I flew back east to visit my daughter, and I wanted to fish. I had taken a 7ft break-down rod of mine that I really wasn't happy with. When I purchased my fishing license at the Wal-Mart in Madisonville Tn, these colorful little rods caught my eye. My favorite daily rod is a 5ft Ugly Stik that I have had for 5yrs. This rod, being similar in size & had a smooth reel seemed like a good inexpensive & temporary solution. I fish with lures (casting & retrieving) and I have cast this rod over 1500 times with no problems. I even left the factory line on it with no tangles.
I caught my first striped bass with it!
It fit nicely in my suitcase on my trip home, and I fish several times a week & it is quickly becoming my second rod. I do believe I will change out reels by the end of summer, since the drag on this reel is on or off...no real in-between. other than that, I am mightily impressed...
Wal-Mart...let folks choose color, or at least let them know that there are 3 colors (green, orange & Pink, all with blue accents, and that you will get a random color) I recommend this combo, and I will be purchasing these for my grandkids who already are proficient with open-face reels.
