Pretty sure Favorite's reels are just branded generic Doyo's.. the parts are interchangeable with some Kast King and other 'no name' reels from the same plant. 

That looks like a toy from the dollar store

Edit* got a little off topic here sorry guys. TCS rods are awesome! Everyone needs to try one.

Anybody that’s interested: The TCS Rods are now 25% off with the Bassmaster Classic sale! I think I’m gonna pick one up myself 😁

 

actually, all Okuma rods and I’m guessing reels too are 25% off? Does anybody know why this is? I think I read somewhere they separated from Savage Gear (didn’t even know they were together) would this have something to do with it?

What @BigBass'n_Harrison said.  I used the Frog/Swimbait rod last year for frogs, jigs, large worms, and even used it with S-Waver 168s and Shine Glides as I dabbled in swimbaits. For me, it handled all with aplomb. For me, the sensitivity was certainly adequate although I have no experience with more expensive rods. Would not hesitate to buy more TCS rods ... if I was willing to sleep on the couch!

I have 2 tcs Rods, one 7’3 heavy casting for frogs and swimbaits. I have the medium plus shakeyhead rod as well. I love them, they are good rods for how cheap they are. They’ve been $100 for awhile on amzn, and they are on clearance now on this HORRIBLE classic sale. Back to the rods, my spinning rod is amazing, works for drop shotting, Ned rigs, shakeys as well. Gonna throw dartheads and try them as well. My frog rod was amazing. Threw senkos, jigs, frogs, chatterbaits even but I after 2 months (I fish a lot, 3 or 4 days a week) the top insert on the guide just disappeared. So that’s the only issue I’ve caught fish on it after but it frays line so I’m retiring it. All in all good rods for the price

Just put a new tip on it and fish it. Very easy to do and cost less than $10. Lots of Youtube videos on how to do it.

True, I wanna get a good tip too. It would be a waste of a rod cause it did a good job for multiple purposes

Alconite tips are around $3 and can be found at most tackle stores.
