My uncle and I swear by the Zebco 33 it has very light maintance and very rarley does the line get tangled in the spool (if it does), it cast out nice and smooth if your using a light or heavy bait/tackle. The line it comes spooled with is a great all around line to catch anything from bluegill, rainbow trout to catching big catfish and walley.
Can't beat a Zebco 33 for all around fishing. Bass, Bream, Catfish, Crappie, or Trout..This rig will do it all....I highly recommend this rig for your fishing enjoyment. I can't believe the price either. I bought two and gave one to my father on Father's Day....
I love this product. I love to panfish and bass fish. This combo is perfect for both. Its good for any fish under 15 pounds really. I have never had trouble with this product and I have had it for several years.
I have owned and used this product for a lot of years and will not use anything else.
I have used a Zebco 33 for as long as I can recall and I'm 66 years old. Of the 14 reels I have, 10 are Zebco 33s. ....and use them for everything from bream to catfish. I'm now buying my grandson his third Zebco 33.....
The best price out there. The reel is worth double this price. The rod isn't the best quality but Heck- it is a 5'0 rod and it is included in this Great Deal. I bought three of these as gifts
I had a good experience at walmart buying this pole. This pole is longer than expected, but the girth is comfortable. I have handled it in a variety of messy situations, butt it always comes through. It looks like it could handle some rough casting, watch out sailor.
xcellent item/grrreat deal/built better than they use to be built 50 years+ ago if you could imagine/why mess with anything but a Zebco 33 when you really want to catch fish without problems/should be a best purchase you will make and wish you had purchased more for yourself along with ones you buy as gifts/real proven leader in fishing business after all these years/buy with confidence ,knowing you will be problem free!!
Broke within an hour of using it. Zebco obviously has changed over the years. The reel took a flop and I have never had an issue with older Zebco 33 reels.
This is probably the best spin cast combo on the market and for the price? ($20) you can't beat it. It's great for bass, pan fish, trout, catfish and carp. It can reel them all in! I just think that the older 33's were a little better but, the new one is here to stay!
Has not been used yet but I have one that is 3 years old and it performs well. I bought two of these at the same time for my 9 and 8 year old grandsons. Their hands are much smaller than an adults but they can easily use this product because they have used mine. My only concern is I ordered both at the same time and they came in two different colors which is not what I would have wanted nor did I ask for that.
i bought my zebco33 classic 23 years ago and now i'm buying one for my young son. i have NEVER had a problem with mine and am using it today. why try something different when this one is proven?! great for casual, lazy day fishing.
Great Rod and Reel combo, comes on a very nice Zebco Rod.
I have many very high end rod and reel combo's, but I have always loved fishing with the Zebco Spincast reels. Most guests on my boat can only use a Spincast, thus these do get used a lot.
A note, if you are going to use spinner type lures, I suggest that you add a a swivel between the line and the tackle you are using. Actualy all of my spincast reels have some sort of swivel on them, this keeps the fishing line from getting tangled in the reel.
Tight Lines All
I have always used a Zebco reel since I started fishing. This is a nice reel for a beginner or for those of us who have been fishing awhile. Just what I ordered.
the zebco 33 is my spincast reel of choice. They are very affordable, always easy to use and reliable. I bought one for my wife a couple years ago and when my two little girls are old enough for a bigger rod/reel combo it will be their first reel.
My son is 11yr and this is the perfect set up for a youngster just starting out in the fishing game. He loves how easy it is vs trying to use one of my old spinning rods.
The first time I tried using the product, I saw a small spring sticking out of the pickup housing. After 30 minutes of erratic casting results, like sudden lure stops, the line wrapped around the inside spindle. That ended my use of the reel.
I purchased 2 of these for a day of fishing with my boyfriend, one worked fine all day, the others' spool knotted up almost immediately. It was very frustrating trying to get the spool to let completely out so that I could re-wrap it. I realized the line was caught up UNDER the mechanism that the spool is attached to, impossible to let out. I gave up trying and put the thing down. Put a damper on our trip because now, we had to share one pole. Didn't quite work because we both hated to give up the pole!!! Anywho, I'd probably still purchase this pole again, perhaps I just bought a dud.
Just a head's up: You will get a random color. Mine was purple... I never got around to returning it... I'll have to check the return policy and see if still can, but it's a hassle.
Good luck to you!
it came with wire tangled and it took a long time to fix it by myself.
