Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaynathan For the price...
Bought this rod & reel combo while in Maine on vacation. Felt good in the hand, bail set is positive and felt. Pre-loaded with about 200 yards of 12lb test monofilament.
Used it the very next day for some smaller stripers, No bird nests with all kinds of different lures and baits. The one thing I did notice was this two piece does have a tendency to not hold together, Multiple times is while casting I could see the upper half of the rod come loose and almost come apart. Over all, an very good rod. action and sensitivity to a light hit were great, handled the big hits with out a problem. Drag was set to just below about three quarters and was easily adjustable. I would give this an 8 to 8.5 out of 10. But for the price....can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CajunSaltwater Outstanding for the Price
Negative reviews baffle me on this item. As with anything, you get what you pay for, and here, you are not paying for a $1,000 fishing combo. I have a couple of those, and they are outstanding. This item, however, is outstanding for what it is. You will not find a better $50 combo on the market. And as with everything else, LL Bean backs it 100% for a lifetime. They've made a believer out of me.

The rod on the set is ok but the reel is poor quality as the drag is weak. I hope LLB improves the quality of their reels soon.

We ordered this spinning rod and reel for our son's birthday. It arrived quickly, well packaged and in good order. My husband said it was well made and he like the quality.
