Beautiful! was on backorder for two weeks received it on the third week. Haven't had a chance to use it but really excited. Came in excellent condition the tube it came in was bent and ripped halfway around. But the rod survived the trip. As for the bait caster no odd sounds everything's moves smooth. Silverwood lake here I come!!

I have used this combo on three tournaments and it has preformed flawlessly. Just be sure to adjust the clutch prior to bombing those long casts. The reel came set up completely free spooling and caused a birds nest on the first cast. One adjustment and no more problems!

This combo is excellent as an all around rod and reel for bass for the weekend angler. I could imagine some pros using this as well. I would and have recommended this outfit to other anglers.

Smooth and affordable, helps Vets

American Hero is a great combo for the price. I compared to Abu Garcia and BPS for similar models but once I discovered that proceeds from the AH line go to Vet programs my mind was easily made. Very pleased with how it casts, reels and hauls in the 4-6 lb bass. TackleDirect had the best price on the internet and Craig from customer service was awesome helping me resolve a minor damage issue.

Would this be a good backbay fluke/schoolie striper rod for kayak fishing?
1 Answer
It's more designed for freshwater, while you can use it for some light saltwater applications it's not recommended.

How does this cast soft jerk bait like the salty super fluke? Can you feel the softer hits of bass?
1 Answer
The Lews AH1H70MH American Hero Baitcast Combo is sensitive enough to detect bites using the super fluke.

I’m thinking about buying this combo for throwing jigs and weighted Texas rigs for largemouth bass. Would you say this rod is solid enough and has the backbone to throw these types of lures comfortably?
1 Answer
The American Hero Baitcast rod would ave enough backbone for the application your wanting to us e the rod for. This setup would be great throwing jigs and using the Teas rig method.
