Rated 1 out of 5 by Coastfisher from Not typical of typical Ugly Stik quality standards I've had many Ugly Stik rods over the years and this is the only one that's ever broke and virtually fell apart. It started with the bottom cap of the handle falling off (which didn't affect the rod performance) and then a month later the rod snapped in two. The rod is less than 1 year old. Also, the eyes have slight rust already and I'm adamant about rinsing the rod after each outing. I have 4 other Ugly Stik rods and none of them have had these issues. I write this review so Shakespeare can work on it's quality control. I'll continue to be a loyal customer, but will make sure I closely inspect future Ugly Stiks that I purchase. I would try to return this for a refund, but I don't have the receipt any longer.

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 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 DaGreen from reluctant to buy new !!! BUT !!! I bought the new GX2 the other day, and went trout fishing yesterday in the famous MCKENZIE river in Or. Unfortunately my rod had broken due to my friends careless act of shutting the truck door. I always bring at least one extra rod when I go out, and today was the GX2. This rod is heavier then what I like to use for trout but I didn't have another and we have been catching trout that weighed 3-6lbs from time to time. First bite of the day was a wopper I couldn't believe it. I was expecting the normal trout or the bit bigger trout, but my rod bent and my drag took off. Using 6lb test leader I coaxed in a 18 1/2LB SALMON !!! This rod acted freaking awesome !!! So now I am happy to purchase "NEW" products from UglyStik even if the originals are my favorite... THANK YOU FOR ALL THE YEARS OF GREAT PRODUCTS !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zandren5 from ..my experience with Ugly Sticks I worked on Wahweap Marina at Lake Powell in the 1980s and bought my first Ugly Stick to fish Bass, Striper, and monster Cats there. It was used daily against my ex-wife's best wishes and hiked it down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon a few occasions, still have that old stick today hanging in my workshop rigged and ready. I fish in my local Bass Club now in So. Arizona and decided to enter the 21st century a bit and get a newer version Ugly Stick to see what they're like. My new Ugly Stick may be a little less ugly tha my antique clear tip Stick, and we didn't quite win last week's tourney with the four large mouth we caught, but I must say the new version is a fine fishing pole that will hang next to old faithful rigged and ready for future excersions. I used drop shot most of the day and did pull a spinner bait off the reeds early morning. The GX2 action and feel pulling bait, more importantly setting the hook and reeling in the ones I caught, was just what I expected from Shakespeare, thanks for being my go-to pole for so many years. Some friendly advice to you younger fellers when picking your future wife.. my new wife doesn't mind me fishing frequently and loves to fish with me.
