Ugly Stik GX2 Fishing Rod Reel Combo Review – Alpha Outdoors

Here is a review on the Ugly Stik GX2, a classic fishing rod and reel combo that should be in every anglers rod box if it isn’t already. It’s a great rod that you can toss around without being worried about messing up your Fenwick or Bulldawg poles.

Here I have a 6’6 Ugly Stik GX2, Medium Action
The reel is a 35 series Shakespeare reel
5:2:1 Gear Ratio
3+1 Bearings

Should be just about $50 wherever you go. Can’t beat a rod like this for that price.

I do not own any music in this video.


David Thomas says:

$36 at Walmart right now….helluva deal not to pick this combo up

Ryan Ramirez says:

Ive caught 24inch stripers withthese not bad.

Zero Calibur says:

Picked one of these up at Walmart for $42, liking it so far as a beginner rod.

hart says:

question, bass pro has this for $49.99, you can get their 2 year no questions asked warranty for $8. I wen to walmart and they have it for $29.89, with walmart’s 90 days return policy. Should I return the one from bass pro, and get the one from walmart?

Anthony Reyes says:

would a 7′ medium action with a penn fierce 2500 work for trout, bass etc..

Superior Mango says:

We have the same bow and arrow target

Jason Foulks says:
