    Okay guys I narrowed it down. Ive been looking at cabelas. Which is a better spinning combo? Mitchell® Avocet®/Cherrywood Spinning Combo or Shakespeare® Ugly Stik® Spinning Combo? Pros and Cons of each? Thanks

    I would go with the ugly stick

    Cherrywood, from Berkley I believe, looks better
    Mitchell not a big fan due to quality

    Ugly stick heck try and break that sucker and still sensitive enough

        For 50 bucks it probaly won't be a rod that you will baby and keep from being thrown around. So go with the ugly stick.

          I agree with the Ugly Stik crowd. They are not terribly sensitive but they sure are rugged. It's my favorite rod when you know the trail to the fishing hole might be a little hairy.

            I don't have any experience with Ugly Stik, but I have had much experience with Shakespeare. I have been impressed with Shakespeare, but not favorably. Seriously, I would really discourage from buying a Shakespeare...

                Go with the ugly stik but put your own spinning reel on it. The shakespeare reel they put on their combo is junk. I have a pflueger trion on my ugly stik. Its about $30-$35 and is a smooth well built reel for an outstanding price. Depending on the ugly stik rod you get you can still have that good combo with the pflueger for about $50-$60.

                  Dollar for dollar, it is hard to beat an ugly stick. There is an old saying, the higher the price, the greater the quality. But that is not always true with the ugly stick. I have a large collection of rods from extremely expensive custom built, vintage Fenwick, vintage Lew's Speed Sticks, and all the way down to ugly sticks. I still use the ugly sticks as much as the others.
