I fish off the jetty in WinchesterBay, Oregon. I've used Ugly Stik for years. I recently purchased the 6.6 MH. The first Black Bass I hooked in to was between 4-5 pounds. I have to admit I was a bit nervous to pull that bad boy up because I was 100% sure of the rods capability. I was impressed, it flexed and I landed the fish. Moments later, I thought I had a lingcod on, it felt big. As the fish began to surface, I realized it was a massive bass. I for sure thought the rod was going to snap if I tried to lift it up from the rocks. I had no choice but to test it out. With my heart pounding, I lifted the rod. It flexed to max capacity, bent all the way over, tip almost to butt of rod. I grab the line and land a 8 lber. I was sold. I am now looking to purchase 3 more of these excellent rods for my kids so they can enjoy the pleasure of fishing with me and know that they too can have the confidence I have in this wonderful product.
Thank you for making a excellent product,
