The other thing, and this is a different discussion, is what materials and manufacturing methods allow the rod black to exhibit variable flex, memory, return, etc.. characteristics in different parts of the rod to get the optimized or desired performance.

The ugly sticks, often don't have this compound or variable construction - like a parabolic heel and a stiff fast action tip as one example.

There is a difference in rods and what you get for your money.

It does get closer as the price tag goes up - but at $50 rod versus a $150 rod is a BIG difference.
