👤The name is synonymous with fishing. Their newer stuff has been bad for so long that people like me look for their older stuff at yard sales and flea markets. I've been using a lot of Shakespeare stuff for budget fishing, but it's been hit and miss. Every good Shakespeare in my shed needs to be thrown. I can't afford the Pflueger reels, but they are my go to whenever I can. I ordered it because my wife wanted it and wouldn't settle for anything else. I didn't think much of it because it had the Zebco name on it. Throw the line that came on it and put a quality line on it. Quality line isn't all that expensive and it makes the reel work well. It casts great, reels great, and hasn't had a single issue with the 12lb test that I threw on there. It impressed me so much that I ordered one of these reels for myself to replace a good Shakespeare that took me about 6 seasons of fishing to wear out. This combo is as good as my Pflueger President and is half the price. Will it hold up over time, only time will tell, but it sure looks and feels like it is built for it. Quality on a budget is what you have found.
👤It will be taken out for the first time this Friday. It got stung on something, but the fishing line was not the culprit. I want it because it will let me post it without it.
👤The reel is easy to cast and the rod is nice, I got this for my son. The size is perfect for many species. Light enough to catch fish on trout streams, but not so light that you can pull average size bass and catfish out of the pond. Well made, like you would expect from a Zebco.
👤Can't wait to try this rod and reel, it's a balanced rod and reel. Can't beat the price. Thank you. Everyone should own a rod and reel. A spot on casting with a flick of the wrist. Thank you!
👤I bought this for myself so my family would know it was mine. The reel is very smooth when casting and the rod is easy to assemble. It seems like it will hold up well, even though I only had it a week. All in a great purchase.
👤The rod and real are both handsome. The casting function occasionally stops in mid-flight near the end of the cast. You miss your target because of this. There is a drag on the operation. When cranking, it's not very smooth.
👤The tip broke off the first time it arrived. We decided to use it as a short pole because my son was so excited. It broke in the center. The box that Amazon sent was cracked in the center. These things are garbage. Don't buy it!
👤My wife uses the newest set-up that she has been using for years, and she loves it. The rod and reel works well on all fish. I bought this for her because she wanted another one. Her biggest fish so far is a 10lb.1oz. largemouth bass that is a record on a lake in east Texas. This is a good combo for price and quality.
It's the best gift to give to a father, son, husband, fiancée, or boyfriend for Christmas. Do you want to buy a single rod or reel? The ASIN is B01MQ1MRIA or B07YFP8KV3. The Toray IM6 Graphite blank is light and sensitive and designed to provide exceptional value and performance for all fishermen. All of the combinations come in lengths from 6' to 8' for Bass, Trout, Panfish and even Salmon. All models with premium O-ring inserts perform perfectly with both mono or braided lines, and are made of strong and durable STAINLESS- STEEL. The lightweight frames look great and keep the weight down for a perfectly balanced rod blank. The rods feel great in your hand and provide all day comfort and a sure grip while providing for a perfectly balanced rod with the use of the contoured EVA handles and fighting butt. The 6' to 7' all-purpose combo and full-length EVA handles on the 7'6” medium heavy and 8' heavy action combo are perfect for catfish, salmon/steelhead or other large fish. Each combo includes a perfectly matched KastKing Centron spinning reel that matches the rod and the type of fish that it is intended for. The smallest reel size is 2000 and goes all the way to a powerful 5000 that is perfect for the heavy action rod intended for catfish, salmon and Steelhead. The KastKing Centron has a 5.2:1 or 4.5:1 gear ratio, 9+1 Maxi-Dur ball bearings, anti-twist line roller, and a light weight graphite frame. The reel action is smooth and the drag system is powerful.
👤I bought this combo for my son. He asked for a pole for his birthday. I wanted to return it because it was expensive. He deserved a nice combo. Did I listen to the reviews that said the tip snapped? I bought it anyway. He loved the combo the first time, but the second time the tip broke off and he was stuck. I contacted kastking and sent photos, video, and a copy of my invoice. The customer has to pay for shipping and handling back after they send back a pole. If they find it's a manufacturer issue, that's all. They will only charge you half of the cost of the rod, plus shipping and handling, if they find it's your fault. If you divide the cost of shipping by the cost of rod, you get a total of 75.00 dollars. Amazon sells this for 70.00 dollars. That is a warranty. I was sent a link to purchase a new tip. The new tip is just as bad as the old one. I think there is a reason for the negative reviews. I have been sending multiple emails to customer service and have no solution, but I have to pay a lot of money out of pocket.
