I feel that we all try to make sure, that we have the best of equipments, which make our hobbies easier to perform.

Some of them were using previous reels, while some mentioned that Stik was worth the total cost, and they could invest on another reel. I summed up the pros and cons to understand what the complains were all about, and realized the following:
Gives you value for money and high quality
Good for all sizes of fish, especially big ones
The weight of the rod pushes the enthusiasm
Perfect for long casts
Both artificial and fresh baits can be used
The reel doesn’t have anti-reverse on and off switch, which is why if you are used to this sort of functioning, this product could be apt for you. This limitation would keep your grip sturdy.
The size of the reel is small, compared to the pole, but that makes it lighter and easily manageable.
The product has been outfitted with four-bearing reel, features a machined aluminum spool and includes graphite for neat split grip. The combination of this rod and reel are perfect for both freshwaters and in-shore saltwater fisheries. These rods have great balance, being six to seven feet in length, and are in the apt power to catch bass, sea trout, catfish, etc. These have 3 variants – Spa-602-25, SPa-662-35 and SPa-702-35, and they only differ in line capacity, rod length and lure weight.

It was funny to see that some people liked the rod due to the lightweight, while there were some who complained that the weight made it feel fragile and got it prone to breakage.

It can snap if you try to catch big fishes. It has to be handled with care to reduce such occurrence.

The product mostly had good reviews, and the bad ones were due to some technical faults of the product they received, or due to lesser smoothness compared to their previous experiences.
Master Fishing Tackle RLP60/RHP8 Saltwater Lite Combo:
I cannot lie about the fact that this feminine looking pink fishing rod, attracted the girl in me, and price was around half of what I wanted to splurge. The rod seems to be sturdy and sensitive, which could let me catch big fishes. I not settling on buying this, but I’d rather gift it to my niece for her next birthday. This way we can both catch some catfishes with it!
The length of the rod is 8 feet and has two pieces
It is apt for medium-heavy action
Includes LED light which blink around the reel
There were just 5 reviews with a rating of 3.8 which literally favors the product. The customers liked the flashy lights, and to be honest, that appeals me too. It can make anybody fish at dawn! Somehow, I also feel that it isn’t something that would last pretty long.
Good quality with value for money
Safe to use
Designed for good grip and apt for beginners
Strong pole and good sensitivity

The flashes can scare the fishes away, so you need to tackle that aspect.
It might not last long, especially if not handled with care. The possibility of beginners spoiling or breaking a rod is more than someone who is skilled.
South Bend Worm Gear Fishing Rod and Spinning Reel Combo, Blue
I stopped at this product because I realized that this was another cool looking fishing rod, which could be gifted to kids. The combination of black and blue looked alluring, and they spoke of high quality too. Purchasing a less pricey fishing rod is apt to teach someone, or to carry for a distant trip. It looks to have an easy spinning facility with ball bearing reel.
It comes with a 64″ 2-piece spinning combo
The rod has fiberglass EVA handle along with 4 ceramic guides and the reel seat is of graphite.
The reel has ball bearing drive, graphite spool and body with line
With just 3 customer reviews with a rating of 4 out of 5, wasn’t convincing enough to rely on. 2 of them were good, while 1 complained of getting the line entangled at the very first experience. It is difficult to judge if that was something to do with the product or had they mishandled it.
Can be used by teens and ages above. Apt for teaching a beginner.
After going through all the products with their detailed information, I conclude that someone needs to know their priority while buying a fishing rod. If they already have a good rod, they should buy a good reel, or vice versa. If they want a product for beginners they’d need to get something less expensive so that you can risk having it broken. Venturing into a flexible yet sturdy product is a great challenge for anglers, but the professionals or skilled fishermen would surely know how to manage a tough rod.
How you can use the internet without the need to buy expensive Wifi repeaters. A quick guide to convert Raspberry PI into a WiFi repeater can do the trick. These computer-based chips are easily configurable with software. This will help you connect to any VPN server directly. The need of a VPN connection is to secure your server from phishing and hacking.
A Raspberry Pi WiFi repeater is quite compact in size and can be easily carried anywhere. Moreover, it is easily plugged in computers, laptops and similar devices for easy and sae surfing on the web. Other WiFi tools are also usable with it which is why it is a popular device.
Things you would need to convert Raspberry PI into a WIFI repeater:
For creating your very own repeater, you would require a Raspberry Pi, an SD card, a plug for power, and two WiFi USB dongles. Using two USB Wifi dongles will increase the output of the device – hence, making it into a repeater. It can take between 1 and 4 hours to complete the device for usage. Please do note that these steps are just a step by step guide to the basic procedure followed in the process. This is not the actual coding and editing required to setup a repeater.
Alright, now for the steps to make one:
Flashing the SD card:
For this, you require plugging in your SD card in a computer. For flashing you will then require a software to copy a Raspbian image file to the card. After you send the image file, you are ready to plug in the Raspberry Pi and the two WiFi dongle adapters with the SD card. Plug them all into your computer and move to the next step. Then proceed to the next step to change your Raspberry PI into a WiFi repeater.
Booting up your Raspberry Pi:
This requires you to enter the configuration window of your Raspberry Pi device. A first-time booting of the Pi will prompt you to a window known as raspi-config. Here you can edit all the basic attributes of the Pi, after which you can switch to the desktop layout. Change the time settings if needed. Enabling SSH settings is also required which will then let you have Pi access later on, even if you remove it from your computer. After exiting from there, it takes you to the login window where you can enter the username and password you setup in the raspi-config window.
Starting your internet connection:
Using Ethernet cables to connect to the internet using Pi is not that hard. All you need is to plug in the cable and the Pi autonomously connects to the internet. But, WiFi connection is not that easy. It requires a complex method. This will need you to edit the network settings on your system. You can create an open network or a WEP/WPA one for your WiFi depending upon your needs.
There will be times when you will need configuration file because of encrypted data. After this, you should restart your WiFi which should then be able to connect the Pi to the web. To check if the internet is connecting now, you can open up a page on the internet to test your connection.
Enabling an access point:
Your access point is vital to enable an internet connection over WiFi. This will use your PI for creating that access point. Furthermore, it will also serve as a spot where you add various IP addresses for allowing internet access to other devices in a secure manner.
Furthermore, you will need installation of DHCP server as well. This will protect expired IP addresses from connecting to your WiFi repeater and avoid slowing the output speed. After following the procedure you should be able to create a WiFi access with the help of your computer. You can then give it a password if needed.
Connecting the device to the VPN:
VPN will help you stay away from hackers in the internet world. Your device needs to stay safe as it is acting as a repeater where you can connect many devices to access the internet. And, you surely do not want all the connected IP addresses to get affected by the malware of the digital world. So, setting up a VPN connection is important. You can choose methods according to the OS you are using.
Setting up the repeater and connecting to WiFi:
This step will require you to setup the device as a router initially. After that, the configuration files have to be modified as per the process offered through a reliable method. Your Pi acts as the bridge between your internet connection and WiFi network – eventually offering you a magnified connection for connecting to multiple devices at the same time. Finally, your converted Raspberry PI into a WiFi repeater is ready to do its job.
