Have boated several Stripers in the 30 to 40 pound range with no problem. Rod has action light enough to cast 1 ounce lures well and the back bone to handle large fish. I own a lot of fishing tackle, Some of it is expensive such as Lamiglas, St Croix, and high end Diawa rods. I also own several Ugly Stick Rods. In my expierence over the years, the Ugly Sticks perform and hold up as well or better than rods costing 5 or 6 times as much. You can't go wrong! Good luck out there!
Pros:Light weight, great action, amazingly low cost
Cons:not a thing