👤This combo really impressed. I bought this combo to take to my cottage in upper Michigan and use to catch Muskie, which is the only place I would use it. The braided line is highly recommended. I used a swim bait for the first time and grabbed a large stick within 10 minutes. I snapped the first 6 or 7 inches of the tip of the rod off after pulling up hard to break loose from the snag. I own a couple other medium poles that have dragged up heavier sticks and have no issues with it. It was disappointing considering the usual quality of the products I order, and also confused as this was an 8ft heavy rod I bought for Muskie that is now nothing more then a paperweight. I hope this was a defect and will be contacting Kastking to see if there are any options.
👤I bought this combo for my boys. We took it to the jetty to fish. The rod is very strong. A boy can easily cast a 1/2 oz spoon 30,40 yards away. The drag is also great. He caught a keeper on a really slow day.
👤As soon as I got this, I braided it with 10lb braid and hit the river. I was going to cast in to see how well Uncle Jim's worms stayed on the hook, since the river was in flood warnings. The combo has a nice balance. No hang or pause on the first crank as bail returns smooth. The river is high. I didn't expect much when I caught this cat. I always worry about the rigidity of newer rods and how they handle pressure from bigger fish. The rod was a winner. He hit the deep fast current. The rod was not being stressed. He would try to run under a log when I got him into calmer water. The Centron combo was great. I lost 2 of my old combos last year and his should be an excellent replacement.

A child's first fishing trip is exciting for both parents. A suitable fishing pole for your kids is important.
👤Product is great for a first reel. My husband wants to take our sons fishing. We bought this for our two sons. These will be perfect for them. The fishing poles came quickly. They were nicely packaged. Everything came as promised. We were able to put the pools together. Our 8 year old is left handed and this will work for him as well. I am very happy with our purchase. Can't wait for my son to try it on his birthday.
👤I haven't used this yet, but will update once I have. I have not fished in a while. I decided to give my 13 year old son a beginners kit for Christmas because he wanted to fish. When the package arrived, I thought it was impossible for this kit and three other things to fit in. I was skeptical when I opened it, expecting small fishing poles. These fishing poles are large enough to fit in a small bag. I was surprised. It looks like a good quality kit for beginners and I like how it is so small and portable. I am a single mom. I was imagining myself carrying a lot of stuff but this bag had room for extras so I won't need a lot more. I will be trying them out in the spring. I will update once we have.
👤I found this set in advance of my first camping trip with my son. I thought this would be a great set to purchase because it's large to carry and the two rods were purchased together. I spent more time fixing the birds nest than fishing because of the reels. I will blame the first time or two, but after 5 times of fixing the reel and line I will chalk it up to what I paid for. Don't make the same mistake as yourself.
👤These are the worst rods I have ever purchased. I didn't bother to buy anything, I didn't even get to fish. The Barbie fishing rod was better than the garbage rods that I bought for my daughter. Both of them didn't work for me. When you reel in your line jams on every reel. Spend the money and buy a better reel. I wish I hadn't spent the money. Absolutely waste. The reel is in the water. It was broken. First time using it.
👤A beginner fisher here. My personal fishing equipment was never owned by me. The owners of local fishing stores pushed to sell expensive gear. I decided to try the cheap stuff from Amazon first before committing to better gear. It definitely feels flimsy and cheap, but here are my thoughts: 5/27/2021 My item arrived within 1 day from Amazon delivery. Some reviews said it looked used and it arrived rusted and broken. My item was not broken or used. It feels flimsy and cheap but I was able to assemble it. I like the size and portability of the bike. Everything is in a backpack. First time using. Birds were made nest and tangled upon the first 2 reels. It could be my fault for not casting properly or not having a good weight on my line. The reel and rod were reset after cutting off the tangled lines. It worked well from the 3rd castings and the rest of the day. Maybe the reel needed to break in or the fishing line wasn't evenly distributed when I got it. After returning home. I disassembled the rods and reels and oiled them and reassembled them without any problems. I believe oiling will be important. I can sense that the rod is not going to fold properly if it is not maintained well. --- So far, so good. Let's see if it works after the second use.
