it is tough as nails. I always carry one with me.

The first time I seen an ugly stik
I said to myself,I need this rod!
so i bought one then 2 then 3
and well... you get the picture
I fish for catfish,muskies,and carp
and you all know how big these fish can get
I can reel in 15lb + fish knowing that this rod will never break or at least they haven't yet
just to let you know how powerful these rods are
I cought a 3ft muskie on a 5'6 lite action ugly stick by accident one day while fishing for crappies
and reeled him right in ...not easily but I did get him in...and my drag was not set for muskie action that day
that would have cracked any other lite rod easily

I catch em all with my ugly stick. They keep biting and biting. And I keep slaying em with my Ugly Stick. My arm gets tired, but my stick doesn't! Last night I caught dinner and desert with my ugly stick! Never a bad day when you go out to play with your ugly stick. You all go get one ,ya hear!
The fish are dumb, go get em!

I use all Ugly Sticks for all my saltwater fishing. Spinning or baitcasting alike. Even though I purchased these rods for flounder, reds, trout and similiar species, sharks up to five feet have taken my bait and gave it a real run for the money.
I have yet to have a problem with this product or any Ugly Stick I purchased. This is truly a case where you don't have to spend more to get an excellent product. I would recommend these rods to anyone that wants performance and isn't into having the big name rods to impress people.

I would like to buy the 7'6" ML casting. I am thinking it will outcast the shorter 7' ML and might be more parabolic fun. I intend to match it with a Daiwa low profile baitcaster. Any owners of the 7'6" ML have any good comments about their rod. Thanks.
Light is an alternative term for fast - so a medium/lt rod would be faster action than a medium. Faster rods will initially flex / bend closer to the tip giving a more progressive resistance as pull increases. Slow action rods bend along the entire rod length and have a more linear resistance curve.
