The Shakespeare Ugly Stik Elite Ice Spinning Rod is another in the long line of Ugly rods built tough to handle almost anything you can throw at it. The combination of graphite and fiberglass creates a lighter weight, strong, yet sensitive rod blank while the Elite’s rod tip maximizes strength where it’s needed while still delivering sensitivity to the lightest strikes. This Ugly Stik ice fishing rod uses one-piece stainless steel Ugly Tuff guides, so you won’t have any annoying insert pop-outs to deal with while trying to fish or later off the ice at home. The rod is light, thanks also to a cork split-grip handle that distributes weight at two points for balanced one-handed ice fishing. For legendary toughness that you’ve come to expect from the name, get the Shakespeare Ugly Stik Elite Ice Spinning Rod for your on-ice winter pursuits this season.
