Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS I bought this 4 months ago and the rod broke on a hook set about 10 inches from the tip, and every time I cast, it backlashes so bad that the line snapped when I casted. If you are going to buy this, SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DO NOT BUY THIS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use for both beginner and avid fishermen I bought this combo for my 11 year old son. He always wanted to have baitcast reel like mine, but he was not good at casting it. I hesitated to get him a baitcast combo, because I knew I had to untangle his reel all the time. I researched online and came across this combo. This combo has 2 brake systems that works perfectly to reduce backlash. Inner dial controls a rim that contacts brush looking brake unit on the spool and I think this gives most friction when you cast. The outer dial controls regular magnetic brakes. When we first used the combo, we set both controls max position and my son made "0" backlash out of almost an hour cast. Then we lowered magnetic setting and got more casting distance. Even with both setting at max, we had decent casting distance. When we lowered inner control setting, my son had a few backlashes, but the backlashes were pretty shallow and we can untangle easily. Overall, I'm very happy with this combo and now my son is proud owner of baitcast combo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big mistake After watching several YouTube videos I purchased this combo to reduce the learning curve of using a baitcaster for the first time. I'm a pretty athletic guy and have never had trouble learning new things but I couldn't get this reel to cast properly at all. My max distance was about 15 yards and I had countless bird's nests. After two days of frustration I returned it to Academy and purchased an Abu Garcia BlackMax with which I've practiced for a couple of hours and have only had one bird's nest. I was very pleased that the Academy staff also threw in a spool of monofilament to replace what I had put on the reel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the rod and reel are amazing material I bought this rod and reel and I'm glad I did with this I did many things with its flexibility blending.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ineffective I purchased this combo based on its claims to "mentor" a person learning to use a bait casting reel. It is a very frustrating reel to operate. My son became very discouraged when trying to use it. I reset and readjusted the reel multiple times, but was never able to set it where it would cast a bait over ten feet. I decided to use it myself to see if I could get it set correctly. After multiple attempts and way to much time untangling the spool I realized that this reel is ineffective at what it claims to be. You would be better off short spooling a name brand reel until you learned to use a bait caster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first baitcaster, not my last! I grew up watching my dad and uncle claim these types of reels were terrible. I mean, seeing their frustration over these worthless reels stopped me from fishing. Twenty years later I decided to attempt to conquer this reel. Why would I buy an expensive setup if I will hate it too? I bought this combo and after watching some youtube videos, I became proficient, even good with it. Pitching and flipping... Good enough that I convinced my uncle's son to try pitching mine. A week later, he was the proud owner of one too. Bottom line, if you aren't sure how to use one of these, this is a great combo. The reel is super smooth and flinging it is a breeze. One of the best reels I have and would buy another if the wife didn't shop with me.

I just bought this rod and was reeling a fish in and the tip of the rod broke about 1 inch from the second to last eye. Is this pole lifetime warranted?
