Our grandson was thrilled with the 3/4 Fly Fishing Starter Package, (7' 4-piece Fly Rod) we gave him for his high school graduation present. Right after he opened it we put it together and tried it out on the front lawn. As a 45-year veteran of fly fishing, I was very impressed with the workmanship in this rod and the way it casts. It is well-paired with an adjustable drag large arbor 3/4 weight reversible aluminum reel with backing and very supple 3 weight-forward floating line that shoots smoothly through the guides and lays out straight. The included reel, line, leader, fly box, flies, rod sleeve and travel case are all first rate. The value I found in this product exceeds the cost by a wide margin. I will confidently recommend this package to others interested in purchasing a high-quality outfit. The moniker "starter package" for some may imply sub-premium quality. In my view, they may rest assured the quality and performance of this outfit far exceeds expectations usually associated with "starter" kits. My grandson is eager to use his new outfit and I am excited to join him in his renewed interest in the sport.
Overall I am very please with the setup. Have already caught bass, sunfish and crappie. The reason I bought the rod was for stream fishing for trout. I caught a brookie on my first outing. The slow action rod is perfect for small streets. Great customer support. I received the combo and had to change the reel from left to right retrieve. It was an easy fix after I called customer support and watched the YouTube video, but could have been easier if I read the ordering directions. While ordering the combo you can ask for a right hand retrieve reel, otherwise it comes spooled in left handed retrieve. Another note on the reel is that the drag does have a click sound, but when reeling in, it is a quiet retrieve.
I purchased a 3wt fly kit to use on some local trout streams. The rod casts very well, the reel s very smooth with a great drag system (looks like a Redington?). The included tippets and fl;y box are great quality! I sent the link to the web site to some friends and they are now happy customers too.
