I understand both rods are low-end, but I only get to the surf one week out of the year and don't want to spend a lot of money. I'm considering the 10' and 12' casting versions. Targeting medium sharks off the beach. Of the two, which would be your choice and why? What's been your experience? I've searched around and can't find a good comparison post.

Are there any other 10'-12' rods in this price range that I'm over looking?

Thanks for your help.

I fish with ugly stik rods and have yet to find a fish that it couldn’t handle. I’m sure there’s a fish out there that would destroy it but I assume the reel would go first and I like how forgiving they are.

Classy fish are not impressed with cheap rods. :no:

You can only catch classy, respectable fish on Van Staals and Loomises. :yes:


However, for your average fish, a 302 and an Ugly work pretty good.

I have a 10 & 11 ft beefstick. Can't complain about either. Shop around and you can find them for half the price of an uglystick
