Rod for Penn Battle 5000

Any suggestions on a rod for a new Penn Battle 5000? Leaning towards the Ugly Stick Tiger Lite Jigging rod or just a regular Ugly Stick. Will be using it for sight fishing mangroves and casting poppers to tuna, so it needs to be versatile and probably not a broom handle. Thanks!

Tiger Lite

Get the Tiger Lite you will not be disappointed. That is one of my favorite rods and will do just perfect for what you are looking for.

    All the big name manufacturers make jigging rods now. The jigging rods are a lot lighter and more comfortable to fish, while maintaining enough power to pull a mangrove away from the rig.

    Why not put it on a Penn Rod, I have a few and like them. No more trouble with them then any other brand.
