The first casting rod I ever bought was a pistol grip Ugly Stik when I was just starting out buying equipment of my own. I only bought it cause I was unaware that there were different styles and I didn't pay attention. Another mistake I made with that one is the length. At only 5'6", and having the famous Ugly Stik flimsy tip, I cannot cast it well. So, I dislike it and therefore put my reel onto a Berkley Cherrywood HD with a normal length grip.
I would like to sell the Ugly Stik as I haven't used it in years.

I'm building a couple of rods for my grand daughters. The youngest is getting a pistol grip.

I still fish a couple of these rods, but one of them was a Christmas present 35 years ago. I use them to pitch texas rigged worms and jigs. A 5 footer is great for underhand pitching.
