    I have the 9' and really like it unless im using it at night, its pretty hard to see. it seems to be a good rod that needs more, better eyes. i havent had any trouble with mine in the three years ive had it. its nice for the price:wink: if you night fish you might look at the king cat they seem to be a close match to the ws but their white:big_smile:

    I have 4 of them 8' heavy action casting rods rated 14 to 50 pound test line. I match them with Abu Garcia Trophy Collection 6500s reels 25 pound test line. Use them in the boat and also from the bank.I love them , work perfectly from the bank using vertical rod holders and Gama circle octopus hooks. Using mostly 2 and 3 ounce egg sinkers and cut shad, I can cast these a long distance. You can tell you have a 2 pound fish on , but can handle a 15 pound fish easily as well. I'm not in an area where there are blues or Flatheads, but for channels they are perfect. Wait a minute did I forget to tell you how much I liked these rods. I really like these rods! I've added about 2 foot of reflective tape at the tip shows up well at night with a lantern. I highly recommend these to everyone. However if you're catching 50,60,70 pound fish these might not be suitable. No problems with these so far , hold up well.

    I have two 9-ft MH spinning rods and love them. You're right, they are hard to see at night, but I fixed this by putting a wrap of reflective tape between the top 4 eyelets. They really light up when you shine a beam on them. I've paired them up with good spinning reels loaded with braided line and they cast a mile.
    I also have two of the 7-ft one piece H action saltwater Whuppin' Stick casting rods for flathead fishing. I think they compare very well to either the Ugly Stick Big Water or Tiger rods, and are about half the price. They come with a good manufacturer's warranty, too. I don't think you can go wrong with either Whuppin' Stick model. Good luck.

    i love my 8' H whoopin stick.
    I bought it at Cabela's for $10 cuz it had an insert out of an eyelet.
    I just replaced all eyes and now it is fine. I like it for the bigger fish (5lbs+) for small ones it is not sensitive enuff for me. I have caught several over 15lbs and one over 20 on this rod. The only thing i do not like is that it is 2 piece.
