Product Reviews

Berkley® Lightning Rod™ Trolling is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rod!! Unbelievable value! I was in Alaska on a fishing trip and went into the Soldotna True Value hardware and sporting goods store. I intended to buy a new salmon rod because they had a 30% off sale on G Loomis E6X and Lamiglas Certified pro rods. I had picked up several of them and was still deciding on a rod when I came upon these Lightning rods by Berkley. They had the proper guide spacing I would expect in a higher dollar rod and I was very surprised when I picked the 8'6" medium heavy rod up and it felt as light or lighter than the G Loomis or the Lamiglas. Then I was really floored at the price of under $40. I figured what the heck and bought one thinking that at $40 if I didn't like it, I could always come back and get the Loomis or Lamiglas for $175-225. I fished it the next 5 days and limited everyday with this rod. It performed unbelievably well! Even though the name says trolling rod, I used it for casting from the shore. The rod has great sensitivity and felt great in my hand. I own several very expensive salmon and steelhead rods and this rod performs at the same level at a fraction of the cost. After landing 15 salmon and fighting many more, I had no failures or concerns with the construction of this rod. I even went back and bought another one and may have bought more, but they wouldn't fit in my rod case to take home. However, once I got home I ordered two medium action, another medium heavy, and a 9' heavy action rod from Fish USA for $39 each. I made a believer out of several guys in my group, some of whom were fishing with $300+ dollar rods. Berkley, please don't stop making these rods or at least let me know before you do so I can stock up!
