Does this rod work as well for inshore saltwatrer as the Berkley Cobalt Fire?
I am looking for a under-$100 rod to match with my new Quantum Cabo 40, and am considering both the Berkley Lightning Rod Shock (b/c I fish with braid) and the Berkley Cobalt Fire. Is the Lightning Rod Shock as good as the Cobalt Fire for inshore saltwater fishing? Does it stand up to the salt?

If it didn't stand up to freshwater for me it probably won't stand up to saltwater for you man.

For Salt water I would use a heavey rod. See which one has the heavy'st and use that. You wont be disapointed.
