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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaredt 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.

I phish for nothing but cat fish!!!!!!!!!!! Catfish fight hard and strong. This rod will pull them out of the deepest hole you could cast some cut bait into. I tell you what! I have been phishing my whole life and ugly sticks get the job done!! Some day I want to phish on the ocean for some great whites and I know this rod will pull them from the deep. My great grandfather taught me how to phish and it was with an ugly stick. Catphish Mike out.

I recommend the Penn Fierce 6000. I have one spooled up with 50lb. braid and it casts like a dream , has and all aluminum frame side plate and rotor, and has a Silky Smooth 39" per handle turn retrieve. With ship to store it costs around $75
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.
is this rod thin? ( i mean the handle bar etc ? ) can i catch fish up to 50lb? i was looking for the best rod with a clear very sensitive tip. is it very sensitive and light in weight ? it must bend a lot when fish bites the hook ( even for small fish )
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
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.
Rod will be paired with a Penn Spinfisher reel, model # 850SSM, 25lb test.

We use the XH Model Tiger Lite Spinning with a Spheros 18000 reel and 80 lb braid for Gulf Coast tuna to 120lb. You need backbone and drag to bring in the YFT unless you want to fight the fish for an hour or so...
