Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Casting Rod
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.

I use the GX2 exclusively for walleye trolling on Lake Erie with in-line boards. These perform great.

I have 10 of these rods. I mainly fish Lake Erie. These rods are a great all around rods. I use them for trolling using big boards, running in line boards, and they work good for dipsy divers. I'm Blessed that I get to fish on multiple boats, have several friends that are charter captains and have mated for a few. So, I have used many types and brands of rods. As anyone who has fish the big lakes, know rods can get abused. These rods hold up great while still being sensitive with strength.
Very Nice GX2 Ugly Stick
