Berkley® Lightning Rod™ Spinning is rated 3.6585 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to setup Bought this rod at the beginning of summer. Little hesitant at first because of the occasional poor review. I have the 6'6" medium one piece with a pfleuger president reel. Can't beat the combo for under $100. I do a lot of weightless texas rig and top water fishing from the shore. Biggest bass on this rod was 5.24 lbs. Set your drag appropriately and it won't break. It's simple as that. Couldn't ask for more. Will be buying another when the time comes. Berkley is one of my favorite fishing brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from still my favorite rods I have been fishing with Lightning Rods for over 30 years. I still use my first one. I feel they are the very best rods you can get for such a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rod for the money Bought this rod for the Mrs. even though there was some mixed reviews, price was right and bought one. I made sure not to over tighten reel to rod ! and have taken it out on many a fishing trip , The Mrs. has caught many a 2 and 3 lb bass on this rod and performs well ! No issues No problems! , Great Deal , Great Rod ! I'm buying one for myself now!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly designed butt and reel seat I have a 7-0 model that is used mostly walleye for crank baits. I find the extra length of the butt makes it almost impossible to retrieve in an underhand position or when casting. The extra length is useless as it makes the 7 ft rod actually a 6-6 ft rod because of the reel seat position, nullifying the extra distance that I get from my older rods

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Rod I used to use Lightning Rods many years ago and graduated to more expensive rods thinking they were better. Last week I purchased a Lightning Rod for my grandson and was quite impressed with the action and sensitivity that I bought another one for myself.
