    Hi Mark!
    I have never used the ugly stick catfish stick, but I do own four other ugly sticks and that are excellent fishing rods. I still have my original ugly stick that I bought 25 years ago with the Penn 440SS. Should rod will last a long time.

    I have a couple of them in 7' med/heavy. They work just fine. I landed a 47.9 lb bluecat on one of them last Nov. :smile2:

    I have two 8' M/H Ugly Stick Catfish rods and love them. They are both about 6 years old now and have Abu 6500c3s on them. Great outfits!! Very Happy With Them!!

    I really like my ugly stik catfish rod, but I love the ugly stick tiger rods more. Both great for cats.:wink:

    Ugly's only weakness is also it's great strength: no graphite.

    I love the feel of graphite rods...they feel light, and almost alive, but they won't endure the abuse that an Ugly will. My Uglies have logged a lot of miles in the back of my Polaris, over some pretty rough country, and have never let me down.

    Go Ugly early.:smile2::wink:

    I have since stopped using them for fishing on the Mississippi, but for lakes, I love them! I bought 6 of them for 20.00 a piece at Walmart a couple years ago (red tagged)! I havent had ANY problems with them.:wink:

    I have several of the white ugly stik catfish rods, they are a good rod in my opnion...I dont use them a whole lot cause I am usually slinging 8-0zs of weight...But I am sure they are capable of handling big fish.

    Yeah, okay, now... theres a complaint I have! They don't do as well as I'd like for slinging heavy baits/weight.

    I have one paired up with a catmax reel from basspro, love it. Now, if your catchin small cats with it, it will make it less fun because its so easy to get them in, but its sweet when you get a big cat on one.
