Nice price, but...   (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Lightweight, Good price responsive, Sensitive, Accurate Casting
Cons: The reel seat came apart
Best Uses: Trout, Flounder, Redfish
Comments: I use this rod for inshore saltwater. The price was right and it's got a good responsive feel and seems durable enough. When I tried to put a new Okuma reel on it the threads on the reel seat came unglued and I had to glue thdem back on the piece of cork that comprises the mount. Slightly oversized reel would not fit in the seat. My other rods of this size accepted the reel no problem.

A sensitive & capable rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Durable, Good Tip Action, Easy To Transport, Lightweight, Sensitive, Accurate Casting, Medium stiff
Best Uses: River Fishing, Small Fish
Comments: I bought the Berkley spin cast Lighning Rod becasue I'm a big fan of Berkley products. I have a bait casting rod I use constantly and I have a Berkley Blazer which I use when I fish for Steelhead. I have 18 fishing rods but I always take the two Berkley (spinning & casting) every time I go fishing. They haven't let me down and I've landed some huge Bass & Walleye using them. I will continue to buy Berkley. As a side note, I bought some Berkley line that wasn't up to par one time and I sent them a note about it. They sent me replacement line without any questions, even admitted they had a problem with one particular run. Easy to deal with goes a long way with me.
