Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by It broke and I won't be purchasing another one I purchased this rod about 5-6 months ago and paired it with a Quantum Code 860 reel. It felt good in my hands, and was sensitive enough to help me land a few fish that I might not have otherwise caught. I take care of the stuff I purchase, regardless of how much money I spend on it. Today, when casting a custom buzz bait, the rod broke about 1.5FT away from the reel seat. It literally just snapped in half. I have never experienced this with any other rod. Upon further inspection, I also noticed that the reel seat had started to detach from the rod itself. I would not purchase another Berkley Amp rod. May 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy it I got this rod a week ago. Went to a local spot. Usually catch some bass there. Got a hit on a 5" senko set the hook and broke the rod before the first eyelit. DONT BUY IT! You buy cheap you get cheap June 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great feel 2nd one of these that i bought for wife. she loves them for crappie because they are so sensitive November 14, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great Sensitivity, Bad Construction For a cheaper pole id just go with a Lightning Rod if you have to have Berkley. The reel seat breaks easy on these. Broke in 4 days and read it happened to others. Spend a bit more and get a lightning rod or go to a bass master rod. Shame cause the sensitivity was great. April 7, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good price, poor quality & design for the reel attachment, unfortunately you get what you pay for... My son has gone through two of these rods, he really liked the feel and price but after the second one broke I told him that he should spend a little more to get a better quality rod. The reel mounting has broken twice, if Berkley could just fix that one issue they would improve the overall quality. Reading other reviews this appears to be a common occurrence with this rod, people like the feel, love the price but they break easily and quite frankly after very little use. August 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rod Good feel and action. Berkley can't be beat for the money. May 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2nd time charm This rod allows the fisherman great control over the bait when using it. It has a fast tip and solid backbone allowing for a great deal of applications. I use it for texas rigged style and throwing smaller crank/slash baits. There is a downside however, bigger fish can really take advantage of you if you are not careful. This is the 2nd berkley amp I have owned, the first falling victim to a violent hookset on a 4lb. largemouth. (I still got the fish) If this one breaks, I will buy another! February 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by love these rods great feel best for soft plastics. when used with a braided line its like you can know what the fish is gonna do before it does it. and @ the price point you just cant beat it. only down side is the at the reel seat the clear coat cracks when fighting good sized fish like 4lbs fish and up. i bought 6 of these i liked them soooo much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by . Great rod. Great price. Great rod for medium action rod October 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Rod This is a very nice rod. High quality and feels nice. I found it very easy too hook and land a pound to 5 pound bass with this rod. I use it with stik-o's and it so sensitive that you know when you have a nice fish on your line. It also gives a nice fight. February 11, 2013
