it won't handle eight ounces

It says 5 to 8 oz, but it'll never do 8. If you want to sling 5 a better distance, it'll work, but get yourself a proper surf rod. This isn't it.

Ugly Stik - Beautiful Deal
January 22, 2021
Quality surf rod. Excellent company to buy from. Action is great. Rod handles well. Load it up and sling it out of sight. In fact, think I'l buy a 2nd one from Tackle Direct right now.
ProsUgly Stik quality - you know what you are getting. Tackle Direct is the best place to buy... again you can count on them.

15ft surf fishing rod
November 21, 2020
This rod paired with a daiwa 8000 make a great casting combination for land based shark fishing. The 15ft is longer and larger to transport. But I also have a few 12ft versions and the extra 3ft does help with casting. I have not been able to find a better rod for the price.

Best rod for the money out there. Can’t break them and if you do they have a great warranty

Tough rods and great value
February 6, 2020
I have two of these that I use mostly for casting, bottom fishing and some trolling. The rods are very tough and for $60 they are a great value. I've overloaded these rods many times when trolling and pulling up ghost crab pots and they don't break.

Love it. Wish we could get the rest of the Ugly Stik's ordered. Thank you.
ProsGreat value. I'm able to try a variety of lengths and actions of rods without breaking the bank.
