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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bassfisherboy good stuff
I ordered this rod in early april and just got it last thursday due to over a two month back order. Thats the only complaint i have with this rod. This rod is very light and sensitive, but is still very strong. IT cast braided line so easily as if it was plain old flurocarbon. I love this rod and you cant beat the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by retiredtelecom Worth the Month Wait
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.
