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 JimH1 Great for finesse fishing
I catch far more fish on plastic worms and creature baits than I did before. The fish hang onto the bait longer allowing me to get a good hookset.

I loved this rod until it broke on a bass. Wasn't forcing it or anything. Just snapped 6" from the top. It was just over a year old so there goes the warranty for a new one. Berkley won't give me a discount or anything. Poor customer service. I will never buy a berkley rod again!

I have bought berkly rods three times. My uncle snapped my first berkly lighting rod with a fish on. Then he bought me a new one and i snapped it with a fish on. Then i bought a new berkly lighting rod and snap again when i was tying up a new lure in a tournment. But i wasn't dumb when i bought it the last time because i got a gear warranty. so haha berkly im getting a rod that is not made by your company. 3 strikes you are out berkly rod! I love your berkly power worms but i hate your rods. I will probaly get a BPS Bionic rod now.

I can't understand how so many anglers have had problems with the tips of these rods. I have three of them, 2 casting and one spinning. On a lake I put my boat on, it's not unusual to land 25 Largemouth and Smallies in a day. I have ripped through the slop, pulled bass out of the deep, and never a problem. I have my drag set proper and am careful at how I bring them in. It blows my mind when I read these reviews. I bought these three at several different locations and on different months. Could I just be lucky? In my opinnion, it would take a whole lot of bending to break a tip. I have quite a few much more expensive rods. I do find them as good quality, excellent feel, and a all around pleasure to use. I hope my luck keeps up for yet another season of use. Pick one up and you'll see what I mean.
