At Academy today I snagged one of these Lew's American Hero combos I been hearing about. My first impressions are good. Smooth and casts really far with 14lb Cajun and 1/4oz weight. Drag seems very strong and backlash setup easy and works better than any of my Abu reels. The MH fast action rod seems very well made with 10 stainless eyelets. The best part is part of the $79.99 is costs goes to the veterans program American Heros. Can't wait to feel a big old blue cat on the other end.
This combo rig might be worth looking at for a rig that don't break the bank.
From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
