Great Rod for the Pier I bought the 7' 20-50 lb. medium. I called Ugly Stik because that is far from the medium specs but they assured me for this line of rod that was correct. It has a incredibly strong back bone but is tapered for live bait West Coast action. I could tell right away that it was strong. I had bought this for a pier. I am not a big game fisherman. I am a have a great time and catch quantity as opposed to only something like a Texas Bull Red. The customer service rep assured me that this would be a good fit. Most the fish I catch in Corpus Christi or Galveston are under 5lbs. but the bringing them up over the guardrail is probably 20 feet. The rod for being as strong as it is, has a very sensitive tip and that really impressed me. I paired this with a Penn Spinfisher V 6500 with 30lb. braid and it easily did what I needed it to, and I am hear to tell you this would bring a VW Bug out of the ocean and onto the deck. I think took it off the causeway and on a local beach that had minimal surf. Both instances just bottom fishing I could feel bites and reel in fish that were barely a pound a piece. Thank You Bass Pro and Shakespeare because this rod really is all that. November 20, 2014
Ugly Stik Tiger Rod I just got a 2 piece 7 foot medium Tiger Rod in the mail. This thing is beefy! I feel like I could reel in a sunken ship with this thing haha. The only thing that bent on this rod was the tip, super sturdy with a sensitive tip. It is the best quality Ugly Stik they make, for even $90 you can't find a better rod, it matches perfectly to my BPS Catmaxx 70 reel, with 45lb mono, I am confident wherever I go fishing.

reel seats too small I have two of the rods and the rods themselves are great. I have two 50 class spinning reels on them one a cabo and the other a fin-nor sportfisher and the light rods really help offset the weight of the reels so the total weight of the rig is comfortable to fish all day. The rod has a solid backbone and is suprising sensative. The only reason I rated it a 4 instead of 5 is that the reel seat is a little small and I was barely able to get the retaining rings over the reel base. For the weight of line this rod can support, it should have a reel seat that can comfortably accomodate a 50 class reel. January 15, 2011

A: 
Yes, this set up should work well for you. Gags are common up to about 25 pounds but can grow much larger (over 70 pounds). While the rod and reel should have no issues with most fish do be aware that it may not be best for fighting the big one!

No, the reel seat is too small for the Boca 80, It is also too small for a Penn Battle 8000. The Boca 60 fits.

Penn Spinfisher V Series. They go from 3500 to 10500. I personally own 2 5500s 2 6500s and 8500, 9500 and 10500. They all fit on the Ugly Stik Tiger 1 piece 7 foot rods. Caught the Bull Shark in the picture on this rod.

Depends on what you are fishing for, I have a BPS CatMaxx reel on my tiger rod, size 70, really beefy reel that has nice drag and holds a lot of line, it's only $40, I was thinking of buying a Penn Saltwater Reel, but decided to try out the cat maxx and I have caught some good sized fish with no problems.

I have the Tiger Spinning rod, which I got for Catfishing in Santee, SC. It performed great, sensative enough to feel bottom, and strong enough to bring in large cats, the largest I hooked into was about 35lbs, and had no problems reeling it in. Pole at handle is not thin, I would say like an offshore pole, and pole bends like any uglystik, I would recommend this rod, I cant wait to go use it again and hopefully land that trophy Cat

A: 
The rating of a rod indicates the range of line that is recommended for it. The heavier of these is rated for up to 50# line, You can successfully fight fish much larger than 50#, depending on your the reel and technique. If you are looking for a clear tip spinning rod, you probably want to look at the Ugly Stik striper UCSP or catfish UCCP line.
