Rated 5 out of 5 by ole man... The perfect kayak fish'n buddy...
This product is just right for a fish'n buddy from a kayak, from the bank, hard to toss and reel spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DRU Great stick for general fishing
This is a medium action rod, so you won't get much play on smaller fish. However, it's great for general fishing in freshwater or saltwater. It is a two-piece rod, though, and whether it's a good thing or not, it's up to your preference. It has a matte finish, which is different from the conventional glossy finish on Ugly Stiks. The reel is pretty good, considering it's a combo. I believe it has 4 ball bearings. I'm a faithful of Ugly Stiks, as I have a 8-foot Bigwater and bought my son a 5-footer. They all have held up well. For the best bang for your buck, this Ugly Stik GX2 along with any other Ugly Stik rods is the way to go. They are sturdy, beautifully designed, and very reliable.

Had to return this item as the "easy release" mechanism did not work.

I own several Ugly Stik rods and this one lives up to the reputation. The reel is smoothe and light weight. A great combo for kayak fishing. Good combo for the price.

I like the rod and reel, although I have not used it yet. I am confident that I will be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Silver and Blackfish New Ugly Stik gx2
Very smooth combo. Great sensativity and action on the 6'6" medium. Looks great and seems very durable. Only draw back is handle seems very bulky. Overall great purchase for under fifty bones.

I could feel certain lures, and others I couldn't detect. I trolled with this rod, and couldn't feel the lure, or the small strands of weeds that I went over.
