The Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Casting Rod – USCA701MH - Review
The Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 is an updated version of the original Ugly Stik, which first came out in 1976. The GX2 is designed to be lighter in weight while maintaining the same durability that the Ugly Stik is known for.
One of the key features of the Ugly Stik GX2 is its Ugly Tech Construction, which combines graphite and fiberglass to create a rod that is strong and sensitive, with improved balance. This construction method ensures that the rod can withstand heavy use without compromising on performance.
The Ugly Stik GX2 also features Ugly Tuff Guides, which have been redesigned to provide maximum durability. These guides are built to last, even in tough fishing conditions.
Additionally, the rod's Ugly Stik Clear Tip delivers extra strength exactly where it's needed, making the rod sensitive to even the lightest strikes. This feature allows anglers to detect subtle movements and increases their chances of hooking a fish successfully.
To back up their confidence in the Ugly Stik GX2's performance and durability, Shakespeare offers a 7-year warranty on this casting rod. This warranty ensures that any manufacturing defects or faults will be taken care of by the company.
Please note that there is an $8.00 oversize packaging charge applied to this item. The rod is shipped in a long, heavy-duty tube to protect it during transportation. This packaging charge still applies, even if you use discount shipping coupons.
