Ugly Stik Pink Fishing Rod
Ugly Stik is the innovative brand of fishing rod produced by Shakespeare and available from the Fishing Tackle Shop. Initially produced in 1977, Ugly Sticks have been developed for more than three decades to craft a number of fantastic ranges.
For the female angler, there is a dedicated range of rod called the Ugly Stik Pink. As the name would indicate one would assume that the whole rod would be pink...and it used to be in previous models. However, feedback suggested to the supplier that ladies did not like the sparkling pink style chosen to create a decidedly feminine appearance. So, Instead they have re-created the old bright pink model and given it a much classier look. The rod is now black and sports a couple of pink trimmings. Now you can fish in style without having a totally embarrassing out there pink design.
Like all of the other Ugly Stiks, rods from the Pink range are also crafted through Shakespeare’s innovative Triple Built Howald construction process. This entails wrapping parallel fibers that are infused with special pigmented resin wrapped around a fiberglass inner core to craft robust yet flexible, sensitive blanks.
