This process also adds flexibility, eliminating premature breakage and stress on the wrist.

Line recovery in inches per handle turn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DustinDennis Great for the price
I took a leap to purchasing this cheap combo for a musky setup/flathead combo. I loaded it with 30lb fluorocarbon, on the 7'6" heavy rod/reel combo and I am impressed with the balance, weight and handling of the rod. There are a few things that I wished were different. The drag isn't a heavy drag system, little light. Also, the spool sensitivity is pretty light, not able to tighten spool up, but being that I am avid baitcaster man, I am able to cast it well, but I would not recommend for someone new to baitcasters with this combo. The bait clicker is a little quiet for my liking, but I think I can adjust that by modifying the clicker.
Overall, if you are comfortable with a baitcaster and need a heavier rod/reel combo for cheap, I would highly recommend this combo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Comoncents Worst Reel Bass Pro Makes...
The drag broke many times. Switched it out for a new one yet it happened again. Even the employees at Bass Pro told me to never buy the reel. I should have listened.
The rod is a solid rod though.
But stay away from this combo. Go the extra mile and get one of the Abu round reels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OklahomaCats Very Nice
I bought this rod/reel combo to do some bluecat fishing and I have to say that I am VERY impressed with them so far. I know a guide here in Oklahoma that uses these reels almost exclusively and he says the quality is unmatched for the price and I have to agree. when I need new/replacement setups I will most certainly buy another of these rigs. Thanks Bass Pro!

Bought this combo to take saltwater fishing in Florida and was really surprised how good it was,I was using a 4oz sinker on 50 lb. Excel line and I had no problems at all (caught everything from Sea Trout to Octopus and throw in some Sheephead) this set up is such a good deal i'm gonna order another set in MH ( I bought Heavy the first time) and I can say They Will Do The Job!
