Review 1 for Zebco Crappie Fighter Spinning Combo, Light, 2-Piece

Good combo for the price.

The combination works good together. Reel is already loaded with line. Don't suggest buying the extra length pole if you think it will help you cast further, as the longer pole is a little flimsy.

This combo is a great value, and fun to fish with. I've caught fish from 3 inch Pumpkinseed to a 16 inch Mackinaw/Lake Trout with this rod, and it allowed me to feel the fight of the Pumpkinseed, but also had enough power for the Trout. If you're looking for a longer rod that is cheap, this might be the best choice.
The reel is very light and has a pretty good drag, and the 8' rod isn't heavy enough to be uncomfortable for me even with the small reel to balance it.
I replaced the included 4 lb line with 6 lb Trilene XL when I got it, so I can't comment on how good the line is. The two lines seemed to be about the same diameter, so the Trilene is probably a better line. I also asked Zebco about the line capacity, and they said it is prefilled with 200 yards of 4 lb line.
The only downsides to this combo are that the reel feels a little "cheap and plasticky" (though it still works fine, and the new models look nicer), and the bottom line guide on the rod seems smaller than most spinning rods. This doesn't seem to limit casting distance much, but it's always possible to add a bigger guide if you want to.
