Browning Fishing Stalker Gold Rod and Reel Spinning Combo
I bought this combo about 2 months ago and I fish at least 3 times a week for 3+ each trip. This has been my "go to" setup since I got it. I have been very pleased with it and is a a great combo to have. I would recommend anyone to it! I was using it tongiht and I hooked a huge one, but the tip broke off down the to second guide.Yes this was disappointing as the was "the one that got away" story, but I kinda rushed trying to get it reeled in to prevent the school from moving off since I was on a dock. The Reel on this is nice and smooth. Along wtih some nice line on it, it will cast great distances with ease. The rod is nice, good back-bone, great sensitivity, and easy to hold for hours of fishing. I wish mine had a little better action to it as it seems a little stiff, but for the price you can't complain. This is one I would buy again, and for others as a gift for sure.

I usually use ugly sticks but these rods are way better. The spinning combo feels amazing and reels so smooth. While it may be 2x the price of a cheaper spinning outfit, it is worth the price. The feel of the rod and reel gives me so much confidence. It also looks good, which may sound silly but actually matters. You will want to use and fish this rod because of the way it feels, even if you aren't having any luck. If you are a poor college student like me and are looking for another rod combo, you cannot go wrong with browning. These have held up against quality bass time and time again.

This rod and reel are perfect for Crappie and Bass. It has replaced my others. It is evenly weighted and you can feel the smallest of hits with this. I have the light action spooled with Mr. Crappie 6#. I highly recommend it.

The girls on a high school tennis team I coach bought me a couple gift certificates for bass pro shops! I have been wanting a good setup to fish my local river for smallmouth bass and after much research selected this rod and reel combo. I've used the pole all week and I can say this is now my favorite rod for smallies. the reel is smooth and the drag works fine but what I like the best is the rod. It can handle just about every lure I want to throw for smallies and when fishing crawdads or lizards the feel is incredible. Not only do I get to coach a great group of girls but they even bought me a amazing fishing pole!! I have to be the luckiest coach in the world!! :)
