Shakespeare Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Jig Spinning Rods
These Rods are an excellent value. They are extremely sensitive and have the strength to haul in anything you hook.
The reason I gave these 4 stars instead of 5 is because the reel seat is too small on it. Neither my Quantum Boca 80 or my Penn Battle 7000 would fit in the reel seat. For a rod designed to handle 100 pound braid I believe the reel seat should be able to accommodate a size 70 or 80 reel.

Why buy a custom?
These rods are very impressive. I have the Tiger LIte Spinning version and am pleasantly surprised. Got it as a spare for my custom built rod and made me wonder why I would buy another custom rod. Very light, Fuji guides, tough as nails, and under $70. My custom is slightly lighter but it also cost 3 times as much....If you want to get into vertical jigging pair this with the 760 Slammer, 65 pound Power Pro and you won't be disappointed.

I got the 50-100 pound rod with Okuma Coronado reel spooled with 65# power pro, this was an upgrade over my old tiger rod for saltwater and catfishing. The rod is light and not a single flaw. Well worth $70 and the performance is top notch. I even used it for largemouth once because I left my lite rod at home, cast just as far and not a problem detecting strikes from 2-4 pounders. Have not gone after anything huge yet, 15 pound blue fish this past weekend. Hope to get to virginia to get some striped fishing this next weekend.

I bought this rod because I was looking for a heavy action rod that didn't break the bank. When I received it I was surprised at how thin it was and thought to myself this was a mistake. I rigged it up with my Okuma ABF 65 and Powerline 80 lb. and took it for a ride. What a pole! Pulled in ten 5 to 8 lb. catfish and a 15 lb Crevalle Jack. The Jack put up a fight and that's when I found out just how good this pole is. Can't wait to take it to the keys. I give it two thumbs up.
