Interesting, but suspect quality control – Fish-Everywhere Pocket Pen Style Fishing Rod and Reel Kit - Silver (Extended Length 90CM) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Simple, compact and large novelty value for the ardent fisherman.
Cons:
Not the best quality control and the line is marginal and takes a set pretty quickly.
Other:
I got two of these as a bit of fun for myself and my normal fishing buddy. Mine was of a poor fit in the final section near the handle and allowed the handle to move rather alarmingly, to the point where I thought it would come out. The other one, however was just fine and was pressed into service once some slightly more identifiable line was wound onto it. The line capacity isn't much more than about 40 metres, so keep that in mind if you hook up Moby Dick.
Bottomline:
For some casual opportunity fishing, it will make an amusing distraction for someone with previous knowledge of fishing. It would not be appropriate to give children or a beginner. There is a bit of a requirement for foundation knowledge. If they were all excellent quality control, I'd recommend them unreservedly for the price they were.
