I purchased the 6' 2-Piece UL for trout fishing in Pennyslvania. This rod is amazing in so many ways. The first thing that I noticed when I took it outta the box was the quality of the guides. They shoot the line along the blank and look great. The dark green finish is beautiful. If you're wondering what you spent all that money on, you'll realize it as soon as you hold it for the first time. Now the fun begins because its time to fish.
I just got back from my first fishing trip with this rod out on the Yellow Breeches in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Hooked a little rainbow on my third drift of the morning. The sensitivity of this rod is unparalleled compared to anything I've ever felt in a spinning rod. That tiny little nibble on my 4lb test felt like I was being slapped in the face. No more wondering whether you were just bumping the bottom or if it was a subtle bite. This rod tells the truth. I can't wait to get back out and use it.
If you're looking for the ultimate trout set-up for stream fishing, pick up this rod and pair it up with a Shimano Stradic Ci4. Its a deadly combo and I guarantee you won't miss as many fish. You get what you pay for with these 2 items.
