Rated 5 out of 5 by NorseViking Well made and compact
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

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.

I've been a customer of LL Bean since I was a kid (over 50 years) and I've always been impressed with the products that I've bought and have had the opportunity to enjoy throughout my life.
Over the years, with a passion for both hunting and fishing, I've accumulated many wonderful products from top vendors. However, I've always come back to LLBean because of not only the great quality provided, but also by the fact that they truly stand by their products... and if something isn't to specification (in their eyes), return or replacement isn't an issue.
I received one of these units as a birthday present and used both the spinning and fly setups on a trip to Labrador. Now I had 2 of my favorite units with me also, (1 Double L / 7 weight outfit & 1 Pocket Water 5 weight), however, I ended up using this Combo set for most of trip. The Fly Rod & Spinning unit were a pleasure to work with, and handled beautifully while casting and hooking up with Arctic Char 4 to 9 lb range & monster sea-run Brookies 3 to 6 lb range. Though I did re-spool the spinning outfit with 6lb Stren just as a matter of caution, the fly rod setup was fine the way it came.
Now this set DID take a real beating of a workout... but at this point I feel that I would like have another one on hand.
This is one great unit, and even though I probably won't be using it all the time, it provides a far better comfort level by just being there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrooklynFisherman Good value
Haven't fished it yet, but looks like quality set for the money. Both rods are well made and feel good. The spinning rod is on the lighter side. Wouldn't use it in saltwater, but will work well for most light-medium freshwater situations. The reel seems good, but the line on it must be changed out right away if you are serious about fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tedstr For the RV Fishmen & women
Very well packaged and handy to store in an RV. Have assembled the poles and practiced a little. Quality appears very good. Wife and I are looking forward to trout fishing later this spring in Missouri trout streams. Will use on other trips where there is fishing available. Highly recommend for the sometimes fisherman and RV traveler. Would also fit very nicely in the trunk of a car for a trip or outing without the RV.

I have fly and spin rods already,but bought this outfit prior to beach vacation since was compact kit and fly + spin. Used both fly and spin at P'cola FL beaches, loved them. Biggest benefits: one combo kit where both rods break down, so easy to move and store. I bought 2nd outfit for my son, just took both sets on canoe/kayak trip in N GA. See pic below of small Rainbow caught on the fly rod Jly 28th.
Outfit seems v good quality, breaks down and stores so easily on-the-go.