The KastKing Centron has a 5.2:1 or 4.5:1 gear ratio, 9+1 Maxi-Dur ball bearings, anti-twist line roller, and a light weight graphite frame. The reel action is smooth and the drag system is powerful. Convenient bag. The foam insert is shock-resistant. There is a shoulder strap.
👤The negative comments are laughable. The combo is $35. If it was $200, I would think the reel would be better and the rod would be better. A rod and reel is $35. I own two and am 6 years old. They are durable and nice. It's not the same as my St.Croix, Penn or Orvis. Why would it be? The kit has a decent rod and reel. I like the soft case because it fits better when traveling but it is flexible and can damage your eyes if not careful. The tackle case is small, but you can make it bigger to fit a plano box. There is a lot of room. We used braid and land. The fish has no problem. Don't think the purchase is worth more than $60. The style wears out with larger fish. This one doesn't. The combo and price are great.
👤I wanted a breakdown rod that was light for trout up to 20 inches, and this more than fit the bill. There is a I don't use the carrying case, reel, and lure box. The rod is the real value. Break it down, put a lightweight reel on it, and use rubber bands to bundle it together. I've used it for anything from goldens to cutthroats. It was the only rod I had on a 130 mile section of the PCT. The action is not very aggressive for bass. I still caught fish with it, but I was lagging my friend in the count and was wishing for something a little stronger to set hooks. I got a tree and threw the tip section into the lake. I kept catching fish, but the feeling was gone. I called up Okuma and they sent me a replacement. There is a You can't beat the price. I couldn't find a rod that was cheap, light or telescopic. You get a free backup reel. This rod is still blowing away with the value. There are hundreds of fish. The reel was put to use last weekend. It's functional, but not great. I had to tighten the nut on the main shaft to keep the bail from wobbling. The line seems to bunch up on the spool, but this could be from the wobbly bail. The tackle box hasn't been emptied yet. It's too small for a use case.
👤I can't compare this to other rods because I'm new to fishing. I bought this rod when I tried to catch fish on a camping trip. It can be hard to understand what they're talking about when they're talking about a lot of different things. While camping at high-mountain lakes stocked with trout, I got a spool of 2lb monofilament line, a set of swivels, and a handful of spinners that were advertised to be "irresistible" to trout. I researched how to tie the spinners, cast, and fish with the line, which was found on the reel. I got a set of fishing tools, hoping I would catch some fish. A fishing license is also included. I had fun learning how to catch fish, and can confirm that fresh-caught trout makes one heck of a rewarding meal at camp. I learned from other fishermen that I had the handle on the wrong side of the reel and was holding the rod upside down. The guide loops should be oriented beneath the rod, not facing up towards you. I don't think it makes a huge difference, but you have to change the direction of cranking to reel in the line if you switch orientation. If you're new to fishing, make sure to orient the reel and handle it correctly the first time. Make sure to check the rod is assembled correctly. If you heave the upper segments of the rod into the lake, you'll have to reel it back in, hoping that nobody else will see your mistake.
The collapsible design of the Plusinno Portable Telescopic Fishing Rod makes it easy to carry with you. A carry bag protects the pole from getting damaged and makes it easy to carry it. It's the best gift to give to a family member for Christmas. A full kit includes a fishing rod, fishing line, fishing hooks, and accessories.

👤This is a good set for beginners. My son has been asking his dad to take him fishing for years, he is now 15 years old, and my husband is ready to take him for the first time. I decided on this rod for my teenage son because it comes with everything you need, and a handy bag, and it's at an amazing price. It is a simple rod that can be learned quickly. This is the type of reel that I started learning about before moving onto spinning and conventional gear. Overall very pleased! It's lightweight and easy to use.
