Ugly Stik Carbon Catfish Spinning Rod

Here's one to think about and almost unheard of for catfishing.  Normally people want the fiberglass poles that bends for catfishing.  Well this one is graphite so it's more like just for normal lure fishing and stuff.  Unfortunately they gone back to using just stainless steel line guides with no inserts.  Sure it's more reliable for tough treatment, but that also means it will shred your braid lines more so too.  Guess what also, the price hike on these rods.  They expected you to pay a retail of $90. 

Weird lengths available in MH 7'6" and H 9'6" are gonna be different for comparison of other rods. 

Compared to the old Ugly Stick Catfish rod in white that retailed for $50.  The old one had ceramic inserts plus glow inserts in the upper tip section, while current model went to trash with plain stainless steel line guides and no inserts.

Which is kind of a duplicate of the standard white Catfish rod, only they expanded with additional longer lengths available in 9', 10', and 12' lengths and it's orange colored or copper orange.  While getting an increased price tag of $60.

I was thinking about checking out some updated products but with the cheaper stainless steel line guides, nah nope.  Unless one wants to replace their braid lines often.

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.
