    Okay. I decided to order a couple of Ambassador 6500's. I decided a while back that I was going to get a couple of the white catfish Ugly Sticks. I was seeing them in every local store. Last night I decided to grab a couple before I ordered my reels, and to my surprise, I can't find any of those rods anywhere. Does anyone know if they're being discontinued?

    Thanks,

    I doubt that they have been discontinued. They are pretty popular around here. Retailers are probally just not re-ordering much stock till toward the spring.

    :D Did not see them the first time :D. I think I will get two of the 8 footers with two 6500s should be a good set up.

    Thanks,

    My local Walmart has them..I have a couple and they are decent rods...I would not call them a big fish rod, but they will handle cats in the 30-lb range fairly good.

    If I caught in the 20-lb range I would be happy if it broke :rolleyes:. Walmart had some but all out plus walmart doesn't support the B.O.C. LOL.

    Been hearing great things about Gators Custom Rods so I sent him an e-mail. So before I buy anything I'll wait to hear from him.

    Thanks,

    B.T. I've been thinking about those Gator rods myself and from what I hear you can't go wrong with one of his rods.

    However for a 2nd or 3rd rod,you can't beat the Catfish ugly stick for it's price.

    I have an old 20 plus years Abu Garica 7 foot rod that I love it has never let me down. I can't find anything that feels like it these days. I've been thinking about asking Jim if he can make a copy of that rod for me. I've even give thought of sending him my rod so he can get a feel of just what it is that I want. If you go with a Gator rod let me know what you think about it.

    I have a Abu Garica 55G spinning reel I've been thinking about matching it with my 8 foot ugly stick. I've had it for a while just never used it,it's just waiting to be used like all the others reels As I type this I can see 6 Abu reels that I've never used. Man I think I need more rods now.LOL
