good morning to all anglers!!!!!!!!

Recently i saw a Shakespeare Ugly Stick Big Water Rod, and i must say it was impressive, according to the features and pics.

One thought though which lingered in my mind was the tag:
Made in China

Now, i have heard of American and other equipments which were manufactured in China, that did not last long.

Kindly suggest your enlightened minds to this topic.
Should I or Not :-(

I have a 'Made in China' Shakespeare rod. And I have used (abused) it for the last 6 years. It is indestructible.

Allan,

Use the Ugly Stik without any worry, I have lots of them and
haven't broken a single one over the years.

They are tough and ideal for Indian conditions.

Thank you all.

That's why forums are very helpful.

The rod will be fine, just make sure the guides are of good quality. Something like Fuji or a similar brand will be fine.
