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.

I got two of these Lightning shock rods for Father's Day. On my first trip, the tip of one started turning. Rather than returning it, I took the tip off and epoxied it back on. On my next trip, the other rod shattered into three pieces as I was setting the hook. I returned it and got an identical replacement. On my very next trip, the replacement shattered while setting the hook as well. I will not get another Lightning Shock rod. I've bass fished for 25 years and never seen anything like that. Just plain old POOR quality.

I bought this rod three months back and have taken it to Lake Gaston, OBX, everywhere. This rod is absolutely exemplary and will do any type of fishing whether it is flipping/pitching, frogging, crankbait, drop shot, topwater, et cetera. For the price, this rod is too cheap and should actually be around $120 or more. I would strongly recommend this rod.

It was a great rod until while pulling free a jig it broke 6in from the top.
