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.

 tough travel rod
Pros: Packs in a suit case
Cons: sections work loose
Comments: Purchased the 6'6" 4pc rod to take to Hawaii. It was a lifesaver for a die hard fisherman. Easy to pack in a suit case along with some very limited tackle. I caught a couple barracudas and lizard fish. The rod performed well. The only problem was, the sections will work loose after multiple cast. I just kept squeezing them together after maybe 20 -30 casts. The little extra effort doesn't change my opinion that this is a great buy before you travel. Probably best for bass and walleye, but worked great in the pacific.

 excellent value travel rod.
Pros: excellent value for money, nice and light
Best Uses: trout in rivers
Comments: Purchased this rod for an upcoming vacation to New Zealand. I will angling for trout. Excellent value for money, quality of construction is up there with my daiwa and shimano rods, fantastic that they are about $100 cheaper than what I paid for those. They are much more responsive than the previous generation of ugly stik rods. I' m very impressed. My only concern is that maybe in the long run they will not be as indestructible as older ugly stiks. I'll let you know after a few trips how it handles a beating.
