Rated 3 out of 5 by INfisherman Rod Tip Broke in First Month of Use I purchased two of these combos for my young daughters. The reel is decent quality, especially for the price. It has a very smooth retrieve. I filled the reels with 10lb test monofilament line. The rods have nice features as well, and seemed to be of comparable quality. The rod action is fast, and probably more light than medium. We have fished 5-6 times with the combos. Have caught a lot of fish but none over 2lbs. While packing up after our last trip, I was pulling line through the rod with the drag on a very low setting. The rod broke about 8" down from the tip, without offering any resistance at all. In my forty years of fishing, I have not had a rod break so easily. Ardent does not warranty the rods sold in the combos. I personally fish with St. Croix and Sage rods that are twenty years old, and use the same good or bad fishing habits. So I guess I'd say I can recommend the combo for the price, but just don't expect too much from them. I'll probably buy another combo and hope for the best. At least I'll have a spare reel. When the girls are older, we'll upgrade their gear. July 21, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nick Combo I wasn't crazy about the real that comes on the combo but it is a nice rod.... Make sure everything is tight though June 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by kev77 Rod is great but the reel is not. I am happy with the action of the rod, but the reel gets tangled a lot and does not cast where you are aiming. June 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Firebass Decent combo for the price I love the looks, weight and balance of this combo. It is just a little hard to engage the reel after each cast. Overall it was what I would expect for the price. May 28, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by tanya fishing pole Line keeps getting tangled up. I wouldn't recommend this to children. May 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chad Awesome rod & reel! Great value for the price and the fishouflage is cool. April 22, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ian Okay Sturdy pole, good for 6 lb test. However reel doesn't close easily so line tangles often. Good for northern or a bit larger fish, not so sensitive to pan fish June 25, 2013
