    7' is the max that you can get a Tiger in.

    The Tiger Rod can be bought in 7'6", that's the casting model. I personally own the 7' model and I have no problem casting far with large weights.

    However, since you're interested in larger rods I would recommend the Ugly Stik Big Water rods. They have a larger variety for spinning rods, ranging from 9' to 13' models, the 12' model having a whopping 2 - 12 oz weight rating! The casting model is only available in 10' and 12', they do have smaller ones - but that obviously isn't what we're looking for in this case.

    Bass Pro sells them around $60 - $75.00, depending on what you decide to go with. The larger ones are 2-piece also.

    I almost bought one, they're very sturdy (I love "broomstick" rods). The only thing that drew me away was the fact that I will be on a boat on the majority of my upcoming fishing trips.

    I have a 10' Catmaxx combo with the CM80 spinning reel, and it casts great. I will actually be storing her very soon as an "extra setup" since I've switched to 1-piece casting rods.

    Jake, get the Big Water 12'. They are killer. They have a fast tip and a strong back bone. They can rocket launch a 12 oz. weight a long way. :big_smile:

    Jake, you might want to look into those rods by cherokee. New sponsor here. Supposed to be a good rod coming in the length's you want. Think Paul has had his hands on them and might be able to tell you more about them.


    only a suggestion

    Shelby i just looked at Shakespeare's website, looks like the tiger goes up to 8' but only a ML action if I'm seeing it right All the MH and H actions in a tiger are 7'. The bigwaters go up to 15' XH action.

    Looks like the Bigwater series is something that Jake would be looking for

    Link to Shakespeare's rods on their site.

    yea, i just want one that will still work good with a circal hook, not to heavy, so i dont know, if im going to get a rod i gues ill half to post more.i want out 50 yards with ten oz weghts, but i need some flex, for a circal hook to work good,but im leaning to a bigwater casting medium heavy, twelve or a hevy, just dont know if the heavy action will load up for circal hooks, but i need heavy to get distance, any input, i cant just go look and test one, im 3 hours off from a place thats got them

    I'm pretty sure I seen them on their website, and if my mind serves me right I saw a 7'6" casting at BPS when I was picking up my 7. I remember arguing with myself over trying to shove an extra 6 inches in my car and truck without giving it a bend.
