Rated 3 out of 5 by Sam The line often gets tangled in the reel. I would love to love this item except I can't because the line very often gets tangled in the reel. I started using the reel perhaps with to much line on on it as it wold slacken "loop" off of the spindle and get tangled in the reel. I progressively decreased the amount of line on the spindle to lessen the amount of "looping" but ultimately was left with a pretty short cast. The problem may be user error but I can't quite figure a solution. August 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by scubafiend Our son loves it. it's great for the money, easy for him to use light weight.....would recommend as a 1st time pole August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Firefighter5701 Very surprising. Got my girlfriend and I each one to do river and tight space fishing, was very surprised at how well it has held up, have had the pole bent almost in half and it held strong, I love it. July 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by MJ great starter combo I love the Ugly Stik quality of rods.. this combo is a bit more pricey than the typical $25-30 combos, but worth it.. don't overfill the spool, it is small and will birds-nest on you.. fill 15 yards light.. great for my kids and for local pond fishing..

Rated 1 out of 5 by BigG CHEAP REEL!!! I bought this combo on SUNDAY. I caught seven bass and the reel broke, today is MONDAY. The reel didn't even last me a day of fishing!! The Ugly Stik pole is really good but the reel is junk. You're better off buying the pole separate and putting your own reel on it. June 23, 2014

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bassking947 Handle broke I got this rod and reel combo about month ago. It's was working fine until I hooked a big fish. I was reelin it in and all of a sudden the handle snapped and broke off. Cheap plastic. June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by JimJim Great Rod for the money Been fishing since I was a child was sponsored at one point but just got away from fresh water and only fished salt water till this yr my step son wanted to get into fishing. So I bought this rod. You can never go wrong with an ugly stick. June 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by H pleasantly surprised I was able to set the rig up as we headed out on the boat. The design and balance are perfect. Feeling the fish hit and then bringing them in was a delight. great purchase and completely satisfied. May 28, 2014
