Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!! Bought this on impulse one day when I really needed a quick pole/troller combo. Did not have time to go and buy the gear I usually used. Thought this would be a decent back-up. After about three short fishing trips, the reel froze and the bearings locked-up. I put another reel on it, and the next trip the pole broke in half while reeling up!! Don't buy it it is a cheap overseas made piece of garbage!!! September 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Junk Gift for grandson. Returned the first one as a screw and another part fell off on the way home. Replacement lost the same parts while using it the first time out. No documentation came with it. Went to South Bend web site and could not even find the rod listed there. Spent $60 for an absolute piece of garbage. They also market this monstrosity under the brand Calypso. Don't go near this junk. October 12, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Should have bought the Penn reel next to it on the shelf I bought this thing because of it's low price. I needed a bang around trolling rod for a small boat & I needed a drag that is a little heavier than the 10 pound max on my old Penn 209. I also wanted a little extra spool capacity. I now wish that I had spent $15 more & gotten the rod combo with the Penn 309 reel that was next to this thing on the shelf, or one of the Senator combos if my budget was higher. This "Black Beauty" reel cranks in more & more mushy each time I reel it in. I've only brought in 3 fish on it so far, the largest being a 2-foot bonita. A reel of this type should take that in easy stride. This one is crying. It feels like the gears are getting ready to strip. I didn't get a manual with it. I can't find a spare parts list anywhere.I need to find out what the return policy on these things is. This was a case of me being penny wise & pound foolish. So far, the rod has been OK. The reel is the only part giving me trouble at this time. To the guy above who is having problems with the spool backlashing: on this type of reel you need to keep your thumb rubbing on the spool when you cast. It is normal for this type of reel to backlash if you don't thumb the spool. August 26, 2014

Rated 1 out of 5 by broken already The reel couldnt even old up to its first winding on the machine....absolute junk May 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishinf pole and Real The cost of this item (Combo pole and real) was very reasonable. It worked very well except it did not catch fish the first time I used it. (Maybe it was part fault on the fisherman. ) Iwopuld rtecommend this item. October 23, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not very good This rod and reel combo lasted approx. 3 hours before the reel broke. However, the store was great in taking it back and gave me credit for the line etc. August 16, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great pole, horrible reel I purchased this for some basic rock cod fishing since I go out multiple times a year. I loved the set up and it felt great! First two fish no problem, fish number three wasn't the case. I was able to bring in a 4.5 lb cabazon but afterwards I could hear a ball bearing in the reel. Tried a couple more casts and then it stopped reeling in. I had to manually twist the spool to get the line in. The pole felt great, just not the reel. Since I bought the pole two days prior I went back to the store before going home and purchased a combo that was twice the price. July 27, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Complete Garbage! Awful quality - reel broke while adding line, and pole broke on 2nd fish. Spend the extra $ for quality gear - this combo is a complete waste of time and $ June 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product has good features. I haven't caught a fish yet but each time I cast it, it gets a birds nest. Any ideas on witch line I should put on it? January 7, 2013
