Rated 1 out of 5 by joethefish cheap!
the line installed is junk so swap it off quick. otherwise its just a cheap poorly made combo. i bought it for some unknown reason. if you want a cheap combo get one of the basspro combos for 10 or 20 bucks more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NewStateRecord Good but not great
I bought the spinnning combo because i heard that Shakespeares were supposed to be durable. After one year of use I have to disagree. The guides bend easily and a part of the handle became missing. Also, whenever you reel in fast the line gets caught around the hook keeper. I would only recommend this product if you are a first time fisherman and are not sure if you are going to keep at it. If you are a 3-5 day a week fisherman then I do not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ob2caster Nice rod & reel.
I have other Ugly stick fishing rods. It's what I wanted. I purchased 3 sets for my grandchildren and have used them already. Nice. Using in salt water for snapper blue fish. Used bobber that came in package. Grandchildren were able to cast with a little instruction. All the fishing items, hooks, weights, lures, etc. I transfered to a plano box for each child. They enjoyed all the fishing items that came with the rod & reel. Ugly stick rods are very durable and the Shakespeare reel looks like it will give good use. The price was right, shipping perfect, arrived in good shape. Packaging color and arrangement was exciting for the children to see and open.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bigsmitty not any good at all
Let me start with the positives; (1)the line installed is decent enough for small fish (2) good if you catch anything under 2 lbs (3) good enough for the price, i mean what can you really expect from a $25 reel.
Now the bad; (1) hope u don't have a good f*ghter on the line! (2) the gears inside the reel click and grind even if you have a small decently good f*ghting fish / i thought it was going to break the gears inside when reeling in 2-3 pounders. Thats a bad feeling... (3) the feel is only ok, its not super sensitive

You need to have the reel facing down, flip the bail or use the quick release button while holding the line with your index finger. Pull back and cast the line. Remember to release the line too at the moment your ready to cast. That's pretty much it, it's a bit hard to describe in words. lol
