also the action is slow or "whippy," which you may or may not like over a fast action

they cast really good and will last a long time....
Now if you are thinking about getting the surf custum uglystik that runs close to
$100 there are better choices out there....i believe there are a few threads
already posted on El cheapo rods...just do a search for that topic
here in the main forum...

I have a Shakespeare USCSSP 11102M Ugly Stik Custom Surf
It is a great rod for a beginner that will use it for BOTH bait and lures. The one I bought had a 7 year warranty which was good for me as the 2nd year it cracked and Shakespeare replaced it no questions asked.
I tried a dBlue DB07CSSP902K--M 9' Surf Spinning Rod and honestly I like my ugly stik better. The dBlue is now a back up rod.

The 8'6" is a good back bay beater something to leave in the car

I broke an Ugly Stick by dropping a big CRT TV on it. Probably not a common hazard.
