Product Reviews

Berkley Lightning Rod Trout is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trout rod This new Berkley trout rod is one great rod. Love the rubberized cork grip. Just the right diameter and feels great. I have the 8 ft version and love it. Moderate action is perfect bait fishing. The double locking reel seat is something you don’t see on trout rods. I think for all the great qualities this rod has it is a steal at this price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Trout Rod For The Money! I shore fish for trout and I prefer a longer rod for the extra casting reach and a UL-L action for the extra fun of light tackle fishing. This rod mets both of those demands with a product of superior workmanship at a very nice price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feel to it! I bought the 8ft trout lightning rod. Havent put it to use yet but matched it with a pflueger president 30 and a trion 25(2019 model) and both reels feel great on it. Nice balance and the quality of it looks and feels really nice for $39 bucks. Not so whippy like the lime green berkley dough bait rod i had before so in my opinion a great upgrade.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke on my 4th fish! I bought the 6'6 UL trout rod for East Tn stocked trout. They average 1/2 to 3/4 pounds. The first trip with this new rod, I was liking it until reeling in my 4th fish. The rod snapped just above the bottom guide! Thankfully I had a backup rod in the truck or my day would have been done. I see now that this is a common problem with this rod line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money Bought this rod, model BSLR662UL from Bass Pro Shops just before Thanksgiving. It broke in half while fishing in the White river while trying to land a small rainbow trout. Tried e-mailing Berkley about this, no response so far. Will be returning it to Bass Pro - no more Berkley rods for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great if you just want it to look at Follow up review. I loved berkley dough rods (those lime green ones) so got this lightning rod when those got discontinued. Its trash broke on a 8 inch trout the first day i used it. 40 bucks is not much but it is on a disposable rod that will snap on the first cast.
