Shimano SLX combo
April 21, 2020
I normally buy combos, just quicker and easier for me do run out a grab one. This is hands down my favorite combo. the reel cast smooth and easy the crank is even smoother. the rod is of excellent quality and I have had zero issues with either all year. I mainly kayak fish so at times my casting ability is very limited when so I always pick up my SLX.
ProsSmooth casting and reel
Consnone so far
Best budget combo

Both the rod and especially the reel punch way above their price range
Great Bang for the Buck Combo

You will not find a better all around bass casting combo at this pricepoint than this. Went with the 6'10" MH with the SLX150HG reel and it is perfect for topwater, bladed jigs and spinnerbaits. Rolled with it all summer and have no complaints.
ConsNo external break setting on the reel, but for me that is not a deal breaker as the internal break are easy to set and once you get them where you want it there is no need to fiddle with them.
Second time the charm!

Lost my first rod/reel combo to Dave Jones Locker after 1 day! Doh! Bought the same MH/F combo and used it for a few weeks now. Initially, I thought this setup was too stiff for the 1/2 to 3/4 oz baits I was throwing, but after some time, I’m very pleased with the way it casts and handles frogs, top water, and buzz baits. Great rod for Bass and snakeheads! TD customer service was a welcome relief do deal with and really helped me out. Will definitely look here first for future purchases!
ProsLight weight, great casting distance, no backlashes.
ConsYep, it does NOT float.

I own this in the medium action rod, for the price it is great quality. Best off shelf combo I’ve ever bought. Perfectly balanced combo
Cons2 piece rod option would make it better as a traveling rod
Performs and is comfortable

$100 rod and a $100 for 160? Plus get 10% off. This is a hard to beat set up. I have the medium heavy with the HG reel and am very pleased. No doubt I would buy again. Only reason I'm not buying more is I already have all the rods I "need".
ProsComfortable rod and reel Smooth casting (rarely gets a nest and it bombs) Smooth reeling
ConsReel is not very adjustable
Great looking combo

This is a great looking combo. Reel seems to be the best I have ever owned. As I type this I will add I have not used the combo but comparing with the many rods and reels I have owned. This combo is on top of the list.
