    I perfer big ugly sticks to do my catfishin', but I ran into another rod that looks as if it's as good as the ugly stick. It's called a "whuppin' stik" and I found it in a cabelas fishing catalog. They're pretty cheap, but I've found you usually get what you pay for, with few exceptions. The one that appealed to me the most was an 8 foot Heavy action casting rod with 14-50 lb test line capacity. It also says a bunch of mumbo-jumbo about "advanced polymer technology that greatly enhances the strength of the fiberglass blank" It has a twist-lock reel seat and stainless steel guide frames. If you could explain what all that means, that'd help me out too. lol, as I am illiterate to the "enhanced fishing rod technology" vocabulary:embarassed:. Anyways, any info would help. Thanks a lot. And tight lines to all.

    They are ok, but I don't like two piece rods.
