Zebco 404 Spincasting Rod and Reel Combo with Tackle
Upset on quality
I purchased this item from the Springfield MO store on July the 1st 2006, used it about 5 times just light fishing for bluegill. I took this pole out last night fishing and it is a 2 piece pole, the top of the rod were it attaches to the bottom spapped off when we were setting a hook for a bluegill or small fish. It suprised me that it snapped were it did because it was about 6 inches up from were it attaches to the bottom piece it snapped. I did rerig it up so I can still fish with it just slid the top part back into the bottom and pushed it down as far as it would go, only bad thing is I now have to sacrafice the hieght of the rod to about a 5' 2" now instead of 5'8" but I can live with that. I would recommend this to a friend because I had good luck with the other components of this system and I have caught quite a bit of fish with this system. I am rather upset that I am not able to return this to the store for replacement because it is over 30 days but I guess my setup will have to work for now.

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.

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.
