Beautiful rod, but action feels lighter than stated.
I received my rod with one guide damaged (bent, with the insert ring ready to pop out) due to poor packaging for shipping. The rod was taped to the inside of a floppy, poorly constructed triangular box that looked like a gorilla had stepped on it. A cardboard rod tube would have been a logical shipp...
Snapped on 3rd cast
The rod looks great and I've used my son's 6'6 version which performs great, but this one was garbage. Broke casting a shakey head worm on the 3rd cast. I don't know if it's quality control issues or just a dud, but it super sucked to get out on the water and this to happen. Not cool. .. :/ Update: ...

I had $100 budget for a rod and real. How'd I do?
I found the Diawa Fuego CT for $48 on Amazon (new but shipped from Japan) and got the Daiwa AIRD-X 7'3" MHF for $55 with free shipping. Second pic is the whole arsenal. Technically, the red one is my daughter's but I use it after her attention span has been exceeded. Took the Daiwa to the lake today and I like it a lot.
Any good spinning combos under $50 available at dick’s, Walmart, or cabelas?
Both of those will perform better than the components of the ugly Stik combo. If you can stretch the budget a bit more by not buying that baitcaster, then look at the Shimano Sienna or Daiwa Crossfire paired with a Berkley CherryWood or Lightning Rod, or Daiwa Aird-X. If you just want a combo, look at the Abu Garcia BlackMax spinning combo. All of these options will be lighter, more sensitive, have better backbone, and a better reel than the Ugly Stik combos.

Best bait casting setups (combo or seperate) under 150$
Daiwa Fuego CT and Daiwa Aird X… I have 3 of these combos in different gear ratios and rod stiffnesses. Fantastic value for money.

Not made with any quality at all.
The insert in the eye at the rod tip came out on my first fishing trip with this rod. It cut my braided line on a cast and sent a $15 lure flying. Do NOT buy this rod. Cheaply made.

First baitcaster
Little bit over 150 for both, but I just got a Daiwa Fuego and put it on a Daiwa Aird X for my first baitcasting setup. Been great so far, very smooth.

My Lews Mach Pro just.. well.. broke. any good all around bass rod suggestions?
I'm slightly biased towards Japanese brands, but Daiwa Aird X for $50, Shimano SLX ($100) or St. Croix Bass-X as recommended ($115-$120ish).
