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.

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.

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.
