Looking for a convenient set of entry-level fishing kit? Sure, you can go ahead and pick out every single item of equipment you'll need separately - many do. But what if there was an easier way?
Thanks to Daiwa's mini system minispin combo of the ultralight rod and reel, there is! This reel and rod combo is just about ready to go right out of the box, and it's an affordable choice that comes with the kind of assurance you get from buying any Daiwa product.
The rod is a five-piece design that comes in at a final length of four and a half feet. Built out of trusty carbon-fiber, its very lightweight and easily collapsed so it is the perfect size for travel. The rod itself is lightweight, meaning it has a modest amount of power when in use.
The reel is buttery smooth. Featuring a multi-disc drag system and an excellent 4.9:1 retrieve ratio, it feels like a premium product that was mistakenly priced lower than it should have been!
This is the perfect travel rod. It folds up small enough to fit in a duffle bag, backpack or saddle bag on a motorcycle. The five-piece ultralight rod is designed to handle most freshwater fish so even if you end up with a giant on your line you will be able to get it to shore. The ultra-compact hard case protects the rod and reel as you travel so you will not end up standing on the bank with a broken rod and a ruined fishing trip. The box also has tackle compartments so this is a great option for throwing in the back of your car or truck. You can hit every river lake and stream you come across without having to go home and get your fishing gear.
The Daiwa mini system minispin is also perfect for international travel. the ultra-compact hard case with built-in tackle compartments means you can bring enough gear to have a good time without risking the loss of that £300 reel or pole. The set also comes with the ultralight MS-S500T reel. This is a simple lightweight spinning reel. It has all the features you need like ball bearing drive and multi-disk drag in a compact package. It is the perfect size to throw in a carry on when you are travelling abroad.
Our opinion: The Minispin combo is a great budget choice. For a mere £30 give or take you can equip yourself with just about everything you need to get started fishing lighter species. What's not to love about that? It even comes with a hard carry case!
