    It's a great combo. I use some lightnening rods for some of the fishing I do, and have no complaints, they're good rods. If you purchased them seperately at Wal Mart, it would have cost you around 90.00! It's a good deal

    The ones I have seen there lately don't have clickers which kept me from getting one

    I use the same combo, except I have a 7' berkley lightning. So far it works great I've caught several cats with it, nothing big yet. Biggest 10#.

    The Abu 6000 and lightning rod is a great combo for the price.
