“I have put a dent in the gulf coast fish population! This rig casts almost to
cuba. A 4 foot shark was not even a problem.”

“Quality product with reasonable price. Caution, the reels come without line. Have not been able to use this product yet but am looking forward to surf fishing in Va Beach.”

“A great rod and reel! I have already caught 9 big crabs that were yummy! I LOVE MY PURCHASE !~ THANKS!”

“This was purchased for a friend, when he saw it he loved it right away. The length of the two pieces are ideal and the construction looks sturdy. The rod has not been used, but I would recommend buying it.”
