    A good all-purpose reel!
    These Zebco 33's aren't made as good as the old ones, but this is still a considerably good reel. Take the old line off, and spool it with 12 lb. Stren. It will then cast like a dream. Remember to also grease and oil your reels every fishing season to make your reel smooth and last longer. This reel is very durable to say the least, and it will handle your every day catfish and bass. I have it riding on a 6' medium/heavy action rod, and it works like a charm. A medium action rod would be better, but I prefer the stiffness of a medium/heavy for larger catfish and carp. But I have still not landed a nice sized fish with this reel! It's my bad luck reel! But I have caught numerous 9-12" catfish, a bass or two, and some big bluegills. It reeled those fish in easy. I'm sure this reel will handle some BIG fish. The line capacity is pretty big but 10 or 12 lb. mono will be the best casting wise. Make sure to use high quality line or the line will get jammed up by all the kinks in it. This reel also doesn't cast smaller stuff too well either, but any lure/weight over 1/4 oz. will do fine. I use mine for carp and cat fishing and use a big split shot, a hook, and a piece of dough ball. It casts a long way with this rig. But if you have been looking at this reel for a while, and have been wanting it, get it! You will not be sorry!

    Zebco still a mainstay
    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 happened after 3 fishing outings. I got a replacement reel face for the reel, which contained a rubber disk on it. I thought this rubber disk was catching on the line. That didn't fix the problem either. So I bought a reliable Zebco 33. I have not had a problem since. I like it and am just glad it works.
