While the Ugly Stik GX2 may only cast $40, it fishes just like a high performance rod that costs triple the price. Find out Kayak Angler web editor Ben Duchesney’s thoughts about the rod and check out the full gear review on Kayak Angler’s site.

Mine snapped in two pulling in a snag. Went back to my older ugly stick that has handled that kind of stress for the past 10 years and is still going strong. I prefer the older gen ugly stix..

Corey Cimilluca says:

what is the name of your reel?

Anthony Reyes says:

would a gx2 7′ medium action be okay for pan fish?

Jason Dailey says:

I have two of the 7′ medium action Ugly Stik GX2 rods. One for my baitcaster and one for the spinning reel. They both handle really well with my Abu Garcia reels. I am more of a spinning tackle kind of guy, but will use the baitcaster for heavier weighted lures.

/Fish says:

I had some casting GX2s when they first came out and the spines were all on the wrong side of the rod. Curious as to if they have fixed this. I grew up using nothing but Uglies but that experience put me off. Not sure if I’ll ever buy another.

Spencer Haislett says:

I broke my ugly stick

Eugene Vlogs says:

Awesome rod, I have the same. But with 10 bucks more you can buy shimano sellus for example.

RandyMarsh says:

Always loved ugly stik and have 10 regular ones. Do the gx2 series have something with a hard enough tip for flipping or heavy cover fishing? All the regular series are too sensitive and don’t seem to have all that much backbone.

Dan says:

wtf i spent $60 just for the rod. I live in canada tho

Nono Thomas says:

I found some at Walmart for $30

Nice review! I just bought the gx2 in baitcaster yesterday. Your channel is the only one I could find a review on the baitcaster model. Do you only throw soft plastics with it? Have you used any jigs or crankbaits with the gx2? I bought the 6ft rod which is a little shorter than my other rods for bass fishing. Have you found any downside to this rod? Thanks.

Paulo Alves says:

Charles Jackson III says:
