Ugly Stik GX2 Spinning Pack Rod
So far so good
I have to say that Shakespeare Ugly Stick has been a favorite of mine and my fishing friends and hopefully soon my children's go to rode. Not that you shouldn't try other rods and systems. I'm a man that likes variety and choices. But I always find myself comparing other rods and rod combos to the Shakespeare UglyStick. I just got the new GX2 and can't wait to try it out. At first glance it catches your eye with the black matte clean look backed by the red and black chrome accents. But you know that's not all looks, it's new Shakespeare graphite and fiberglass technology. I'm sure with this upcoming fishing season it's gonna be a knockout!

My First Ugly Stik
In the past I have fished just to fish...then my boyfriend introduced me to the Ugly Stik and I got one of my own for Christmas 2013. I could not WAIT to get it in the water! It has the perfect sensitivity and strength for catching those 8 and 9 lb catfish we like to catch! Mine is Medium weight which makes it easy for me to handle and yet still cast out pretty far. I am proud to say my first Ugly Stik was the GX2, and after I have fished with it, within 2 weeks I had to purchase the older Ugly Stik Ultra Light, and love it as well. I am so impressed with the Ugly Stik, I can't imagine fishing with any other! Keep up the good work and great product!

These rods are worthless compared to there other rods. Cheap design I watched mine snap in two.

bought 2, gx 2 rods last january 2014, 7 ' med. spin, then 1 more 5' 6" med lite spin later in the spring. began fishing about april. By Aug. the the rod tip top and the rod eyes had grooves cut in them due to the mono line running thru them. Like the rod action but the eyes are no good. I will not purchase another unless the rod tip and eyes are changed.
