      Comments about Shakespeare Ugly Stik Catfish Spinning Rod, 8:

      Shakespeare/ugly stik did an great job with this rod.I already own the 7ft spinning model and loved it so I picked up a couple of the 8ft spinning models to get me out a little further.I fish alot for bigger chanel cats (up to 20 lbs) with the occasional flathead and the rods handle everything just fine. I fish with everything from chicKen liver to whole live 4 to 6in bluegill for catfish. I throw anywhere from 1 to 4 ounce no roll sinkers with them and have had no problems with any aspect of the rods.

          Comments about Shakespeare Ugly Stik Catfish Spinning Rod, 8:

          Its a Ugly Stik so it has the great quality and assurance it will work, the length works well in the Delta, for a bigger rod the tip is sensative. I paired it up with a Penn Sargus 6000 perfect match.I am going to buy two more of these for christmas gifts
          The only thing that I can find a con about is the glow in the dark tip doesn't work well

              I purchased a pair of these rods for surf fishing North Carolina. The Striper series rods were out of stock and one piece are difficult to transport. They performed well with larger fish (Blues,Rays,Sharks)and were sensitive enough to feel small spots and mullet.
