    I noticed that you can pick up a Quantum Big Cat for about 38.00 not including tax on line, how do these rods rate compared to the Tiger rods, I have a few TIGERS and love them but I've also heard that alot of people love the Big Cats for the toughness.

    iv heard the big cats were great but i think i also heard that they are not blank through handle rods and they can break at the reel seat

    I have not used a Quantum Big Cat, but I do feel my Ugly Tiger is pretty much the Cadillac of Flathead rods (other than say a Gator Custom Rod :wink:) ...

    tiger rods are as tough as it gets.I was at the outer banks last year and they sell tigers at walmart.They have a picture of a tuna on the blanks of the tigers they sell down there.I suppose if they work for tuna fishing they could handle about anything in freshwater.

    Why would you want anything other than a tiger?

    THANKS, I will probably stay with the TIGER then, I've seen fishing shows and some internet sites that take you fishing that use the Quantum Big Cats, but I try to take advise that is valuable and use it.

    Keep in mind, Fishing shows Have sponsors :wink:

    I've read thread after thread on here from HUNDREDS of brother catfishermen(women) praising the Ugly Tigers... I'm sure it the most recommended rod here (especially if your after Flatheads).. Thats saying something with the varied mix of people we have here...
