Now days you can spend more money on fishing rods than ever before, but if you are rough on gear (like me) you don't want to spend 200 dollars on a rod and then get it broke off in a truck door or stepped on in the bottom of a boat trying to tackle a big fish. For the money, you can not beat Shakespears Ugly Stick. These rods are tuff and they will catch you just as many fish as those expensive ones. Ugly stick are all i use and unless you can find a more durable rod for less money, i would suggest giving this bad boy a try.
