Spend a little more, its worth it in the long run......
Pros: Cheap
Cons: Rod Unwieldy, Reel Difficult to use
Best Uses: Beginner Rod
Comments: I have a set of these rods. They are thick fiberglass, and difficult for people to handle and learn on. I have found that they break too easy for anything but light use. The reel has too much space between the spool and the frame, and line will often get caught in between. The reel also has a drag that is difficult to use. I have had several Medalist reels, and these on the the combo are of very cheap quality. I would say that my students find these very frustrating to use and it causes them to lose interest quickly.

Bad quality
Cons: Poor Construction
Best Uses: Small Fish
Comments: This is junk! The rod had an unfinished portion uncolored in the middle section. It looks awful when set. I would feel embarrased to go fishing like that. I will have to find a way to paint it myself. The tapered leader was not included in the combo, as advertised. The knot between the backing and th eline was like a grandmother's knot, it would not have lasted one strike. I feel cheated!

 Great bang for your Buck!
Pros: Durable, Accurate Casting
Cons: Too Stiff
Best Uses: Fly Fishing
Comments: I needed poles for my kids as they are learning the sport. EXCELLENT setup considering cost. The pole is a bit stiff and heavy, and the reel a little to loose for my liking. However considering I was able to get complete setup for 2 kids and 1 wife for under $175.00 FANTASTIC deal. There is much better equipment on the market, but NOT at this price.
