      Well it has to depend on where your fishing and what your fishing for.
      Me personally, I prefer to use my fly-rod, just on account of all the action and plus, I dont really GO after anything thats bigger than a largemouth or a really huge brown trout.
      But if I had to choose for any other type of rod, it would have to be anything made by Shakespere or Abu Garcia. I have fished with these types of rods my entire life and also has my father. They are great and are reliable for years.

          I use Ugly Sticks with either Quantum or Pfluger reels.

            I built a 9' #9 flyrod from my selection of the parts I wanted (not a kit) to fish big, windy, west coast rivers. It is a pleasure to use and the results have been most encouraging.

              I guess I need to grow up (not really) but I absolutely love my Lamiglas Cascade Pro. It's 8'6" medium/light action and can handle 20# steelies. it performs like nothing else I've ever held. Oh, and I use a spinning reel.

                I have this old 5.5' Daiwa ultralight, and it has hauled in a lot of fish, most of them "too big" for an UL rod.

                One time in Devil's Hole near Niagara falls we were jigging for bronzebacks. We caught some big ones, but we ended up catching more and bigger freshwater drum (or sheepshead, or whatever you like to call them) than I have ever seen. Those things can fight! The rod survived that, plus quite a few big northerns out of the Connecticut River that I caught "by accident". If you fish for perch in spring there, hold onto your butt. You might catch a small perch, only to have it gobbled by a jumbo pike on a feeding rage.

                      UGLY STIK CANNOT BE BEAT FOR PRICE. john Merwin did a test on rod break strenght on 5 fishing poles awhile ago, the ugly stick is the only one that didnt break at 55 POUNDS!!!

                        Pfluegger reels; ugly stick rods for the most part. My snagging/river rods and reels are shimano.

                          Ugly Stick makes a great all around rod.

                          Berkley Reflex Rods are great for catfishing, 8-9 ft model has never let me down.
