Rated 1 out of 5 by Goodluckgoody Cheap, flimsy, garbage
Snapped in half after catching only one fish. It snapped in half hooking the second fish. This product is garbage.

by Jamie Excellent combo
Rod is perfectly balanced and reel is super smooth. Have used it twice now under winter conditions and has performed flawlessly. And for the price, you can't go wrong!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Huebsch79 HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT!!!
You get what you pay for I guess. I was looking for a cheap ultra light rod to fool around with. The line nested up almost every other cast and the rod snapped off at the tip while trying to free my line up from a snag. I brought it back to Dick's and got my money back. It's a nightmare of poor construction and would recommend avoiding this product at all cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by John H. So far so Good
Been looking for a rod and reel combo to cast ultra light lures. When I saw it was rated to cast 1/64oz lures and for $39 bucks figured I couldn't go wrong. For the most part that is true. I first spooled with 4lb Berkley XL cast like a rocket but ended up with so many twist after an hour or so of casting it looked like the line just blew up! Spooled twice more with the same, same result. Line also has a habit of collecting outside the spool on the drag knob if your not careful to make sure the line is in the roller after each cast. Why did I give it 4 stars? Once I put on 8lb Berkley Fireline Crystal and a Florocarbon leader line twist is no longer an issue at all. Still need to watch to make sure line is in the roller and close the bail by hand. Biggest fish so far on the combo 1.5lb smallie and the rod is still intact, make sure your drag is not to tight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cschaffer2 so so fishing combo
the shallow spool holding the line made it easy for tangles and after a couple hours fishing with many tangles I could only cast a few yards. not good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Griperr Fantastic value for a fun ultralight combo!
Love this little combo! Extremely sensitive rod and super smooth reel. I put two pound test on mine and use tiny little plugs and jigs for whatever decides to pounce on them! When they do, the fun begins! The main reason I decided to make this purchase (considering I already have other comparable outfits) was the fact that the rod has that little extended butt feature. Most ultra light rods stop just a few inches past the reel seat (which is fine) the extended butt feature makes this five and a half foot super sensitive rod act and perform like a seven footer... I love it and would definitely recommend its purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lester quantum a poor choice
i purchased one of these rigs and used it for fishing. after the second day of use the rod snapped under 5-6 lb weight. the following day the reel lost a screw during use, rendering it inoperable. i paid 40 bucks for three days of use. not a good deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebbieT5 Love to fish with this rod/reel
I have enjoyed going fishing and using this rod/reel. After using my grandfather's old pole this is really nice!! I can cast really well and it reels in very smoothly!!!
