I recently noticed that big shops like Bass Pro, Cabelas and TackeDirect do not sell Tica rods. Only Cabelas has UEHA series but nobody has UGSA except for a few small private sellers.

Not sure but the Tica Wasabi rod is awesome. I'm surprised it didn't catch on more.

Maybe enough people realized that there rods are composed of low quality components. U get what ya pay for . They use super cheap ; basically disposable guides and cheap reel seats on most of their models. The blanks themselves are definelty sensitive , but they break easy . Myself and others I fish with have had nothing but bad experiences . Just can't get past those cheap o guides ...

Cheap o guides arn't necessarily a bad thing. Replacing broken ones is how I learned to wrap rods! LOLShades


If you don't run out of bait or beer. How do you know when you're done fishing?

I know they ain't no lami but I bought a tica tc2 8' rod last season to have as a beater rod and I ended uP fishing it all season and put over 500 bass and blues on it and really love the rod. Paired witha penn sargus is a great combo for under 150$ .
