Hey guys, I've been fishing with a 2 piece 7 uglystick BWS for fishing from the surf, pier, canal, inlets, and more.
I remember at one point getting an 8ft or 7.6ft 1 piece thinner ugly stik from walmart that could cast 1/4-3 oz waaaaaay farther than the original, unfortunately one of it's guides broke and I returned it.

I'd like any suggestions on a 7-10ft rod that can cast 1/2-3 oz pretty far out, the price range is $40-120.

(I know that there are many other factors in long casting but I'd just like some rod advice):flyfish:

Thanks for the advice Jake. I'll be putting this in my top 3 choices for when I finally buy.

I did look at some Okuma rods, but either I looked at the bad ones or the rods are of lower quality than I used to think. But for any future readers, I recommend as decent surf rods;

The cabela whuppin and salt striker rods

Uglystik bigwater and GX2 rods

And the Tica dolphin rods

I find that these are very nice quality rods at good prices

Fish on!
