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.

I have been using this rod 7' medium heavy 2 piece since April. I have not had one issue with it. It’s very durable. I have brought in several catfish some being 20"+ the biggest was 10lbs 25". I have seen this rod bend in half with no damage to it. I use 20lb braided line with it and have had fish break the line but the rod is still working perfectly. I even brought in a turtle that reminded me of Godzilla. When the turtle got to land it set there hissing trying to go back in the water. Ended up breaking the clip on my catfish rig but again lived up to being one of the most durable fishing rods on the market. whether I am holding the rod or put it in the y I can see and feel every little bite there is not one bad thing I can say about the GX2.

This rod has helped me land many fish recently and it casts well. The only issue is that the tip is where all of the flexibility comes from so fishing topwater lures like the spook is hard. The line gets wrapped in the tip when walking the dog. I had the exact same rod in the older version and I did not experience this problem.

Ordered 2 of these rods to replace 2 rods I have been using for over twenty years. One of the selling factors for my purchase was the rod guides, as shown in the graphic. The rod I received had only one leg on the rod guides. Looked up on Ugly Stick page and they show only one leg on the rod guides. So if you are looking for a rod with strong rod guides look at a different brand. Also I suggest going to whatever brand you chose webpage to see what the rod is really made of.

These rods are strong and durable while retaining the sensitivity needed to detect a subtle bite. I bought one to use for inshore fishing and for freshwater striper and bass fishing. I was so happy with it, I bought a second one. The 7 year warranty is one of the best.
