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 Bassgal I finally managed to break it.
I bought a 7 foot MH triggerstick a couple of years ago, specifically to use with braid. I have been using 50 lb braid on it, to present lures to fish in cover, like stickups, trees and downed timber. It has been a very good rod, well balanced, fairly light and with a soft and fast enough tip to compliment the use of braid and be nice and sensitive. I used the braid so that I could pop and rip snagged lures out of the stickups, instead of breaking them off, or having to go in close with a lure retriever. Well, Yesterday was my unlucky day....I finally jerked back on the rod a little to hard and fast on a snag. It didn't bend the rod very far, but was just too much with unforgiving braid. Oops. Oh well....luckily, the rod isn't very expensive, so I'll certainly be picking up a replacement soon. And I'll be a little less enthusiastic about trying to get snagged lures loose this time around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve513 Great rod for the money
For the money i'm not sure you will find a better rod. Rod appears to be well built similar to $100+ rods. Overall very happy with this rod.
