I bought this as my first Fishing rod . Sadly, within a few months , while reeling in , the line has caused a cut in the fiber glass and tore apart a portion of rod from the top(from the thinnest fibre ) . The line used was 0.40mm . Weight - 50gm .
The reel however is very solid and works great . They could have combined it with a little bigger reel than the current size .
Overall its a good rod for shore fishing with a 11 ft length. Casting far away was quite easy .
Bought this for fishing from the beach with my boys on the North Norfolk coast and we all had a blast. They couldn't believe how near the surf we were catching. Very light and obviously portable. Would have been nice with a few more lead weights and tackle options but overall excellent.
