Shakespeare Ugly Stik Travel Spin Rod
If you’re an angler who enjoys travelling for your spin and lure fishing but you’re tired of accepting the compromise between portability and quality then this is the ideal rod for you. The Shakespeare Ugly Stik Travel Spin is the perfect angling companion for the roving fisherman or woman. With a length of 6ft 6 inches and a pack-down size of only 54cm this rod can even fit into Ryanair’s famously stingy carry-on luggage requirements! This makes this the ideal rod for the angler who likes to travel light and, considering this rod’s budget price, this is the perfect tool for a low cost angling holiday.
Even for a Shakespeare rod this Ugly Stik Travel Spin is an especially slim rod! This is due to the Howald processing in the blank construction, which ensures the rod can retain all its slenderness without loosing any of its durability. Unlike other rods, which you almost feel you have to bubble wrap between sessions to ensure they won’t sustain any damage, the Ugly Stick Travel Spin is very hard wearing and perfect for the kind of intensive conditions you might put it through on a long weekend away on the bank.
The rod offers an ultra-lightweight graphite reel seat fitting. Graphite is most commonly used in the construction of top end fishing reels as it offers high rigidity and torque resistance without adding unnecessary weight or bulk – this makes it the perfect material for reel seat construction. The guides of the rod are lined in order to ensure that they are suitable for use with a variety of different line types and they are also single legged to keep them as compact as possible for transportation. This rod is rated with an optimal casting weight of between 5g and 15g and is finished with an EVA handle.
