Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr_Spin_Cast Very Nice Rig for Beginners!
All 5 of my kids (ages 10-14; 2 girls/3 boys) have this "kit". It is simple to use and they love it. When I instructed then how to set it up, I could not help but take the liberty of doing some "test casts". Only when they complained, "Dad! Can I try it now?" did I reluctantly hand it over. This is a FUN rod and reel! It's is also durable for kids. Good value for beginner to intermediate, but, hey, advanced fisherman will have fun with it too!

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter. In the past we picked up the cheaper child rods and had 2 of them break already. We have gone fishing a few times at lakes around our house and the reel has held up great. No string tangles and no issues yet. Well worth the extra 5 bucks over the cheap child rods.

Just got back into fishing and thought I would step up my game from using 10lb mono to an actual fishing rod and reel combo. Should've stuck with the string, this product sucks, the line constantly tangles in the reel and has a general feeling of inferiority, I replaced it with a Shakespeare "Tiger" and I'm loving it. The tackle box is nice especially for beginners like me but that's it.
