Rated 5 out of 5 by CVinton Good for its intended purpose
I bought the kit during a sale to shove under my truck seat so that I could hit the fishing holes when ever I found myself with spare time.
The case is a good fit, and the small tackle boxes are quality and have the capacity for the bare-bones flies and lures to pursue your intended game fish. (Bass, Bluegill, occasional trout). I'n not a huge fan of the clear lid, but it helps to show off the merchandise.
I've yet to play with the spin rod to any extent. The cork handle is of high quality, the finish is nice, and the reel is of acceptable quality. Its not one of your heavy hitter rods for long days on the lake, but I feel comfortable with it. The mono that comes with it has to go though.
The fly rod has landed about 2 dozen bluegill and bass so far and is the main reason I bought the kit. I'm a huge fan of the cork handles. It comes with 5 weight floating line and is very versatile. I'll be hitting the creeks again this weekend most likely with it.
Overall, an excellent buy for sale price. If you're a die hard spin fisher of fly fisher, save your money and spend it on a higher quality reel and rod. Otherwise, pick this up and let the conditions dictate your methods.

I have looked for fishing gear that I could pick up and be ready for action. This outfit will serve me well. I travel a lot and in the evenings to relax near the water.

A certain 14 year grandson was thrilled with this gift and started practicing immediately! A certain grandmother won accolades.
2 very minor suggestions:
Fabric top instead of clear vinyl
A rubber fob for practicing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DVSM Spin/Fly combo
I should have started buying my gear from LL Bean a long time as their service is excellent and worry free. Been fishing all my life and the Spin/fly combo is the ideal product for the travelling fisherman. both the fly and spin rod and reels are of excellent quality and offer excellent action. Have used both this spring. I noticed a few comments regarding line, but this is normal with both new mono and fly line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brennan12 Pleased but Spinner Reel needs work
The carrying case is excellent, easy to use and provides both rods in an easy to store location you can keep in your car or pack in you bag.
The fly rod is good, but make sure and strip all the line out to undo any tangles that may have been accidentally included during the manufacturer spooling it.
The spinner is also good. I immediately stripped off all the supplied mono and replaced it with light braided line. The rod itself is very nice, four pieces that give it a good length and very sensitive. Had problems with the spool - anti-drag and drag work fine, but it tends to spin separately and I am sending it back for replacement.
All in all, given the warranty, its a solid purchase and a solid pack to keep handy

by Bdub16 Awesome
This product out of the box was awesome. The high quality fishing rods and reels was pronominal. The tackle boxes was good quality and will get the job done. The case is well padded to keep the rods from breaking. I added a package of size 12 snells. 3 different colors of powerbait maggots, a jar of powerbait sparkles, different hooks and weights, 3 bobbers and my panfish flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OrangeandBlue47 Perfect fit for spur of the moment trips!
Exactly as advertised (you can't imagine how rare this is for online shopping). Perfect size to leave under the car seat. Both rods have actions as advertised, and are perfect for pan fish, trout and small bass. Mr. Bean, you hit it out of the park with this setup.
