I ordered 2 TIGERS today 1 Medium and 1 MH rod and will be picking them up at BASS PRO here in St. Louis in a few weeks. I'm also getting another 100.00 this week and I thought about getting one of the 8' Black Boat Rods that Ugly Stick has at BASS PRO, it's a HEAVY model rated for 20 to 60 lb. I believe, it sells for around 65.00----certainly looks like a good rod to use with either a 7000c3 or Penn 320 for river fishing---however the M or MH TIGERS are less exspensive and I'm well aware that they are a great rod, just don't know what would be the best. If I got another Medium Tiger I could at least use it as an optional Channel Cat rod also. Any suggestions on what you all think would be the best way to go.
