Top Positive Review


Reading the negative comments is laughable. This is a $35 combo. If it were $200 i could understand thinking the reel would be nicer or the action of the rod better? Its a rod and reel for $35. I own 2 already and are 6 years old and just bought another. They are that nice and durable. It’s not like my St.Croix / Penn or Orvis / Loomis but why would it be? It is a great little kit with a decent rod and reel. I like the soft case because it fit better when traveling but being mindful it is flexible and can damage your eyes on the rod if not careful. The tackle case is small but you can cut the foam out larger to fit a plano box. There is plenty of room. We spooled our with braid and land 20Lb. fish with not problem at all. Don’t over think the purchase it’s a $35 combo easily worth $60-70. The telescoping style wear out and retract with larger fish. This one does not. Great combo and great price.

Top Critical Review


Bought this combo for a short trip to Alaska for trout and grayling fishing and used it quite a bit. The rod performed great; no issues with action of it and it was strapped onto ATV quite a bit and still held together admirably. The reel on the other hand had inconsistent performance. It was noisy and at times and it was hard to lock the reel back after casting like it was stuck; to the point where I had to manually move the bail manually before reeling it in. Also a couple of times the drag wouldn’t lock in so I had to reel constantly of the fish would just drag the line out. Maybe I got a bad reel or there was some sand or dirt somewhere that I didn’t see to clean? Who knows. I also used a few different types of line (braided, mono, fluoro). I do like the compactness of the combo.

Overall, I wasn’t expecting high-end performance for a relatively inexpensive combo. If it weren’t for the reel durability problems that I experienced, it would be a five-star rating. But the reel in kind of an important aspect of the setup for successful fishing. I bought my son a different combo set (different brand), and he had no problems at all using it in the same environment (rough use, strapped to ATV, same locations and fish, etc).

So based on my experience, I would probably have to recommend shoppers who are looking for a portable combo to consider other sets.

Customer Questions & Answers


is the reel reversible for leftys?
Answer: Yes you can flip the crank handle for left or right.

would a 14 year old enjoy this for fishing in
neighborhood lake?
Answer:

Sure but this is more of a travel kit for backpackers or just to throw in the truck to have with you. I wouldn’t recommend this for a kid even as old as yours since the pole come’s apart in so many place’s it is fragile and needs a little more attention to detail otherwise half the pole may end up in the water. if I ma??

is this the whole kit with reel and rod combo? or just the bag?
Answer: This is a complete kit which includes the rod, reel and bag.

How difficult is it to attach the reel to the pole? How is it done?
Answer: It’s really easy to attach the reel. There is a reel seat in the handle with a threaded collar that screws down to hold the reel securely in place. Once you have it in hand, you’ll instantly see how it’s done.

How secure are the different pieces? Would you consider this pole good quality?
Answer: I have never had problems securing all the pieces together. Take time to assemble them. The pole is of good quality.
