Rated 3 out of 5 by from If you want a cheap beginners rod, this is it. I bought my Shakespeare fly combo on sale for $56. I am new to fly fishing and did not want to spend a lot of money on a rod. It is cheap, but it gets you out on the water fishing. I did have to replace the combo set after only a few weeks of having it as the rod snapped on me mid-cast. Other than that, its a good beginner's rod for those not wanting to spend a bunch of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding performance for a bargain Bought the 8 weight setup after checking it out at Gander mountain for a non fly fisher friend prior to a salmon fishing trip to upstate NY. Had really good balance and feel ....and even the albeit plastic reel seemed substantial . Well right out the wrapper ...first cast ...showing my buddy with his rig ...hooked and landed a huge steelhead. During the trip several salmon ...steelhead and enormous brown trout am blown away at this thing. Was very pleasantly surprised at how well the reels drag handled the smoking fast runs and the rods taper & forgiving nature kept the hooks from pulling as that monster jumped. I'm embarrassed to say how well this rig casts as compared to my own highly over priced outfit. Rolls a tight loop at 75+ feet and effortlessly. An excellent starter combo .......and to be frank ....if my friend who left it with me doesn't come get .....will be using it in the saltwater next year vs my expensive rigs. Perhaps a musky rod in the old tippy canoe too. Great product .....thanks!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not to happy Had the 8 weight for about 3 uses and mid-cast it snaps on me. Hopefully they replace it as I also have the 5 weight. Disappointed to say the least.
