Because superline fishing is here to stay, Berkley designed their Lightning Rod Shock Series Trigger 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 Rods 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 Cypher Unmatched for its price range
I have 3 of these rods and I must say, they are something else. It feels and performs almost like a carrot stix, at 1/4th the price. I've managed to pull out 5lb+ bass out of heavy cover with these rods without a problem. Mine are matched up with Shimano Curados and they work very well together. Give it a shot! You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slink16 Frog Rod
I've never had a frog rod so when the Shock Series came out I decided to give one a try. I purchased the 6'6" MH baitcast rod. Figured the fiberglass/graphite combo would be a perfect combo for the frog presentation. Paired with a superline this rod hauls them out of the slop, no problem! The fiberglass tip lets the fish eat it and the backbone drives the hooks home plus horses them out of the thick stuff. For sure my strike to land ratio is much better thanks to this rod. Two things that I don't like are that rod doesn't "load-up", making pinpoint casting difficult. This could be because I like using 1/4oz frogs, so maybe heavier baits are in order for better accuracy. Also, the holes in the handle can make your hands sore after extended use. A few wraps of tape can certainly fix that problem. Still, I give it Five-Stars.
