I caught a 4ft. Blacktip off of Tybee Island Pier. I really had a hard time with it. The problem was the rod weight and diameter along with the action, (stiffnes). The configuration of this rod makes it really hard to contol. I have to lower my initial rating.
I bought the 10' and 15' versions of these rods.
The 10' came with the spinning reel, but it broke after the first use.
The 15' rod came in a three pieces, with the third bottom piece seriously discolored.
These rods are way too heavy for 40lb line rods. The 15' is uncomfortable and terrible to cast with. Using a pendelum swing, it casts no further than a 10' rod. I just look like a douche with a giant rod at the beach.
To reel it in, you would need a fighting belt to hold the giant rod. This leads to another major problem with these rods.
These rods are way too thick. It doesn't fit in a fighting belt gimbal or a sand spike rod holder. I have heavy 3" schedule 40 pvc rod holders, which cannot accommodate these fat fishing rods. This thing has no "action" sensitivity. It's like fishing with a broom stick.
The build quality is very poor, but the reel that came in the combo is worse.
The reel seized up the fist day I used it. As I was casting beyond the surf, an oncoming sanbar wave wet my reel. I guess the water and sand penetrated the gears, because it seized up. I tried repairing it at home, but it wasn't worth it. The components are too cheap and cannot be put back together.
The rods are pretty trashed. I tried taking good care of these rods, since I like keeping my things organized, but the line guides started falling off for no reason. One day, I just noticed that a line guide on each rod was missing.
I suggest paying more for a quality surf rod. Compared to other surf rods like a Penn Prevail 11' rod, these rods are trash. Other surf rods are very slim, but these oversized rods are too cumbersome.
Basically it is more expensive to buy these cheap rods than to buy a quality one in the first place. In the long run, these rods won't be productive fishing tools. The whole point of fishing is to enjoy yourself and be efficient at catching fish. These rods inhibit any fishing productivity or enjoyment.
A general note on inexpensive rods this size: if you don't mind voiding a warranty, replace the rod tip with a 1-piece stainless steel (no insert) tip, or a tip with a metal insert. These can cost between $3-$15. The insert on the factory tip disintegrated after I accidentally reeled a big barrel swivel into it in the dark, and the remaining metal edge frayed my line before I noticed.
Reel seems good so far, but upgrading to a mid range PENN Battle or the like is a different world. I've had a little problem with the bail, so I'm worried how this will hold up, as well as the reel's ability to hold up to the harsh sand and surf. (I'm very careful, don't drop in sand or water and thoroughly rinse, so hopefully this will last for years.)
10' rod is a little heavy (I mostly like to cast and jig rather than leave it in the spike) and rod action is pretty heavy/stiff, but OK. Not sure the weight difference, but, if I bought again, I'd probably go for the 9' or possibly less and I like a little more action in the rod. (This is where being able to feel/test the merchandise beats buying online.)
Overall, satisfied and give it 4 STARS, particularly for the value. Don't expect the quality of a few hundred dollar outfit, but for the price, the occasional surf fisher can't go wrong.
