I did this review on the Synch rod. https://www.theflyfishingforum.com/forums/index.php?threads/cabelas-synch-review.592431/The Cabela's Pristege Fly Outfit
The Cabela's Sync Fly Outfit
Yea, the line would get replaced immediately, thanks for the tips on the lines.My brother purchased a Cabela's outfit when he retired because I had been asking him for years to fly fish with me but he was not sure he would like it. As it turns out he likes it very much. His Cabela's rod and the reel are serviceable but they, and I would assume any prepackaged outfits, put the cheapest fly line know to man on them. I think his had the Bass Pro Hobbs Creek $20.00 fly line on it. We replaced it just today with an old Rio Gold I had.
The fly line is as important as the rod and more important than the reel. Not knowing your budget but knowing how important a serviceable rod and line are I would recommend you purchase it from a fly shop and let them try and get to your budget. Redington, and Echo both have good entry level rods. If you must order it I think most rods made today will work with a good line, say a Cortland 333 or RIO or Scientific angler midpriced lines at a minimum, then get a reel with what money you have left. Echo makes a good reel for the money reel call is "Base", although it is heavy.
________________________IF, you really want to go down the fly fishing road, and I'm the last person to push it, I'd go to as many of the "free intro to fly fishing" classes as you can, most shops in my area do it almost weekly this time of year. If nothing else it'd give you an opportunity to cast a whole host of rods, ranging from those well within your budget to those that may stretch to beyond what you want to spend.
