4.0 out of 5 stars Used as intended, they work great!, August 2, 2011
By 
This review is from: Mini Pocket Fishing Rod / Reel (Misc.)
I love them. I got the tiny fishing rods at [...] for $18.
I got a fly reel and a spinning reel...both work quite well though it does take some time to reel in all that line with the fly reel. It is fun though and a tiny fish feels like a whale. I am very glad I got them. I wouldn't go salmon fishing with them but just like anything, used as intended they work quite well. There is another version of this product but I don't recommend it. Very over priced and I question the quality. They are cheap little things and I spent $20 at [...] expecting the money to be a waste, but two adults used these rod/reels to fish for less than 3 pound trout for days. They should be used as a "better than nothing" rod, don't take them fishing expecting to get a 10 pound Bass...I am not sure what would happen but I doubt it will end well. I bought them for the size, as with anything compact it is not as good as the original, but for my case it wasn't worth taking a regular or even compact rod to catch tiny little trout. We caught one fish that was maybe 18 inches but most were less than 12 inches. The rod never felt like it was going to break or anything. The spinning reel worked VERY well, the fly reel is so tiny that you do have to turn it very fast to reel in the line...which means the fish may get off, but if you're just fishing for fun then it isn't a big deal. We also used the bungee bobber at [...]and it worked out, but keep in mine this is fly fishing for "fun" so keep your expectations low. Again, I bought the rods knowing that the was no way I could bring a larger one so my though was this is better than nothing so if you have a situation where your options are to bring no rod or use this one, this will be VERY VERY WORTH IT. We had 2 full days of fun because of these rods with out the small rod we wouldn't have been able to fish at all. I have looked in to many other versions and I recommend the ones at another website store.
