Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Rod, poor reel The rod is great but the real is very cheap like the other reviews have said. I'd buy the rod itself and find another reel if I did it again. The combo is hardly worth the extra 10 bucks. May 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Catfishing Rod Great combo for big fish! I've used others and broke all trying to land catfish, but the ugly stick. It just doesn't break. Great price and fast shipping too. Save yourself money replacing other rods over and over and go with this combo right away March 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great rod, not as good reel The rod is great with quality and strength. Had no problems with the rod and exceeded my expectations of it. The rod was very good in performance and i would definitely recommend this buy. The reel however wasn't as good. It was poor in performance and more cheaply made than i had hoped for. I had problems with it casting sometimes but besides those couple times, the reel performed well and i cant complain too much about it. Great pole overall, flawless besides the reel problems and i would highly recommend this buy. November 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Would pay $20 extra if had to Very good rod and reel combo. reels in smooth, casts far and is durable. one thing i like it the rod is glow in the dark. only tip is to make sure you don't put too much line on or it will pop off the reel and get tangled. August 10, 2013

Have looked everywhere and can't find a real answer. I can see on the rod in the picture if you zoom in, you can see the caps for 12 and 14... but nothing else.

A: 
Okay, the truth is that if you are worried that you might get spooled if you can only fit 100 yards of 14 lb. test on your reel, then you are fishing with the wrong setup. A rod like that probably casts about 40, maybe 50 yards depending on your bait size and other factors. When bass fishing, or cat fishing for that matter, this is more than adequate. If a fish then takes another 50 yards off when hooked, dude, that ain't no bass. If it's a catfish, it's a legend.

I have caught many carp on my setup, this rig works great for both catfish and carp. I've had some real fighters on the line and the pole is strong enough to pull in the big hawgs.

A: 
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.

A: 
it holds 250 yards of 15 lb. line and 220 yards of 17 lb. line. if you are catching bigger fish like catfish i would use 17 lb. but if its smaller fish use 15 lb. line. although i would just get 17 lb. line just in case.

firstly check and see how much 12lb mono would fit, and yes it would handle it, I've used 20lb braid on small spinning reels, around 8lb and as long as you dont wind up the drag it'll do well
