Quantum Xtralite Spinning Combo
Great ultra light rod!
Great Ultra light rod I picked up at Dick's Sporting goods in Woodbury, MN specifically for casting ultra light crank baits and jigs for crappies. So far it's stacked up to what I wanted to get out of it. Extremely light and light action set up which has made for some fun days on the water even catching the accidental 26" pike it has held up. New reel needs to be freshly lubricated before use to improve performance.

Spinning rod is great, the reel is garbage.
On my first fishing trip with the new combo the reel completely fell apart, literally.
The screw holding the bale on came off and I had to search the bottom of the canoe
for the screw, metal washers and a clear plastic washer. Have you ever tried to locate
a clear, tiny plastic washer on the bottom of a canoe???
Luckily I found them all, I think.

GREAT ultralight setup!!!!
What a great product! I read the bad reviews, but took a shot anyway. I was able to pull out crappie after crappie, and even managed to haul in a 5 lb. catfish on 4 lb. line. It made every fish feel like a fight, and I could feel every hit on the line. The reel never struggled, either! GREAT combo, Quantum!!!!

Expected a little more.
Nothing special. Low price option that does what you want it to do. Nothing more. I wouldn't buy again. Would have liked a little more value.

cheap rod but okay reel
i got this rod and it broke the first time i used it on a small trout. so i thought it was a defect and returned it. i used the new one they gave me and it broke again at the same spot, the tip.the reel is ok but nothing amazing

could have a better constructed rod. seems a like it will fly apart when casting.

Light, Compact, Fragile
This is the second rod and reel combo I have bought. The first was an Abu Garcia, the rod snapped in the center on that one. On this one the tip broke so buyer beware. Otherwise it's great for fishing small streams. Where there is not a lot of room to move. Perfect for stocked streams. All and all there are better rods and better reels. But the price is hard to beat. Just be careful with it.
