Bass Pro Shops Crappie Maxx Junior Rod and Reel Spincast Combo
Not real impressed
I took two boys to a youth fishing tournament. I purchased one of these rods for each.We quickly found that they knotted up within the reel. We did have a Bass Pro employee install new line for us so we would be prepared. Not sure what the deal is, but can not honestly say a good purchase. If I didn't bring two of my own rods for the boys to use, we would have had a very short tournament.

Worst purchase ever
Before i even took it out fishing, it broke.It doesnt reel properly sometime unless you pull on the line and when i opened the reel cover the wheel inside that lets out line just got stuck into place when i pressed the button.So i dont recomend buying this combo especially for a kid.And if you are an intermediate angler, dont buy a spincast.You will be better off buying a spinning reel that doesnt break that easily!!

My little guy was sure proud of his first "big boy" rod and reel (meaning no cartoon characters on it!)
The second time out, the rod broke as he was tugging his lure out of the moss. It had only 6-lb line on the reel so it should have broken the line before the rod. It wasn't a snap. It just kind of crumbled at the midpoint.

I have ordered two of these poles for my 6 year old son and both The reels do not function. I would not recommend this product especially for a child.
