I have more fun with this rod and reel versus my other 11 fishing poles ($49.99-$129.99) that I have. For the price point of around $40 w/ tax, this is a great buy. You can stow it away in a camel bak back pack or simply anywhere because of the size of the case. It has a built in tackle box to hold lures (might I suggest 1/16 oz brown rooster tail). They do not hold loose hooks well, buy eh, I didn't purchase this as a hook and bobber system. Enough said, this is a must have in your arsenal of fishing gear.
The picture is of the fish I caught, the day the dawai mini spin came in the mail. This was my Diawa's first 15 min.
UPDATE 7/9/2014: Going into my third season with this setup and am still 100% happy with it for use as a backpacking pole. My main reason for posting this update was to report that the issue mentioned above where the tip section was VERY tight upon first assembly has recurred at the beginning of each season. Both last year and this year it got stuck so tightly the first time it was put together that I was absolutely certain it was going to break before it could be separated again. Obviously a tight fit is necessary as the last thing you want is for the tip to go flying off during a cast - and maybe some of these are made looser than mine was - but based on my experience, I would absolutely suggest putting a very light coat of petroleum jelly on that last joint before inserting it for the first time (and again at the beginning of each season). The tip section joint is just raw fiberglass and seems to depend more on friction to stay put so I wouldn't use anything lighter or slipperier than petroleum jelly to lube it as it might make the joint more prone to come apart. All the other sections have a different type of joint and they have worked flawlessly every time.
Also, when breaking it out for the first time this season, I noticed that the reel felt a little stiff, so broke it part way down and squirted a little WD-40 into it and it instantly worked like brand new again. As with any machinery, I suppose a little lube now and then would be a good idea.
At any rate, am still extremely happy with this little beauty - definitely money well spent.
I did use the reel it came with, but I have also replaced it with a Zebco trigger, which with a little modification will fit into the case, and I use the open face for a backup.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this kit, and I will have to buy another for the bag since this one is staying in my canoe!
