Shakespeare® Ugly Stik Tiger® Lite Casting Rods
Amazing all around rod for saltwater fishing. Lots of backbone with a very soft tip. Perfect for jetty, pier, and even shore fishing.

I purchased this rod in the 7' heavy to pair with my Abu Garcia C3 6501. The rod feels good and is very responsive and strong. I feel like this rod can take some abuse. The rod can handle a number of reels of different sizes. The current reel feels a little small on the rod but doesn't move once it is tightened. The tip action is fast and provides great leverage. I recommend this rod.

Great value, fine performance
I bought one of these for saltwater kayak fishing, trolling tube and worm for striped bass. Affordable, with the backbone to handle large fish, this rod is working out great so far! Rod weight is not a factor for trolling, tip is sensitive enough to readily detect grass on the tube. 7 foot length perfect for use in a 13"5"" kayak.
Only drawback is I had to cut off flared butt end to get it to fit in rod holder, but that is a very minor issue that I expected. I will be sawing off a couple of additional rod butts soon, as I am buying more of these rods to outfit my back-up and lead-core rigs.

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!!!
