Dick's Sporting Goods has the Abu Garcia Black Max/Vengeance Baitcast Combo [dickssportinggoods.com] on sale for $69.98 and includes a $20 manufacturer's mail in rebate bringing the final cost to $50 + tax. Great reviews and looks like a solid price for an intermediate fishing level combo.

Alternatively, I found this combo from Cabela's for $40, so pretty much a free rod: OOS

Cabela's combo is a 2-piece rod whereas Dick's in a 1-piece rod. Might make a difference to some.

I use this reel on a Cabelas Wuppin Stick rod (8ft L). Have had the combo for a couple years now & no issues at all. I paid 50 for each though so this is a pretty darn good deal in comparison.

Possibility that it was a private model made for Walmart?

Oops forgot to mention. Came with the Abu Garcia black max rod. Had it out for half a day and snapped when trying to pull out a snagged line from some shallow water. Didnt take much force. Reel broke when dropping the rod from 3 feet high. Glad i had my old penn captiva 5000 to back me up. The vengeance rod might be stronger then the wally world version.. Who knows

I have 2 vengance rods and a black max reel. I had bad luck with my first vengance rod, 2 of the eyelet inserts cracked/shattered and i had to return it. New ones have been fine. These are warrantied by the manufacturer FWIW. 9 dollar replacement charge for shipping, but otherwise they do a good job honoring their warranty as long as you tell them you broke it during the normal course of fishing. (you didnt run over it with your truck or your dog didnt eat it).

Its also worth noting that cabelas regularly has the rod on sale for 20 bucks. Also... its last years model i believe. The updated model is silver and has a slightly different design. One of the two i own is silver.

The reel isn't top quality equipment but is widely regarded as a reliable budget reel. I have had no problems with mine. Not the smoothest or highest quality piece of equipment, but its a nice starter.

I bought two of these from Field & Stream at $40 a piece after the same $20 MIR. This isn't a slick deal. This was right before Memorial Day. I like them, but I would advise on waiting until they are back at the $40 price point, which is the cost of the BlackMax reel alone.

Walmart doesn't have the Vengeance rod combo. What you have is the BlackMax combo. The rod says BlackMax on it and it is a Medium. The Vengeance is a Medium Heavy. I haven't had an issue with mine, the Walmart or the Field&Stream (Dick's) combos.

Either way, hope you get a combo you are comfortable with and happy fishing.

Edit: Didn't see your second post clarifying the combo. I will definitely keep on eye on all three of my Abu Garcia combos thanks to you and Loochy88's post about the issues you have had.

All the professional fishermen in here talking about buying $50 rods. For most people this is probably more than enough.
