Rated 2 out of 5 by bigrip50 expected more
The casting button on the rod broke the first time it was used. I didn't have hi expectations for this price of beginner/kids rod. But expected more than I got.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Peanut35 OK FOR A GIRL
This product is ok for a girl fishing, but I catch fish more like a man, as in Bigger Fish . Therefore, this product didn't work for me, but could for a girl.

my sister and I each got a new rod and reel combo. It was time to upgrade from our old Barbie rods from when we were little kids. We took our new gear backpacking in the Porquipine Mountains and had some fishing time in Lake Superior. We didn't catch much, but we had a blast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Edab Great combo
I bought one for both my 10 and 8 yr old. It is perfect for them. The only thing that stops this from being perfect is the line included in the reel. It is very cheap.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mr. Mike good, not great
My daughter is progressing with fishing. She is 9. Too big for the kiddie poles and too small for the adult poles. This is the best that we could find while maintaining a girl's color--Pink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Janice Great Deal for the Price!
I bought this rod and reel combo for my Mother, she loves to fish but doesn't quite have the strength in her arms like she use too. This combo is very light weight with a 10 lb test line on it. She prefers the closed face reels like this one and since she flies in from Florida to go fishing with us, we need to provide her fishing equipment. I picked it out and did not realize it was considered a "girls" combo until I got it home. I also didn't tell her :) She fished with us all week on the St. Lawrence River and did not have a bit of trouble with it! Just because it is light weight, I do not believe Shakespeare has to advertise it as "girls" It held up very well and was not expensive!

This combo rod and reel caught a lot of fish for the kids. Bass, yellow perch and bluegill were the main catch. The kids were able to cast for a decent distance and the boys did not object to the pink color on the pole.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Senior Senko nice deal for the price
Bought for 7 year old. 1 year product warranty was reasonable. Glad I bought coverage. Reel failed second time out. Returned to store for replacement and it held up tonight. I think this combo is a reasonably priced item for what you get. I would buy it again, even in light of the failure with the first one. Dick's customer service is second to none and is a pleasure to work with, even when things don't go as planned.
