Quick review for the new Berkley powerbait dough rod. Video review coming soon.

I love the color scheme on this rod, it's kinda loud. Lime green/green/copper. It would been nice if they would have continued the graphic design all the way up the rod.
I purchased the 7' light action. $39.99 w/one year warranty at most retailers. So this review will be for this size, they come in ultralight and light action. They range in sizes from 4'6"-8'.

This rod has great parabolic action and should pair up nicely with some 2lb. Maxima, line rating is from 2-6lb. test and 1/16-3/8 lure weight.

It has a split cork grip with aluminum accents. Light weight stainlees steel line guides(not sure if thats bad but i like fugi ceramic). It has great sensetivity for a low/mid-level rod. I can place the tip of the rod on my son's throat and feel the vibrations when he talks.

Now here some pics!!!!78307831783278337834

Thanks for posting this. I'm looking to buy another 8 foot rod for shore fishing. Will have to consider this rod.
