Rated 4 out of 5 by yoodle Great Rod not so great reel
Bought this for my 6 YO daughter, the Rod is great. The reel lasted about 3 hours at most. Replaced the reel with a Zebco 22 Ladies.... And Cajun line, since no one makes pink line red would have to do.
Very impressed with this setup. Easy to cast, maintain and maybe more importantly hard to break. She has caught a lot of sunfish, panfish and the likes with this combo.

This rod is great for kids. It is very durable and takes a beating. It is also the perfect size for them to use for several years and it lasts. The only downfall is the reels. The reels that come with this combo are completely useless. They do not cast well, do not retrieve well and all three combos I bought the reels broke during the first use. For the price, it was worth it to buy this combo and then just replace the reels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pond fisher Great for a beginner
I bought the Shakespeare Ugly Stik Junior for my daughter who is six years old. I had previously bought her a smaller one with only two eyes and it did not work as well. I let her practice in the yard before I took her fishing to get use to how to cast it. We went fishing and it worked well. We could cast it a long ways and she had fun reeling in those 7 fish she caught on her first outing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by eric great rod, not so good reel
I was looking for an ugly stick that was small enough for my 3 year daughter daughter to graduate from those cheap cartoon character rods. I like the size and quality of the rod for a young child. I bought this with the intention of switching the reel since the reel that comes with it is really cheap. I would only recommend this if you don't mind spending $15 to replace the reel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lunchpail Not worth the money
Bought this fishing pole for my daughter. Got it home tried showing her how to use it and it just fell apart. I buy alot of Shakespeare fishing poles and this was the only one I had a problem with. Took it back and got a different Shakespeare set up for my daughter and it works great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Julie The reel was not working the first time she used it
We got this pole as a gift for our granddaughter who lives in puyallup Washington for her birthday. We went fishing for her birthday on Easter and the reel was broken from the start very frustrated. I hope they are able to return it to a Dicks in Washington. I couldn't find the receipt and I purchased it in Meridian
