We feel anglers should have a reliable performing ''grab-and-go'' salt combo that’s versatile enough for surf casting or pier fishing with price that would make frugal fisherman proud. We feel that we've done just that with the Mako Spinning Rod and Reel Combo.

The medium-action, two-piece Mako rod is complete with quality guides, EVA grip handle and graphite reel seat with saltwater-tough, stainless steel cushioned hoods.

The smooth Mako reel is built around lightweight graphite frame and side cover and is complete with an anodized aluminum spool, front drag system, die-cast handle and stainless steel main shaft.

    Rod Features:
  • Medium-action two-piece blank
  • EVA handle grip
  • Graphite reel seat with stainless steel cushioned hoods

    Reel Features:

  • Graphite frame and side cover
  • Anodized aluminum spool
  • 4 ball bearing system
  • Die-cast handle
  • Front drag
  • Stainless steel main shaft

Bummer. After a weekend of pier and surf fishing, I don't trust this set-up at all. I thought $50 for a reliable salt combo might be too good to be true, and it seems that it is. Bummer. I'm no stranger to finicky spinning reels, but this thing is just garbage. It has a tendency to throw line off of the top of the spool as you reel in... or cast... or hold still. This happened with the mono that it came set-up with, so I tried loading some good 14lb fluoro to see if it made a difference. Same problem. No, I did not overload the reel with too much line. The rod for the money is decent I guess, but feels lifeless, sleepy. It's a little stiff for med action, but not in a sturdy kind of way. More like rigid, frail. Not surprised to see some reviews that report the rod breaking. October 13, 2014
Bad Reel I purchased this combo to take on vacation. Before leaving, I ran off a bit of line and rigged it for the surf. I noticed that the reel handle felt a bit loose, so I tightened the plug that held the handle tight. When I arrived, I casted the first time and reeled in the line and the handle fell off. The plug completely unwound allowing the handle to fall off. I retrieved the handle, but lost the plug in the surf. I then went to a local bait shop and purchased a new plug. I put the plug back on and tightened it down. The first time I casted with the new, I reeled in and lost the new plug and the handle. I returned to the bait shop and bought a new reel. We only had one good fishing day during vacation and I spent it dealing with a bad product. Very disappointing. September 8, 2014
Not my Favorite I bought this combo based on some good reviews I read. I must be the unlucky one. For the reel - Right out of the box for a Surf Fishing trip - 3rd cast I go to reel in the reel starts to feel like it's slipping. Reel spins but the bail wont move up and down to re-spool line evenly. Unsure what the deal is I pull it a part, light weight gear driving the bail has half the teeth sheared off. I'm not a rough guy. Only had 4 ozs. of weight and some shrimp on the line for bait. Went to another store to replace. Found a Quantum reel for close to the same price, finished the trip no issues. I'm going to try and replace the gear and just use for a junk reel. Plus on the Rod one of the ceramic guides came off. I guess you get what you pay for. July 25, 2013
Great Purchase The Mako spinning rod was everthing I hoped for but if you are considering purchasing be sure to remove some of the line from the reel before you rig your line reel comes over full and can cause some problems casting. Once excess line was removed probably 100yds. the reel worked fine. April 2, 2013

Hi, for Squid Fishing: almost any style of rod and reel will work. Think "light and long" because it's best to have something that is sensitive and telegraphs slight changes. Successful squidders use anything from six to 20-pound line but the best chances of success come with the lighter line. For shark and tuna combo you might choose another option. However, this would be good for squid fishing. Thanks
