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

I recently purchased this product because it had a great review, to my surprise it truly did live up to the reviews that I had read ! It performs better than I had expected it to. It casts fantastic , and retrieves the same . Thanks Dicks for the great product .

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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nsomers1 Abu combo Ike dude
I got this combo for my stepson , he's nine so the cheep cost without the cheep feel was a plus. He really seems to like it and I kinda like it when using lite tackle. I don't think you can beat it for the price for a young fisherman.
