Rated 2 out of 5 by dashmon 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.

You get what you pay for, But I at least wanted to get the full $30 use out of it not $10. Attached a Quantum escalade HD baitcaster reel and 3 uses later the housing for the reel fell apart. The plastic detached from the rod. Horrible rod, Didn't even last me 2 weeks

Rated 4 out of 5 by wifisher82 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.

Good feel and action. Berkley can't be beat for the money.

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!

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by crazyhorse not what I expected
This piece of equipment was fair at best. The rod didn't feel right after I put a reel on it. I cleaned it up and gave it to someone as an earily holiday gift. Get back to what got you here.
