broke reel handle Bought this for my father in-law he used it 5 times. Caught some fish, then he went to the beach for some surf fish got a bite set hook and then tried to reel in, at that moment the reel handle brome at the spindle. Returning it and getting something better quality.. February 9, 2015
Reel problems Having trouble with keeping reel tight after only a couple uses. The handle is loose and sloppy and the rotor retaining nut came loose during second use. January 22, 2015
very nice product Very nice product for the price! I woyld definitely purchase another product like this in the near future January 14, 2015
Nice Rod This is a very nice rod for the price. I would recommend this rod to anyone who is considering a purchase. Dicks also has a large selection but this one was the one that caught my attention. January 14, 2015
good for saltwater size fishing I wanted a combo pair to travel with for a charter trip - avoiding the cheap equipment you find on party boats. The reel needed to handle 15 - 20lb line, which is no problem here. This isn't meant to be compared to pricier $50 reels, but I thought it handled much better than others in this same price range. The rod length was perfect for taking on airflights, while being just long enough for saltwater boat casting. December 11, 2014
Great fishing Rod! I cought a 38lbs 44 inches Stripe Bass on Block Island,RI. And a second one. 4 pounds lighter. The fishing Rod lost a screw but Dick's replace it with the warranty!! Thank you guys for a great service! I had no problem at all!! Just went to the store and the told me to get an other Rod!! Thank you!! September 17, 2014
Mixed opinion so far I purchased 2 of these combos. the price is good, I used both of them once and they worked fine, although the reels are a bit flimsy. The second time I used them, the reel of one of them would not turn. I gently moved it a bit to see if there is something obstructing it and a small metal ring fell off. after that, the reel would turn but did not lock. I returned that pole and paid the difference for an Ugly Stick.I would still recommend the product for the price but I do not expect the reel to survive two seasons. September 11, 2014
Great for the $$Price$$ The South Bend Competitor 2-Piece Spinning Combo gives the sportsman the features they need at an affordable price. The 2-piece combo has a fiberglass blank rod construction with ceramic line guides and a nifty spinning reel that has bearings for a smooth cast & reeling in your trophy fish (lol)... Bottom line.. its affordable & great for your kids, so they don't ruin Dad's favorite fishing equipment. So while your here pick up some affordable lures too.. September 9, 2014
a good value Bought 3 ar the same time for Grandsons. They are not experienced fishermen, but, with a little demonstration, they were able to cast and operate the reels successfully. This is a fairly priced combo. August 27, 2014
Greear rod and reel and excellent price I use this rod twice a week for surf fishing. I have caught 3-4 foot blacktip and bonnetheads on it and its still holding strong. If your looking for a cheap pole yet great combo then go pick one up and you wont be let down. Actually bought another one last week and am pleased with it as well. August 19, 2014
