Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Spincast Youth Combo. Recently I answered a question about taking kids fishing on the podcast, three different listeners told me about this combo. Got to say I am impressed.
This is what you have, a GREAT rod and and okay reel. Let me expand on that. Keeping in mind this is a combo for a kiddo! The cost of this combo is about 40 dollars and that is about the value of the rod itself. The reel is worth about 12-16 dollars, in time it is going to wear out. And that is okay!
Because as your kiddo gets older and that reel wears out but their skill and willingness to care for things goes up, you just get a better reel for them and keep that great quality rod. I just ordered one for my grandson, it is a rod that will grow with him. And to be blunt if you ever break an uglystick, you have done something very bad wrong.
So if you have a young one you want to get started fishing consider the Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 Spincast Youth Combo as a great place to start.
