I was recently complaining on another thread about the cabelas in my area not having the best selection in heaver tackle:stiff rods, heavy line, big hooks. being close to the 'mighty mo' and all youd think they would have this stuff. Today I was looking at my brother-n-laws catalog and seen a few new things. One of theise was the whupping stick salt. All I can say is they better be stiffer than the others for ~$60. There rated heaver for the most part but that aint saying mutch to me considering I couldnt tell a difference in the stiffness of the 8'&9' reg ws and the 8'er is rated 20# heaver. BUT ANYWAY the reason I started this thread was to find out about the tiger rods. I seen on their websight they had the u s tiger lite rods as a new item and Im pretty shure these arent the rods you guys speek so highly of. I think it was just u s tiger rod correct?
