A fishing rod that can transport anywhere
By
from Nottingham
Overall Rating

" Wanted an extra rod for my son aged 10, who has taken up fishing this last year. Looked for a telescopic rod which makes it so much easier to transport. This set comes with reel and many other accessories. It was easy to use, the reel was fine, even though the line it came with was rather thick - would be good if we hook into anything big!
A good set for the money.

The line and hooks are not great
By
from Weybridge
Overall Rating
2 of 5
2Stars Fair
Recommend to a friend? No
" The rod is fine, the reel is poor quality but works fine. The line has been wound too tightly onto the reel so it easily springs off - a nightmare for fishing new comers . The line is too thick for course fishing, likely designed for sea fishing, which means when you try to tie the hook lines, which are made for course fishing and which are very thin, the line snaps very easily! Again the hooks are very poor. Tieing a 2lb line to a 10lb line tightly enough is not very easy. Not happy at all. "

" [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very light and easy to use. Looks very nice as well think this product is brilliant for beginners as you get everything you need. First time my daughter has done any kind of fishing and absolutely loved it. Easy storage as the rod can be shortened. 10 out of 10 from me and my daughter "

The telescopic fishing rod is ideal for young fishermen, nice and light with a smooth reel. Good selection of hooks and floats too. Take a look at YouTube, 'Matt Hayes adventure tv' for a demonstration of this product and hints and tips. Great starter kit, very pleased with this product. "

" [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Lets start by making it clear I'm not an Angler, but from the initial use of this with my friend (who is an angler), I can say that this is a good quality product that is easy to use and quite well equipped, well enough to impress my friend.
The rod extends and collapses easily, the accessories are fairly comprehensive for a beginner and the book gives good basics.
Now if only I can catch something for tea!
