Pros: Cheap price - (you get what you pay for though)
Cons: Poor construction, poor reliability

Summary: I bought a 33 from Walmart today. After about 20 minutes, the whole thing locked up on me and I couldn't reel at all. I returned it to Walmart and they exchanged it for me no problem. When I got home, I cast about 8 times before the ... read more

Summary: The first fishing pole I bought myself (after I got serious about fishing) was a little ultralight deal with a spinning reel. I used it for a number of years, and it was alright. Except that the line tangled after every other cast. One day I got ... read more

Pros: Simple and reliable.
Cons: None I could see.
Summary: In 2003 I bought a more expensive reel for my rod, it was not an off-brand but a more well-known brand. After 3 months of using plain mono it started sticking when I cast. So I switched to a premium Spider Wire which was extra slippery. Same thing ... read more
