Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big Striper on my Tiger Rod! This review is for my Medium action 6' 6" BWC 2201. I've been using the Ugly Stik Tiger Casting Rods for 6 years now and I trust them for all of my planer board rods. These rods have taken on some big stripers over the years for me. I love their durability and for a rod to survive 6 years in my boat, that's saying something! Here's another big Lake Lanier striper. This fish was caught on 12-20-2013. You can see the Ugly Stik Tiger rod being put to the test once again. December 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good rod I bought this rod for as an "unbreakable" ocean rod, I felt the handle was a little too thick but I sanded it down and so far it feels great! as far as fit and finish goes, Ive seen better for its price, but they dont have the same reputation as these Ugly Stiks do! August 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rod This is my second one in an identical model. My first one is 18 years old and still great. I fish it often heavy and hard. Got a second one for a a NEWELL reel I just got my hands on. I never met a graphite rod I could not break!! Don't waste your money ON GRAPHITE BOAT RODS. Get one of these UGLY STICKs The two piece version is awesome for transport and very strong . June 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but could be better.. My review is for ugly Stik Tiger 2201-2 2-piece rod. This is one of few 2-piece casting rods I could find. It is easy to transport and it is as strong as single piece rod. I use this rod for black sea bass and fluke fishing and I have hauled some huge sea bass and doormat flukes. It is relatively sensitive, although not as sensitive as my friend's 100% graphite rod (which costs 3 times as much). For the money it is unbeatable. All the positive reviews here generally would apply to this rod as well so I won't repeat. Now for the negatives. First, the guides on the rod. I wish they had put the Fuji Hardloy guides on these like the spinning rods. The stainless guides, especially the tip top wore out soon and I don't even use super braided lines. The tip top was easily replaceable but some of the guides have now developed wears and I need to replace those soon. Next is the weight of the rod... it sure feels a lot heavier than the newer 100% graphite rods. I wish they could update the blank material. But overall this is a very good rod for my targeted species. May 9, 2012

A: 
Hi, when you are looking for a good option for bottom bouncing, jigging or cranking the first option would be is comfort. You want a rod that is light and not too long. You need to be able to feel the bottom bouncer tick along bottom, making sure there is good bottom contact. Second, the rod must be sensitive. Sensitivity in walleye fishing is always important, because not all bites are aggressive. The Medium Light rod would be a good option. Thanks

Q:

about the guides?

Details: 
My question is: I read where the guides are Stainless Steel. How will they stand up to braided super lines? I know from years past the braided lines will cut into metal guides and ruin them.....Thank for any ideas on this.

I use mono line on this rod and even that is wearing down the guides. I would replace the tip top with a Fuji Hardloy.

A: 
A casting rod has a trigger on the handle and requires a baitcast reel, which sits on top of the rod. Spinning rods have no trigger and require a spinning reel, which is mounted under the rod.

Yes these tiger rods are what you want if your going after fish 5 to 30 lbs very tuff rod stainless eyelets be sure and select your action for the size fish your after the meduim light 12 to 30lbs has very good action even from a 1lb fish. The walleye can get pretty big I would use the meduim light action for walleye. You could use it for pan fishing if you wanted but I would select the light action for pan fish.

I would think most would find these rods a little overkill for walleye. Commonly used for big catfish or saltwater fish.
