Rated 3 out of 5 by Shane Decent Rod, Bad Reel
The rod has good feel and the casting accuracy is superb. I feel like you could get comparable rods for much cheaper though. The reel is below average quality and I would strongly recommend getting the rod with a different reel. I would suggest getting skipping this combo because of the price and the reel quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jerho1988 What a Combo!!!
I bought this rod and reel combo last week to take out kayak fishing and it did not let me down. It has great sensitivity and play for wacky style and finesse fishing and a strong back bone for setting the hook. The first fish I caught was a 9 lbs bowfin followed by 3 bass ranging from 1 to 2 lbs.
The micro-guides are both a pro and a con. while I was able to cast with greater precision I was not able to cast as far. But considering all the pros, I thought it was worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AHay Rod: Great, Reel: Meh...
Love the rod, aside from being a little unwieldy on the kayak at times, it seems to have a good combo of whippiness and sensitivity w/o being overly bendy.
The reel seems a bit sloppy to me however and has a good amount of resistance to closing the bailer unless cranking at exactly the right angle.
Still pretty nice combo for the money, but I could see replacing the reel at some point in the future.
