Great Combo, Great Price
By Bill Whitworth
I'm giving this combo 5 stars as the value is outstanding! I have paid twice as much for big name reels alone that I was nowhere near as happy with as this combo. The rod is medium action. I would almost rate it medium light. The sensitivity is terrific - reeling in panfish is still fun, but its been plenty tough enough for the larger catfish and drum I hook into while night fishing. The reel is butter smooth. Casting a spoon with 8 pound test line for white bass has been a breeze. We've had a great early start to the fishing season here and I have gotten a ton of use out of this combo (as well as the same model in 5' and 7') and I have had no issues so far. Highly recommended!

Nice rod great price.
I must admit I was very skeptical when I first ordered this rod but after doing a bit of research and finding out that Daiwa has wonderful customer service I took a chance. This rod is awesome for the price. It out cast almost anything under the 100 dollar range if you put decent line on it. It has great flexibility and strikes are easy to feel even when a little ten inch trout is on the line. I got this rod because I have started to fish for Bass this year and was afraid of hooking something to big for an Ultra Lite to handle. I gave my UL to my daughter because she has a knack for landing trout. This rod has caught trout and bass for me with no problem. Less than two months and I have caught 2 nice bass and nearly a dozen or so trout. Only 4 fishing trips and I am trying to think of a way to convince my wife to let me buy another. You won't be disappointed if your looking for a nice in between rod.

This rod & reel combo is pretty amazing for the price. Rod is sensitive enough. Reel action is solid, and allows easy casting. I have no idea how they can sell it at this price.
