    I have seen several ads for whuppin stiks. They seem to be cheaper ugly stiks. and since i love ugly stiks I was wonder if anybody knows anything of the whuppin stik. Thanks in advance!

    I bought my wife one a couple of weeks ago. We ain't got to use it yet but I'm impressed. I'm a die hard Ugly Stik fan and I would not be the least bit surprised if it is made by Shakespeare. I guess time will tell but 20 dollars ain't a bad price.

    They have a slower action than the uglys but seem tough.

    I have a 8ft heavy action whuppin stick that i've fished with for a year and a half. so far I have no complaints, I landed a 53lb flattie with it last summer in heavy current and it held up to the pressure of the 80lb braid I was using.

    I checked them out once...the one I checked was a casting rod. I felt there was way to few guides for the action on the rod. If you ever use Braid on the casting version be prepared for damage to the rod. JMHO

    I bought five 7 foot ugly stik blanks four years ago and built them with several extra guides 3 of them are med. Heavy and I use them on the river and when drift fishing quite a bit.

    I'll get some up in a couple of days - most of my rods are at the river.
