Shakespeare Catch More Fish Rod and Reel Combo for Bass
Went fishing at Alligator Alley this past Saturday and was a little skeptical about using this pole since I'm your old fashion bamboo fishing pole kind of yougin'. But my fiance bought this pole for me and I fell in love! Can't wait to use MY fishing pole again lol. It' s just right for me. Now I'll have to get him one because my pole caught all the Oscars and Bass lol.

One Of The Best Poles Ever!!!
I just purchased this pole and it comes with almost everything a bass fisherman needs to get started. I bought this combo because I was pulling in a big fish and when i got it off the hook the real was broken. This combo is good for anyone even if you are an expert. this pole can land some huge bass, and I love this new pole! =)

Good all around
This is not the best rod I have ever used, but it works pretty well, and I've caught my fair share of fish with it, and it holds up well. Reading some other reviews, a lot of people have criticized the line, which does have a cheap and plastic-ish feel to it, but still works without any problems. It holds up well with everything from bass to pike and I've even caught a monster 9lb bowfin on it. over all, it's a very good deal for the money, but it is a lie to say that this kit comes with everything you need. Some other stuff you will want if you intend to start fishing with this kit and don't have any other gear:
-Sliding sinkers (to use with soft plastics)
-A few spinners (I recommend roostertails)
-A good big spinnerbait
That said, the rod and real work very well, and I'd recommend this to anyone on a low budget.

I hadn't fished since I was kid, and was looking to get back into it. This combo plus the extra kit has proven to be a perfect investment.
The rod has just the right amount of weight and feels great and comfortable in my hand. The reel hasn't given me any problems and the string has been strong enough to reel in pretty good sized bass as well as get through some tough snags without snapping the line.
Easy to assemble and setup, everything appears to be well-made and high quality, and the kit comes with plenty of useful items, not cheap, useless things you'll just throw out.
I bought this combo to just learn and get back into the swing of things, but now I realize I'll be happy with this purchase for much longer!
