Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balanced lightweight casting combo The catalog photo shows a spinning reel, but I bought the casting combo. Excellent workmanship and fit and finish overall. The small casting reel is made of carbon fibre and has an exceptionally smooth mechanism. The two-piece carbon fibre rod is strong yet flexible, easy to cast and balances perfectly with the reel. I switched from spinning to casting with this combo, wanting the pinpoint accuracy offered by casting. I can throw my lightest topwater lure, and pull it through the worst hazards. The reel adjustments are accurate and easy to set, avoiding birds' nests (as long as I remember to keep my thumb on the spool). The combo comes with a full spool of 12lb monofilament, which is in the middle of the suggested range. I bought it in a LL Bean store so I had a chance to see if it was for me before purchase. Overall highest recommendation. It's marketed as being for bass, but my photo shows a nice trout I caught and released back into Rock Creek in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breaks with little use Lovely light and comfortable rod, but the tip broke off the first time we used it. I had purchased two of these rods, one just a little longer than the other. The second rod's tip broke as well, and the reel feel apart and the parts fell in the water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Week stability for price With in one day of buying the rod it broke. I stringed the line through the spool and rod and pull on the line a little and the tip broke off immediately.
