Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Casting Rods 4.5 5 27 27
Great rod Bought this rod along with the Zebco 33 Platinum for my kid. This setup should last a lifetime with a little TLC every now and again. September 3, 2014
Good value Pleased with performance and like the feel of this rod. August 20, 2014
Good capability at modest price Durable 6' baitcaster pole with modest sensitivity. It's a bit limber, so the action might be a bit soft for some. However, it helps absorb the shock of hard hits from big fish on light tackle as I use it for jigging striped bass in the Chesapeake Bay although it is a bass rig The 6' length is about right for jigging ftom a 20' boat, especially with others on board. The pole is a bit short for casting for bass, but I get good distance with it using 20# braid. August 19, 2014
BAD DESIGN Those of you that ragged and ragged on how good it is, didn't really hold it for over a few minutes prior to writing their review. The GRIP finger hold is a bad design, it is "V" shaped and will pinch your finger so bad it will blister badly. BAD BAD BAD design I have consulted with Shakespeare with no positive responses. HOWEVER !!! The product, function ability, reliability and over all aspects of this rod are OUTSTANDING !! It is just this one particular model that fell through the design cracks. bad design. I have seven (7) Ugly Stiks, fresh and salt water, from 6 feet to 15 feet and very, very satisfied with them all. July 19, 2014
Shakespeare makes a great rod! My wife and I both agree these Rods are the best we ever purchased. We've only used them once but we are looking forward to catching a lot of fish with the GX2 Ugly Stik Rods. Perfect balance and length and they are light but extremely strong. I fish for big snook and I am looking forward to tangling with a hog on this rig. July 8, 2014
gx2 ugly stik These are great rods. The guides are very good. It felt a little stiffer than the older models, but it is more sensitive and felt a lot better for sure. Best all around rod period. July 8, 2014
Good pole for the price Good value for the price. Using it for inshore fishing in FL. July 2, 2014
It works It works! I got this as a father's day gift and fished with it until my reel broke... It was to replace a rod with a broken tip on a 5 year old combo set, so I guess the old reel going was inevitable. But the new rod worked great and I put a new reel on it and it feels even better! June 27, 2014
Father's Day Gift Pole has a lot of whip to it, father loved the pistol grip and spends every minute between work and dinner fishing. I would suggest this to anyone, might have to pick another one up for myself soon! June 25, 2014
Excellent Used it casting and trolling caught bass and northern pike it handled very well caught the pike trolling at 3 mph June 24, 2014
