I actually own two of these combos in 7 foot... I loved them so much that after destroying the reels during some nasty surf fishing (my fault, not the reel) I bought replacement reels with confidence. The rods themselves are super sensitive and respond well to a variety of lines. Just enough stiffness to feel what is going on with the lure, but enough slack to let the fish show interest and avoid pulling the hook away. The reels are solidly made, extremely smooth and feel comfortable even after fishing all day. I have fished a fair amount of freshwater and even some light saltwater around the Texas Gulf Coast with these combos and I highly recommend them. I have yet to encounter a fishing scenario where my two agility combos didn't perform well. Overall I think these combos have been the best investment in fishing gear I have made to date.
Pros: Sensitive, Good Tip Action, Accurate Casting, Durable
Cons: none
Best Uses: Ocean Fishing, River Fishing
Fantastic Light Combo!

I use this on Lake Erie, bottom fishing for Yellow Perch. I bought one to try it out two seasons ago, and last year bought my second one. It's just an awesome combo for the money. The reel is super smooth and the rod has the right balance of fast action tip and backbone right where you want it for a nice hookset. Very sensitive and forgiving rod.. I have two of the 6 foot Light.
Pros: Sensitive, Chicks Dig It, Super Smooth Reel, Good Tip Action
Cons: none
