pretty dern good rodI bought this a year ago-ish and i loved the rox. It has a great feel to it and i caught 1 er two off it and it handled nicely. The funny thing is though in my honey holes, i would not catch a single fish of this rod. I would use the same bait as another rod i had out and i still wouldn't catch any. Honestly, I think it was cursed or something. Then one night i got mad and threw it. The rod held up but i think i bent a gear or something like that. needless to say, im buying another reel. all in all a great rod!

Good starter comboI bought this combo a couple of weeks ago. It has been fishing twice. I haven't caught anything, but snagged it a few times. It always pulled free and even though the tip has bent, nothing has broken and it popped back straight as soon as the tension was released.
I only have two issues. The line that comes pre-spooled wants to curl up and twist the first few casts. That does eventually go away. The other thing is that, like pretty much every other reel out there, it's made in China. Your quality mileage may vary.

not worth itI fished on day with it and on the end of the day it broke.. the part where the line spins broke off and the bail fell of.. although i did catch 3 fish its not worth the hassle

does it come prespooled
Asked by: aseay
The Zebco Catfish Fighter 7' Freshwater Spinning Rod and Reel Combo does not come pre-spooled.
However, we do offer a line spooling program. When you initially purchase your reel at Academy Sports + Outdoors, we'll spool the reel with line from our bulk spools. You get up to 300 yards of line free. You may also bring in your own line or purchase line at Academy Sports + Outdoors and we will spool the line on your reel for free.
