Great value but not perfect

For £10 you really can't go wrong with this combo.

The line it comes loaded with isn't good quality but is easily change.

The reel lets a bit of line off when you wind in but this isn't a big deal

Bang on for the money

Great rod and reel for absolute pennies! I did swap the line for some 6lb mono and use it for perch on the lures,Can't fault it.

I underestimated this rod

I have caught 2 pike, both 3lb and also perch to 2lbs. This was my first rod and I think it is great for the price

A brilliant starting rod.

Brilliant for beginners. I've been fishing every other week for about a year now and I still have and use this rod and reel combo. I have caught loads of decent sized fish on this. Change the line tho

Awful reel!!

The line gets caught in the mechanism of the reel.

Cracking rod

Bought this as a cheap disposable combo .... But was really impressed with the rod... Has a decent action and caught 4 perch and a couple of dace on its first outing.... Line needs replacing ASAP!

Brilliant for the price

Couldn't recommend this more, I've caught 4 pound pike and trout on this rod (and even hoisted the trout up a waterfall) the reel line is rubbish and needs changing from the outset, great rod though.

Excellent rod

Excellent rod for fishing small streams and rivers, i use it for brown trout fishing and waggler for roach, just needs fresh line as most reels do and you are good to go, had mine for 4 years

Nice rod, bad reel

I bought 2 of these for my daughters to use (with my guidance) and both reels, within minutes, had jammed because the line came off and got tangled within the mech. I fixed both but it happened again.

Firebird Combo ?? ??

This rod is great
I originally got it for dropshoting but it's a little too big for that, not a bad thing it will be a small lure rod for me I enjoy using this rod bit will need a new line for the reel

Absolute steal! Ive been using this rod with a different reel with braided line for pike on canals.. dead baiting and lures cant go wrong.. used for a bit of boat spinning for bike aswell.

Shakespeare Firebird combo

I purchased this particular combo a couple of years ago and have used it extensively for catching small bass, I found the line was inadequate so put on a bigger reel and line with 20lb mono. Not had much big on it yet but have fun using it as a fun back up in the surf at Dungeness between my two 15 footers. All gonna try using it for mackerel next year very versatile little set! Love it !!

Fishing rod

I bought this rod for my 8 year old Grandson. He has used it on a few occasions and loves it. The rod has worked very well even landing a lb10 Carp.

Not worth the hassle, very poor.

Purchased for my 10 years old, my 7 year old has a £20 rod that is much better. First time out, the cheap line became twisted within seconds of use. The line became wrapped under the bail spool. To remove the spool you have to undo a thumb nut to find two loose elements that could easily get lost (small red washer and a toothed cog). Rubbish hence the price tag. You don't have to spend much more to get something much much better.
