This is one solid and well designed fishing kit. The reel is great with a smooth motion and it attaches to the rod quickly and easily. I would definitely buy it again.
This reel is very nicely made and performs as well as other more expensive (much more in some cases) reels in similar classes. I've used pairs of this reel in 5/6 and 3/4 weights and its performed flawlessly. The drag is smooth and consistent and the spool moves fluidly after considerable use. The only negative is that the clicker can't be switched off. The only reason I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars is because W-M doesn't offer spare spools (what's the deal W-M?). That said, you can buy another reel for the price of a spare spool of a comparable, more expensive reel. Recommended.
I bought 2 of these for my 5&6 year old daughters although we don't ice fish they wanted to be like dad and have a spinning reel so why not get them a short version for bluegills and crappie
