Because superline fishing is here to stay, Berkley designed their Lightning Rod Shock Series Spinning Rods to give anglers a rod specifically designed to handle today's superlines. The Lightning Rod Shock Series Rod's 1K Power Helix construction creates extra strength with a lightweight feel, and the Strike Amplifying Tip (S.A.T) blends fiberglass with graphite to produce for a slower-reacting tip that results in fewer lost fish. Diamond-polished aluminum oxide guides reduce friction, decrease wind knots and other line management issues while remaining lightweight and tough. The Lightning Rod Shock Rod Series also feature a split-grip design that delivers more sensitivity and better balance with less weight, and a suspending reel seat keeps the reel from hampering vibration, ensuring maximum sensitivity.

Although it (SHS701M) was on backorder for over a month it was well worth the wait. I believe that this is the best $50 rod that is available…PERIOD. Its action and weight (VERY, VERY light) is almost a clone of the $150 Carrot Stix at one third the price and I thought the Carrot Stix was the best trout spinning rod available. This rod gives me as good feel as my old 9ft GLoomis Steelhead/Salmon rod that cost me $275 fifteen years ago. I like it so much that I may buy a 2nd one for backup.

This rod fishes like a 200 dollar rod for a quarter of the price. I couldn't believe that it only cost 50 dollars. I thought the price was wrong. I have more expensive rods that I don't like as much as this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rockinleo Another good rod from Berkley
I purchased this rod for A Quantum Energy PTI. Very satisfied with the performance of this rod. Owning a few other lightning rods of other models I would say this one is one of the best models.Light, comfortable, very well balanced.
