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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MPBE 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.

A good combo for the price. Caught Summer Flounder, Black sea bass and baby Blacktip reef shark.

Used this combo only once while kayaking. Worked great. When I was done I thoroughly washed it. Next time I go out the line catcher "thingy" won't close after casting. Rod is decent though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by deepseaseaker poor material
Damaged the grip just taking the wrapping off the grip material is some kind of foam

This is just the rod and reel, no line, hooks or weights. If you're looking for a get up and go combo, I would suggest the Shakespeare Catch more fish surf/pier kit, it has line, hooks, lures, and weights that come with it.
