Rated 3 out of 5 by JBplays Handle broke
For the money, I found this combo to be a decent value. However it's not very durable. And the drag leaves a lot to be desired.
I own several spinning and baitcasting rod and reels. All of them are used for bass fishing.
I bought this combo, and was fairly pleased with it for light pond fishing. The trigger helps with casting accuracy. But after a few months of use, the cranking handle broke.
It may be a good set up for a beginner, just learning to cast with a spinning reel. But not one I would buy again....

I loved it the first 4 times I used it. And then all of a sudden trigger part fell apart. Luckily I had an Abu Garcia to save my fishing trip.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CollinW Not worth the money
Was good for about two weeks, then the snapshot part of the reel started falling apart, Poor quality. I go fishing everyday for bass and im about to be 17 so I know what is good and what's not. I fish tournaments aswell. So if I was you, I would save my money, spen a extra $10-$20. If anything is good for cheap it would be the Daiwa spinning combo which is $24.99-$29.99

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stumpie sweet for the price
bought it and loved it, only thing that happened was i lost the crank nut into a channel, dicks spotted me a new one. zero complaints lake, shore, river, and boat fishing, quick to fire off and easy to get the hang of, moved onto mostly Penn reels when i just grew out of what i expect is it's threshold, still keep it spooled for friends and family, nice breakout combo for anyone coming from spincasters

Bought for my wife who was nervous about making the swith to an open reel. The trigger is a neat idea and she likes hers. I bought one for myself too but my trigger broke on the 3rd outing. Hers is still going strong. I chalk it up to more gadgets, more things to break.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mary Seemed like a great pole till....
I used the pole once and it was awesome. I liked the way it cast. The very next morning we went fishing again. I cast out and my reel fell apart. I lost the tiny screws so I had to sit there while my friends fished. It was disappointing. The next time I buy a pole with a reel I will check everything to make sure it's all tight. Hopefully Dick's will let me exchange it.
