Rated 5 out of 5 by Sixfalls from Great light bass rod. I bought this for my son when he graduated highschool. I bought it for a light crappie rod, and it has done will with that, but recently he has been wrangling Bass with it. It is smooth, and has a very even drag. The rod is ultra sensitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dylan Gibbs from AMAZING casting I bought this reel rod combo about 2 months ago, but moved it to a flueger trion with Berkeley 14 lb test ultra cast braided line, and boy does it cast like a beauty! With a 3/8 ounce weight on there, I casted 100+ feet with this. Also, great kayaking combo with it being light weight and durable. I take it into brackish water, and it holds up. Can catch reds and trouts all day with this thing, and never get tired from casting! 10/10 best combo!

Rated 2 out of 5 by koda_man_55 from Very brittle rod I bought this rod and reel combo in May 2015 and I used it once, within that time of using it it broke, maybe it was just a fluke but today I was fishing and another one of the same type of rod broke in the same spot!!! Please address the issue A.S.A.P

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bigmuff33 from Solid. Versatile. I purchased the 7'/2pc rod set in medium and it can handle just about all types of fishing. It's a little heavier than I was anticipating but it allows me to cast heavier jigs and bucktails which is nice when trying to fish windy and heavier current situations. I have a 12lb Berkely Flourocarbon XL line on the spool and have fished small lakes, the Delaware River and the NJ coastline without missing a beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott S from The last one I purchased only lasted 30 years. Yep I bought a Abu Garcia Cardinal combo in 1985 and a spring finally broke in it last year. The pole got run over some 20 years ago. The reel was getting rough over all so I wont try to fix it. I realize all products have become cheaper in quality since then so lets hope I get at least get 20 years out of the next one I buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Speedk2 from Smooth Reel This combo has a very smooth reel, but the rod isn't anything special, it was a much heavier rod than I expected but it handles well.
