not designed for braided line. Rod is durable except for the tip eye if you are using a braided line. I do a fair amount of fishing and within a month the front eye has grooves notched in it from 10 lb braided line. The notches create a very abrasive surface and destroys line at a furious pace.

I lost quite a few fish and lures before it got so bad that the line instantly snapped from the fraying from … I purchased the 6’6″ 1 piece Medium spinning rod with lure range from 1/4-5/8, but as all of these ugly sticks are made with the same guides, this unfortunately apply to all of their rods. I had this rod for 2 months before the tip and 3 guides were so heavily grooved from light weight 8lb monofilament fishing line that the line was frayed to the point that it could not hold a knot. I lost quite a few fish and lures before it got so bad that the line instantly snapped from the fraying from the sharply grooved guides when forming a knot.The extremely low quality stainless steel guides will absolutely not hold up to even occasional use. My wife fishes much less than I do, and hers (6ft 2 piece Medium) are showing grooves in 3 months and it will only be a couple more months before her guides are sharp enough to cut her line as well, and she has been using 8lb fluorocarbon line. This should absolutely not happen with even a basic low grade insert but Shakespeare Ugly…

Three Stars Good rod but showed up damaged. Scratched up and eyes were bent. The way they packaged it was crap.Update: very durable rod. Have caught a number of nice sized fish to include Jack’s, Snapper & Sharks. This rod handles them all with ease and hasn’t even come close to breaking.
