Zebco 404 Spincasting Rod and Reel Combo with Tackle
something for the future
wanted my grandsons combo to be something he could grow with. The action figure combos did not look like something he could use by the age of 6. He will use it increasingly often as time goes on. i have owned one and really liked it.

good beginner rod
the rod is an okay rod; perfect for panfish and small bass or bullheads(type of catfish). reel is an okay one as well it comes with 10lb line and has a bait alert system to and a star drag system! only down side is its mostly plastic. if you are a beginner or looking for a gift for a beginner i highly recomend you buy the ugly stik combo package. it's got a good reel and an amazingly strong rod.

Good Rod but Terrible Reel
I got this rod and reel combo in 2007 when I was new to fishing and I thought it would be a good combo for a starter. The rod is really strong and I can almost bend it into a U-shape without any cracking or breaking. But the reel was horrible. It would backlash so many times. And one day the reel just stopping reeling in line when I was fighting a 5 pound bass. I just threw away the reel and put a different one on it. Now it works way better.
