Rated 1 out of 5 by ZAK Terrible Real
This product was definitely not worth buying. The real tangles before you even take it to the lake. The only positive thing about the package is the rod because it just looks cool. I would not recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElijahKy One of the best rods ive ever owned.
Great pole all around. Its sensitive enough for trout or bass, yet strong enough for carp and catfish. I've been fishing for the past 14 years. Yet, I've caught more fish on this rod and reel that any reel I own. Well worth the money. I would buy more of these, but I really only need one. Great Rod and Reel, I haven't had any complaints with this rod after a whole year of use. If you don't plan to spend more than $80, this is the absolute best rod and reel you can have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rick86 great buy for the money, worth it
I bought it being skeptical about the price, the reel itself is simple enough, a simple drag and 2 bearings. Its a beginner reel, which I swapped out for my orra, but the rod is what really drew my attention. I absolutely love it and its become one of my go to rods. wish it came in different sizes though.

I ordered this combo on July 7th from Dicks, it came on the 12th when i opened the box the rod broke (i guess you guys have the 3rd party seller name Pure Fishing where the combo shipped from), i called Dicks on Dickson City, PA (thanks to Ashley - Sales Associate for doing such a awesome job), they help me out to fix the problem without any problem. I used for fishing on the next day i had so much fun with Ike Dude combo. Great Job Abu Garcia...

Rated 5 out of 5 by basspro Great for beginners!
This 6' pole is flimsy yet has a hard backbone I have caught monster 12 pounders with this rod. Now the reel it is a surprise this reel is one of a kind it is only a 2 ball baring but this reel is outstandingly smooth. Great for beginners From ages 6 to 18 this combo is outstanding

by FishingGal Great Spinning Reel Combo!
I used to fish pretty religiously when I was a young girl. Turns out that I still love to fish some 30 years later!
I liked everything about this rod and reel from what I read, and now that I have it and have used it, I love it! I'm using a braided fishing line, something new to me. The combination of this graphite rod, a very smooth reel, and an extremely slick yet strong fishing line, makes for a terrific setup for a veteran fisherman, and certainly great for a younger fisherperson.
This combo may have been marketed toward a youth/kid demographic, but I find it to be an exceptional pairing for any demographic! Great quality at a great price equals an exceptional value!
