Good value for the money
For the price, this is a good setup. I spooled it with 6-lb mono and made a rod tube to put it in for backpacking, and so far it is working out well for me. This is not a stiff rod, it is more like a light action than a ML.
Workhorse for a relative n00b
by Martin in the Mountains
This has been my workhorse fishing rod & reel for 3 seasons now since getting into fishing. I have mine spooled with Super FC Sniper #4, and use almost exclusively Panther Martin and Mepps lures, usually in a 1/16 to 1/8th oz range for trout up. I flatten all my barbs to make it a bit more challenging, and some days we go bust, other days I catch more than the old timers who have been doing this for a looooong time. The setup is decent... It's not top-end stuff, but its a compact rod and reel with extras for $40. If you're getting into trout fishing, I highly recommend this. Just be sure to press the sections together real good. I've heard enough stories of people casting and *fwiinngg* goes their rod.... This is a nicely packable little setup. The tackle box it comes with is perfect size for the ~$100+ of lures that I have. I keep my license, nippers, foreceps, and the lures in the bag, ready to go at any time. I might get a second one as a backup in case I break it...
