Rated 1 out of 5 by bob71 First one had a broken button....Second one fell apart the first day...
I bought this combo for my son to use for our first outing together. I was so excited to introduce him to fishing that I decided to set it up the night before we were going out because the button was broken and the line would not release. I returned the first one and exchanged it for the same model.
This was a huge mistake. When teaching my son to cast, I immediately noticed it sticking and saw that the line was twisting up along the length of the rod. The line actually had waves in it which caused the twisting and made it difficult to reel in because you had to continuously undo the twists.
I did not think it could get worse, but it did. On the fourth cast the reel fell apart during my forward motion, sending the internal reel flying in to the water. We recovered all the pieces including the button that took 15 minutes to find and packed up for the day. What a horrible first experience for my son. We were so excited to do this together and all the problems turned him off. I had to work really hard to convince him to try it again.
Do not buy!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jim the fisherman great price and works fine
Wow for [$] I get this rod and reel with line and all. Easy to use, cast a good 20 yards and no tangle. Caught 15 fish the first hour I used it but that could be me.

He is only three but loves to fish with his PAPA. So on his birthday he received this rod as a gift. He is in seventh heaven fishing with me and I am very happy for him and the rod combo.

Cheap price, Cheap product. Bought one and the button was broke on it, really flimsy. Exchanged for a new one and it is constantly falling apart and we have to put it back together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rather B Fish N Good for the price
I bought these (FYI I purchased 4 of them) to use at a Day Camp for kids, the push button makes it easy to cast and the kids learn to like fishing faster. The rods are fine and can hold up to most fresh water fish. The reels are on the cheaper side, from the plastic housing to the one arm crank, but the do the job. However I will say for the money and what my intended use was this was a fine purchase.
