Berkley Lightning (BSLR662M) rods are great.

by jbird68 -

I've caught bass, walleye and pike using this rod and it handles them easily. I got the BSLR662M but think I should have gotten the BSLR662ML. I like a little more flex in the tip for easier casting. But for $29.99 (On-Sale) it has been a great rod. I would highly recommend one, but get the right specs. The cork handle seems to get dirty and then gets a little slick. But if you clean it off it's good to go.

by Brendan Ranslow

I recently ordered the 5’ 6” light moderate fast action and so far it is working fantastic for the trout I catch in Washington State. The rod came in such great packaging, I want to order more from FishUSA! I love the rod and FIshUSA, keep doing what your doing!!!

Best Bang for Your Buck!!! FishUSA is where you should buy this rod... PERIOD!

by Brendan

I recently bought another Berkeley, but in 5’0”, 2 piece ultralight, for bluegill and trout fishing. I love it! It arrived on time again and it wasn’t damaged due to FishUSA’s amazing packaging. I don’t know why other stores aren’t doing what FishUSA is doing!!! Keep up the above and beyond work!!!

Great rods for the money, but Berkley needs to listen to this complaint!

by Dale

I have been buying lightning rods for years. Last year a bought 3 more. I love the light weight and the composite cork grip but I hate these micro eyes they put on the new rods. We use bobber stops on our lines a lot. Doesn't matter which ones, these rods do not cast. Bobber stop gets caught in the micro eyes every time. Berkley please consider going back to standard size eyes. So people remember this if you use bobber stops a lot.
