Upon taking it out of the box, I extended the rod. After pretend casting it a few times, I attempted to retract the rod. The tip section was stuck and I could not get it back in. I used as much force as I could without risk of snapping the rod. So, I left it partially retracted which left the tip protruding from the "pen" housing.
I took it out the the river to test it out. Surprisingly, it casted amazingly far. The casting button on the bottom is very shoddy though. Becareful not to press hard or else the reel will pop open. During my fishing trip, I caught a small catfish that weighed less than a pound. While reeling it in, the rod snapped. The tip then slid down the line into the water. I had to be extra careful reeling in the fish. If the line snaps, the tip would be lost in the river. I managed to reel in the fish by using one hand to create an eye loop guide for the string and pushing the base of the rod into my stomach while my other hand reeled in slowly.
I ended up reeling in the catfish, but at the cost of a broken rod. The Coleman combo costs $9.99 with $7.99 shipping. According to the Coleman warranty, they will replace the rod if I pay for shipping to them along with an enclosed payment of $7.99 for the return shipping. For that price, I might as well purchase another one(not wasting my money). Now my 3-piece combo(used to be 2-piece) is sitting inside the plastic housing it came in and sitting in the garage.Read more ›
Insult punctuated injury when I referenced the included 30 warranty, which informed me of an opportunity to receive a second shoddy disappointment for only $7.99 for shipping. For less than $3 more I could just buy another one from Walgreens without the added hassle and expense of a trip to UPS! If your experience is anything like mine, you won't need that 30 warranty because the Coleman Fish Pen won't last 30 minutes.
The pen came as stated, quick and perfect! Easy to assemble. Caught a Rainbow Trout a little bigger than the fishing rod BEFORE extending, so it didnt change my luck, I still "suck" at fishing. Ordering a few more for GREAT gifts!!
