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 sheaff217 great price!
The Berkley Lightning Rod was a great investment, especially for under 50 dollars. The only thing I am not sure about is that it could use an extra guide or two but for the price I don't think I can complain to much. I will definitely be purchasing a few more. This is a great rod for the weekend angler and can withstand a good bit of abuse because I haven't broke mine yet and I am pretty ruff on my gear. If you want a good rod without spending hundreds of dollars you need to check this one out!

Well I've been reading some of these negative reviews about this rod and all I can do is laugh and shake my head!! Berkley is about as solid of a fishing product manufacturer as your gonna find. This is my third berkley rod I've owned and all three of them were as rugged as can be and gave me years of action packed fishing. I'll tell you right now that I think this rod performs just as good if not better than some of the more expensive rods I've fished with. You just absolutely cannot beat the price hands down!! I've got this rod paired up with a Daiwa Procyon 3000 spinning reel and I feel it's the best combo that I've ever fished with!! So if your skeptical on buying this rod, trust me don't buy into the negative reviews you might read on this rod!! This rod is made from the same basic materials as all other rods are so I promise it will not break!! Just think about it for a minute, do you know how hard it is to break a fishing rod!! Give me a break!! Lol. Oh and this rod is super sensitive so you can honestly feel everything from bottom structure to solid strikes!! Another winner from Berkley in my book!!

I was absolutely in love with this rod until this weekend. It was by far my favorite rod I have ever purchased. Great feel, light, looked cool, everything you could want until it broke! I was trolling crankbaits in the river and got snagged on a log. Initially I thought I had a bite and jerked on the rod to set the hook. To my surprise the rod snapped just above the real. Factory flaw?

by SupremeAngling Best rod for your buck. Hands Down.
I love my Berkley Lightning Shock. I liked it so much I bought another one for a different set-up. I own Shimano and Abu-Garcia rods also and can tell you with confidence that this rod is just as good or better, and $50 cheaper. I can't understand how some of these reviewers are having trouble with the tips because I fish at least 3 times a week, Inshore and Bass fishing and have never had any problems. I've had monster Reds on and Lunker Bass and these things perform flawlessly. Sensitivity is perfect. In the pic I uploaded you can see a 8lb beast and my Lightning shock rod I caught it with. Buy one and you'll see.
