This set is excellent for those who want to start fly fishing, but do not want to spend much money.
If one only use the reel as a bobbin to store the line (as it is normally use and to reel the fish in by hand) then it should last a lifetime.
Excellent first fly rod for my son.
This was purchased while on sale however I did go with the intention of paying full price as this is very very well made and perfectly balanced kit made to last. The size being just below the standard 9' is perfect for rivers and odd reservoir. All in all a great piece a kit.
All you need to start and get into fly fishing
Fly selection is ok but not great
At this price, this set is impossible to beat as a beginners intro to fly fishing.
Nice action, light, easy to cast, value for money