👤Good setup for beginners. The rod is lightweight but sturdy, it collapses easily, and is stored away in a compact case. The included reel is decent and will probably be used for more fluid casting. Not much space is wasted with the provided case, it will work well for traveling. Recommended.
👤This is the first kit I have ever bought for a child. It comes with complete kits that are needed for finishing. Extra hooks and lures are in a box and come in a carrier bag. The rod is light and easy to install. My son likes it.
👤Excellent purchase. I bought this for my nephew. This was his first fishing rod. He loves fishing. It was very easy and self explanatory. The rod is great for beginners and experienced people. This fishing rod is very good. Light weight and cost friendly.
👤It's great for beginners since it comes with everything you need to start. All in a carrying case. I don't know much about fishing poles. I'm very happy with this purchase.
👤A fishing pole. It is very small with hooks and case. It is easy to assemble and use. It can reach far. An awesome addition to your gear.
👤I was interested in fishing this summer and the kit is amazing. It's easy to work with. It's lightweight and worth the money.
👤I didn't want to spend a lot of money on my kid's fishing gear yet. The kit was perfect. It has everything you need to start. A child can carry a bag with everything packed in it. I can't recommend this kit enough.
👤This will be a great setup if you're new to fishing. The price is for what it comes with. It isn't cheap like a lot of the Amazon ones. It has some weight to it. You have to swap the reel because it's a left or right one. I can't use a lot of the lures down here, but that's okay. You don't have to take three pieces apart. It folds on itself.
It is easy to pack and travel if you have a telescopic fishing pole with you. Don't leave home without a fishing rod. The fishing rod combo is easy to pack into backpacks, luggage, on an airplane, golf bag, motorcycle or just about anywhere you want to go. The grips are designed for kids. Pre-spooled with 6lb line. Practice casting plug included.
👤The reviewers here and on other retailers websites warn against this product. The rod is constructed of good quality and is typical of the Ugly Stik product lines. The rod is 3'8" and handles 3-6 lbs of line. There is a The reel that comes with this is not worth anything. One time, my little girl pushed the button, but the mechanism failed to engage the line for retrieving. It was broken out of the box. There is no quality control on this item. I am so glad I bought the micro reel because I wanted to be able to reverse the reel for my little girl, who is left-handed. I would have had a very sad child. If you want to spend $25 on this rod, it is worth it, but don't expect the reel to be reliable or satisfying. You should pair the rod with a reel of similar quality. I would have paid more for a better product.
👤This is a nice fiberglass rod. It is very difficult to break. The reel is made of plastic and has metal gears. The system has held up well. The drag is completely backed off when you receive the reel. All will be fine if you tighten the star drag next to the crank handle. Many of the negative reviews about the gears are from people who don't understand how the drag system works. I plan to buy two more for each of my young grandsons.
👤This is the second pole we bought. This time, I was very disappointed. It looked like it had sat in a garage. There were dead bugs in the side of the packaging. I should have opened the box before the birthday to make sure it was okay. Grandpa always gives the first fishing pole to the grandson at his birthday party. When we found the junior sets, we were really happy because we had put together the old sets in the past. Not very happy today. After we wiped it up, he took the pole. If the rod is broken, it will be with him. What a terrible gift! Even though the first one was perfect, I am not sure if I will order another one. The rod tip was broken. Whole set up had to be returned through Amazon for credit, so just kept the pole and new pole. We were glad we did because our other granddaughter broke the reel on her second time out. Rods and reels are cheap. She had a broken pole and we had to fix her reel. No more testicles for our kids. We will put a good quality reel on the ugly stick for them to learn from.
👤I ordered this for my nephew's birthday. It is the right size for him. I couldn't find any poles for kids in the store. The reel was not working when we tried it. The reel was cheap and buyers had problems with it. The new one works fine after I exchanged it. I contacted the manufacturer to make sure the replacement pole didn't have the same problem. The manufacturer asked me to send a picture of the pole and reel and a picture of my receipt. They sent me a new reel. The reel that came on this pole is only sold with the pole in this combo. The reel they sent was a spin case reel. The pole is great, but you might have a problem with the reel. I am happy that I was able to get the replacements.

