Berkley Lighting rod "Shock" series

Recommended Posts

Berkley Lightningrod Shock: Taking rods built with a specific purpose in mind a step further are the new Berkley Lightningrod Shock series of rods built for use with superlines (i.e. lines with zero stretch). To accommodate the unique requirements of these zero-stretch lines, these new Shock rods feature a Strike Amplifying Tip (S.A.T.) a blend of graphite and fiberglass to produce a slower reacting tip resulting in fewer lost fish.

In addition, the Aluminum Oxide guides are diamond polished to reduce friction and increase durability, and the frame on the tip top guide is rounded out towards the tip to reduce the occurrence of wind assisted loop knots at the tip of the rod issues often associated with fishing superlines. Each of the 10 rods (6 spinning, 4 casting) rods in this lineup also feature a suspending reel seat that lifts the reel off of the blank and keeps it from dampening the rod ensuring maximum sensitivity. Berkley's Lightning Rod Shock series of rods will retail from $49.99 to $54.99.

What are you using this combo for? I know they are marketing it as a superline rod, but i was thinking that the fiberglass tip would make it a good cranking rod as well.
