Shakespeare Ugly Stik Lite Spinning Rods
Good ugly as expected
Paired this 7' spinning rod with a quantum PT 30. The total package is very light and easily fishable all day casting inshore. Even used it trolling yesterday near shore and caught a bonito with it. Can't beat the value in an ugly stik. Will purchase another when I get the chance.

I picked up the Ultra Lite version of this rod and paired it with a Shimano Sedona reel. Great price, great durability..i love the cork handle and one piece design. this is my go-to kayak fishing rod right now for freshwater fishing.

over exceeded expectations
Broke my main striper rod so I brought my large mouth rod to the beach. i have the 7'0 model and caught striper up to 30 lbs with this rod paired with a penn spinfisher 330. Handled it just as good as my new trevala

This pole handles more than rated for . I used a Ugly stick very similar to this and was sold . Exellent action and cork handles are comfortable .I would highly recommend this pole.

I own 6 of the 7 footer and 1- 6'6" and all have been flawless. I mostly fish with 10lb line and landing fish is smooth with slim chance of breaking off. I only use lures on my rigs and I've landed 40 inch REDs with my set up...just need to set the drag right and use a scoop net to get the fish. Biggest line I use is 12 lbs for the big jacks to accommodate their stubborn runs before they give up. I've had no problem with rod guide inserts coming off with this model, stainless seat holding the guide resistant to corrosion prevents this from happening. I've thrown several rods in the past for guides breaking/coming off.

Works as intended
Good quality for the price. Works just as good as many of the $100 rods for less than half the price.
