I dont have the one your considering but i do have a mh spinning rod rated for 8-17lbs. Best all around rod I have. Cant go wrong with Ugly Stik. Save your receipt. If anything breaks within five years they will replace the whole rod.
I have two of these rods. I use them striper fishing and they hold up well snaging bunker and jigging avas. One rod has a 550 Penn on it and the other has a Torium. Only draw back I had to put Gimbals on both rods I don't think they make them with gimbals now.
I like mine bwcl 2200 7' 1 piece action heavy 14-40 lb test line great match for small inshore reel such as my swedin Abu 7000 big game. I use it for fluking , bass or anything inshore. If you hold one, you will know it was made for braid:thumbsup:
