Shakespeare Synergy Ti6 Spincast Rod and Reel Combo
I bought this for a young man that just started with Boy Scouts and had never been fishing before. I wanted Shakespeare because they are always high quality, but WOW! The pole was a little thinner than I expected, but it will work for him, and the reel... The reel is smooth as silk. I was playing with it a bit and teaching him how to cast and whatnot in the back yard before his trip, and I almost kept the reel for myself.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I got a call the first day he was out saying that for some reason it won't reel the line back in. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet though.
Overall this rod/reel combo is WELL worth the money.

Great Little Unit
I purchased this for my grandson (5) and he was able to cast and retrieve easily. It fit him well and looked to be of qualilty. Caught a trout on the first cast so he was sold from the start. I would recommend to other buyers. Great price and great value.

I bought this combo for my 4 year old and he loves it. It is small enough for him to cast it by himself. This is a great "first rod/reel".
