Shakespeare® Catch More Fish Spinning Rod and Reel Combo for Surf/Pier
Not the Best
I bought two of these on my trip to the Keys because they were cheap, and they weren't worth as much as I paid for them. One of the combos worked fine but one of them broke the day I bought it. I would spend the money and buy a good quality combo.

Not Worth It
I bought it because it had a low price but it wasn't worth the price I paid. It is very low quality and the rod broke into three pieces the seconde time I used it.

Worst Rod/Reel combo ever
This is quite possibly the worst rod/reel combo I have ever purchased in terms of quality. I picked up this kit at the Fort Myers Bass Pro to try surf fishing.
The Good: comes pre-spooled with 14lb test, and comes with a mini-tackle box with a selection of salt-water tackle and a few of pieces of artficial shrimp and crab
The Bad: Extremely poor quality rod and reel. The rod broke in two with my first cast at the beach using the included tackle and surf sinker. I managed to slide the two broken pieces back together to keep casting. The second day at the pier the reel siezed and I could barely turn the retrieve. I tried to open it up to oil it, but it fell to pieces and I lost the spool over the side of the pier. The slogan should read "Catch No Fish"
The really bad: I ran out of time to try to return it to Bass Pro on my way back to the airport.
