    I have two of the one piece ugly stick catfish rods. On one is an abu 6000 and on the other is an Abu 6500. I like them very well so far. I have not tangled with a big cat with them yet so I can't say how they will perform when the real pressure is on.

    I've got another 6000 that I'm gonna put on another UglyStik catfish rod. I plan on getting a 6500 and doin the same thing with it.

    So the 2 piece Ugly Stiks hold up pretty good too? I've been thinking about trying them also.

    I'd say just get the Ugly Stik Catfish rod and put an Abu 6000 on it... or a 6500, but they cost more than the 6000...

    I had a 2 piece and returned it for the 1 piece both 7ft. MH power , i personally feel more confident with the 1 piece rods . As far as reels i use a penn 9 but do own a abu 6000c that balances quite nicely also , any reel in the 13-15 oz, range semms to balance nicely with that particular model ugly cat , and again the penn 9 is just my preferance .

    I prefer the one piece rods, myself. Am going to buy a Jeep Cherokee from my nephew before long and will be able to get to more isolated areas better than my pickup. Bad thing is the Jeep doesn't lend itself to 7' rods very easily so was thinking about getting a few 2 pc rods to carry around in it. if I can find some good ones, that is.

    if your jeep cheroke has a luggage rack on top of it as most of them do you might be able to bungie your rod to it.i used to do that when i had a chevy blazer.

    I have 8 ft in both the one and two piece versions. I catch more big trees than I do big fish but with 65lb Power pro you can horse a 24 ft pontoon around with a ugly stick of either type. I would probably go with the one piece if you don't need the take down feature. I sometimes need that with the 8 ft rod if i want to stow it crossways in the motor home. I really like the 8 ft MH version the best.

    have used ulgy sticks for years. have cought a number of 9-10 lb cats with my 7 ft med 2 piece rod. bought a new 7 ft 2 piece med ulgy stick lite this summer and have landed catfish, pickerl, perch, and my largest large mouth bass with it. it feels light and has a strong back and is real nice to handle. will be buying more ulgy stick lites.:big_smile:

    I use both one and 2 piece uglystik rods. When I fish out of my boat I use one piece rods. Space is not a problem in the boat. However, If I'm just going to fish for a little while from the bank I have 2 piece rods to use because they fit in my small car.

    I say, "Do what you wanna do"....My advice, however, is a tiger lite one piece with an Abu 6500iC3....Like other's, I have more confidence in one peice rods, but own several two peice that's never gave me any problems.....Dwight
