Ugly Stik Striper Casting Rods is rated out of 5 by 40.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shad from Good rods except for the longer butt I've got 45 of these rods and I'm having to cut the extended handle/butt off all of these new rods. They will not fit into any rod holder. It stinks buying new rods and having to immediately saw 4 inches off the butt and then you have to buy caps to go on the ends. When using QuickDraw, Folbe, Atwood, Driftmaster, Santee, rod holders the butts stick so far into the boat that cannot walk around. When using in angled up rod holders for planer boards and floats the butt will prevent the rod from coming out of the holder. Great rod nonetheless but it just stinks they changed the lengths. Great improvement with the guides though

Rated 1 out of 5 by Striperrodhater from professional fishing guide I have used ugly stick rods for 35 years and have had great service from them and many customers have stopped at the tackle shop at the end of the day and bought rods. I don’t know what I will go to now with them putting that stupid gimbal knob on the handle and making the handle longer. No one likes these rods now. They want come out of rod holders.who uses a fighting belt in fresh water. I know what someone is going to say, cut it off of a new rod. I will use some ugly sticks off of my front yard oak tree before I do that. I can’t get a reply from shakespear with email or phone call. They don’t care. I could sell a 100 rods of the old style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bobby3 from Excellent Rod Love Ugly Sticks. I exclusively troll for stripers on Lake Ouachita and this was my first in medium light action. Saw a review and thought I would try them. It is too light for big stripers at 13 lbs and higher, but a blast on smaller sizes, problem is you don't get to pick what hits. I also have a pair of the same rods in medium heavy which are better for big fish. As my other rods break I am switching to Ugly Stiks. They are outstanding rods, and way better than rods costing 3 times as much. I have never broken one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by repomanpipe from great fishing rod! I wish they would have kept the end of the rod at the handle the same as the older models because the new one will not go into my rod holders that I have for them. This is a great fishing rod, but that is my only problem with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The real Jetty Wolf from can't fish any GX2's...thank goodness for STRIPERS I own dozens of striper rods. and they are my absolute favorite rod ever. The casting ML 7 footers have pulled in 30-40 pound bull Redfish. and unlike the GX2's which have those dead spots in the rod blank (hint hint shakespeare!!!) these have such a sweet bend to them. CLOSEST THING to the old black casting Ugly Stiks that made them FAMOUS (if not the same EXACT rod blanks). Don't know why the GX2's were ever even congered up, except to feel and look sooooo UN-ugly stik! When the Striper & Catfish rods, are the only real deal Ugly Stik out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sea Nymph from UNBEATABLE! I first purchased the ugly stik striper rod about 2 years ago and now own 14 of them... It is ideal for both trolling and live bait fishing for stripers, which is about the only species I fish for. High quality and I can say WITH CERTAINTY that are VERY DURABLE. I'm pretty harsh on equipment and have many times stepped on one, caught it in the door, stuck in the ceiling fan etc....... and have yet to break one and you cant beat the price... I will certainly buy more as they have certainly proved there worth to this fisherman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptClay from Best on the market. I have been using the Striper series rods for years. They have never let me down. I have used them on lakes all across the Southeast. Having the right action catches more fish. If the fish are heavily pressured the light action catches more fish. If the fish are a 100 feet deep the medium light is sometimes the better rod. Pulling freelines with herring on light line, the medium light is another good choice. You need a live bait rod for Lake Lanier, Murray, Hartwell, West Point, Cherokee, Norris, Texoma, and countless other lakes. Shakespeare has it covered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Striper Guy from Great rod made better! I have used Ugly Stik Striper rods for more than a decade now. They have always held up well except for the ceramic inserts in the eyes falling out. Now they have resolved that problem through eliminating the ceramic inserts. I'm looking forward to a another decade full of memories made with Ugly Stik.
