Very reliable, Great Value!

I have been using these downrigger rods for several years now as a full time salmon guide in Puget Sound and they have stood up to the challenge. The first batch I got back around 2011 and we did manage to break a couple when setting hard off the downrigger ball and broke a couple ceramic guides. But the last three years the rods seem even tougher and haven’t broken one. Also the new titanium guides are much preferred for me as they stand up to 50 lb braid and don’t break out. Overall these are some of the best down rigger rods that can be bought for the money.

What we wanted

We like the rod we purchased, but it arrived in a broken flimsy package. We are a little nervous about it being bent/stepped on/broken during shipping. I know they are supposes to be tough rods so I guess time will tell... and at least it has a warranty.

Awesome rod

I've used ugly stika for years and I still use them today. After 20 plus years guiding I've yet to break one unbelievable. I pair the 8 6 light action rod with a abu Garcia line counter reel to tame even the biggest stripers out lake has to offer. The action makes fighting fish very user friendly. I will say I dislike the thicker butt. With my tube rod holders I have to cut it off but it's still works great.
Great rods great price own at least a dozen Shakespeare rods.


Very solid. I took it deep see fishing, caught some snapper and 20 lb grouper without a problem. I got the 6’6” it’s bit heavy. My next one will be 5’8”
