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 fisherman2000 really good rod
I bought this rod a while back in a 6'6 medium heavy and i was really impressed with its light weight and sensitivity. I paired it up with a new revo s and fell in love. I used 12 pound test p-line black light visible and put it on there.i tried it out and was very impressed,no problems at all. It is all around a good rod for the price and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bassfisherman81 AWESOME rods !!!
I have about 5 of the lightning shock rods 3 are spinning rods and 2 are casting rod . I have had the for about 4 years an going .... They are a great rod cheap price too. I have never had a problem will breaking them . I take care of my equipment so if you do the same they shouldn't break . I have caught a lot of 2 lb bass on them , also I'll admit I have dropped them many of times and no damage was done they still fish like new . So I highly recommend them if you want a sensitive rod that don't cost so much also it won't hurt the wallet .

Rated 3 out of 5 by Djman72 Good Rod
A buddy of mine both bought this rod from BPS to pair with our first baitcasters (7' MH casting). We both have different opinions on it. I love the rod, have caught plenty of large bass and recently took it out to catch some SteelHeads in the creeks near Lake Michigan. Holds up great, has sensitive enough tip to feel a bass hit a jig or senko, while having enough backbone to land some bigger/stronger fish.
On the other hand my buddy loved the rod for the same reasons but has his break about 12 inches from the tip while landing a 2-3 LB bass. I Was with him and we were both pretty surprised the rod would snap like that as the fish was still in the water. Could have been a defect rod, but we go fishing alot and I've seen him land plenty of fish the same size or bigger on it.
I would give the rod a 5/5 but after seeing the snap im not sure I'll get it again.
