Browning Fishing Stalker Gold Rod and Reel Baitcast Combo
I purchased this combo this summer and have caught over 40 bass on it with no problems . It is the medium action so I use it for a worm rod and just love it . I fish local tournaments and have made money with this combo . I cant believe how smooth this reel is no backlash or problems with it. For the price oh this combo I am not going to buy a medium/heavy rod for jigging .

Too early to tell...
I bought this rod/reel combo last week and I have to say that it isn't a bad combo. I took it fishing and didn't catch a fish on it. Still a little too early to tell how good it will be. The only thing is the rod says its a M/H and it feels like a medium. A little whippy. The reel casts very smooth though! Like the cork handle. Also the button to release the spool is a little lower than my liking but I can get used to that!

get what you pay for
saw this on sale for $59 so I picked one up for my 13 yr old son that wanted to try baitcasting. I took it out to try it first and not sure I will give it to him. Side spool tension and magnets are REAL sensitive to adjust. Even noticed spool tension tighten on its own a bit. When its correctly set it casts smooth and reels nice. Overall for $59 it is a nice set up. Just don't think my son will be able to throw it while just beginning with the issues on getting it set up right. Cast it easy and you'll be fine though, don't horse it and try for a 50 yard cast

Great combo for money
This is a great combo for the money. It actually outfishes my quantum/all star combos. I noticed the problems with the reels that were noted and made a discovery w my purchase: the reels arent lubed worth a darn. So I lubed it up with some quantum hot sauce grease and oil and i have yet to have a problem with this reel. It is just as smooth if not smoother than my high priced quantum reels which i coulnt believe. just lube it up before you ever carry it fishing with some quality grease and you will very very happy with this combination.
