Ugly Stik® Elite Casting Rod is rated out of 5 by 135.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Everett Jones from Great pole (not a medium fast action pole) I just got this pole 7footer medium action, i took ot out yesterday i got a 2.lbs smallmouth bass. I like the pole but it's really heavy and stiff for a medium action pole when compared to my other pole and the flex at the tip is not fast enough for me to be using on a daily basis.I think this would be a great Pole if you needed a frogging pole with some 50lb braid I think that's the type of pole. So at the end of the day for fifty bucks it's a great Pole for that price and a 7-foot medium action makes a great top water or frogging fishing pole if you need to punch through some heavy cover this pole has the backbone and not much Flex to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WVbowhunter from The bomb! If you know what I mean. I've used ugly stick rods for 30 years and I've purchased about every model made over the years. In my opinion these are some of the best rods made in the industry. This new elite series is the total package combining all of the great features that ugly stick rods have provided throughout the years. Don't let the price discourage you from buying this rod, it is slightly higher than most ugly stick rods. This is the Cadillac and will compare to other rods that are priced 2 to 3 times more. Join the brotherhood! You will be a fan for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alwaysfishing from Best stick for the money I have used these rods for the past 10 years (primary rods) and have never been disappointed! I've read other reviews stating they are not sensitive- my experience has been otherwise. Very strong with a sensitive tip, what more can you ask for. The price has always been surprising for what you get. Try one and write your review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrWaSaBe from USESP602M is an Excellent all rounder + Tough as heck! + Sensitive to the lightest bites (even more than the GX2) + Lighter than the GX2 + Very fun to fight a fish on it, regardless of the size + My favorite rod, catches small fish to big ones! - Guides bend and chip out of shape if you drop your rod alot (but you shouldn't do that) - Hook holder bends out of shape I also own an ugly stik 5 foot ultra light (2pc) and 9 foot salmon rod (2pc)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ray Borbon from 7'6" Medium is great I just picked this rod up matched with a Shimano Stradic. This Ugly Stik landed Coho salmon all day long. Weights of fish were 5-12 lbs and Coho are very acrobatic and have some heart. The Elite Rod is sensitive to throw 1/4 jigs as advertised. I was using such a jig all day long and threw back many salmon. This rod is as good as my old Ugly Stik Lite Salmon/Steelhead rod. Plenty of backbone where needed and a sensitive setup. Thumbs up!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Joe1959 from Don't buy online! I bought my dad a 6'6" Medium for fathers day from a local sporting goods store and it's a great rod, everything was perfect. So, I ordered myself a 7' medium online because i couldn't find one locally. It came well packaged, however, the tip of the rod was slight bent to the left(bad blank i believe) and the 2nd to last line guide stuck out way further than the rest. Not sure whether to deal with it or go through the hassle of sending it back. Makes sure you buy this rod in store and take a good look at. They are good rods, just not the one I received from my online purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bubba fish from I bought a 7 footer, medium light, fast, 1 pc. I got this rod for my wife. Paired it with the abu garcia orra. It casts great. The fast action tip is super sensitive. I like it so much I'm keeping it !! She won't know when I swap it for a combo. This is my 4th ugly stick. I still use a 25 year old 6'6" bait casting ugly stick. Why pay $100 or more for a rod when most ugly sticks are less than $40-$60 bucks? Thank you Shakespeare !!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Walleye 29 from Ok rod I bought this a couple months ago and use it for walleye on detroit river. The End of the handle cork fell off and a guide is loose. It apears to be tough and sensitive like the old ugly sticks but the elite is a huge let down for the price it should be better than the older models. I am very disappointed in ugly stick on this model. A marketing idea that sounded great but they did not deliver on the quality they are known for.
