America’s best-selling graphite rod delivers powerful value and stunning good looks! High-modulus IM6 graphite provides the ideal balance of durability, light weight, and strength, and it’s topped with chrome-plated SS304 guides, which are 20-times tougher and 55% lighter than aluminum oxide. The hidden-thread foregrip further reduces weight, and the skeletonized reel seat gives 100% reel and finger contact with the super-sensitive blank.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JC4TruLife Great rod, cork is trash
Great rod blank! Fighting a bluegill felt like fighting a marlin. However, the cork fell apart on only my second fishing outing when I had tightened it down on my reel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sheiba Junk rod
I bought 2 of the 5' lightning rod IM6 ultra light. When putting on the reel and screwing the top cork piece on the rod down the cork top broke in two. I thought I might have gotten a bad rod so tried it with the other rod - same problem. Sent them both back for refund. Also tried contacting Berkley. Their rep said a tech would call me back - never did. Sent 3 emails got no response. Will never buy a Berkley rod again. Their older model which I still have are great but the newer IM6 rods are junk

THERE ARE A LOT OF REASONS I LIKE THIS PURCHASE. THE PRICE IS GREAT. LOVE THE LIGHT WEIGHT. IT'S PLENTY SENSITIVE. LOVE THE CORK HANDLE. ACCIDENTLY CAUGHT 3 SNAPPING TURTLES THE OTHER DAY. THE ROD HAD ENOUGH UMPH TO BRING THEM IN AND ALLOW MY SON TO CUT THEM LOOSE.
