Has anyone tried any of the Jarvis Walker rods or reels. I was thinking about buying a surf combo and the price didn't seem that bad. Any suggestion?

I have the JW 2000 reel. It's about the size of a Penn 4400. It's worked great for schoolie sized stripers on light line. I picked it up on eBay for $15. Havent' really tested the drag too much but it is smooth and casts nice.
