Rated 5 out of 5 by tippy70 from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rojas from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Captain81 from Best rod ever I bought eight of the 6'6" MH casting rods for my catfishing addiction. Went out and caught 10 over 25lbs already and the rods held up perfectly. I love the new design on the eyes, I'll be picking up more in the future for friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackb from Tough Rods! While fishing for bass and panfish with a light action Ugly Stik GX2, with 6 lb. test line, I hooked a 4 foot carp that weighed around 25 pounds. When the fish ran and dove to the bottom under my kayak, the rod nearly bent into a full circle! After doing that multiple times, I finally pulled the fish into the boat. Those rods are tough as nails. I now own four of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr Senko from Tried & True I've bought 3 GX2 rods and all are excellent. 6'6" medium, 7' medium and 7' medium heavy. These rods are great with braided line and have enough backbone to put the biggest bass on the bank or on the boat with you. Don't go and blow $300 on a rod, get 3 GX2'S for $100. These rod's are the best for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michael23 from 9 foot gx2 - Couldn't be any more pleased All I can say it wow. I'm an amateur fisherman probably started fishing less than 6 months ago and this thing is amazing! I have the 6.5 foot ugly gx2 as well but the 9 footer can cast so far it's unbelievable! One of my closest friends is a pro fisherman and was in shock a $40 fishing pole is as great as this thing - he's even ordered one himself! I've fished with shimanos, eagles, and the ugly stik series is by far my favorite. You just can't go wrong with the flexibility and they even give you a 7 year warranty because Shakespeare is so confident in their product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blacksheep462 from Not my Father's Ugly Stik I bought the GX2 after looking at many rods. I decided to purchase an Ugly Stik because my father, who is retired and fishes everyday has had his Ugly Stik since the late 80's Ultimate testimonial, right? Well, this is not his Ugly Stik. I like the GX2 It's a much heavier fishing rod - spine and backbone. Maybe his is broken in more but this is a stiffer rod at Med action. I have been using my rod for throwing Texas rigs in a small farm pond. I have caught several 6 LB large mouth and I am impressed with the performance and feel of this rod, even though its stiffer than my Dad's older Ugly Stik. Keep making grat products and this fmaily will keep buying them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marc from great rod but cheap design on handle On MODEL # USSP602M where the reel base if on the rod it is a very thin plastic piece where it screws down to hold the reel. while reeling in a bass I heard a crack didnt think much of it because everything seemed fine. a few days later at home I was change out the reel and the whole threaded section broke off. it is very thin plastic. Every other aspect of the rod is great and I will purchase another uglystik in the future. just will keep a look out for this.
