This rod and reel combo was great. I bought this combo for my 5 year old son because he wants an "Ugly Stick". It performed flawlessly like it's big brother and caught several trouts with it. The line it came with was great, never lost a single fish (like I thought I would).
Only flaw is on the design, all the guides are on the upper half of the rod making it hard to align them with the reel.
All in all, it is a great little combo.
I attached a photo of our catch.
I was really suprised at the quality of the rod and real for the price. It was well worth the price and I ordered it on Sunday and received it on Monday. You can't beat that for timeleness when I didn't pay extra to get quicker shipping.
I purchased this for my 13 yr old grand daughter for pond fishing. She is very happy with this rod. I am thinking of getting one for myself.
I bought this because I had been using my kids little Taz pole from 1995. It is just the right size if you fish for fun and don't expect to catch a whale. I lake fish and love this mid-size pole.
The rod was great - As expected for an Ugly Stik.
The reel was another story altogether. I have been fishing for close to 40 years and have used many rod/reel combos.This combo did not feel well balanced and casting distance was awful. 10 -15 yards at best. I purchased this set for my 10 year old son and he did not like it at all. Used it once and returned it for credit. I purchased a ladies fishing kit for my 8 year old daughter at the same time (read the review) and was very impressed with the results.
Shakespeare needs to rethink this combo.
I own five Ugly Stiks - my favorite rod.
Purchased this combo 4 my grandkids so they could have an Ugly Stik like granpa - reel is way too heavy, out of balance, even 4 most adults. If it were not 4 the Ugly Stik, I would have rated the "combo" as low as you can go.
Thought this rod and reel would be great for my son. Nope, we used it for a couple hours and the anti-reverse started slipping so bad that it was unusable. I returned it.
This is one of best fishing kit I have gotten. The first time I went fishing it with the Ugly Stik I got two fish.
We opened the package and whent fishing. The only small problem with this set is it comes with a tackle kit but the tackle kit does not close once it's open. My friends had much more expensive gear than i did and i caught more fish using the cheap spinner this came with than they did using their fancy lures
Great value for a beginner.
Love this rod and reel excellent value.
This is the best rod I have ever used! The reel has a little fin for grabbing the line while casting that is extremely convenient, and the rod is sensitive but durable.
This was a great package for getting back into fishing after 25 years.
These combos are perfect for kids. They meet the durability demands of my 5yr and 7yr old wrecking crew.
this was such a great deal, I couldn't pass it up.
I bought this 5+ years ago have submerged it multiple times ,dropped it, kicked it,fell on it beaten it and never maintained it .I've caught more fish than I can think of ...a lot of them were probably more than the rods limit,but it's never broken .
I am generally an individual who buys high end products. I love to fish and I invest countless hours of time and lots of money in fishing. I generally buy abu Garcia and Penn. For some reason though, this ugly stik has outlasted all of my rods and reels! I love it! You will too!
bought online. very fast shipping. very nice outfit for the price. just starting to come in to spring in Erie,pa so i haven't used it yet.
This is the best rod I ever had.. It's great for catfishing as well as bass... plan to get another one in the future.
I would have given the product 5 stars had it arrived promptly, and in better condition. While functionally sound, several of the eyes had the paint worn from their edges in some spots. I doubt it was during it's 7 day journey to my house. I think it was however it was stored at the factory or warehouse it came from. You pay for what you get I suppose.
