I had never noticed that some rods were built gender specific so I had to try it. Must say that I'm pleasantly surprised at the difference! Lightweight, super sensitive but also firm enough to hold up to catching even huge bass and catfish! We will definitely buy more in the near future :-)
I have the 6 ft ladies gx2 ugly stik and I love it. However, I hope Shakespeare will look into making a ladies 6ft 6 in medium heavy or heavy rod. I love to frog fish and most of the lake around me have lots of weed and grass. Pulling a fish out of heavy grass with a medium rod is a struggle. I would go to the regular GX2 ugly stick, but the handle is far too long for me (I'm only 5'4 and my arms are not that long. Please look into it, Shakespeare!
I bought this rod a couple weeks ago. And all I have to say is... Wow. This is by far the best rod you can get for a women, that is actually for a women. All the other ones that are for a women are cheapos. And ain't work a $1. But this one however is amazing, not only looks are good but it performs too! And you can't beat the price for the quality it is. I use to always just use a mans pole cause you couldn't find a good women's one. Until this one! Buy it, you won't regret it!
