Not a great purchase
I purchased this rod and reel for my son. We are getting ready to go fishing to try out the new rod and my son leans the rod up against the car while packing the supplies in the trunk. The rod slips and lands on our driveway and breaks in half. ( the rod was sill in its protective wrapping ) Needless to say it was very upsetting to have the rod break after falling shuch a short distance. I have done this myself many times and never have I had a rod break. I would not recommend purchasing this item.

Right Stick For The Right Job
All of my fishing gear is focused on being ultralite to get the maximum fight out of any fish, no matter how big or small. However, my 10 & 12 foot crappie poles lack the power to use soft plastic worms. They lack the backbone to rare back and set the hook.
So, I got this Tiny Lite Combo, which is now the shortest rod I have, but I've put a 15 pound Trilene line on it, and I have no problem setting the hook on the bigger bass.
When the bigger bass ( 3-5lb) take the worm, the rod bends double, but the drag works and the pole won't break, and I get what I came fishing for... a great time.
I like this combo and may get another for the soft plastic salamanders I use.

Won't Last Long
I have this rod / reel combo. I fished with it about three times and put it up for the winter. When I got it out this year one of the ball bearings had come loose. Now the reel is shot. Don't expect even 20 dollars worth of fishing out of this reel!!!

this is oneof the best combos ever! I bought one of them when i started fishing on a golfcourse so I could feel the bluegills fight and this is 3 years later and I have four that still work great most of what I catch is panfish but ive caught a couple two pound bass on them and even some decent catfish! you need to buy one!

I have a pole just like this that one. I have gotten 10lb bass in on the pole. The pole is perfect for bass and bluegill. The tip of the pole bends alot. If you have a bluegill on it, it mades it look like a big bass. But the only problem is when you hook a 25lb carp with it like i did. It made my reel start clicking.
