This is a great rod outfit for someone wanting to try the sport out and see if they are going to like it before investing in a better rod. This is not a rod that is going to last you more than a couple years unless you fish very few times a year. It's a great rod for someone that doesn't want to break the bank before deciding if they want to commit to a nicer rod set up. It's very budget friendly since it comes with the rod, reel and line all spooled up and included in the package. It has a limited 5 year warranty which is a nice bonus for an intro rod set up as most don't offer that.

Pros
  • Very budget friendly.
  • Great low price starter rod.
  • Includes everything needed to get right on the water.
Cons
  • Very limited warranty.
  • Is not able to cast bigger flies and poppers.
  • Not very durable.
