  • Quick-taper Clear TipQuick-taper Clear Tip® design
  • Blank-through-handle construction
  • Guides have stainless-steel frames and aluminum oxide inserts
  • Comfortable EVA handles
Offering the perfect actions for live bait and plug casting, the Shakespeare Ugly Stik Striper Rods are built using the Howald Process™ which combines graphite and fiberglass to create super-strong yet ultra-sensitive rods. The Striper Rods' quick-taper Clear Tip won't let fish feel resistance when taking the bait and their blank-through-handle design maximizes sensitivity allowing anglers to feel what the fish don't. Guides feature stainless-steel frames and aluminum oxide inserts to withstand the rigors of saltwater. Durable EVA handles provide all-day casting and fish-fighting comfort.
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Rod I purchased 4 of these rods last year to use for down-lining for Stripers. The sensitive tip combined with enough backbone to pull in 20~30 lb Stripers is great. The price might be cheap but the rod is not. I recently purchased 2 more of these rods. I love them. December 25, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not impressed To each his own, but I don't care for this rod. I got the 7'6 based on reviews to use for general salt water fishing. I typically like ugly stiks because of the durability and use them for bait fishing, but this rod just feels awkward and clunky. It doesn't cast all that well or feel great in your hand either. I find the new saltwater inshore series far superior to this, so check them out before you purchase. September 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awsome fishing rod. To Start off, my Shakespeare ugly stik arrived earlier than i expected, so thats also a plus, but i like the feel of the grip, from the clear tip of the pole down to the last loop feels much accurate. My first time bringing this rod out on the salt water, i caught two fish and two crab, compared to my old rod, the ugly stik has won my loyalty. June 17, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Product I just purchase this not to long ago, I also recently purchased the Original Ugly Stik. I like the way how it looks, its different color. But what really got me was the feeling of it, It's very flexible and durable, I do plan on collecting the Ugly stik line, but if you want something really Light and just as durable try out the Shakespeare Ugly stik Lite. I wouldn't say I'd Highly recommend this rod to anyone, but if your just looking for something different and try something new get this rod. I love the Ugly stik line. May 15, 2011

A: 
I use the 7' model. The med action works well. I'caught many Stripers and Blues on these. The reel I use is a Penn bait runner, cause sometimes we use bunker chunks or liveliness. The second drag on the rear of this reel is fantastic.

A: 
for downlining stripers, a lot of striper guys and i use heavy action ugly stik striper rods with either abu garcia 6500's or shimano 6000's. you want a big round reel with a good drag that'll hold lots of 20 or 40 lb line.

also for downlining, use 3 oz slinding weights, 2' to 3' of fluorocarbon leader of the same lb test, and 3/0 or 4/0 gamakatsu circle hooks depending on the size of the bait!

A: 
Go to the Shakespeare "Catfish rods", I use 50# braid with those for Giant Redfish bottom fishing, rather than the striper rods that are lighter action.

Same rods, just the catfish models are heavier.

A: 
I'm not crazy about this rods action at all. If you prefer a stiff rod that can horse fish, get the catfish model. Its heavier, but I prefer it to the striper rod.

A: 
i'm an avid striper fisherman and i can say that majority of people on lake hartwell, murry,clarks hill, and sante cooper, all rig these with abu gacia 6500 C3's. you can use up to 25 lb mono,it has a bait clicker, and still has a low enough gear ratio to winch in a 40 lb fish.

If they're good for Redfish/ Cobia/ Black Drum in deep swift saltwater, they're good for kitty-cats.

I have 8 of them and use them daily
