has anyone tried the Berkley Ultra Lite Trout Dough Rod? Saw them advertised and thought I might give it a try. So, I ordered one. I haven't been able to try it yet and probably won't be to a trout stream until September. Anyway, it is fiberglass and I do like fiberglass rods. It has kind of a full flexing action and it feels great to just whip it around. I also like the funky green color. For the price, it will be one heck of a rod if it fishes as good as it feels.

As a guy who loves small tight quarters streams, a 4'6" ultra light sounds great, but for 40 bucks you can get a 5' UL ugly stik, so I don't know that I see the draw on this one

It'd be great for shore stuff for stocked lakes with powerbait or crawlers, but it'd be far too whippy for my taste in terms of throwing spinners or spoons. If you want a stream rod, I'd go with a light power, fast action rod, length depending on size of stream. I have a 5.5 foot St Croix Premium.

I paid less than $30 for mine and it is 5'6". I already have a 5' Ugly Stick, but one cannot have too many rods.
