Buying a rod and reel combo means that you will know that they work well together. This is a Shakespeare Firebird combo in black and red. It combines a 6ft spinning rod with a beta 30RD reel. The rod is in two pieces and 10-25g with a cushioned DPS reel seat and a matte black finish. The reel has 6Lb dark brown mono and a modern stylish handle with strong titanium guides. Together they offer a combination that is good value for money and are great for beginners and children. The rod is pre-loaded and ready to go.
