Great Starter Combo
I got this combo for Christmas about a year and a half ago for my first saltwater combo and it has served me well. I use it for casting for stripers across a river from a pier and it can cast a country mile. Very smooth and the rod is very sensitive. Also, it is a two-piece rod which makes for easy storage and travel. The only downside is that if you don't watch your line before casting, it can get caught up in the reel handle and the bail wire. This is very easily corrected by just being more careful when casting. If you're looking for a great beginning saltwater combo that's easy on the wallet, pick up one of these, you won't regret it.

I tried this combo out and I find it to be an excellent purchase considering the price. The reel is nice and smooth (casts a country mile), the rod seems beefy enough and more sensitive than I thought. Though I did not catch any fish because the rigs I bought, did not have sharp hooks. I am considering another purchase of this combo.

good price, poor quality
I bought this combo cause i wanted a balanced rod and reel combo that wasnt too expensive. After going on basspro online and reading the reviews i decided to buy it . Truth be told, its sadly not worth the money. The rod itself looks very good. But its not durable at all. The tip broke of on its own. And the reel, eventhough lightweight for its size, is garbage. After moderate use with constant maintenance the reels bearings got damaged and became worthless. Instead of buying this i now recomend an ugly stick, not the combo cause the reel that shakespeare gives is garbage, with a penn reel
