    Going to order one, cant decide what action would be best for river fishin with 30# mono and 2 to 6 oz. sinkers, targeting big blues & flats. Whats your opinion?

    Model 2201- 7', med. action, 20 to 50# line, 3/4 to 6 oz. lure/sinker

    Model 2202- 7', med/heavy action, 30 to 60# line, 3/4 to 8 oz. lure/sinker

    I was leaning toward the 2201 med. action, but was not sure if it was too light for 40 or 50# fish. Its hard to buy rods over the internet, cant double it over and whip it around in the store and get a feel for it. LOL

    Thanks

    I have one medium and 3 med/hvy and I much prefer the med/hvy action but I mostly fish the river. I still prefer the same for lakes too though. Good rods regardless, esp for the price!

    I strongly reccomend the medium action...I had two of the medium heavys and the tip was just to stiff for my likeing...Now I have the mediums and think they are perfect.

    I'm pretty satisfied with my 2 med./hvy tigers. However, I've never really used a medium action Tiger to compare! One of the better rods out there for the money, just wish they made em in white like the catfish series!
