I really liked the look of the fishing kit, had all the things to get started, the main thing I liked was that it's compact and easy to carry which I thought was superb, the bits in the box looked really good, only downside was that the fishing line that comes with it is quite weak and nothing in the description. I placed a half ounce weight on. The line and cast and the line snapped, the reel seemed quite smooth, but without the ability to cast far with a good weight ended my fishing early with lots of lost tackle, will be upgrading the line to something more suited to sea fishing. Overall was good value for money, just needs a few tweaks.
Thanks for the message, and apologies for the problems with the line. Usually this rod comes with 28.5/100 diameter line, which is around 12lb breaking strain, so should comfortably cast a half ounce weight. Perhaps the line had been weakened in some way either with a kink, knot etc, either way sorry about that. We would be happy to swap the set for another for you so that you don't have to purchase new line. If you take it to your closest store or return via the online process then we can exchange for another set.
Apologies for the inconvenience,
Bought this fishing rod as it had every thing I need it's cheap and cheerful and serves its purpose ideal for fitting in a small case to take abroad . The only downside to it was the fishing line wasn't the best
