Berkley Amp is unlike any other fishing rod. Lighter, faster, more Sensitive! At the heart of the new Amp rods is 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 on both spinning and casting models, allowing the hand to remain in constant contact with the rod blank, and taking sensitivity and light weight to a new level. The Berkley Amp comes with an Armadillo Hide Finish that eliminates cut fibers and ensures the blank is free from imperfections.
