Shakespeare Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Jig Casting Rods
When I bought this rod I immediately knew I was going to pair it up with an Abu Garcia 6600 C4… It was a great combinations, together I was able to catch a 5'5" 75 pound alligator gar and the rod held pretty good, I can now really depend on this rod when fishing for big fish! i was able to get a good hookset and fight the fish reallly well! I was happy with the rod!

I have been using both these and Shimano Trevala Rods for double duty Halibut and Albacore Rods and must admit these Rods are better. While a little heavier they are more robust.. I tested all my heavier Halibut Rods lifting 15lb downrigger weights and the rods felt like they had quite a bit more left in them (The Trevala rods despite being rated heavier were at the end of their capacity)- the fact they are 1/2 the price is just gravy!

Own 4 of these rods & fish them hard on the east coast during commercial striped bass season and also double the rods for ground fishing use (cod, haddock, Pollock). I have mine paired with Avet LX's on the 5'8" rod and the Avet SX's on the 6'3" (?) rods. Dependable - Durable - Well Built - Great Value!

good all-around heavy freshwater rod
Purchased 3 of these rods recently for catfishing. As it turns out, they are being used quite successfully for early season stripers.
