    Bought one today, will try it on Thursday. Anybody fishing this rod? If so, what length and action?

    I've got one in medium action, with a penn 9M reel on it, and so far it's held up really well. I picked it up back during the winter. The guy I bought it from said if I had trouble, he could replace it instantly, instead of returning it to the factory, like most of them.

    I have a couple of them, they are 7ft med. action. They are the same rod as the ugly stick catfish rod, lay them side by side and the only diff. is the wrapping. They even have the same warranty. I have use them for a couple of years, landed some big flatheads with them, they seem to be very good rods for the money.
