Best Combo Ever -
By: Fishrmn123 from June Lak, CA
This rod is a great rod for trout. I used this rod while backpacking through Yosemite and it was spot on perfect for the fish i was catching. Not to mention great reels too. Smooth, durable, and powerful. Definitely recommend this for use.

Not having had the opportunity to use this product yet, as it only arrived yesterday, only preliminary impressions are pertinent. The outfit seems well packaged and presented, and small and complete enough to take on most trips as only leaders and lures/flies are required for fishing to commence.
I have had this combo kit for over two years now and have frankly been struggling with it. The spinner reel and the line that came with the package has been awful. Constantly twisted and knotting up. The reel itself is flimsy and difficult to work. The fly reel is standard and works fine on my Orvis bamboo rod. Yesterday, I took my son fishing and the tip of the rod just ejected itself into the lake when my lure was slighly caught on a reed. My view is that I purchased this combo to have the ability to stop at anytime and fish with the expectation that the last thing I would need to worry about is the durability abn reliablity of the product. I have an 70s Orvis bamboo rod that they refinished and it is truly a work of art in terms of their restoration work but my expectations did not translate into this combo set.. I want a product to work flawlessly so I can concentrate on the important aspects of presentation and enjoying the moment. Instead, I ended up spending unnecessary time hassling with the equipment and wishing I had my Sage XP rod and Able reel.

What a kit ,it has all you need for a lightweight holiday or just a day out. you could drop the wife off shopping and enjoy a good quality fishing rod and reels [good stuff]
Nice to have available when an opportunity to go fishing comes up while traveling. Good action for fly and light spinning.

I received the Frequent Flyer Fly/Spinning Combo as a graduation gift from my grandfather. I was very excited because I had been asking for one for a long time. So you can imagine how disappointed I was when the 7th attachment snapped when I set the hook on a good fish. What's worse, when I called to see if I could send it in, I was told that it was not possible and that I would have to buy the package again if I wanted the 7th attachment. I work in a tackle shop in northern California and I've always backed Orvis gear. Needless to say I do not endorse their gear anymore. Very disappointing.
