Good backbone but sensitive tip. There are a number of rods that can perform as well but cannot hold up to hard use and virtually impossible to break. Also, cannot beat the price. I throw my rods in the back of a pick up and will break a tip off usually an expensive rod, never broke an ugly stick.
Pros: Sensitive, Easy To Transport, Accurate Casting, Good Tip Action, Flexible, Durable
Cons: none
Best Uses: Redfish Speclled Trout
Great poles for not alot of money

What can I say that has not been said all ready about these rods? Yes you can spend more money, However, why do it. I have been fishing with the Ugly Stiks for almost 20 years now. I have used many different sizes and lengths. They just work great for every kind of fishing, from pan fish to surf. The are tough, sensitive, and can be used every where. The price aint bad either!
Pros: Durable, Flexible, Good Tip Action, Lightweight, Easy To Transport, Sensitive

Last week I received my new Ugly Stik SPL110266 6'6" 2 pieces,Light action 4-10 lbs rod. Saturday afternoon I was testing it in a mountain lake, special for trout fishing. I have almost all Ugly models but this particular item was delighting me during that day. It's just perfect, great balance, flexibility and strongness, easy 60-70 m castings, it's the bests value between cost and performance. I've been using a Mitchell Advocet II Silver reel with 6lb monofilament.I'm thinking to buy the travel model 3 pieces, 5' too. And special thanks to Fish USA, [...]

I was needing an inexpensive rod that i could take down in keep in the back of my truck for those times when I had some free time and wanted to go drown some minnows. I chose this rod because of its price and other reviews. Its ok for what I needed but its construction quality is fair at best. I spent a couple of hours with the rod straightener out the rod guides and smoothing down some of the rough edges. Would I buy another one, probably.
Pros: Good Tip Action, Flexible
