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 MaLu Excellent for the price
I use braided line almost exclusively so I was intrigued by these rods. But after hearing many stories of them breaking, I was scared to buy one. But I went ahead and picked up two, one 7' MH casting and one 7' medium spinning and both have been fantastic and are amazingly sensitive. You can actually feel bites when your line is completely slack fishing senkos (braided line helps of course, but I can feel the bites better on these rods than many more expensive rods). I haven't had any issues with quality at all and I have pulled in some lunkers, been stuck in the weeds, and stuck on rocks on the bottom. Those who are breaking these rods are most likely breaking them due to user error (perhaps grabbing up high on the rod and pulling bass in, putting extra pressure on the tip).

Rated 5 out of 5 by bkovach My favorite $50 rod ever
Was excited to try out this rod because the guides were designed for braid and thats what i mostly use.I paired it with a Bass Pro Nitro Tournament Z reel and what a great combo it is. Its by far one of my favorite rods i use.I have caught many smallmouth with it and it performs very well everytime.I will be buying another.
