    I know its just 50 bucks but i hate to throw away 50 bucks when i could just ask for help so .....
    What your experience with them? I want a 7 foot spinning rod for bass fishing off a kayak is this a good option?

    I have used an ugly stick on just about every combination you can think of. Small reels and rods to bait asters on 7 foot rods. I don' think you will be dissapointed with one. I'e got a couple here that are probably 20 years old and are still great rods. I' pick an ugly stick over any rod out there

    I'm just an occasional fisherman but most of what I have are ugly stiks because I hate fragile equipment!

    Ugly Stik has a pretty good warranty if I'm not mistaken. With that said, I've never had to return one.

    I broke a two piece catfish Ugly Stik. Walmart gave me some trouble until I found a similar rod available.

    For moving baits you might be ok. But for bottom contact where sensitivity is key, I’d definitely spend a lot more. If your a serious bass fisherman, you’ll never regret buying better quality rods.
