  • Affordable Beginner Reel With Lots of Options

    Aug 15, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of options, sturdy
    Cons: Somewhat heavy, rusts, snags over 15lbs

    Summary: I bought this reel about 2 years back and I had to replace it a month ago. For the price, you can't ... read more

  • Zebco 33 combo from Walmart - poor quality

    Pros: Cheap price - (you get what you pay for though)
    Cons: Poor construction, poor reliability

    Summary: Until Zebco’s quality improves, I’m done buying your cheap poorly constructed products. Recently, I bought a Zebco 33 combo from Walmart for $19.  On the first fishing trip about every 10 to 12 casts I was losing my lures.  ... read more

    Pros: Affordable price.
    Cons: It lasts 8-10 casts before it breaks.

    Summary: I bought a 33 from Walmart today.  After about 20 minutes, the whole thing locked up on me and I couldn't reel at all.  I returned it to Walmart and they exchanged it for me no problem.  When I got home, I cast about 8 times before the ... read more

    Pros: It's a great reel until it breaks.
    Cons: It will eventually break for no reason at all. 

    Summary: I'm tired of buying new one's.  Eventually the line gets tangled up on top of the spool of line.  I don't know how it does it, and I have been fishing for 30 years.  I remove the top cover, I see line wraped around the center shaft on top ... read more

    Pros: simple operation. light weight.
    Cons: poor reliability

    Summary: The first reel that was my own, was a zebco 33 I bought when I was 8 years old. After hundreds of carp up to 8 lbs, dozens and dozens of smallmouth and largemouth bass, that 33 finally died when I was 20. Goodbye old friend. So naturally, I replaced ... read more

    Pros: Simple, inexpensive, built well, bait clicker
    Cons: Have not found a single 'con.'

    Summary: The first fishing pole I bought myself (after I got serious about fishing) was a little ultralight deal with a spinning reel. I used it for a number of years, and it was alright. Except that the line tangled after every other cast. One day I got ... read more

  • Zebco still a mainstay

    Pros: Simple and reliable.
    Cons: None I could see.

    Summary: In 2003 I bought a more expensive reel for my rod, it was not an off-brand but a more well-known brand. After 3 months of using plain mono it started sticking when I cast. So I switched to a premium Spider Wire which was extra slippery. Same thing ... read more
