FUN ROD !
Nice little rod! I am an experienced fisherman who wants tackle to perform as needed without failures. Berkley rods perform as expected. This rod will be carried through brush along streams & rivers. Durability will be important. The "Armadillo Hide" finish should protect the rod from the typical bumps and scrapes of branches. It has a sensitive feel throughout its' entire length. The lure action and fish strikes are felt nicely. I got the two piece 5' 6" light AMP for pan fish and a greater challenge with small & large mouth bass. I will use an open face reel and my fiance will use an "underspin" reel on this rod. This will be a way to introduce my fiance to the fun of lighter weight fishing tackle. I predict that she will eventually claim the rod as her own "forcing" me to buy a new one for myself!

Good and sensitive fishing rod
I checked out lots of fishing rods at Dicks. I wasn't on a budget because I just wanted to get a good rod that I would keep a long time. After comparing how many rods with different brands felt, I finally settled on the Berkley AMP 7'. Ironically, it was actually much cheaper than all the others. I've already fished this winter with it once and I loved it. I couldn't be happier - and I think I'm going to buy 2 or 3 more so I can use this rod for all my favorite reels.

Insuring this rod is a must
Where do I start?
The rod is a quality blank, most berkleys are. It is very ergonomic, and casts well. The split grip is nice, and the reel seat is a very cool design. Very sensitive and light for the price.
That is where the pros end.
The cons are few, but render the rod absolutely useless.
First the guides are not high quality, I could live with that, since it is an economically priced rod. The real problem lies in the lockdown grip for the reel seat. It is made of thin plastic, and no reinforcement whatsoever. If you dare to tighten the seat enough to actually secure the reel, you WILL break it. I have used Berkely rods for many years, and this one is a definite fail on the durability factor. BUY THE INSURANCE IF YOU PURCHASE THIS ROD, or you will have a nice rod that can not hold a reel before long
