Good price point rod and reel
December 18, 2014
This is a price point rod reel combo. I have the 8000 series reel with the 10' rod for surf fishing. Good setup but not top of the line. I bought this to get into surf fishing. It does a nice job and is a little better than an entry level reel. Nice smooth retrieve but not the smoothest out there. Brings in a fish nice. I spooled mine with 50# braid and it works well. It has been a good setup for me.
Pros:Good off the shelf setup
Cons:Not as smooth as battle but is priced accordingly
