Rated 4 out of 5 by Bassgal Pretty nice stick
I have never owned an Ugly Stik before, because I just didn't like how heavy they felt compared to other trigger stick rods that I have owned, and own now. I bought one a couple of weeks ago, because of their reputation for being rugged, I was going to be doing some hiking around the rocky shoreline and wanted something that would resist any untimely hits or rough handling, so the Ugly Stik seemed to fit the bill. It did its job very nicely, is sensitive and has a fast tip and enough backbone for the 7 pound bass that I wrestled out of the stickups with it. A good performer, and I didn't notice the weight so much while fishing with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NebraskaBasser 6'6" M and 7' MH
I own the 6'6" M, and it is a great little rod for bobber fishing, bottom fishing, and live bait fishing. Not a serious lure-casting rod, but still a great versatile rod. My friend however bought the 7' MH, and I would advise people to stay away from that model. It is very heavy (despite its name), and top-heavy, and really is not a bass rod. It would work nicely for catfishing though. If you want a nice all-around bass rod, you'll have to step up to something like a 7' M or MH "Extreme" rod. Bass fishing just requires a bit nicer equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rockchalk06 Buying another
I have several rods of different lengths and actions. I keep going back to my 6'6" MH Ugly stick. I love the feel of the tip when setting hooks on LM. Very comparable to high lines of rods. Compared to my 90 plus dollar rods, I would rate my Ugly Stick 8 out of 10. Good rebates and good warranty. You cant go wrong with this rod. 40 bucks is a good deal. You might be able to save a few dollars and go with some BPS quality rods, but I'd stick with the Ugly Stick
