Got the new reel out yesterday. After a little tweaking with the brakes and spool tension I'm very happy with it. Huge difference between a cheapo and good reel. Now I want to find a decent rod for it being that was a cheap one just to see if I was going to enjoy baitcasters.

Ahh yes.... the force is strong in this one. Wait til you buy a very nice rod to match the nice reel. Your life and wallet will never be the same again.  ~roflmao

Enjoy the new reel!!  ~beer~

Many good rods out there now for the $125-200 price. Dobyns Sierra is a killer rod, as well as the St Croix Mojo Bass (2nd Gen).

Lol it's sad how easy I get sucked into stuff. I have more expensive hobbies then I like to admit. My wife just looks at me funny when I starting buying stuff. She fishes with a $40 dicks sporting goods special and does just as good as I do as long as I rig her line, touch the bait, tell her where to throw, pull the fish on the bank and remove the hook. She's good at reeling lol.

I'm a little cheap right now because I just bought a new race motorcycle but I did find a lews mach 1 6'10" MH on clearance for $34 so that should be some improvement over my cheap ugly stick lol

After reading through all the comments I believe my reply is a little late but Iíll throw it out there anyway. I was in the same boat cash wise. I knew that I didnít have a whole lot to work with so I did some research and spent a lot of time going hands on with a few different combos (combo was gonna be the best bang for my buck at the time). I settled on the Pfleuger Monarch combo from Dicks. Iíve had high priced setups before (curado, Lews, etc) and yeah, theyíre awesome. For $60, this combo is great. Iíve had absolutely no issues with it, rod has really really good sensitivity (IMO), reel seems to be plenty fast enough and smooth enough, and for the price I havenít used anything thatís felt or done this well.

I know itís late but maybe itíll help someone else in their adventure for a nice entry level or just cheaper option for a baitcast we combo
