Nice rod cought a fish first use
I watched a how to on spooling the real onto the new rod and it worked like a charm. The rod is heavy but I guess that is what you get when you get a catfish rod. Very durable and like the feel of it. I was also able to teach my 6 and 8 year old how to cast with this rod.
I will get them a much smaller rod to start with this one is a little to heavy for them.

Value for the price
great rod for the price. Have fished quite a bit with it this month and have reeled in some big snags with it and everything performed great. The sensitivity is really well felt with a rod of this size and that is with 50lb. test on the spool. The only small problem ive found is the balance of it but for the price cant be to picky with it.

Best Rod for the money
This is the best rod for the money. The reel is not very good it lasted only about 6 weeks, but the rod is worth $60 alone. My rod has lasted 6 years and is still fighting strong. I have caught a 200lb tarpon on this and an 8ft lemon shark. I don't know why this is under freshwater, because it definitely has the power to be a saltwater. I am buying another one tomorrow. Love it

Bought this combo and just caught 28inch channel cat. Rod and reel worked great with 50lb braid. Great cast distance.

The rod doesnt glow in the dark, its marketed as having the top three eyelets glow in the dark. But they dont, so you may want to throw a bell on the end. Not a big deal by any means though, still a great combo.
