    Tiger: The tried and trusted mass produced rod everyone has come to know and love.


    Surge: The lesser known limited production rod that most who try switch over to.

    Either way you can't go wrong, but heavy action Surge is my rod of choice for swift current big blue action.

    I agree with this post. The tiger rod has already proved itself. A med/hvy action is a good all around rod.Good Luck on your choice.:lol: :big_smile:

    if you want a big pole like a ugly stick tiger 30-60 mh then go with a 7000ic3 mostly for flattys and big blues But if not go with ugly stick tiger 20-50 paired up with abu garcia 6500c3's for your channels and if you do hook into that big one you got plenty of gear hope this helps



    always go for the big one
