Is there such a thing? Looking to get my 6 yr old Grandson his 1st set-up for a 1/2 day summer trip. So far I have a Penn Rival 15LW. Plan to have him tuna fishing in no time :)
Thanks, Mick

Rival should be fine on the half day, just gonna drop straight down anyway right? Fairly light setup for what it is. Decent combo for the price. And if he drops it over the rail, won’t hurt your pocketbook too much.
If u want spinning setup <$50 - i would go for Daiwa D wave, Abu Garcia Bruiser, Penn pursuit(about $70), or something similar

    Have sold many "economy" rods throughout the years. 2 words....UGLY STICK. Hard to beat..... hard to break.... not that expensive. Pretty durable. One they Would be willing to use....later in their fishing career...lol. Great guarantee. Good luck. Hope you guys have a blast!!

    I Have gotten some good Allstar rods on BD.
    I think they gave me good deals. $30 or $40 bucks.
    Gave one away with a Penn 500 in new condition that I paid $20 bucks from a cool member from here to my cousin. The other I fished recently with my first salt reel from the late 80's. PENN 505hs. I would see what BD has local to you as you can see the free offers from some coolheads here. 👍 ✌️
