First i will List the reels I use and then I will list the rods I already have. Any suggestions on matching the rods with the reels would be much appreciated. I would like to match gear for catching large cats in the 40 lb+ range.

Penn 320Gt2
Okuma Solterra (large cats and small shark)
Penn 113H2 Senator (for very large cats and fishing for 3-6ft shark)

Ugly Stik Tiger 7ft Medium Heavy (30-60lb)
Ugly Stik Tiger 7ft Medium (20-50lb)
Ugly Stik Bigwater 6'6 Medium Heavy (20-50lb

Please let me know if these rods in particular will perform for larger cats. Thanks in advance!

thanks..i guess the better question would be is it better to use the bigwater Ugly Stik (20-50lb) with the senator or the Ugly Stik Tiger (30-60lb)? I am trying to re-match for cats mainly> I had them matched for shark and other surf fish prior>>I will be using these mainly from the shore so would the 7ft be better suited than the 6'6 rod
