Shakespeare Ugly Stik Bigwater Spinning Combos
Big Water Coombo
Ugly Stik has been my choice since I first held onto a rod. I have Ugly Stik"s from 4'6"- 10' and the new 7 footer will fit in where the 10 footer would be too much.

Just what I needed.
This combo workers well for me. Have landed fish up to 30 lb. It was a good buy for what I needed.

Good rod, OK reel
This is a pretty decent starter for people getting into saltwater fishing (or back into it, like I am). Of course, the Ugly Stik rod is pretty much indestructible. I've actually used sinkers that are heavier than the max. 3oz that are supposed to be used with this, no problems. The rod casts decent, and I've been able to haul in a few stripers with it, without issues. The reel is a pretty cheap model, and works ok. I haven't had any issues with tangles on it, but it's only 2 bearing, so the retrieve is not as smooth and quiet as it would be with a better reel. It's one of those types of reels that you expect to use for a season or two and replace anyway. I'd give it 5 stars if the reel was better.
