Product Description
berkley Berkley's new Amp casting rods have increased sensitivity to give every angler the very best chance to turn the subtlest strike into a catch. Amp rods feature X-Posed reel seats and split-grip cork handles, allowing the hand to remain in constant contact with the rod blank, and taking sensitivity and light weight to a new level. The rods come with an Armadilo Hide Finish that eliminates cut fibers and ensures the blank is free from imperfections.

This 1-piece, 6'6" casting rod has medium-heavy power, 8 - 20-lb. line weight, and 1/4 - 3/4-oz. lure weight. 6 guides.

      Comments about Berkley AMP Casting Rod, 66":

      I had a lot of doubts about it not being strong enough to pull bass out of lily pads or moss but after fishing it for a season and pulling a 7lbs 2oz hog out of I'd say above average thickness lily pads all my fears are put to rest great rod, I'd say best rod in its price range.
      6'6" medium rod 12lbs Cajun mono line and a quantum ultrex reel is the set up I use for this rod
