The GX2 rod retains all the strength and reliability that Ugly Stik is legendary for, while adding new features that improve performance and durability even more! Ugly Tech construction combines fiberglass and graphite in exactly the right proportion to render a blank that is sensitive, lighter, and virtually unbreakable. The Ugly Tuff guides are crazy slick and practically bulletproof, so that line feeds through and runs back more freely. And, as always, the rod is finished off with Ugly Stik's signature clear fiberglass tip for added power and sensitivity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seagullvsbass A little bit heavy
I'm not complaining here but the rod is a little bit heavy.
However for $40 you get a strong and sensitive rod, what more you want?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chad68 Awesome rod
I've been buying almost nothing but Ugly Stik rods since the 1980's. I went with a 6'-6" heavy action GX2 casting rod for bait (live or cut) fishing in San Pablo bay from my small 9.5' kayak. The manageable length and the 20-50 pound line rating are great. I once lost what was probably a ray on lighter medium action gear, so I decided to go all out with a heavy action setup, since I never know what I may hook into, even though I'm after stripers. I will now use lighter gear for bucktails and swimbaits only. It feels weird putting an expensive reel on a $40 rod but it's not my fault they only sell them for 40 bucks. If you like the old Ugly Stiks, you should like these new GX2's even more. The seem so much lighter than the older models.
