Eh... A few years ago, I needed several new rods and didn't want to spend a fortune on them. I found the Mega-cast and decided with a $49 price tag (price has risen since) I couldn't go too terribly wrong. Well the rod was absolute garbage. The thing weighed about a pound and killed my arm trying to cast with it during a tournament. However, the reel is probably one of the best reels for braided line I've used in a long time. When i tried to put Mono-filament line on it, the reel had a hard time braking and I ended with a lot of line in the trash can. Although, Braided line threads like a dream through the reel and I still use the reel for heavy cover. In conclusion, Save the $10 and just get the reel by itself. That's why the combo gets a 2. reel itself gets a 4. October 7, 2014
The reel The rod is excellent but the reel is not durable at all. First time using it I tagged a nice 3 lb bass but the front part of reel that connect to the rod broke while trying to land the fish. I manage to get the fish but the reel is now useless and no way to return it because I threw the paperwork out. Very disappointed with the quality of the reel. September 18, 2014
Decent i purchased this rod and real combo 2 weeks ago and only took it out once since then it casts great it reels in nicely overall it is a good deal for the money the reason I only gave it a 4 out of five is because of the right hand retrieve only August 24, 2014
Great machine This lure is the best.Catches lots of bass I caught 3 bass in12 minutes June 22, 2014

Hi, thank you for your inquiry. The 6’6” medium heavy rod is a good all around type of rod, which works well for most techniques and lure types. Great for Bass Fishing, Catfish, and much more.

A: 
You probably need two rigs. A small spinning combo for panfish and a heavier baitcasting rig for bass and catfish. If your unfamiliar with a baitcaster, a medium sized spinning combo will work for these species. Just make sure the rig you choose can handle up to 17 lb test line for catfishing.

A: 
Ofcourse. The rod and reel are not really what determines if its good at doing what, it all determines your set up. top water is good with braided line because it floats, crankbaits id suggest you use florocarbon. Florocarbon lines sink so in a situation you want the bait to drop easier then id say use floro. I typically use spinner bait and frogs, i have no issues using braided for both. Personal preference
