Shakespeare Synergy Ti6 Spincast Rod and Reel Combo
Very nice little combo
I bought this for my 4 year old daughter, I was shocked when I casted it, it swings bait nicely ! , retrieves great too.My wife fished with it and decided it was hers. Now my poor daughter is back with her old rod and my wife and I fight over this one. It really does cast nice, no line twist problems, rod is nice too. For the money it is a great all around ultralite. I have sense bought another Synergy reel, a bit larger for a medium rod, it is great as well.

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.
