SOM - I bought that outfit as my first light gear and loved it. I've since built more specialized rods, but that rod still goes in the truck as either a small stream backup or a loaner.

Through a quirk of fate, I mounted a reel with 2wt line on it a couple years ago, and it handles that just fine.

I doubt you'll fish with it for years, but especially on sale, it's worth the money to me - even if only in the backup role.
