About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.
Berkley designed the Berkley 7' Lightning Shock Casting Rod specifically for superline fishing. Its uses range from bass to inshore species and most everything in between. Anglers commonly turn to superline when they need a near-zero-stretch line with plenty of strength in a small diameter. Aluminum oxide guides feature a diamond polish to create a rich, black surface. These guides help decrease wind knots while remaining lightweight and tough. A split-grip design delivers more sensitivity and better balance with less weight. The ergonomic handle offers a comfortable grip, even when you're fishing for a long time. This Berkley rod features a suspended reel seat that dampens reel vibration and ensures maximum sensitivity.

Picked this stick up in 7' MH at Walmart to use as kind of an all-aroud rod - jigs, Texas rigs, lipless cranks, spinnerbaits, etc. I wanted to basically be able to use it for anything but weightless worms and drop shotting. This rod is incredibly sensitive for MH and it is the most accurate-casting rod I've ever put hands on. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because I feel like the superline-friendly design hurts my hooksets with 14 lb vanish transition fluoro. I've missed a couple hooksets and broke my line once (not on the knot) but those incidents were few and over a long stretch of time. Amazing stick. I'm going to get a spinning version in 6'6" ML for drop shotting.

Because of the soft tip this rod is great for crankbaits! This use should not be over looked.

Bought this rod, 7' model, to pair with a low profile bait cast reel i had bought. Landed many coho salmon its first season out using 10# mono. Tip eye insert fwll out so finished season without it. Pasted thru winter steelhead with it and then replaced the tip. Switched to braid and started drift fishing with it. Landed lots of steelhed and more coho and even a 20# chinook and raised 2- 4-5' sturgeon i didnt count on hooking.. Very sensitive rod when paired with 30# braid.and can map entire bottom just by feeling the taps and skidding. Highly recommend this rod to anyone and plan to get the 7'6" model and pass the 7' along to my daughter to learn on. Believe me i have and continue to abuse this rod and it just keeps laughing

For the price and what you get in the rod blank its a great buy however the reel seat needs to be redesigned or Berkley should include a list of recommended reels that fit the reel seats they use on these rods. I purchased a 6'6" Medium spinning version the reel I intended to use is my Daiwa regal 2500 XI spinning reel after installing the reel if pushed forward it would pop out of the seat and tightening more on the seat clamp would cause the reel foot to become distorted which I did not feel comfortable with. With my background in Mechanical engineering and fabrication I felt compelled to modify the seat to properly work with my reel. I ground down the front portion of the reel seat with a rotary tool I then rebuilt the seat surface with a 2 part epoxy resin. The outcome a reel seat with a perfect custom fit to my reel.
