Best Spinning Combo For the Money

Recommended Posts

With Fathers day right around the corner im looking to get my dad a nice spinning combo since fishing is one of the things that truly make him happy. Im looking to get him something really nice and was wondering if anybody had any recommendations of any combo's that they've personally had success with. I've heard that some of the bass pro combo's are very nice however all recommendations are extremely welcome. Thank you everybody for your time and guidance my friends!

Thank you for the response however im looking to buy a combo specifically. Im aware that overall buying separately is generally better. However I would only be interested in buying a combo at this time. Thank you for your responses.

St Croix has a Triumph paired with a Diawa reel for around a 100 bucks.

I don't like recommending  combos as today they are directed at entry level anglers so you either get a decent rod and lower end reel or decent reel and low end rod. You can actually get a good rod and good reel for less that some combos that offer only 1 decent piece of tackle but if it has to be a comb then here you go.  Cabelas has a Pflueger Purist reel paired with a Cabela's Fish Eagle 50 spinning rod on sale for $130, the Fish Eagle 50 rods are decent and the Purist is a lower end reel but not bad in the Pflueger line. A better combo at the same place would be the Cabelas Verano reel paired with a Tournament ZX rod, on sale for $220 and if both of those options are too much then the Pflueger Summit rre with the Fenwick Silver Hawk rod for $120. That makes your shopping for dad easy.

If it were I, I would pick up a Pflueger combo starting at the President level, with a Pflueger rod in the same class, medium action and  6 1/2 feet. Depending on budget, maybe further up the Pflueger scale, but my President has served me well, so I would feel fine giving one as a gift

Lots of combos you can look at at a Bass Pro,
Cabelas, Gander Mountain, etc.

Best thing is to get your hands on a rod/reel
combo in a store to see how it feels in YOUR
hands, not ours.

We've got a ton of opinions here at BR. Some
love brand X while some hate it, and so on.

Since I have a BPS locally, I know they have 
deals on house rods with different reels, not
necessarily house brand. So you can ask at
the counter what reels can you offer as a 
combo with *this* rod and they'll tel you.

Then put those reels on the rod you like and
see how it balances out. That's very important.

Your hands are not our hands, so you may not
love what I do, and so on.

Good luck.

If you can afford a couple hundred, I wouldn't buy a premade combo. Get a Pfluegar President, then you have 130 give or take to play with and get a nice rod. 

FWIW, I have a few Pfluegar President/Ethos combos that run around $120 if you pay full price for both that are nice, inexpensive spinning setups.
