I missed out on the thanksgiving coupon but for black friday there was a sale for inexpensive gear:

Mako Calypso 7' Saltwater combo
$29.99 - $20 rebate = $9.99 after rebate

South Bend Cimarron Freshwater spinning combo
$24.99 - $20 rebate = $4.99 after rebate

Were these good deals? I only bought the Calypso.

I have one of those Mako reels-- its a loaner for friends and its only been out a couple of times. One thing I noticed was that the metal drag disks had some rust. You might want to keep an eye on that. Other than than, no problems.

remember to send in the rebate, that's what a lot of people forget to do...i've had some good reviews about it...they are decent rods for beginners and good rods that you can beat on without feeling bad...i like the cimarron though, it seems good for a nice fun fight against some mean perch...hope you enjoy your rod...just curious, which sportmart did you purchase them from?

Bought it at West Covina, CA and the racks were still full when i got there at 10am. Hope it holds up, even if it doesn't it was cheap anyways! I always send in rebates. I liked the reel on the cimarron but the rod was extremely small. I'm looking forward to night fishing for rays and small sharks so the Mako definately will see some action. Smile
