Ok, after reading countless posts about Ugly Sticks on here I finally went out and bought one. My only reason for not having one already is that I prefer a rod with a cork handle and all the Ugly Sticks I have ever seen have a foam handle. I was at Dick's Sporting Goods the other day and although I wasn't shopping for a new rod, I took a look at the rod selection and came across a 8 1/2' med. action Ugly Stick with a cork handle. Well it felt real nice in my hand and I thought about my B.O.C. brothers being so happy with the Ugly Sticks and I broke down and spent the money! This rod is not the Ugly Stick Lite that have the cork handle but a regular Ugly Stick. Is this something new?
