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 stiks are using complete bottom of the barrel guides which can not hold up to even light use.
After paying $27 to have my tip replaced (on a $43.00 rod...) the others were grooved to the point where again, the line was too frayed to not snap when forming a knot. Completely unimpressed and disappointed. Get a quality rod with quality inserts or you'll be spending more, not even in the long term, but the short term...
The rod itself is still basically a flexible indestructible fiberglass rod, but with the guides being so soft and quick to groove, it doesn't matter how strong the rod is if your line frays the second it passes through.
My review is. Buyer beware. If you are getting very specific about what you want your tackle to do, don't buy these rods sight unseen.
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.
Sorry, it is just not better than a regular ugly stik.
Buy a Berkley Lightning rod for less money. It is simply a. much better rod.

I'm subtracting 1 star for inaccurate description:
The correct line rating for this model (USESP702UL) is 2-6lb. line.
