Ugly Stik Elite Spinning Rods

Ugly Stik Elite Spinning Rods are one of the most popular lightweight and affordable spinning rods on the market. They are designed to be tough and reliable, even when the hooked fish is much larger than anticipated.

Combination of graphite and fiberglass ensures strong, almost indestructible rods, while cork handles provide comfort even for longer fishing.

Ugly Stik Elite Spinning Rods are available in many different sizes.

Ugly Stik Elite Spinning Rods are made using 35% more graphite for strength and batter 'feel' of the line and fish, creating almost indestructible fishing rod.

We say 'almost' indestructible, because sooner or later one will hook the fish not intended for such light rod - and hopefully will land such fish.

So-called 'Clear Tip' design delivers added responsiveness, sensitivity and strength, while cork handle provides comfort during lengthy fishing sessions.

Ugly Tuff stainless steel guides eliminate insert pop-outs, provide excellent durability and can be used with all types of fishing lines, including braided fishing lines.
