Oh yea. I bought one for my 11 year old grandson. And he uses it often. I also bought him the Bill Dance ultra light series. Loves and uses them both.

Good for Bay fishing with stronger line, I reline with 20lb test upon arrival. I would say it would be great for a average 12 year old. If he/she is small and never cast before, the number eleven Zebco reel would be better with a ultra-light rod just for learning. When I was a kid just learning. I practiced in the yard with a heavy dummy lure (no hooks) and this got me ready to be around others.

Best rod and reel I can think of for a 12 year old, great for beginners and adults alike. Should do well under bay fishing conditions.
