Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starting combo This is the 3rd Shakespeare and second ugly stick I've owned in the past decade or so and all of them work extremely well. I have had the GX2 spinner for a couple of years and love it and bought this one because I was looking for an inexpensive way to get into baitcaster and I have had a great experience with this so far. It is a little frustrating at first when you are first using it and trying to learn about setting the breaks and everything but once you watch a couple YouTube videos on it and you will pick it up pretty quickly. The only real complaint that I have is that it came with monofilament and I have been too lazy to change it out with braid. Other than that, it's been great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ugly Stik GX2 Spinning Rod! I have always loved Ugly Stik products. I have never had one fail me besides my Abu Garcia rod recently the center of the eyes started cracking out.. My Ugly Stik before was just a little to limber but never broke as said. This GX2 gives you the modern Ugly Stick with great stiffness where needed. The sensitivity is amazing, you feel the log and know when there is a STRIKE! Very durable, virtually indestructible  with whole piece stainless steel eyes. I bought the medium action 6'0 Spinning Rod and am very satisfied with my choice. Tight Lines my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combo to learn with I got this combo about a month and a half ago and it made all the difference. I hardly touch my spinning combos anymore. took me a couple days of learning to tune, untangling birds nests, and learning to thumb the spool. (Which I did in my back yard) the fist day o hit the water with it I doubled my average catch rate. It's my first baitcaster but the reel feels cheep but does the job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great rod, Poor reel I bought this baitcast rod at the end of last year and didnt get to use it until this year. I casted roughly 15 times with it and noticed my line was reeling all to the right side of the reel. I removed the line completely and noticed the pin holding the line guide broke. This baitcast reel seemed to be cheaply made. I love the actual rod though and replaced the reel with the Shakespeare Agility baitcast reel. 100% better quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the new "Semi-Serious" Angler This is my first and only bait-casting combo, and it is excellent. I got it because I am becoming more serious about bass fishing and wanted more control over my presentation. The reel is pretty cheap, however the rod is great. I have already caught over a dozen 1-4 lbs large-mouth. Overall this combo is good for someone looking to transition to bait-casting. However, I will be getting a better reel in the near future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Maybe this combo was just not for me... So I got gifted this combo for my birthday, I was pumped to get out on the water and test it out! Followed the guidelines as far as using mono line 12lb test to use and and then tried to fine tune it! That’s where it all went sideways! For what ever reason I can never get it set properly, I’m a bit disappointed in the reel itself, the brake seems to do nothing at all, the spool tensioner is either to lose or to tight and the drag just feels lose all the time! Like I said maybe it’s just me! The ugly stick is great, have always liked there poles! It’s just the reel I’m unhappy with!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great combo The line that comes with it needs to be replaced with braid and that increases the quality of the reel. The overall quality is great for people learning to use a baitcaster!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the rod. The reel is ok. I bought this today and caught a few bass this afternoon on it. Love the feel of the rod but the tension on the reel is made of a cheap plastic knob that I already damaged because I tightened it down for my lure and couldn't get it undone. So I had to use pliers to loosen it back up. It still works just damaged. I may buy another reel for it later on.
