that is a pretty wide range you want to cover !! a rod that will throw 2 oz will not throw 8 ounces !!
......others where better at getting out was I wrong?
nope there are a lot of 'other' rods out there that are better
Is the Ugly the best for the money?

There are two OM 12' surf rods, a light version as well as a heavy version. The Ocean Master light is rated from 3oz-6oz. The heavy one is rated from 4oz-8oz.
However, both those rods will throw a little more weight than they're rated.
I don't know of a 12' (or bigger) factory rod that will throw 2oz-8oz.

A combo set (still avail. from couple of sites - google) of Daiwa Emcast and Ocean Master looked very good at around $150.
You could end up with a nice set plus spool of 65# braid and a plug or two...
Good luck and cheers!
