This is the Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Kayak - Pre 2016 model. The 6/12lb class model has a length of 7’6” allowing the angler to raise the rod high enough to work the line around the kayak’s bow when fighting fast running fish.
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 6’ 12lb 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.
