Rated 3 out of 5 by bgdogmik where's the handle?
I have a bwc1100 7 foot rod. it is made nice (though a bit heavy) it is rated for 50lb test, yet the handle is like a fresh water bass rod's. A rod in this class, 50lb, is going to have a heavy reel and needs anothe 6" of handle on the back to balance, nevermind fight a fish. Casting and action are addequate but the handle is too short and the trigger is too far forward to use with a rod clamp.

I've 2 1120 BWC 7 foot rods, used primarily for catfishing. They'll haul just about anything out of the water. The 1120 is a match for the Tiger rod at a more reasonable price. They make short work out of a 15 lb blue cat and have enough strength to pull a 20 lb flathead out of his hole. The flexibility of the rods make them great for drift fishing for catfish.
The friend who turned me on to the rods uses his for alligator gar fishing. On a regular basis, he brings in 100+lb gar. His record to date is 180lbs
These are rods that cannot be beat for quality and price. Get one, you won't regret it.

Over this past summer I went and caught alot of big catfish at dirrfrent pay lakes in ohio. I bought and used a 10" casting ugly stik .This is a great rod I brought in a 36lb shovel head in like nothing, but the 70lb shovel out of catfishermans paradise II put up a big fight but i still got it in. This is a great rod for the money that you pay for it.

I often looked at the Ugly Stcks at the stores and I often "älmost" got one...well just fought my first fish ...from the shore ...(tarpon) (not easy) around 30 lbs with an Ugly Stick (12ft) and its one of the better rods I have ever purschased for my sport fishing here in PuertoRico. Mmm ...Im thinking of buying an offshore Ugly Stick.

I currently have the Ugly Stick 12ft Heavy action rod. Purchased it for snagging Spoonbill in OK. However the butt of the rod is almost 3.5ft making it very combersome. I enjoy the overall action and length of the rod but I need a shorter butt. On Ugly Stick's 10ft rod what is the length of the butt from the reel down to the end? I need as much lenght as possible in a rod but I can't have a rod whose butt makes up 1/4 of it's total lenght.
