Rated 1 out of 5 by angryfisherman from rod is fine, reel is terrible The rod is fine. The reel is a piece of junk. - The casting button can pop out of its hinges when pressed. Requires disassembly to fix. - The star-wheel drag comes loose constantly and must be retightened before reeling in. - If the drag wheel is overtightened, the reel becomes unusably jerky, if it's able to be reeled at all. - The line tends to slip over the pin when reeling in, leading to tangles inside the housing. Requires disassembly and respooling to fix. I am done with this reel, but I am having trouble finding a sufficiently light and small replacement for it. Customer service did not respond to my request for support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gillfish from Very good combo set Not sure why the other person put 1 star, and seemed really really frustrated, but these combos are incredible. I bought two in pink for 4 and 6 y/o daughters. Color is very deep and reminds me of Bubba Watson's driver shaft. Very, very nice gear. If by chance you find the reel is not reeling in the string, there is a black star dial thing at the crank shaft that needs to be turned by hand until tight. Then, the reel will work. The reel works very well and is very smooth when simply pulling out some slack to test. The rod is a true ugly stik and has plenty of action for what the kids setup will be (bobber/worm/split weight) and pan fish....Again, I really can't get over how awesome the pink color is, and as a dad, I am proud to have purchased these - they look like serious business, even if they are pink. Could not say the same if I had no choice but to buy Barbie combos (yuk). Thanks for making these Shakespeare!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GLM66 from I bought this combo for my son, he loves it. The only problem is the reel. I plan on purchasing a new reel. The rod is the perfect size and lives up to the Uglystick name. If you purchase this combo you will need to replace the reel if used a lot. If they sold this rod separately that would be great or improve on the quality of the reel. Overall, good purchase because of rod, reel is lacking. I recommend for beginners, but make sure the reel is set up properly before using or you will have a disappointed child.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Teddy372 from Poor drag placement. We bought one yellow and one red spincast for the kids, constantly having to remind them to keep the star drag tightened, they can't seem to help but loosen it every time they use it. Also can't get these to cast out more than 8-10 feet. I've pulled out most of the line and rewind it under tension and it still hangs up on the cast. I like using ugly stick rods but the reels on these are not working for us. will teach the kids to use the open face reels and never buy another spincast again. My rating is for the combo, and mainly the reel is the issue, the rods are nice size for the kids.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mecontent from Great price for first fishing rod Bought this fishing rod to go fishing with my son. First time was horrible since there was no explanation on how to get the string to reel back. I found previous review, which explained it very simply, and voila, it works. This explanation should be attached to the rod for us "first timers" who doesn't know how a fishing rod works. This would save a lot of frustration (which i expect 1st reviewer had including myself). Will go fishing tomorrow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by D_mont04 from Great pole horrible real I have 2 of these for my kids. Perfect size for a 4 yr old that has learned how to cast and much more fun than your kid size all in one poles. The reel on both of them have shot craps. The second one didn't last one evening at the pond. I would have returned it but the pole is perfect. Ugly stik is my rod if choice and wish they would sell the rod separate of the reel. Best size kid rod on the market! Buy the rod...toss the reel.
