Was over at the local hardware/sporting goods store looking through the picked-over selection of rods when I saw a rod I'd passed over before: It was a Pinnacle "Pro Power Point" 5' one-piece ultralight spinning rod. Made by Shakespeare, this rod has the same construction and warranty as Ugly Stick. The price: $20.99 AND... Attached to the rod was a rebate coupon for ten dollars off with proof-of-purchase and UPC code. An Ugly Stick rod for $10.99? Hell yeah! I'll bite!
