Rated 5 out of 5 by Tooley from GX2 Spinning Rod No ugly stick has ever failed me. The old Ugly Stiks where great I just felt not quit stiff enough. This GX2 is very durable, virtually indestructible and with one piece stainless steel guides is a wonderful addition. The sensitivity is something you have to experience yourself. You can feel when you rub the log, bounce the bottom, hit the grass or when the lightest inhale takes place of the lure. The most important I have not missed...... a STRIKE! I am satisfied with this product and it's performance. I just bought the rod, I don't know much about the reels for it. I have always trusted Ugly Stik and they have provided me with smiling days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris W from I love this rod and reel! I worked for a camp in Maine as a fishing instructor this past summer and I purchased this rod/reel combo as an instructor rod. Both parts stood up to daily heavy use for 7 weeks straight, and once I got home I purchased one for my personal use in Ohio and Pennsylvania. I love this rod for trout fishing while backpacking in PA, and for light fishing in streams and out on Lake Erie. A few of my friends have purchased this rod to use with their preferred reels, but I have found no issues with the stock reel, I love this combo (especially with 6lb Berkley vanish)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redd from I love my Ugly Stik! This rod is amazing, I feel everything that touches my line, plus I love the new look, my favorite colors with the traditional Ugly Stick diamond pattern and clear tip, I have heard that the reels aren't the best, mine was a slight bit gritty, but after a cleaning and light oiling it feels amazing, I had planned on putting a Penn fierce 2000 reel on my GX2, but I won't do that until the reel that came with it stops working. I am very satisfied with the GX2, and plan on purchasing the new Ugly Stick Elite here very soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by just4 from Great Rod with decent reel Bought this combo for early spring fishing. The rod is lighter and has more backbone then old ugly stick with one piece guides (finally). However the reel is low end, not that smooth for 4 bb reel and has a large gap when increasing and decreasing the drag. Overall great combo but recommend just buyin rod and putting better reel on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angie from Favorite Fishing Pole!! I bought this pole for my husband as a gift this yr because he wanted an ultra light pole -- this has ended up being one of our favorite poles and def is my go to -- casting is extremely easy with the way the tip is made and I happen to think it makes the lures reel in more appealing since we always get a bite off this pole! Have used for months with no problem and I have caught 5+ pound catfish several times (which I think is pretty impressive for such a light pole!) - simply put, its a really nice addition!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Swifty from Got my use out of it I bought the combo about a year ago and the reel started to feel funny when reeling it in and it finally broke today but I got my use out of it. Overall the reel is kinda cheap but the rod is good.
