Model: Balance 8ft General Purpose Combo

We all need a general purpose outfit in our kit. So why not go with the pedigree of Ugly Stik and make it something special. After all, it’s our general purpose outfit that we will most likely bear the brunt of much of the work.

The 8 foot, two piece rod is all about flexibility of application. With a line class of 5 to 8kg, you also have access to a broad range of fish species without being underpowered for bigger fish such as Mulloway and without losing sensitivity for the smaller, more common targets such as Bream and Flathead.

It’s the perfect weapon for fishing the wharfs and piers. It’s the harbour master, works brilliantly on your average break wall and will be ideal for targeting bigger species in our lakes. When conditions suit, you will also employ this combo from the rocks.

The 5000 size reel, a medium size reel, matches perfectly to this rod and, like the rod, it is a master of wearing many hats. With 5 bearings it’s as smooth as silk and has more than enough power for dealing with sizable fish like big Aussie Salmon yet enough finesse for casting baits out at for bream and flathead.

Fishing Applications

For a rod that does a number of applications and has the strength you need to handle a wide variety of fish species from the rocks, break walls, harbours, lakes and even rivers consider this fishing outfit.

Model: Balance 10ft Beach/Rock fishing Combo

Once you hit the 10 foot range of fishing rods you have yourself a dedicated surf and rock outfit. While some will argue that 10 foot does not quite cut it length wise in terms of surf access, we would beg to differ. In most instances, 10 foot is more than enough to handle much of what the surf is dishing out. It is, of course, a very standard length for the rock hopper.

When you’re on the ocean rocks tossing unweighted Cunje at Bream and Drummer, this is the sort of rod you need to handle the extreme fight as you wrestle your prey from rock shelves, weed entanglements, reef and snag. You will also need this kind of strength for lifting these fish up onto the rocks. It’s worth noting – It’s the ocean rocks where you find the monster Bream in excess of 40cm. Remember, Bream grow to in excess of 2kg. You won’t want to miss one of these guys because you were under powered.

The 6500 reel is perfect for the job. With 5 bearings and a hefty spool to load on heaps of your preferred string, you can tackle big runners like Kingfish and Mulloway, confidently knowing you have the back up to turn them toward the rocks.

In combination you have all the casting power you need to reach the feeding spot. When the shoal or gutter seems just that little bit too far out, you will be pleased to know you have the length to reach it. You will also have enough speed in your hands to toss out metal slices a mile from shore in the hunt for our more dynamic surface feeders like Aussie Salmon, Tailor, Bonito, Mackerel and the like.
