    I have been flyfishing for almost 30 years and teaching it for our state Fish & Game dept for 20. My go to rods for trout and bass are TFO so I bought this combo for a private student learning to flyfish. Took it out in the yard for a test run before giving it to him just to know what we are working with. Twenty to 45 foo casts are easy and accurate. Shooting 10 feet of line very doable and it handles a double haul 65 foot cast as well. My student was able to shoot line in his first lesson. Have I seen better? Yes. But this rod at this price is a steal. I recommended it to a class of thirty recently and I'm happy a few of them took my advice.

    Purchased this as my first fly rod, and I am very pleased. Took it to the river yesterday. It is easy to cast and seems to be very responsive. The case is such a great plus. It is sturdy and great to keep in the back of the Jeep! Great value. Great set.

    The action of the rod is excellent, which gives you the possibility to cast with ease. It also has lifetime warranty. Can't beat this kit for the price!

    Heard about these rods from a fly shop assistant who recommended them for the company's no-fault warranty and good rod quality. It came in the mail recently and was what I expected. Far better in feel and flex than my last rod. Will be excited to spring fish with it here soon!

    You can see the quality as soon as you unzip the case, very nice combo. Will cherish this Christmas gift forever, especially since it has the TFO lifetime warranty.
    Thank you STP for providing this product at less than half the MSRP.

    First things first, I'm only reviewing this combo because I can't believe these haven't all been scooped up. Just buy them already! These rods make perfectly good beginner combos, as well as truck rods, backup rods, loaner rods, or, if you're on a tight budget, primary rods. Regarding backing capacity, arbor size, etc., I haven't seen my backing yet this season, and I fish too much. In fact, I haven't had more than a dozen fish "on the reel", and half those didn't really justify it, but, hey, no one was watching, and sometimes it's just fun to play.

    I bought this rod combo for a friend who wanted to go fishing with me. Let's just say he didn't have any bad habits. We did a some casting lessons, and then went fishing. My takeaway: if I had learned to cast with a rod as good as this one, I'd have had a lot less frustration and a much shorter learning curve.

    The rod is great. The cork isn't. Cork doesn't catch fish. The reel is serviceable. The line is fine. The included rod tube is top notch.

    For about the price of a good fly line, you're gonna be in business. The fish don't care what you paid for your outfit.

    Spend the rest of your money on leaders, tippet, and flies. If you still have money left, thank me and go get a casting lesson or take a guided half day trip.

    Just buy it already!!!
