Affordable Entry Level Starter PackageSomeone bought me this Rod Package for a present because I was looking forward to learning how to fish, but up to that point I had zero experience with the sport and didn't want to commit a ton of money if I did not end up enjoying fishing. This package includes everything needed to get started at an entry level price point and after six months of use it is still working just as well as the first day I received it. I will end up getting something more mid-high end, but this Rod Combo is still going strong and hasn't given me any excuses to replace it.

good rod, bad reelI've had this rod for a couple years and have been pretty satisfied. However I replaced the reel with a much smoother 10 bearing Gander Mountain guide series. The rod is light and easy to store and transport because it breaks down into two pieces. Great for small streams and ponds when you don't need to cast far and a shorter rod is easier because of vegetation on the shore. Good rod, the reel is not great, but this is a great combo to buy to begin trout and sunfish fishing.
