Shakespeare Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Casting Rods
I purchased this rod earlier this year with wanting to have a spinning rod on the boat and decided on the 6'9" medium action rod for jigging for walleye, since I purchased two of the 8' med lite rods for trolling. I got into a group of fish and started jigging and landed into a good size walleye that after getting it on board measured 32" long, however in the process the tip of the rod broke and we had to hand pull the line in to save the catch, I think the rod is still a good rod as 90% of my rods I have are Ugly Stks, I think it was just an event that will happen no matter with rod you may have. I intend to send the rod back for a replacement now that winter has set in. - JTP

Quality meets affordability and durability
I added these tiger light rods into my deep water fluke fishing rotations this past season. Very versatile rods, capable of handling various lead weights to hold bottom and a pretty darn good Bucktailing rod... Spros and GULP for fluke... Dynamite rod..
I have mine matched to Penn 965's w/ 20lb braid...

Excellent, fast service.
Recently bought two MODEL # BWCL220070 seven foot heavy action casting rods. Have owned Ugly Stiks before and very familiar with the fishability and durability of these rods, and am sure they will give great service. Will be fishing them offshore, inshore and for freshwater catfishing. Will try to remember to write a quality review after using for a year or so.

Best rod in its price range...
Great rod, Comparable to my brother in law's $200 swimbait rod but at a fraction of the cost. My brother even commented that the ugly stik had more backbone than his rod which helps when fighting 30-40 pound fish. Excellent rod, Excellent price.
