WOW kinda looks like a tica. hopefully it has a more sturdy tip for the heavier baits.

They still be Ugly though..

Got the new Cabelas catalog too...

Check out the new ABU 6500 Mag reel in the catalog. My wife is offering it up to me for my birthday (along with my rod building stuff). I couldn't say no! ;)

throws smaller better

the old ugly throws 3-4 great. It handles the weight of 6 easily but the tip is just way to loose and you lose distance. They can handle lots of weight because of the double reinforcement in the blank, but that doesn't mean it works well for the weight it can handle. Example, a 12' iron rod could handle lots of weight, but it wouldn't cast far :p
