Built with the toughest rod construction in the world, Rhino GlowTip rods feature two high-strength materials: E-Glass surrounding a Graphite core. This construction method makes them virtually indestructible, while at the same time providing the sensitivity you need to detect even the slightest strike. No other rod design provides the angler with this level of confidence.

I'm comparing this to an Ugly Stik medium ,6', 2 piece and by itself. First I must say I'm an Ugly Stik fanboy that just "wanted to try out the wannabe side it was less expensive". The casting , though a little lighter action, was actually a little more stiff , giving me a more accurate cast ability in wind and close to overhanging trees while bank fishing with ultra light type tackle (Crickhoppers by Rebel). At 6' is still not as precise as my 5'ultra light Ugly Stik in very tight areas casting side to side to really get under but casting out beyond the trees and reeling back in it was fine. I don't even use my U S medium for such fishing. I've got it set up with a Lews Tournament Speed 200 reel with 8# mono line and the balance is very nice , making casting/fishing for hours no big deal . I fished Sunday after work from about 2pm to 6pm using just the rod/reel to put it through its paces. I tried some different lures ranging from 1/8oz jigs to 3/8 oz top water...
Awesome rod! I've had one for years and it's survived drops, being stepped on, and even shut in my tailgate. Bought another one for my wife to use since I liked it so much. I definitely recommend this rod to anyone who needs a tough rod that will take the abuse but still have good action when out on the water.
NOT indestructible! Third time I used it, it broke. Not at the connection point of the 2 rod pieces, but at a solid part of the rod. Wasn't a large fish, but the rod just snapped. Go for the Ugly Stick. The Rhino just isn't worth. Very unhappy with this rod.
