  • High-modulus IM6 graphite blank
  • Chrome-plated SS304 guides
  • Hidden-thread foregrip
  • Skeletonized reel seat gives 100% reel and finger contact
America’s best-selling graphite rod delivers powerful value and stunning good looks! High-modulus IM6 graphite provides the ideal balance of durability, light weight, and strength, and it’s topped with chrome-plated SS304 guides, which are 20-times tougher and 55% lighter than aluminum oxide. The hidden-thread foregrip further reduces weight, and the skeletonized reel seat gives 100% reel and finger contact with the super-sensitive blank.
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Junk rod I bought 2 of the 5' lightning rod IM6 ultra light. When putting on the reel and screwing the top cork piece on the rod down the cork top broke in two. I thought I might have gotten a bad rod so tried it with the other rod - same problem. Sent them both back for refund. Also tried contacting Berkley. Their rep said a tech would call me back - never did. Sent 3 emails got no response. Will never buy a Berkley rod again. Their older model which I still have are great but the newer IM6 rods are junk March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good rod Use mine at the piers and surf. I have caught big bull reds 30+ inch and 4ft gar no problems great rod December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT BUY FOR THE MONEY THERE ARE A LOT OF REASONS I LIKE THIS PURCHASE. THE PRICE IS GREAT. LOVE THE LIGHT WEIGHT. IT'S PLENTY SENSITIVE. LOVE THE CORK HANDLE. ACCIDENTLY CAUGHT 3 SNAPPING TURTLES THE OTHER DAY. THE ROD HAD ENOUGH UMPH TO BRING THEM IN AND ALLOW MY SON TO CUT THEM LOOSE. July 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sensitivity Awesome rod, I could detect the slightest perch hit when fishing Lake Erie June 28, 2013

A: 
The IM6 uses a IM6 blank and has SS304 guides.

The Shock, is designed for braided lines, uses a composit blank and Alum-Oxide guides.

The line you use will determin which is better for you. One note of caution: Don't over tighten the reel down on any Berkley Rod, they are a little week in the reel seats. Great rods though. Best of luck, and keep a tight line.
