Just for those asking, the light vs medium designation is not so much dependent on if you are trying to catch small fish or bigger fish. It is used to determine what size line and lure weight to use with the rod.

Now typically you will use bigger/heavier baits for bigger fish, but there many other factors on why you would go with a light vs medium or even bigger.

So, even if you are only targeting small fish, the light may jot be what you want. This is particularly true if you are using a hook bait and an bobber to fish for sunfish. Sure the fish are small, but you are going to be able to cast a medium rod better than a light rod with that tackle since it is better suited for the weight of that tackle.

The backbone of the rod is what tells you if it can heave in a 30# fish, not the power rating. Now "backbone" is not going to be a spec listed anywhere and is more of a feel thing. These rods are not suited for regularly landing bigger fish.

Got 2 of the lights last year on the same deal and have caught hundreds of fish on each. Biggest was a 26in catfish. Very solid value.

I jumped into this deal two years ago, and I have to warn you guys that these things are tough and you will have no excuses to upgrade.

Awesome! Just got my 4 year old daughter into fishing and both my spinning reels have gone missing. The fish are small where I live, probably use the light one more.

We fish for smallmouth bass 20-30 times a year, and almost all of the 6 combos I have bought for myself and others has held up for over 4 years. 1 spinning reel bit the dust, the mechanism that flips the bail broke, but that was after 3 years, and I did no preventative maintenance.

The poles and reels are heavier (as in the overall weight), but I only know that because my high dollar stuff is light. 2 for 30 is a great deal for anyone who wants to get into fishing or needs some spares for friends.

Mine are coming out to $40?

Why is that? Am I doing something wrong? (Well obviously, haha)

The discount says: "BUY 2 FOR $40 ON DAIWA 7' SAMURAI X 2-PIECE SPINNING COMBO"

Any suggestions?

Too bad dicks website sucks. It shows my previous order which is like 30 items and I can't delete them from my cart. Otherwise, still a good deal for intro rods.

The 7' rod is more expensive for the deal you gotta do the 6' medium ones.

This is what got me fishing almost a year ago. I got the 6 foot one as well as the pink one. It was great as a starter but the flex on it is too soft. Perhaps ok for light trout fishing but for bass fishing a little too light. Yes it will handle the fish but I don't like the way the tip bounces around after casting.

If it were a friend, I would probably recommend the 7 footer just because it's supposed to be a stouter rod.

These are decent rods and reels for the price. Just don't do what I did and slam a car door on the tip of the rod.
