Shakespeare Ugly Stik Custom Spinning Rods
AN OUTSTANDING ROD
I have used this rod for years. In fact, it is one of the very first Ugly Stiks! Very sensitive tip. No problems other than it is getting so old I will have to rewrap the guides soon. I use it mainly as a catfish rod at Clearlake, California. Most of my fish run 12 to 20+ pounds. The Ugly Stik handles them with ease. Last week I bought a new ugly stick. This one is a ultra light that I will use for trout fishing. I caught a 19 inch rainbow on Lake Berryessa with it the first time out.
Would I recommend the Ugly Stik? YOU BET ! ! !

BEST FISHING POLE EVOR!
I was drawn into ugly sticks after hearing how good they were, so i bought the 7 ft, 14-17 pound test model just to see how it would handle... just after 3 months that i got it, BEST ROD EVOR, i have caught 1200 fish from small bunker to 30+ pound stripers and monster blues! This rod paired with a penn reel, can withstand the test of time, and harsh saltwater. and very big fish! I will definetly be using more ugly stics in the future

If I had to chose one rod and reel combo to use all day for Snook and Reds it would be a 7 Ft. M. action Ugly Stick Custom with a Shimano 3000 size Stradic reel. Spooled with 14 lb. Fireline crystal.
I have been using this combo here SW Florida for a year now and I love it. It has caught every predator that swims the grassflats here including a five foot Bull shark
Bigtime fan of Ugly Stick rods
