Ideal for anglers of all skill levels, the Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Spinning makes fishing accessible, simple, and fun. This fishing rod and reel combo pairs a highly durable Ugly Stik rod with a dependable Shakespeare fishing reel. Modeled after the iconic Ugly Stik, the rod is strong and durable yet balanced for a lighter feel. The Ugly Stik Clear Tip design responds to even the lightest nibbles and strikes, while the EVA grips offer a firm, comfortable handhold. The fishing rod also features one-piece stainless steel Ugly Tuff guides that eliminate insert pop-outs for ease of use. And made to last for years to come, the two-piece rod is crafted with a resilient combination of graphite and fiberglass. Just as durable, the reel features a machined double-anodized aluminum spool and compression bail springs to ensure long-lasting performance. And thanks to its three ball bearings and one-way clutch instant anti-reverse bearing, the fishing reel delivers smooth operation and near-instantaneous hook sets.
