You can get an Alpha if you want but I wouldn't recommend it. The reel and drag may be smooth for a little while, but that will all change after a year of use. That combo was my 1st salt water combo, and it only lasted about 2-3 years using it VERY sparingly. It didn't break on me but it honestly just turned to shit. But at around $35 a combo, you get what you pay for.
Maybe you should look into an okuma combo or something. A lot of people don't like them but they are a million times better than $35-$50 combo's and just a little more money. I bought a combo that was on sale last year from dick's but they don't have it anymore but maybe you could find it online. 10' Penn Slammer rod w/ a Penn SG6000 for $100. I dropped this reel in the surf last year @ the Hook and sand got ALL inside & the reel bound up on me. Took it apart, cleaned it all out, lubed it up, and it's just like new still to this day. The drag is nice too. Just a quality reel for the money IMO