The telescopic fishing rod and other fishing accessories were made with unbeatable quality that helps you tackle every lake, river, pond, and stream with confidence.
👤These are not bass pro shop reels, but they are worth the money. This kit will work. Pleasure or survival can be added to any situation.
👤I thought they were going to be cheap, but I was pleasantly surprised by their quality. I am excited to use them more in the future.
👤I like my new reel. It's easy to assembly and lock in place. I would like to get a new line. I used the line to practice tying knots.
👤It is very portable. I haven't used them yet but they don't seem to be high quality. It may be good for panfish. I will not be using them for anything bigger.
👤I love this set. The lightweighr has rods that collapse for travel. It's very easy to assemble and comes with two full sets, as well as all the accessories you need for a day at the lake.
👤It's great for traveling. Have not used yet. I bet they are strong. It didn't snap. It is easy to keep 2 poles and reels in the car. The bag is large enough for a small tackle kit. Can't beat it.
👤I regret buying it. The line is small and the quality is not good. It broke in two weeks.
👤So far... I haven't found anything I like. You have to disassemble the reels and rode to get them to fit back in. Get better ones at Bass Pro Shop.
The youth fishing rod and reel combo is ideal for the whole family. The construction of fiberglass and Graphite offers lightweight and sensitivity. The carbon fiber drag system is powerful and smooth. The grips are lightweight and designed for smaller hands. Smooth operation is ensured by the machined aluminum spool.
👤I upgraded to the GX2 during the Prime Day promotion. I got a medium heavy rod for bank fishing. I put it with mono line. I might try 6 lbs lines for lighter lures, although it seems to be a good setup. The rod has good sensitivity, but its main feature is its longevity. The UglyStik is almost impossible to break, and you could probably fish sharks with it. I don't think I need to baby it, it's nice for newer fisherman. The reel is smooth and all, but it doesn't stand out as something special. It is a good deal for a combo pack. You can switch the reel when you feel like it. This setup is an entry level do-it-all.
👤The rod is very strong. For the last week, I've trolled for trout and slayed many of them. I bought a 7' combo. I would give a negative star for the reel. The reel is garbage. The line doesn't go on evenly because the spindle on mine isn't low enough. I end up with a bunch of lines. I used a different reel. Amazon Customer Service is great. The combo and headaches are not worth the extra money. I received the replacement combo today. The new line is more evenly distributed. It's still heavy on the bottom. I will update when I get a chance to use it.
👤I got a heavy rod and reel combo. I haven't been fishing since I was 15 and it was great to get back out. I haven't had any issues with casting and sensitivity was pretty good for a pole. I started with mono and now have 50lb braided line. The bail bar is sturdy and should serve me well for many years of fishing. The blue cat was caught with this combo and it handled it well. She pulled hard. I was not worried about breaking the rod. She was put up on the rocks with it.
👤I think I own over 50 fishing poles. I catch fish every week. I picked up two of these for my wife and myself at the last minute while I was in Alaska. We had two afternoons open to use them and they packed well. We caught a fish. 10 to 25 lbs of salmon. No problem. I had 30lb backer and 25lb leaders. I didn't expect them to handle large kings well but they did.
👤Many travel rods today come in a collapsible model that lacks the strength of a traditional rod, or they come in several pieces that don't hold together well. If you use any super-line, you're going to break the rod eventually, and with the latter, you have to constantly adjust the sections. You can use any line with the Ugly Stik GX2 without fear of it breaking. Shakespeare has a great warranty on all of their rods, because they produce quality products that are a joy to use. You will not regret buying it.
👤You'll pay more for this combo everywhere you look. The reel is nothing special and a number of people complained about it. The rod is in line with the other models. They are tough as nails, have a good action, and will last a long time. I bought this combo for my almost 7-year old son who is excited to have a rod like mine instead of the star wars combo he had been using. It casts well and is short enough for a child to handle, but could still be useful as he grows up. The basic model of the reel is a single ball bearing. The rod will continue to be a quality rod for years to come after that, and it will work just fine for the time being. This is a much better rod than most of the other ones you'll find in a kid's combo.
