Bought one of these in 1978. Finally wore it out landing a 25" brown trout out of the Green River in Utah. Got a new one but they doubled in price. It will now be $1.33 per year if I have it and live that long. Best light tackle ever!!!

I didn't expect much from an inexpensive portable fishing kit, yet this product has so far held up pretty good under a bit more use than expected. It is now my primary fishing set-up and gets used four to five times a week for the past three months. So far nothing has broke. As long as the pole is put together tightly and when (if) you get anything over 2lbs on the hook you let the reel take the weight it does just fine. I'm using it at a bass lake with a trout pond at the bottom of a run-off chute so it has performed well, either casting size 3 rapalas for the bass or just with a trout rig. The lake I currently fish at is through heavy brush in Southern California, so the compact kit is necessary and works great. As long as you know what minimal tackle you need it holds it all. I even have room for my reading glasses and a small penlight. The 4lb test line seems perfect for this set-up. I will be trading up to a better line like Stren or Trilene when I wear this current spool out which will be soon. One important note: Do Not Purchase this rig for newbies unless it's just for show or as a back-up. It is quite sensitive and can break quite easily in the hands of a ten year old. If the user of this kit is not familiar with how to take proper precautions when setting up a rig, or has problems setting up a rig, then this is not for them. For $50 this has been one of my better buys of fishing equipment. I hope this review helps, and good fishing!

Great ultralight combo after some tweaks

Customer review by backpackerfisherman

The rod performs wonderfully as a fast-action ultralight. It is extremely responsive given its price and size, and the pistol grip is remarkably comfortable. The reel seat is the only major annoyance, since the security mechanism is a small wedge and bolt that can't be adjusted along the spine of the rod-- it only tightens down and sometimes misses the clearance of the seat on ultralight reels (including, ironically, the Daiwa MC40 included with the kit; I actually cast the reel into the water once.) The rod collapses to about 14inx2in. On the whole, probably my favorite ultralight collapsing rod for casting. The reel also performs great, although like all reels out of the box it benefits from a cleaning and re-lubing. I'm not a fan of the top-mounted drag system above the spool cover, but it works. One side-effect of the top drag system is that the line aperture on the spool cover is extremely large; this allows for some very smooth casting, but ironically it doesn't pair well with the fast-action rod included in the kit. I find the reel performs much better on a competitor's slow-action rod of the same size. On the whole, the kit is a great deal. Even though the rod pairs better with spincasts that have a smaller line aperture, and the reel pairs better with a slow-action rod, you can't beat the combination of price and quality in a collapsible ultralight spincast kit.
