Rated 2 out of 5 by from GREAT ROD ^v^v^ HORRIBLE REEL I bought two of the UL combos on 04/06/2015 at the store in Harrisburg, PA for trout season. As the headline says the rod is GREAT! (I expected nothing less from an Ugly Stick). The dissapointing part was the reel. Right off the bat while putting line on one of the reels it started clicking, the other sounded like it was full of sand (constant light grinding). I'll be tearing apart both reels this evening to clean and rebuild. If that doesn't fix the problem, they'll be going in the garbage and I'll be shopping for a better quality reel. I highly recommend purchasing the rod only (USSP481UL) and putting the $20 difference towards a better quality reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Ugly Stik I read all the reviews on this rod and other reviews from different websites and it seemed like a great buy. I went to Dicks and they had it on sale for $39.99. I was pretty happy with that until my friend who also was buying this rod said lets try Walmart. So after going to Walmart and seeing it was on sale also for $29.99 it was a no brainer and we both bought one. Its the best Shakespear rod that i have purchased out of the 4 I own. We both were shocked to get it so cheap! It worked great and I caught a Bass in the first 15 mins we went fishing. It works great and no problems so far. 7 year warranty is nice also. I like that its 4 bearing and its clearly better then the other 5-7 shakespeare's rods that I saw at Dicks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome This combo is great. For the price i got me the 7 MH for rockfish aka strip bass and catfish. I have caught several 15-20lb rockfish with this setup and no problems at all considering i have heard a lot of bad reviews about the cheap reel that is on it. What i am really proud of is catching a 30lb flathead catfish using this rod along with 17lb mono line. The rod pretty much Flexed like a U when the fish went underneth the boat and i was sure it was going to break. It didnt. The reel did feel a little bit sloppy but if u think about it, its only a $10 reel. For the price i would suggest picking the combo over just the rod. Just keep the reel as a back up

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome rod... Reel not so awesome After not fishing for a long time, a buddy got me back into it. Bought this combo as a starter. The rod is awesome. The reel, on the other hand, after a couple of trips out is starting to make grinding noises. It's not very sturdy as it feels like it's falling apart when reeling it in. Spent a little extra money and ordered a Shimano. At least it lasted long enough for me to get back out on the lake and enjoy fishing again. I'd recommend this combo as long as you have intentions to change out the reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant value I was delighted to find a rod and reel combo in a shorter length that was a two piece. It was an excellent value and the $10 rebate was a bonus! Catching fish so it works!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice rod The Ugly Stiks get a bad rap from people that really like to spend their money, but for the price they are nice rods. I was also able to get a medium rod that's only six feet long which works well as a flipping/pitching rod for my 5'3" wife. We like them for soft baits but you have to watch your line more closely than I do with my 7'6" medium/heavy (name brand) rod with a fast tip. Of course, that rod cost over a hundred dollars just for the rod. The reel included with this combo is not great, but if you can get this combo on sale for ten bucks off then you are getting the reel for free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great stick i just got my girlfriend one for the upcoming fishing season. she loves it and cant wait till saturday which is the opening day of trout in SE PA. i got her the 6'6" cause we do both fresh and salt water fishing. i plan on getting a 6'6"M for myself to add to my collection i lready have a few ugly stik's varying in size from 10' to 6' and swear by them, they are vey durable and flexible and an excellent rod for the price. as for the reels they are decent i use it only for fresh water and i use penn sargus or penn fierce reels for salt water. overall this is a great deal and a excellent rod.
