Best Combo on the Market for the priceGreat Combo and extremely versatile. Need a stronger Rod for river and bay fishing, you can't go wrong with an Ugly Stik. Purchased the 7' Med Hvy combo and went right at it. Great balance for casting lures or jigging/bottom bouncing in stronger waters. Liked it so much, I bought two for my friends.

Unbreakable!!I bought got one of these rods as a gift about a year ago. The eyelets are already starting to peel off, but it was just a manufacturing mistake. It is so cool that they have a 7 year warranty. I have been using ugly stiks for more than 7 years, and I love them. I have found that the reels only last for 5 or 6 months, but my friend has had his for 3 years. I have never had an ugly stik break on me (aside from the evil car door) and I have landed multiple 30 pound blue catfish on my rod. I think these rods are the best for the price.

Survivor!!!!I've had this combo for about 4 months, well 3 weeks ago it went overboard. Couldn't grab for it fast enough. After Hurricane Irma and finally getting back on the water, we used a grapple to drag the bottom and found it. Took the reel apart dried it out and lubed it up, smooth as silk.
I would prefer to see this combo in a one piece, my only reason for not giving it 5 stars.

Line ShredderFirst of all i've used Ugly Stik combo's since the mid 80's, For the most part Ugly Stik has 1 of the best fishing line products out there & I've NEVER had a problem til i purchased the GX2 Combo, The 1st combo i purchased the bail broke on the reel, The guides at the tip shredded the line, I took it back having purchased the 2 yr exchange warranty, The 1 i grabbed looked good, Felt good, The bail looked secure, I took it out, The line started shredding again, I use top notch fishing line, I've been fishing for 45 years, I know the value of good fishing line, ESPECIALLY fishing for Striper and large Bass! Both combo's combined i've lost 4 lures in total due to line shredding, I've tried 3 different brands of line, They ALL did the same thing, I don't know what they did with the guides, At the tip is where 99% of the shredding comes from, There are grooves in the tip of the guide causing it to shred, It's happened on BOTH rods, Now i'm at a loss trying to decide to exchange it AGAIN for another 1 or go with something else entirely different, And again, I have NEVER had a problem until i started using this GX2 combo...

Rod is OK, Reel is a Piece of JunkDon't buy this combo. The rod is decent, but the reel they matched it with is garbage. The first time my son took this rod and reel out the handle fell off. He found all the parts, but couldn't get it back together. I bought the same combo, but will be returning the reel too. What a shame. Why pair a decent rod with a piece of junk reel? Terrible marketing.

First UglyStik to breakMy month old Spinning Combo broke where the rod enters the handle like other people have talked about. None of my other Stiks have EVER had a problem like this (and I have a bunch both fresh and saltwater). Too bad, I'm disappointed with the quality of this potentially great product.

There is a 7 yr manufacturer warranty listed on the rod from other vendors, why only one year listed here? Is this an authentic Ugly Stick?
