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

Rated 4 out of 5 by Whitesox2025 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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SwampDonkey13 Great Rod, not sold on the reel yet.
I really like the design and feel of the rod. It has a spot to attach my hook which I enjoy and has a good feel while casting. Rod also seems to be very tough. The reel however has a very cheap feel to it. The handle is attached it a way that if you pull backward on to hard will unscrew the handle. While reeling it it also has a slow and unsmooth feel to it. I may be being a little picky for the money, but overall am satisfied.
