    Ugly Stik Tiger Lite (Jigging) Rods

    To remove this advert please register for a free account

    If anyone does ever manage to find any Ugly Stk Tiger Lite Rods....make sure you check the Spec and are getting what you think you are!!

    There are Ugly Stik Lite Rods; Ugly Stik Tiger Rods; Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Rods; Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Spinning (or Casting!) Rods and then there's the Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Jigging Rods!

    e.g.

    Code BWSL 2200 66 is a 1-piece Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Spinning Rod, 6ft 6ins, 12 - 30 lb line, 3/4oz - 4oz lures retailing US$65

    but Code BWSJL 2200 66 is a 1-piece Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Jigging Rod, 6ft 6ins, 50 - 100lb line, 4-7ozs lures/jigs retailing US$70.

    Quite a difference!

    I'm pretty sure Duni uses the 130lb line shorter "Jigging" version:

    BWCJL 2200 510 which is a 1-piece Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Jigging Rod, 5ft 10ins, 80 - 130lb line, 6 - 10oz jigs, again retailing US$70.

    For info: Shakespeare also do a monster in the same range (still at US$70):

    BWCJCL 2200 58 which is a 1-piece Ugly Stik Tiger Lite Jigging ("Casting") Rod, 5ft 8ins, 100 - 200lb line, 8 - 14oz jigs.

    Make sure you get it right!

    Daiwa

    Not really what you should be using your Daiwa for !!!!

    But they are one hell of a rod , ive got some that have survived in client tackle packs in Guinea for over 4 seasons , and considering the amount and quality of the fish they are fighting and the fact that they are doing it for 7 months a year in the hands of inexperienced anglers thats pretty damn good .

    I,d never go back to anything else . Even use one myself !!!

    Funnily enough Daiwa have stopped giving me top sections FOC !!!

    That would be my guess. Dunesky would love to snap one of them when he hears how expensive they are.

    I think the Diawa is too long for both boat and shore. Does any one know where to get the 7 ft tiger popping rod? All stores I have tried in US have refused to send one.

    Mmmmmmm ... warm. In fact, red-hot. I was seduced by the literature in the Tenryu catalogue. Anything in French that comes in scions and talons, rather than tips and butts, is worth an insane amount of birthday money in my livre. When, and if, it roars, I'll let you know ... and I know Duni will try to wreck it. It'll be fun trying! Who knows, it might even hold a 300lb moose.

    Eh, Brian!

    I donít think even I have anything in my fishing arsenal that would hold a 300 lbs Canadian Moose at full gallop and I donít think the Cuban Customís will let me in with my Beretta!!!

    Hey Earl, whatís your weapon of choice for Cuba this year? Did you ever make any headway on sourcing that fox you were talking about?

    Yes indeed, I did. Got a lovely pair of Fox Treks, but you know me. They're both conventional rods. For spinning I picked up a Hopper rod. Very inexpensive, but supposed to be a stout rod for jigging. We'll see

    Dont know about a moose

    But I hooked a bullock on a 6wt fly rod once . Pretty unequal battle really , had it flat on its back in 10 mins !!!

    catch and release of course , my priest just wasnt big enough to dispatch it cleanly.

    No not really but those lifetime warranties dont half come in handy !!!

    They probably saw how Robson Green treated your rods on Extreme Fishing, he'd break anything fishing like that. Funnily enough, when the baggage handlers between GB and LGW managed to break the tip of mine, even though it was in a Bazooka case, and lose it for 4 days so I couldn't claim off the airline, Daiwa sent me a new tip at trade, which has to be better than full price, not as good as FOC though.
