The Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 is the next generation of the original Ugly Stik that was introduced in 1976. Ugly Stik GX2 is a lighter feeling rod with the same toughness that makes the Shakespeare Ugly Stik a real workhorse.
  • Ugly Tech Construction - graphite and fiberglass construction create a strong, yet sensitive rod with better balance.
  • Ugly Tuff Guides - newly designed guides provide maximum durability.
  • Ugly Stik Clear Tip - delivers extra strength right where you need it and is sensitive to the lightest strike.
  • 7 Year Warranty

A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

I bought this as a replacement rod for my son. It was such a nice rod I kept it myself. It is now my primary rod. I will buy another one for him.
ProsCame in heavy cardboard tube for shipping.

A lot of things but not "Ugly"

I would categorize this pole as a good strong rod best suited for applications where sensitivity isn't paramount. I like using it for topwater and cranking. The grip is a little beefy but not terrible. Aesthetics are great and I like the portability of 2 pieces. The 1 piece may be more sensitive. Overall i'm very pleased.
ProsAffordable Strong Attractive Portable
ConsNot very sensitive

I bought one last year from dicks but returned it and tried the 6' but again I returned it beacuse I couldn't keep the guides srtaight. Every time I cast that rod the 2 peices would twist and cause wind knots and line break.
ProsLooks great with sargus or fierce
ConsWimpy reel seat and poor clearcoat
