Rated 1 out of 5 by from Perfect! I got this for my 8 yr. old grandson. This is his first rod. His Dad needed a 2 piece 5 ft. rod for the kayak. This is my grandson's first rod and he loves it. My son said he is jealous! I may have to get another one for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alaskan Juggernaut I was an Alaskan fishing guide in the Bristol Bay Area of Alaska and we used about 20 of these every day salmon and trout fishing with clients. I never once saw one break. I won't buy anything else now that I'm back home. Durability is unmatched, and it just works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor rods - break easily Have used 3 of these rods - all 3 broke. Ugly Stik should have stuck to making good rods like they used too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improved backbone. I owned a few of the older ugly sticks, and being mainly a pike fisherman I always wished they had a stiffer backbone. The new gx2 serries has far better backbone for setting big hooks into boney pike mouths, particularly I find that the regular (not elite) 6.5' rods are the stiffest, probably because they appear to use the same blank as a 7' rod, but are cut shorter. On a side note, I really wish that Shakespeare would make a 2 peice medium heavy spinning rod. Never understood why they dont.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality build Excellent materials built to last a very long time. Got it for my wife who has always grabbed the butt end of my bass rods, but this fits her perfect, and she says it cast a lot further than she figured it would.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought two; One was fine and one was not! Ordered two of these; when I opened the packages I found one was perfect and (what I expected from all my many ugly sticks), and on the other the tip section was molded or glued crooked and the rod was not true from tip to handle. The first time I ever was disappointed by an ugly stick product in probably 40+ years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it on strippers in the Hudson River a great pole with plenty of strength to land the bid ones
