I'm not super impressed by the reel, it is smooth and all, but doesn't stand out as anything special. For a combo pack, it is a good deal. You can switch the reel when you feel like you need to, not very hard to do.
I stronger recommend getting this setup as an entry level do-it-all.
If I could give negative stars for the reel I would. Like many others have mentioned the reel is garbage. The spindle on mine doesn't go low enough for the line to go on evenly. I end up with a bunch of line at the bottom of the spindle. Needless to say I used a different reel. Amazon Customer Service is great as usual and sending out another combo. It's not worth the extra $10 for the combo and headache.
UPDATE #1 I received the replacement combo today. The new real spooled line much more evenly. Still heavy on the bottom however acceptable. I'll update when I get a chance to use it.
Update: caught a 20lb blue cat (see pics) with this combo and it handled it extremely well. She pulled hard but i wasn’t worried about breaking the rod. Yanked her right up on the rocks with it.
I used 14-pound test, which I think is the top end for this particular reel, and it was fine. Can't tell you if the rod will hold up because other than a couple of small "throw 'em backs" I didn't catch much today, but I still had a blast with this rod and reel. And the price? Great!

This is a combo of an awesome rod with a pathetic wheel. I would have gone for a better rod without a feel for that price but this wasn't a great loss although.
For the price, the quality of construction of the rod --it is an easy decision.
One gripe I have about it is the reel does not have a reverse switch. Although made of aluminium, the cap seems to be made of flimsy plastic. I do not mind so much, as it is my first rod. An additional point to note is that the black grip is made from some type of hard sponge material which, because it has fine pores, easily traps any dirt and grime on it (trout dough!). Despite these two minor issues, I think it deserves a full 5/5 and I look forward to beginning my fishing hobby on the right foot with the right company.
