cherry wood poles
Love e'm, the only thing I don't like abou e'm is the eyes they need to be some kind of somthing besides just plane metal. I own 3 cherry rod poles and not one of e'm has never failed me. And yes I highly recomend them worth every penny.

I ordered two 5 1/2 foot UL Berkley Cherrywood UltraLight rods from FishUSA and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. The rods arrived very quickly and in good condition (via USPS). FishUSA could not have done a better job. Their web site is easy to work with and they do not hide the shipping charge nor do they add a inappropraite and hidden "handling charge" to the actual shipping cost nor do they demand you create a user account to place an order. I am very pleased with FishUSA. I have considerable salt water experience wth the Berkley Cherrywood UL rods here in the Florida Keys. I don't believe there is another UL rod on the market in the price catagorie anywhere near as good. These rods are very durable, well balanced, well made.
Love this rod!!!

Wish I Got a Different Rod for My Use

I have a couple of other Berkley rods I like and I was in the market for a two-piece, 7-foot, medium-heavy rod that could handle lures up to 1 oz and the heavier line to match. The Cherrywood met all those requirements and it had good reviews, so I purchased the rod. In use, it was less than satisfying. The problem is that there is a lot of friction on the line as it runs through the guides in casting. Maybe this is due to the fact I am throwing heavy stuff on heavy line, but it definitely cuts down the distance I can cast (I've used the same reel and line on my Okuma Celilo - thanks FishUSA - without encountering similar problems). Given the very positive reviews of others, this may be a consequence of the particular type of rod - medium-heavy - or the role I am using it in, but it is still a bit of a disappointment.
Complete waste of money! I was only using 6 lb test. Got hung up. Barely applied a bend to the rod and it EXPLODED ! Snapped into 3 pieces. Poorest quality rod I've seen in 35+ years of fishing. I have other Berkley rods I really like but DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY on this model.

This is a revised version of my earlier review of the Cherrywood Medium-Heavy 7' 2 piece rod. My brother-in-law and I went fishing and I outfitted him with my steelhead rod. Before leaving, I waxed the guides of the Cherrywood because I had encountered with it before when casting Fireline (lots of friction on the guides). This time around casting was smooth and the short butt Cherrywood was light and that made it easy to flick lures and baits to where you wanted them. My brother-in-law struggled with my steelhead rod and ultimately we switched, but not before I landed a 30" pike, which the rod made ridiculously easy. The rod is a great value, easy to use, strong, and light-weight; just wax the guides if you are using Fireline.
Don't get much better than this

I love my Cherrywoods. They are strong, tough and very responsive to anything I have caught â€“ from blue gills, to Northern Pikes, Walleyes, catfish, largemouth bass and turtles. I definitely recommend this product (in 5' and 5'6" single piece. The sensitivity of the rod is outstanding. You can feel everything and the flexibility adds to the excitement.

Ordered four of the 6'6" ML versions for perch fishing Lake Michigan. They have a good feel to them. Cork handle is pretty comfortable. Guides were all clean, no burs or anything. One of the rods showed up with a broken tip. FishUSA replaced with no hassle.
Great fishing pole for the price

This is my third cherrywood rod. I have 5'6" UL, 6' med and 6'6"med lite. All three rods have nice backbone to them for fighting the fish, are sensitive so you can feel the bite and are light weight.
