    That sounds like a really good deal. I bought 2 of them from wally world and they were about $30 a piece. Make sure before you buy them they check over good and nothing is wrong with them. Even if there is something wrong I'd buy them any way as Shakespeare has a lifetime waranty. Might be worth it. Can anyone else give some input on this?

    Are they Big Game catfish rods are just the catfish ugly stick? IMO they are both good rods but the Big Game rods are not real sensitive in the tip. You can see a bite though. Let me add I have both and like them both. The big game come in handy when hawg hunting.

    You're probably seeing the Berkley Big Game rods, not the Shakespeare Ugly Stick Catfish rods. $15 is a decent price for either one though.

    I don't think there is any way to go wrong for $15.00. Sounds like a really good deal. Either rod is good.

    I've never seen the white ones, but buy them. Buy all you can and sell them for a profit once Wally World is out or keep them around to give away as gifts. Once they aren't on sale anymore people will think you spent money on them.

    Yes, that's a great price. Yes, that's a great rod. Buy 2 or 3 and don't even think twice. If my Wal Mart had 'em that cheap I'd buy them all. You won't be sorry, match them up with a garcia 6500 and let 'em fly!!!

    Yeah man!! Grab all them 8' rods at $15 if they are the real white Catfish Ugly Stics. I gave $45.00 for the one I have. I think the 7' Catfish Ugly Sticks are usually $27.00 in our Walmart. Even for the Berkley Big Game rod, that's a good price. Snap 'em up!

    $15 is a killer price for that rod. You won't be dissapointed. I'd rather have a one piece but its still a tough rod.
