We were up at Tom's place and we snapped both brands 4" down from the tip.Anyone who fishes knows that would be user error on a vertical lift when hooked however Ugly Stick nope.We went back to Ugly Stick elite same spot and actually bigger fish and didn't snap.I highly recommend Ugly Stick Elite or gx2..I have had several poles over 25 years and last summer we went out and bought 2 fenwick and 2 okuma.
The bag is perfect! It's large enough to hold all you need but not bulky that it's a bother to carry. Bought two of these bags to make emergency kits we can just grab and go.
I also use a couple of lightweight bags but this bag is so tough, durable & spacious, I prefer it over the others. Great product!. Love this tactical bag.
But other than that, I'm on to my 4th pair. Only complaint is they get rocks stuck in the sole. These shoes are my go to shoes when I take my girl (dog) for a walk. They are easy slip on and super comfy.
My first impression was that they seemed very well made. after using the shorts for over 2 months now I will definitely buy a 2nd. Worth the money.
