The spinning reel is the first Shakespeare® reel designed specifically for Ugly Stik. The reel is made from glass filled nylon featuring a double anodized aluminum spool with oversized bail wire for added durability, three or four total bearings for smoother gear feel, two pinion bearings that reduce overall wear on the reels internal parts, and soft touch handle knobs for added comfort.
The GX2 rod retains all the strength and reliability that Ugly Stik is legendary for, while adding a few new features that make it better than before. 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.
