Shakespeare Ugly Stik 9' Medium Spinning Rod

This product has been discontinued and replaced by the following product or products:

The Shakespeare Ugly Stik 9' Spinning Rod Model SPL 1100 is a very popular rod for heavier spinning applications, such as large salmon fishing. Its long length makes it ideal for drift fishing.

Features of this rod include blank-through-handle construction for added strength and sensitivity, a graphite inner core and an E-Glass outer layer, Shakespeare's exclusive quick-taper "Clear Tip" design, durable EVA foam grips, graphite twist-lock design reel seats with rubber cushion inserts, black stainless steel guide frames, aluminum oxide guide inserts, and a manufacturer's seven (7) year warranty.

Because of its durable construction and reasonable price, the Ugly Stik is one of the most popular line of rods in the world.

About Me:
I have used the 9' ugly stick for salmon and steelhead. I have had the rod bent into a complete u wile fighting a big Chinook. It doesn't quite fit in my car between the two doors. I broke the tip off just under the unbreakable part. I had another tip put on it and it still works great.

Pros: Length, flexibility, Affordable price

Cons: Does't fit between my car doors

I enjoy the Shakespeare 9' Ugly stick for ocean shore fishing.  It is well constructed and handles good fish battles with ease.  I had an okuma rod and the guides broke off two of my okuma rods.  The Shakespeare is superior in cnstruction and appearance.  Good price and FishUSA shipped it to an APO address, whcih is awesome.  Thanks Fish USA>

This baby make it easy to cast light or heavy weight lures right where you want them to be, and the action is so good that it seems unfair to the fish "Bite and Fish on in a instant" I run this with Shimano Baitrunner 6000D and 4000D and the Salmon and other species dont stand a Chance.

These rods were for salmon fishing in Lake Oahe and fit the bill nicely. They bend evenly and work well for both casting as well as double for downrigger rods. Ugly Stiks are a very universal type rod and take abuse well.

At Fishing Fanatic Charters we use 9' medium action ugly sticks on all of our downriggers. The rods are strong enough to land 35 pound salmon yet flexible enough and forgiving to allow even novice anglers a better chance at landing the big fish. We highly recommend this fishing rod.

Would be a fine salmon rod but purchased as an extra striper rod for the Delaware river and will be used for catfish, carp, and other live bait applications. Nice trolling rod for average sized musky and pike. At this price level not many other rods will last you as long as an Ugly Stik.

About Me:

I bought this mostly for lure casting in the San Francisco Bay, for schooling stripers, 5 to 15 pounds on average. It is replacing my 35 year old Fenwick. I have to say that the quality and materials today are much superior. I actually paid more in 1970's dollars (for the Fenwick) than I did for this excellent graphite rod. I have caught hundreds of bass, both in California, and in the surf of Martha's Vineyard (on vacation) on the old Fenwick. It is time to retire that rod, and use its replacement.

My two new poles were setup with Penn slammers, a 460 & 560 with 20lb. power pro. Casting with side wind gusts just needed some adjusting to hit the target dropoff.Open bail sensitivity was great so we could feel the redfish play with the bait before they took it and ran , that's when the pole goes to work,flip the bail raise the rod tip and let the fish set the hook.If Disney could duplicate the feeling of a boiling redfish on the end of these poles they would have their longest line.

About Me:
Casual Fisher
Flexible and sensitive enough for half pound trout but can take much larger fish like strippers and steelhead as well. Could be considered as a longer general purpose rod. Typical Ugly Stik super construction. Has backbone and VG curve to absorb the energy from larger fish to prevent line wear or breakage, but it's NOT a noodle rod. I've paired it with a Penn 5500Sg and it's a great fit. Could easily sell for much more that they do. Well worth the money...
