Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 88 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poor quality. I ordered online and picked it up in store and as soon as I got home with it and started spooling it with line I noticed that the reel seat on the rod was cracked. I took it back the same day and exchanged it for another Black Max/Vengeance rod and reel combo. The same day I took it out fishing and noticed that my line was getting rough and frayed. After further examination I found that the ceramic lining on the inside of the tip top eye was half gone and chewing up my line with the sharp edges. This time I took it back for good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Combo This is a very light and effective combo. The reel is smooth and the rod is very sturdy. Goes along with the quality Abu Garcia. August 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great price with rebate. Reel is better than I expected. I have already had to replace 3 rods because the front eyelet ceramic insert keeps popping out. The first rod was never used, it came from the factory with insert missing. Dick's was very helpful in replacing rods. August 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent combo for the price! Honestly the reel could be better but I understand they are trying to sell these at a more affordable price. I love the vengeance rod by Abu Garcia. I tried one earlier this year and it's been holding up to some of my bigger catches this year. The rod normally costs at 49.99 and with the rebate you get a decent baitcast reel for just 30$ more. Can't beat that August 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pole Love it! My first bait cast! Hard to get use to but getting the hang of it! August 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Re-earned faith Bought the Ambassador 6500 and hated it! Took it back to Dick's and they exchanged for this Black Max no questions asked. This reel re earned my trust in Ambassador and in Dicks. Great reel at a great price and my new favorite sporting goods store . August 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rod and reel My first Baitcast rod and reel and I love it. Can cast super far and haven't bird nested it yet. Caught a big 6lb bass my first time out with it and brought it in like a champ. Will be buying another one soon. July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Snazzy Never had a baitcaster before and always wanted to try one. Saw this on sale w/ $20 mail in rebate so I bought it in store. Casts smoothly, far and wide and the pole seems solid. Already caught a couple of 20" pike and some cats. Easy to use once you learn about the braking system, etc. and how to reduce backlash. July 22, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Abu Garcia Black Max/Combo I bought this rod and reel for my twelve year old Grandsons birthday, he loves it but I have had to replace the line and when he casts the reel does not seem to go very far. Could there be something he is doing wrong? The same when I try it. Any suggestions. July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for the beginner or experienced Well the first pole I recieved had a broken reel, after waiting over two weeks I recieved my new one.The box was destroyed, I was upset for sure but to my surprise the pole was ok. Now for the looks and feel of it, fantastic pole for the price and feels sturdy. I'm a first time bait caster user and did not backlash or birds nest on my first day using this thanks to some youtube setup reel videos and the very sound combo. Think i'm fluffen you, pick one up watch some vids and you'll be a top angler in no time! July 11, 2014
