Rated 4 out of 5 by TXAvidFisherman Good rod and reel
I bought this rod and reel for my wife who is getting into fly fishing. I have to say I was pretty impressed i've bought inexpensive fly rods in the past and this rig far exceeded my expectations. Ive only had it for awhile so i'm not sure how it will last but it casts well and the reel is decent. Overall it was a perfect buy for my wife who loves it. I would recommend this setup for the price.

Don't underestimate the power of pink. My girlfriend is excited about fly fishing and catching fish. This will bring our relationship to new heights, and get me more time on the river... Best money I have spent in a long time.

Sand and gravel gets into the reel way too easily.

It really just depends on the rod. If the rod is not stiff enough overlining can cause it to flex to much at the tip when casting and can really mess up your casting stroke on the other hand if it is stiff enough it can speed up the action of the Rod. I have 2 or 3 5 wt rods that I overline up to a 6wt and they cast great. but the only way to really know is to try it out.
