Game fishing is a tough business that requires tough equipment, and nothing is as tough as the Ugly Stik Bluewater series. Built using the Howald Process, with longitudinal graphite fibers and a triple weave construction provides the foundation of strength that the bluewater series is built on. With unparalleled excellence in game rod design the legendary Bluewater series is stronger, lighter and more responsive than ever before. Add to this, hi-grade Fuji components and AFTCO rollers on selected trolling models and you have a range of rods that is ready to be fished to the gamefishing limit. All Ugly Stiks feature blank-through-handle construction for added strength and sensitivity, Fuji guides and components, under-wrapped guides for durability and longevity and all Blanks are fully coated with epoxy for extra protection from the sunâ€™s damaging UV rays.