Warm Prompt: Only include one fishing rod and a fishing reel. Carbon fiber mixed with fiberglass makes your fishing pole hard and durable. The EVA Fore grip is for comfort. The telescopic fishing rod is portable and convenient to carry around. Medium power. Power drive gears have high strength. A long body with a large spool and large line capacity is also available. The line capacity is 0.25/200. The model is HA 3000. It's the best gift to give to a family member for Christmas. Do you want to buy a single rod or reel? You can search the ASIN: B07FT29RJS or B07YFP8KV3.
👤Product claimed to have 12+1 ball bearings, but as soon as you open the reel, you won't find a single one. They are marketing their own specifications from high end reels. If you are an avid fisherman, you will know this is a junk rod and reel combo, however, if you are not, you will be unhappy. They don't believe the hype, but they have a lot of reviews. This thing is junk. This shouldn't happen because the rod gets stuck and snaps easily. The products that are #1 in the category for manipulated reviews need to be monitored by Amazon. The product is top rated because of it's reviews. It's cheap so that they can give them away for free in exchange for a review, but this will hurt buyer confidence.
👤This rig is awesome! I walk along the James River on my way home from work and wanted to see if I could catch dinner along the way. The setup is easy to fit into my backpack. Day Two was yesterday, April 20th. I struck out on Day One, but I wasn't surprised that the James is in flood right now. I was surprised to pull a 28 inch, 11 pound Channel Cat from the floods the next day. There is a monster in my tub. I had to hand my pole to a passerby and jump in the river to get it out of the river after it fought me for ten minutes. Didn't have a net. Guess what I'm buying today? The pole and reel performed well. I would buy them again. Please note. The picture shows a rod, ring and bag for robbery. That's why it's so cheap. I did not receive a discount or free merchandise to write this review. My bait was a small piece of hotdog about the size of my thumbnail, smeared in Magic 11-12 catfish bait and hung from a small bobber about six feet from the riverbank.
👤I own a lot of high end gear. There are rods and reels. I wanted a light and inexpensive product and Plussino makes quality products so I thought why not... I can always return it in the right way. I was so impressed when I saw this out of the box. Compared to my $500 set ups, this is up there as far as quality is concerned. I can throw this in a back pack and be able to hike in difficult places now that I have my rods. I could put 3 of these in a back pack with my tackle. I have yet to fish with this set up, but I can tell you that it is going to change the way I pack and carry things. If you fish like I do, you know the smaller stuff better. You can see how serious I am about fishing by looking at my photo. I will follow up after I catch some fish.
👤Was a decent rod for the money collapse. What are you expecting for the price combination rod reel? The drag is not what it claimed, but it was satisfied with the tests and was able to catch a fish. The seller of the pole didn't want a new reel, but the reel was fine. The pole had a warranty on it. The setup was decent but leery with snap and the service didn't want anything to do with the warranty. You may want to spend a bit more on a travel rod.
Warm Prompt: Only include one fishing rod and a fishing reel. The fishing rod blanks are strong.

DOUBLE LOCKING REEL SEAT The reel seat with double locking structure is easy to assemble and disassemble, even kids can do it. When traveling long distances on choppy water, the hood on your reel keeps it in place. It's the best gift to give to a father, son, husband, fiancée, or boyfriend for Christmas.
👤I wasn't sure what to expect with a telescopic rod. I noticed a nice lake that I could fish from while my family and I were walking at the park after daylight saving time ended. The problem was that the rod I brought to the car was sitting next to my wife in the passenger seat. She was annoyed if the line was wet when she sat there and if there was a hook on it. There is a telescopic rod idea. I bought this for $22 on Amazon and am very happy with it. I just leave the setup and open the bail and extend the rod. Ready to catch fish. I caught a small catfish about 2 lbs and it did well. The rod had the strength to pull the "lake slug" even when it was rolling. The rod saves me from having to worry about my passengers and I am happy about that. Great stuff!
👤Junk. I bought it for my trip to the Gulf. It snapped while fishing. The construction is not strong. I don't recommend this brand because I have been saltwater fishing most of my life. I went to Walmart to get a replacement rod.
