Rod Make & Model

Make:
MSRP ($):
34.99
The Bass Pro Shops "Brawler" Spinning Reel combo features a lightweight, tough design with all-metal gears, a double anodized-aluminum spool with a double-anodized silver lip, a powerful and smooth 6-disc front drag system, and a 32-point anti-reverse system. Stainless steel bail wire, ergonomic rubber handle grip. The incredibly powerful Brawler rods feature a Triple Bonded Hybrid Blank. The 24-ton slit carbon core provides backbone, action, and sensitivity; then a layer of 8-ton E-glass adds incredible strength and flexibility; and finally, an 8-ton E-glass spiral wrap shields the exterior for unheard-of durability. All this means unbelievable strength combined with just the right amount of flexibility to give you a series of all-purpose rods that you'll have to fish to believe. The solid fiberglass, high-vis white tip is durable and responsive, and the full EVA handles reduce weight and increase comfort. Tough, slick aluminum oxide guides top off these value-priced fish-whippers.

Great Combo for the Price

I purchased this combo from Bass Pro Shops about a month ago and have taken it out fishing a few times on a small pond and a lake. I have been very thrilled with how smooth it casts, I've been able to cast out nearly an additional 30ft on average. The tip of the rod tends to bend and catapult my line and bait a little farther with same amount of energy I use on my other combos. The retrieval is quite smooth as well and the rod doesn't bounce around as much as my older rods which I've owned for three years now.

I don't think I will use this in small creeks due to the 7ft length and getting caught up in overhangs and trees. For kayak and bank fishing this is an excellent combo and the price is right. This past weekend I had several fishermen ask me if I was using an Ugly Stick because the white tip.

If you are looking for a good rod & reel combo for freshwater fishing and don't want to spend a ton of money I highly recommend the BPS Brawler.
