Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Casting Rods

Description

Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Casting Rods have been redesigned and infused with enhancements that go beyond cosmetics. These new Ugly Stik GX2 rods deliver improved quality, durability and dependability without compromising the heritage, strength and tradition of the original. The iconic Ugly Stik Clear Tip still delivers extra strength right where you need it and is sensitive to the lightest strike. Cosmetically, the Ugly Stik GX2 balances a modern look with the classic diamond wind above the grip that many consumers loved about the original.

Ugly Stik GX2 Casting Rods feature Ugly Tech Construction with a new blank through reel seat design that combines graphite and fiberglass to create a strong yet sensitive rod with better balance. Ugly Stik GX2 Rods showcase a sleek matte black finish highlighted by red and silver accents giving the rod a more modern look. These rods also feature the Ugly Stik logo etched into the EVA grip to give it a look all its own.

Features of Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Casting Rods include:

  • Ugly Tech Construction
  • Ugly Stik Clear Tip design
  • Double foot guides
  • Better balanced blanks
  • New blank thru reel seat design
  • Ugly Tuff 1-piece stamped SS guides with no inserts
  • EVA Grips with Ugly Stik logo etched into handle

About Me:
Use fly rod
spinning
and casting.
The 7 foot casting GX2 Ugly Stik casts well and has plenty of backbone. The graphite they added to the GX2 makes the rod lighter and stiffer for a medium action. If you get a really big fish on, don't even worry about it. I caught a 9 pound 0 ounce Largemouth on a 5 foot ultra light Ugly Stik in the 80's. I have bought a Ugly Stik fly rod from Fish USA and this GX2. Shipping was prompt and it was well wrapped. Free shipping and excellent price.
Pros: Strong and lightweight
Cons: None
Best Uses: None Specified
