Shakespeare has their new GX 2 rod and reel combo put to the test.
Full disclosure: I love Ugly Stik. My first one lasted roughly 1o years before I finally had to replace it, with, of course, another Ugly Stik. Watch the video below to see the rod and reel combo put to the test.
For fifty bucks, I’m not mad. I’m far from it. Let’s recap what happened in this video.
He is able to cast two pounds of lead, so you will have no problem throwing the heaviest of lures with this. The rod holds up to lifting the weight of a full milk jug, a chain saw, and a bike that weighs 22 lbs. He is also able to reel in his young son, even when he’s on an open kayak. Finally, you can tow your boat with it, admittedly with a different reel than what comes with the combination deal.
If you aren’t fishing for Go-Karts, this rod is worth the coin.
