I bought this rod in the mind for peir fishing on the Atlantic Coast and throwing heavy plugs in the surf and jettey's. I bought the heavy rod 7' and it is a beast, yes it is heavy but for the lure weight it is expected, great price and the quality is great! I will be buying another very soon!!!

I purchased 2 of these for catfishing on the Missouri river. These rods handle 3-5 ounces of lead easy and will handle big flatheads with ease. I have an ABU 6500 on both and they are amazing.

Tiger lite 7"
I think this rod will do the job. I will be using it for Lake Trout on Lake Athabasca.., The only negative is the weight of the rod itself. It has a lot of backbone, but it is heavy.

I just got into muskie fishing and im going to bass pro shops on saturday, my birthday, and im wonder if the serious and recreational muskie anglers would recomend this rod for all types of presentations....if not this rod what would you recomend
Ugly Stik is a good all around rod and affordable. You need to match the rod to the weight of lures and line you plan to use, regardless of target species. For large or strong fish like Muskies or Stripers in salt water consider a minimum of 7' and go to 7'6" or 8' if possible - these will give best leverage for casting, hook setting and fighting fish.
I need strong opinions from owners why the 6'9" Tiger Lite or the 7' Tiger Lite is one to own, especially for inshore boat fishing. I want to match it with a Shimano Cardiff. Don't have the funds for both. Thanks.
I fish more than most people you might now and have a considerable investment in tackle from many makers and both spinning and casting. I suggest you get the 7' rod for sure - the more you fish the more you learn to appreciate longer rods - easier to cast and much better for hook setting and fighting fish.
These Tiger lite rods are rated for "medium" and "medium heavy" action - but Shakespeare uses the term "action" to rate what I usually refer to as "power" or the overall stiffness / lifting ability of the rod. The question you ask is what I would usually refer to as action; with terms ranging from fast (whip-like tip) to slow (whole rod bend). The action on these rods is what I would call "fast" - the tip responds quickly, like a whip.
