The Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Kayak Rod is specifically designed for the Kayak angler. The rods give good bite detection, but concentrate blank power in the mid-section and stiff butt making it easy to fight big fish from a seated position. The shorter class rod is designed for general kayak fishing when targeting a wide range of species. Again, it has a sporting long tip/short butt action allowing fun with smaller fish, but stiffens quickly to offer power when fighting bigger fish directly below the kayak. Features the world famous Ugly Stik blank technology, Ugly Tuff guides and lightweight graphite reel seat.
