Great UL Combo I got the 7'6" model of this combo and I'm glad I did. The sensitivity of the rod is great, you can feel every pebble jigging off the bottom and you can feel the fish nibbling at your lure. The rod at 7'6" is "floppy" that can be a pro or a con based on your personal opinion, I personally like the "floppy" style in this case; fighting small fish and having a blast when you hook a nice sized fish. Also the softness of the rod allows the fish to hook themselves. Be sure before you buy the 7'6" model that it'll work for you, if you fish areas where there are a lot of trees or other obstructions and tight squeezes it can be tricky casting the 7'6" rod. And now onto the reel, it works, I haven't had a problem with it. Is it anything special? no but for $20 you're getting a great rod and a good reel. I have done all my fishing with the original combo but just put on the reel from my previous UL setup, and that isn't a knock at the reel I just had a better reel not being used. I use 4lb mono(World Wide Sportsman - Camo) and often a 3" slip float or just a 1/32oz Jig. With that I can cast a good distance with the flick of my wrist, just be sure you don't have the wind with you or you may cast across the lake. I have three problems with this: 1. I'd like to see it in a simple color such as Black or White, Yellow isn't for everyone. 2. I was looking to buy two more but was sad to see it's out of stock online. 3. The top part of the rod seems to slip out from the bottom piece. It's happen to me 3 times out of many trips and can be easily fixed by making sure its snug every now and then. The pictures included are all caught with this combo, 15" Trout and 16" Smallmouth Bass. June 28, 2012
excellent rod! i purchased the 7'6" model for drop shotting trout. It has worked wonders for me. The sensitivity of the rod is unbelievable for it's price. Catching small fish like bluegill feels like your fighting a monster. I've caught up to 6lb bass on this rod with no problem. i like using senkos with this rod, it gives them good action when wacky rigged. Casting small light lures is a breeze with this pole. I will buy this rod again in the future for my dad. June 27, 2013
Great noodle rod The reel is surprisingly good and smooth for an inexpensive combo. The rod is very limber and whippy. It is made like an old Eagle Claw fiberglass rod. It has no backbone, and is very flexy. This is a GREAT thing for some kinds of fishing. I use it using a rodholder, for fishing minnows, tightline, right under the boat. Using a small split shot as weight, it puts a nice bend in the rod tip. When a fish hits the bait from below, the rod tip raises, indicating a strike! I catch a lot more fish on this rod, using this technique, than I would with a stiffer rod. I don't think it is sensitive at all, and cant be compared with a graphite rod for sensitivity. But I was not looking for a sensitive rod for this kind of fishing, because that often equals stiffness. I bought the rod because a buddy had an "ole yeller" rod that worked great. He lost it overboard. I'm getting him one of these as a replacement, because we both like 'em so much. July 24, 2013
Trout slaying machine! I bought this combo at Sevierville, Tennesee's Bass Pro Shops because it was cheap. I got home and put some 4 lb. mustad line on it and caught numerous trout. The sensitivity and bend is awesome and fun. June 24, 2012

A: 
I probably would not suggest using braid on this combo unless it is a very light pound test of braid since this is a Ultralight Combo

A: 
usually spinning reels and braid don't get along because of the natural line twist that comes with spinning rods. also the drag system with spinning reels don't favor braid because it tends to cut or sinch on itself. however if use 8 to 10 lb mono as backing and the eyes on your rod are made for braid or superline a small diameter braid can be used with spinning combos quite effectively.

I'm trying to get a cheap ultralight set up but good quality. Considering that the rod itself is $20 and this is $25 I wanted to know how it holds up.

A: 
Its a great reel, I replaced mine but only cuz I have the replacement model on 3 other rods and am use to it. I still keep the reel in my tackle box as a spare. And I did use it for 1.5 months before finally switching, normally I don't wait at all. Very smooth and easy casting, you won't be disappointed.

A: 
If you fish it right, yes it would work on Bass probably up to 6 lbs or so.

Side note, I just moved to VA two weeks ago and am looking forward to finding some fishing holes to do some bank fishing, no boat.

Also a disabled Vet.

A: 
I'd be leary of using this for anything very large. Getting a decent hookset with the flexibility of the rod is difficult. Playing a bass with it would be kind of fun and challenging, but also a bit frustrating. I doubt if you could turn his head if it came to that.

The bass would have to be a little on the smaller size around 1-2lb.

A: 
Yes but stick to smaller more finesse lures. I have caught a couple fish in the 16" inch range so far and it held up well, the pole has a lot of bend in it. Like the other person said; use a net and don't try man handling a big fish enjoy the fight.
