I have a 4'8" Shakespeare Microspin combo kit that bought for about 15 dollars from Walmart that caught TONS of trout. Then I have this Shimano Biocraft fly rod and Orvis Battenkill Reel that cost about $300 that caught probably a quarter of what the Shakespeare caught.

If you ask me, I enjoy using both, and it really depends on the places and situation as well as mood. Just remember fish don't care about $300 or $15 rod and reel. Enjoy fishing, keep these fishing deal going!

Have this combo. The reel arrived cracked and pole snapped on 1st use. Save your money.

Yup, invest in a better quality rod and reel starting out and it'll last you a long time. Ugly Stik GX2 and a Shimano Sienna and as long as you take care of it, it should work out well.

That costs 10 times as much

Standard price of the GX2 is $40 and Sienna is $30, if you wait for a sale obviously less. But not 10x as much. Sure you can buy 7 of these setups for what you might pay for the combo I listed above, but when all 7 of them break down on you you'll wish you'll have gotten better quality gear to begin with. You get what you pay for with fishing - I know because I've bought cheap gear before and learned this lesson.

If you don't want to pay $70 for the above combo, I'm sure you can get it for less if you wait for a sale. I'd prefer to wait for a sale than buy junk that will break.

I don't think you'd have to even spend that much more to get something way better. Dick's has those daiwa samaurai X's that usually go on sale for 20-25 for 2! I've pulled in 6,7lb catfish on the light power rod and it did just fine.

True. For freshwater definitely not. But if you ever plan to do any saltwater, better to spend a bit more on something that can hold up to it well. I mean, in general as long as you rinse off your gear after each use you should be OK

A spinning combo for $10 shipped is a good deal. No matter how you slice it. These still work fine and last if you take care of them and use them properly.

What length rod do you usually use for freshwater (spincast)?

If you're just going to catch sunnies with the kids, then it's probably a good deal. If you're serious at all about fishing, spend a bit more and get a better setup.

You don't have to break the bank to get quality gear. I bought a $60 bass fishing pole from Cabelas 8 years ago and it's still going strong. Also I think Cabelas still has their lifetime warranties on their branded items too. I snapped the tip and they exchanged it no questions asked.

That's funny, I bought a ton of fishing poles for $3 from Walmart last year...they are all working fine and caught a TON if trout.

I guess I should spent more money since my fishing gear must be trash.

I didn't say it was trash. It depends on how you fish. Unless you're fly-fishing, fishing for trout is lazy fishing, where you toss, sit, and wait. A $10 combo will probably suffice. If you're actually working the lure, then I'd spend a bit more for better sensitivity, lighter pole and reel, and better warranty.

If the end goal is to catch fish, then you've accomplished it with your $3 setup. However, think of the other factors when fishing: sensitivity, weight, material, durability. That's what you're really paying for when you spend more money.
