I bought this combo due to the special they had at the Deforest Gander Mountains Grand reopening. I had to take the first combo back and get it replaced as its spool was not secure and bouncing about an 1/8th of an inch around. When the fishing tech was grabbing a new reel of the last combo he dropped the real from about 5 feet. I took it out that afternoon and had some practice casts with it and it preforms well enough for a beginner with a casting rod. I am only getting backlashes about 1 in 20 casts.

    Comments about Guide Series Baitcaster Combo:

    Picked this up last week and finaly got to try it out this weekend. Took a little bit to get the reel dialed in so it wouldn't backlash but I think its all set now and managed to pull in some good Blue Gill and a couple decent Bass. Didn't notice that the rod was 1 piece but i guess thats my bad, just makes it a little hard to fit into my Jeep and for that reason I wouldnt buy this set again but other than that I'm happy with it.
