Rated 2 out of 5 by from Swap the guides out and pretty good rod. Bought the 9' XH and the 10'6" MH for trolling Chinook and Coho at Buoy 10 and Pacific Ocean in WA. Lost insert after insert from the guides. Took rods to a rod repair shop and had guides replaced with SiC guides. Cost about as much as each of these rods cost, but well worth it. For trolling these rods are solid. The 9' XH can bounce a ton of lead which is great during an exchange and bottom fishing Rocks, Lings, and Buts. The 10'6 MH great up to 16 oz. If Ugly Stik added better guides from the start, they be worth selling them at an additional cost. IMO. However for the money hard to beat, just extremely recommend replacing guides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Salmon rod!! I bought the 8'6'' Heavy spin rod two weeks ago, and have landed many king salmon on it already this season. The rod has a great action to it thanks to the higher percentage of graphite used in the blank. I prefer using cork handled rods, which sold the deal for me when I saw this Ugly Stik elite the store. The only negative thing about this rod, is that it is a little heavier than some other rods on the market. I have been fishing Ugly Stiks for many years now, and I still have the very first one that I bought; The elite is fourth in my collection!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor guides I strongly feel quality has taken a hit with the ugly stik rods.. the guides are poor just one trip and I have grooves cut into the tip from braided line, stainless steel dose not hold up. I’m now looking into having them replaced with Fuji guides. There is excess epoxy around the guide legs looks like they are being built by rookie rod builders or somebody that really dose not care about there job. About the only thing I like is the rod blank they are slightly lighter and not as rubbery as the old sticks. With the right guides these are good rods just not with what comes on them expect to pay about what it cost for the rod to have a acceptable guides put on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from not only a great fishing rod, can fix jeep's also had this rod up in erie pa, salmon fishing , it was one of the best rods i ever owned, love it, sadly on the way home a truck tire blew off of a semi truck and hit the underside of my jeep, taking out the tranny lines. know this sounds crazy but had to cut the ugly stick i had and used rubber hose clamps and two pieces of the rod to fix the tranny lines to get home. not only are they great for fishing, they are great incase of a emergency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item! I bought 2 lightpro graphite uglystiks with 2 penn captiva cv2000 and cv4000 spinning reels. These rods are the best in the world! Love to show them off to my friends and persuaded them to purchase also. Theses are lightweight super strong rods compared to other rods I bought which ultimately snapped on me. I can't believe how far this rods can bend without breaking! Would not purchase any other rod. Will be purchasing 2 more for my son in law as a gift. I give these rods a 5 star!! Thank you Shakespeare for an awesome product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best steel head rod I bought a 8'6 medium heavy elite for Lake Erie steel head.So far I have hooked and landed over 30 steel head over the past 3 weeks.I push the rod to the limits on these fish.The rod is tough my reels well thats the problem I blew out a Diawa BG and 2 older Mitchell 300's so far.I have only one other steel head rod and I like it alot but the 8'6 elite took its place now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardy & Sensitive Rod I've used this rod for both salmon and steelhead in the Great Lakes (Lower Niagara River) and it has held up great. I have the 9' Medium rod and when casting lures it is sensitive enough to feel those light bites and is hardy enough to be bounced of rocks and reel in those 30+ lb Kings. If you want a great rod at a great price for big fish I would highly recommend this rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best salmon rod on the market! I live in Alaska, and use this rod for both kings and silvers. This is my 'go to' rod when I need some serious backbone and durability. For the price, nothing tops an Ugly Stik!