👤I like the pole. We don't have a large boat to fish on and having a collapsible pole onboard just takes up less storage. We are looking forward to our first trip on the water. It is carbon which makes it light weight.
👤I bought the 6.49 foot rod as a complement to my longer retractable rod to have a more rigid pole in my travel bag and it's worked out well. I use this one for heavier baits. It is capable of setting the hook when using a Texas rig. It gives the needed sensitivity for detecting a bite. I didn't think a spinning setup could work on a Texas rig. I'm able to carry everything I need in a backpack for bass fishing from the side of the road because I use this rig and the other longer pole for top water and lighter tackle. The guides are very easy to follow and open and close. I'm happy.
👤This item is awesome, it can't be more than a couple pounds with the rod and reel together, if that's the case. It's perfect for people who travel a lot and want to relax or try out a new body of water in their free time. I haven't taken it on a lot of trips, but it seems to be able to hold up when I fall. This item is highly recommended. I couldn't on the initial review, so I'll attach some photos later. Stay updated...
👤I have been testing it for the last few days and have caught a few small bass with it. I am a beginner fisherman with 4 other rods. This is probably a medium light with a fast action. The rod is very sensitive. I can feel the movement of the grubs tail swirl and see the tip of the rod rotating as I retrieve. The sensitivity is similar to using crankbaits. This rod casts better than my graphite rod. The ceramic guides are very smooth. I have been using this rod with a 2500 reel and 10lb braid. I can easily cast 30 yards using a jig. The collapsible rod is the biggest selling point. It takes about 15 seconds to align it. If you have to navigate through brush, it's a huge saver. I never collapsed it when I was moving spot to spot. If you need a rod on the go, it's still a neat feature for storage. It works in a regular backpack. The shiny new rod had some quality control issues right out of the box, it was strongly recommended. The box was undamaged. I think it had to be shipped this way. I am not sure how the rod will be affected by the carbon blank with a portion with an obvious deformity. The reel seat is made out of plastic in the pictures. It feels cheap in the hand. The butt of the rod has a threaded cap made out of metal, but I'm not sure why it has a weird little dangling keyring that gets in the way of stuff. If you want to store the rod rigs, you need a hook keeper. The photo that I see lists the recommended line weight for a 6.5ft rod at 5-10 lbs, but it's not printed on the rod, so it's a minor issue. The lure weight is last. You get lash back at the bottom of the rod when you cast with lures/rigs that are less than 1/2 oz. It messes with your casting. There is a decrease in casting distance and feel, but it is still manageable. The verdict is that this rod is going to be my everyday rod until I find something better. The main selling point of this rod is that it is collapsible, but the reason I am changing to this is because of its overall feel and performance. I will update my review once I start landing bigger fish or if I have any problems with the rod. You can check out the video and images I have uploaded. Hopefully this will help you make a better decision.
The youth fishing rod and reel combo is ideal for the whole family. The construction of fiberglass and Graphite offers lightweight and sensitivity. The Clear Tip design has added strength and responsiveness. The grips are lightweight and designed for smaller hands. The front cone has metal gears for added strength.
👤Terrible. There is no positive feeling for the release of the thumbtrigger. It's a guessing game, and if you guess right, it casts decent, or if you guess wrong, it slams into the water. It feels like a tin can full of marbles when you reel it in. Terrible. There is a Rod iscent for what it is worth.
👤The rod is an exceptional value. It's perfect for kids with smaller stature. The combo has a reel on it. Not much. It will work, but I would rather swap out for a Zebco 33 Micro. The reel is not built for abuse.
👤My daughter has a great starter rod.
👤It was lost like that. The one caught around 600 crappie. This is not a new one.
👤Our grandsons first rod was purchased with this rod. Works well for him.
👤There was no end of the rod in the damaged box.
👤My grandson loved fishing with his first fishpole.
👤It was a Christmas present. A great fishing pole.
👤After cancelling and reordering from Amazon, finally arrived. It seems like a good rod. My son is going to catch a big one.
👤No esperaba menos, pero los lances y capturas sin problema es un excelente caa.
