Excellent for my 6-year old son – New Pocket Pen Style Fishing Rod and Reel Kit - Silver (1-Meter Extended) Reviews

Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Very portable, fun and good looking (although it is dwarf-sizes so it might make your friends laugh :-). The build isn't of a very good quality but for the price it is very reasonable. Excellent for the first fishing rod for your child.
Cons:
The handle is made of a very thin aluminium, so it can bend if you hit it or step on it. I am considering to replace the line with a better one bacause this one tangles easily.
Other:
Cool and weird product!
Bottomline:
My son is absolutely in love with this rod, he cannot get enough of it. I ordered this one because it is a bit longer than others (100 cm vs. 90 cm), although this one seems to be less popular (this is its 1st review on DX). Along with it I ordered a few baits (SKU 31917 and 31918), my son quickly caught a squid with it!
