Rated 5 out of 5 by Sean from Outstanding combo I bought this rod/reel combo because of all the good reviews I've read, and the price. I am thoroughly impressed. A great job by Mike Iaconelli and Abu Garcia. The reel is incredibly smooth. The rod seems kind of flimsy, but very durable. The combo itself is light, and just looks cool. It feels great fishing with it. I even caught my record fish with it. My only concern is that I can't cast as far as my $12 Wal-Mart Shakesphere combos. But, still, I can cast pretty far. All in all, a very good purchase for a very good price. And it's not just for younger people. Very highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BowfinMike from NEVER GIVE UP!!! I have been catfishing and trash fish fishing for over 30 years and for the challenge and sport of it, I like a medium action rod and reel. My last "medium" action rod and reel broke due to ware and tear of fishing the heck out of it. When I spotted this combo, I knew I had a winner. Proved it today (3-17-12) catfishing. Put 6 lb test spiderwire mono on it and caught 25 channel catfish from 1/2 lb to 5 lbs. This combo handled all the fish with no problem. I have a winner and will purchase another one as soon as my local Academy puts it on the floor or shelf! Great rod and reel combo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jiggz from AWESOME FOR THE PRICE Me and my girlfriend have caught everything on this combo from Crappie to Northern Pike and of course BASS! Casts well and can handle bigger fish if you use it correctly(set drag and keep pressure on the fish) it is really fun landing 3+ lb bass. More recently we spooled lighter braided line and use it for weightless plastics. Plus the pole looks cool. The price is right on, I wish they would come out with a 6'6" combo for around the same price, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Thanks ABU GARCIA!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NJ angler from pretty awesome combo! i was shopping around looking for a new pole, when i came a cross the ike dude. what really caught my eye was the white finish, it was just a sharp looking rod. when i got it home i kinda thought it looked flimsy, but when i took it fishing the next day i found out that this thing is pretty tough. casts perfectly caught a couple decent size bass. the only thing i didnt like about it is the little cartoon character on it, kinda makes its seems like its for little kids. overall a great buy

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aaron Joseph from A great piece of equipment I just purchased this bad boy a week ago. I have fished it maybe 4 times now. I bought it for some night time bass fishing. The sensitivety is unreal. I caught a smallie and it gave me quite a fright when I felt the action take over and reeled that bass in. It was a great experience to feel that fight. So I can only imagine how much fun it will be when I get that big lunker out of the water. I love the combo and will always stand behind in abu garcia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bubba from Abu craftsmanship number 1 I found this rod n reel at a local store and fell in love with it! Apon picking it up i noticed the good price on this exelent rod so i snagged it! Its very smooth and casts with ease. Well balanced and feels good in the hands.works awsome with any brand line and performs well day after day. In a nutshell, you cant just ignore an abu for that price but then again, you can never put a pice on abu garcia craftsmanship! Abu garcia- for life

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont tell Jr First off let me go on record that i did buy this to share with my sons. Truth is it has become my all around go to combo. I love that I can match distance casts with someone using a 9 ft noodle rod. Its got nice backbone for setting hooks yet its nimble enough for trout dough. Oh and lures ... talk about finese pitching. Pick one up and check it out. Its $30! Not to mention Ikes modern style and flare set it over the top. Never Give Up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great combo for $30 This combo was my first bass setup. I have to say that I love the rod, it's light balanced, strong, and versatile. The reel is okay, I have had issues with the black rubber bushing on the bail roller catching my line occasionally, and similar to my cardinal S20, deep running crank baits will make the reel sound like it has a knocking in it. Overall, this is a great setup for live bait fishing and wacky rigging.
