Nice Rod For Trolling
by Larry C. -
LAKE TROUT require a rod with backbone and a light tip. This rod fits the bill perfectly. One of the best Ugly Sticks for trolling.
Ugly Stick Elite
by Craig -
Very nice rod. I have 3 of the spinning rods and this is my first bait casting rod.
Decent option for Rigging
These rods use a nice blank with a fairly soft tip and decent power; they are a good choice for trolling and bottom bouncing. The downside is I’ve had more than one with very soft eyes that are easily damaged and, the cork handle is more of a cork wrap that is not overly robust. Not the indestructible quality of the original Uglys, but still a decent option.
