Shakespeare's Ugly Stick Lite Trigger Rods offer same durability and sensitivity as the original Ugly Stik, but with an extra layer of graphite around the blank. The extra layer of graphite makes the Ugly Stick Lite Rods thinner, lighter, and even more sensitive.
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. September 26, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. March 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 June 30, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice rod I really like these rods I use both the spiining and the casting. Good sensitivity nice feel cast great. April 14, 2012

Would be using 6lb line and 1/8oz or 3/16oz shallow cranks. I want the 7' UL casting rod but not sure if they make a nice real to match the line rating for the rod.

A: 
Most of the time this rod is used for crappie fishing with a small spincast reel like a tiny lite. For throwing small cranks it is going to be a little tough to find a small baitcast reel that is not very expensive. I would have them take a look at the crappie maxx bait cast reel and the browning baitcast reels. They are a little more compact and would balance better on the rod. Probably the best match would be a Calcutta 50, but that is going to be some bucks.

A: 
yes...almost too flexable! you really need to go in and feel one for yourself and you'll know what i mean. you'll most likely get a rod that's shorter than you would like. nothing longer than 6'6". nice new rod for the price. these are quite lighter and not as bulky as the original and look a little more 'in style' for the times. it's worth your time to check it out.

A: 
Yes it is. This rod paired with a 4.7:1 Pro Qualifer is my crank set up. Kinda heavy compaired to my graphite rods, but I want a rod that will not break. This is it.

My rod is a 6'6" MH. Just enough flex to zing the crank way out there but still enough backbone to haul a good size LM out from deep.

I haven't used this rod for deep walleye fishing but in the past used one just like it. I was very happy with being able to yank 6-7# walleye from 20 feet or deeper.

A: 
i would say that for a trigger rod...the lite ugly is more sensitive...maybe too sensitive. as far as the spinning version goes...ugly lite hands down. it also depends on how long of rod you prefer to fully answer you question. i would say overall...the ugly is most likely the best bang for the buck. as far as an accurate rating...i'm just not qualified to answer that. i haven't felt all of them so i just don't know.

The Ugly Stick seems to bounce a little more. I would rate mine about 8 out of 10 compared to some higher class rods I have. My next will be another Ugly Stick. I have the 6'6" MH and its first class.

I would say no. I have not ever fished for musky, but after watching some videos on it, they fight like mules. Your gonna want something heavier like the MH.

I would suggest using a rod in the 7' heavy to a 7' extra heavy rod. You need a lot of backbone to battle these fish; they put up a very large fight.

I have a friend that loves his. If you ever wanted to set the hook on something you better forget it though. Would be like trying to shoot pool with a rope. Fun to catch fish on, just not a real responsive rod.

what is a trigger rod?

5 years, 1 month ago
Answer this Question

Answers

A: 
A trigger rod is a rod that has a little "trigger" on the handle. If you look at the picture of the handle you can see the little thing sticking out. It allows you to use bait-casting reels easier as the "trigger" gives your finger a place to hold the rod steady.

The quick answer is that a trigger rod is a rod made for baitcast reels. A Spinning Rod is for spinning reels. Hope that helps.

A: 
A trigger rod is one where the reel sits on top of the rod and has a trigger on the bottom for resting your finger(s) against.

You'd use a baitcasting or spincasting reel with one.

A: 
Absolutely YES. There are more sensitive rods out there; however, if you are on a budget and want a tough rod, these do the trick. I have more expensive rods that I'd prefer not to hook a big cat with, but would not fear hooking up a huge cat on an ugly stik.
