Rated 5 out of 5 by PondFishermanIllinois Perfect for stashing in the car
I got one of these for Christmas, and just came in to see if they had another one. This is perfect for throwing in a backpack, or just in the trunk of your car for those little "opportunities" that can present themselves when you might not have brought your regular outfit along. The reel is rated for between 2 and 6lb test, and seems happiest with 4lb. There is more play in the reverse than I normally like, so you might want to upgrade the reel to something a bit more solid, but then again this isn't a muskie rod. I mostly use it for pond exploration if I happen by some new water, and this can tear up panfish all day long, where a ripping hookset isn't all that important. Due to the small size, this combo is also real nice for kids, and is of far better quality than most of the other kid combos out there. There are also some small spaces in the case for some tackle, so just throw in a few hooks, floats, and split shots and you're ready to go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by badchiefy Okay product
This is a pretty good pole if your looking for a small easy to use combo to carry around and fish with whenever possible but, the pole is a piece of junk. The reel is descent quality but the rod just flat out blows. Depending on how you cast the very top piece of the rod flies out into the water. Every other piece has a stopper at the beginning of it but the top piece does not. I would look for a combo like the Browning Micro Stalker or something similar that doesn't break down.
