Unfortunately, no substitution can be allowed. Our Rod/Reel combos are specially priced. Part of the reason for this is that the merchandise matched together on these combos has been carefully chosen to be the best and most appealing buy to the greatest number of people. Because of the large number of people who choose combos, we are able to purchase large enough quantities to allow us to receive an additional price break from the manufacturer. These savings in turn are passed along to our customers in the form of lower prices for these pre-configured combination packages.
