Shakespeare invests decades of soft water fishing experience into its top-flight Medium-Action Ugly Stik Icefishing Rod. This rod has a genuine Ugly Stik blank, EVA foam handle, and graphite reel seat rings. Shakespeare’s BVLDG style Guide System with stainless steel inserts ensures years of tough use and abuse in the most wicked of winter conditions.

Up to this point I’ve been primarily using graphite ice rods which are very light but can also be fairly fragile. Although I find full-sized fiberglass Ugly Sticks are a little heavy for a long day of casting, an Ugly Stick ice fishing rod is reasonably light due its short size. The supposed near indestructibility and long warranty have been the main reasons that I have chosen the Ugly Stick GX2 medium and medium heavy ($19.99 each) ice rods for this hard water season. The GX2s are hybrids of both graphite and fiberglass with the graphite making up the backbone while the fiberglass adds the sensitive and resilient tip. I’m hoping that these rods hold up to regular hardy treatment and that I will have them for an entire season and beyond. Look forward to future updates on these products as I will be testing them throughout the hard water months.

The best ice fishing rod in my bucket.
