Rated 2 out of 5 by Reviewer from Dissapointed This was my first Berkley rod, I've heard good things about it so I thought I'd give it a try. The first day I went fishing was pretty good, it was very sensitive and launched lures like a rocket, so I had a good feeling about it. I got snagged up on a tree and, applying little pressure, the rod snapped perfectly in half, the lure still in the tree. I had a good feeling about the rod, but the fact that the medium action couldn't stand up to a twig dissapoints, and I found out the rod was hollow inside. The only reason I'm not rating it as a 1 is because it has some good qualities, but just not durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg721 from Awesome Stick 1st...Great quality. 2nd...Great Price. 3rd...Great rod for fishing from kayak, canoe or inflatable. The short length is easy to handle while seated and lets you easily flip up under trees and cover. It loads great with 1/4 oz jig/grubs or 3/8 to 1/2 oz small cranks. It loads easy and has plenty of backbone to pull fish from cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Musky40 from I’ve been buying Lightning Rods since they 1st came on the market and still have every rod with no failure. The rods are strong, light weight and comfortable to fish all day. You can’t beat the price, especially for the quality. I’ve spent almost 10 times as much on other rods, but always go back to my lightning rod

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hopjim from Good value Used the rod once and pleased with purchase. Tip a bit stiffer than anticipated but great rod for price. Good general purpose rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt_h9991 from Awesome casting rod for the price I live in Minnesota and fish lots of freshwater and my Florida bass trip I did not bring my rod I only brought my reel and I wasn’t going to fork up 190 dollars for another St.Croix I picked this up and it has been amazing I highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stick from I love the pistol grip handle. My casting is much better now which I credit to the pistol grip. The feel of the rod is perfect for me. Not too stiff yet not too loose. I have already caught several bass and the rod handled very well.
