    Should be good enough to have fun. Tbh a fly reel doesn’t do much more than hold line and provide a little drag. The rod is much more important.

    Not very good but it still has potential to get you addicted

    As a first kit it’ll definitely work. I had the same rod kit, but a 30-year+ old version that my grandma bought and never opened. I caught several fish for over 2 years on it and even won a fly fishing race with it. Like others have said, focus on your casting.

    Eventually you can upgrade in so many ways, but the Redington Path combo is also fairly cheap and has a much better rod. For now have fun with it!

    Probably not great for casting anything heavy…
    Just something to hook you into buying 50k in materials, 6 other rods. ,mooching reels, and 3 vises..
    Beware of the addiction…

    Personally I’d get one of the Chinese ones on Amazon for < $100. You get more for the price and most of them look pretty decent.
