The Shakespeare EZ Baitcasting Combo is a high-quality, easy-to-use, and affordable piece of fishing equipment. The reel is designed with an anti-backlash system which automatically controls the spool, allowing for tangle-free casting. An on/off feature lets you turn off the anti-backlash system, so you can cast like a standard low-profile baitcasting reel. The three-ball bearing system also features a one-way clutch with instant anti-reverse. The rod is made of composite graphite with a cork handle and stainless steel guides. The combo comes pre-spooled with 10-lb. line, so you're ready to hit the water right away.
