Great rod until it broke
I bought this during the start of the pandemic at Dicks sporting goods. It was paired as a combo with an Abu garcia black max reel. This rod casted far and was very sensitive. One day i snagged on a big branch, trying to slowly drag the branch to me to save my lure the rod snapped instantly into 3 pieces and i was extremely sad. Was a lovely rod, landed many nice bass on it but all good things must come to an end eventually.

Nice shiny cherry, light and nice for spinning
Bought it a couple a months ago, the rod felt good and light. The upper half broke.

I would be nice if Berkley could replace the upper half of the pole.

Upper piece of rod broke.
I bought the 5’6” 2 piece and was using it for smallmouth after only a couple trips and only 3 fish landed the top piece broke. Definitely didn’t expect that.

Bought this about a month ago for pan fish well sadly it broke right at the second ring just like everyone had said. Haven’t decided yet to buy another one or not? Right now its my 5’ pan fish rod!! Lol

Very nice rod for the price The best part was how fast I received it. I had ordered some last minute things for a fishing trip and received them with several days to spare before leaving. Thanks!

I bought the cherrywood rod 7 foot medium and caught a 28 inch pike with it and rod broke in 4 pieces as I got the fish almost to the boat , I retrieved rod , fish , lure with net what a show that was . I expected better quality from Berkley. Now out almost 30 bucks .

Beast of a Rod!
There simply isn’t a better spinning rod on the market for the price. These make for great cast while fluke fishing and help produce big fish and getting your bait in those tight places. The action on a 7’ MH Is second to none and great for beginners or the experienced angler! Highly recommended! Use 12LB TEST LINE

I use this 6’ model with a calcutta 50 for redfishing when I have to fish the marsh banks tight. Thats right; i flip it over and put a baitcast reel on it. The action is awesome! These are the only rods I have used that hold up against the pounding of 10lb reds and the harsh environment. I would recommend this rod to anyone.
