Looks and performs like it should cost much more.

I bought this rod to use on a recent Lower Keys fishing trip I took with some of my friends. We fish hard from AM to PM , and my new Ugly Stick Custom Spinning Rod performed flawlessly. I teamed it up with a Fin-Nor Offshore Series spinning reel, loaded with 50 lb Power Pro briad and had no trouble pulling those big spapper and grouper up out of the reef. My buddies were impressed with the custom finish on the rod and couldn't believe the price. Overall , you cant find a spinning rod in this price range that you can count on to haul big fish off the bottom without the fear of it breaking. I have ordered another USC 1170-H and plan to use it inshore for big Snook and Redfish.
Pros:Quality for the price
