Product Specifications

Each Shakespeare Ugly Stick goes through a rigorous design and testing phase to ensure that every rod that leaves the manufacturer will be able to withstand the tough punishment anglers can put them through.  They are designed with the Howald Process Double Built blanks and patented Ugly Stick Clear Tip to guarantee strength and sensitivity under any conditions.  The Ugly Tuff EVA grips and reel seat insert help keep the rod comfortable all day long.  Twist lock reel seats and black stainless steel guides with aluminum oxide inserts are standard on almost every model.  The ultralight models range in length from 4’8” to 7’0” giving you a few choices for which rod to match to the type of fishing you’re doing.

What I Think

Everyone, and possibly their brother, has seen the Ugly Stik commercials.  You know the ones, where the anglers wife threatens that he’s not going fishing that day and proceeds to attempt to destroy his Ugly Stik fishing rod by running over it, feeding it to the dog, trying to bend it in half, and then sticking it into a trash compactor.  You know how it ends, too.  The angler takes his rod out of the trash compactor, puts his fishing hat on, and heads out the door with his dog.  Simply put, it is almost impossible to break a Shakespeare Ugly Stik fishing rod.

When it comes to sensitivity, and strength in one package, Shakespeare delivers with their ultralight models of Ugly Stiks.  If you’ve never fished with one, it may be time to pick up one of these rods.  Especially since they are so easy on your budget and deliver so well on the performance.
