Spinning Rod

What is a good fishing rod for the first-time angler?

At the age of 28, I've decided to get my fishing license. What are some good no-hassle spinning rods? I've heard of different rods that like to tangle the line, or is it common for most spinning rods to tangle? Also, is there any literature out there with good tips about fishing?

Not as Cheap: http://www.basspro.com/Pflueger-Trion-GX-7-Spinning-Rod-and-Reel-Combos/product/100904/?cmCat=

Both of the above combos would work. As far as info on fishing for beginners: there is a boatload of info on how to start fishing and I would recommend Amazon.com and the web as good places to start...
Here is one book that I found: http://www.amazon.com/Basic-Fishing-A-Beginners-Guide/dp/1616082100/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357851699&sr=8-1&keywords=fishing+for+beginners and another http://www.amazon.com/Basic-Freshwater-Fishing-Step-By-Step-Know-How/dp/0811722260/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1357851699&sr=8-5&keywords=fishing+for+beginners Good luck and I hope you enjoy the sport!

NOTE: Under no circumstances would I ever recommend that you get a Zebco 33 and the cons of doing so are that 1 you cant cast as far 2 they are hard to maitain 3 they wear your line out 4 the drags suck unless you spend 60 bucks in which case you should get a decent spinning reel The fact is I would be insulted if I asked someone to recommend a "good spinning combo" and that is what they came up with. 1. It isnt even a spinning combo (its a spincasting combo which makes a big difference in terms of how well it works on the water) and number two, it isnt good ...I mean it will work but so will tying some cheap mono around a diet coke can if you know what you are doing. I still cannot understand being sentimental about spincasters because alot of people had them as kids....I had one too when I was six and I hated it so much that I trashed it in under a year. I bought a spinning reel as soon as I could scrape the money together and I have never even though about a spincaster since then (and if you bring one on my boat its going overboard-I will give you the 12 bucks you paid for it and you can use one of my backups.) Really and truly, they are complete garbage and if you are at all serious about fishing, care about not looking like a total noob, and want a trouble-free fishing experience for a long time please dont get a frickin Zebco 33 ...please, I implore you! And for all you Zebco fans out there...I would advise you to really take a step back and think hard about what you are doin' Basically you need to forget everything and start from scratch with your fishing because you are so messed up I dont even know if you can be helped at this point....
