    I haven't tried one but I like the looks of the spinning setup. I do believe I'm gonna get me one.

    Welcome to the BOC, I have never used them but played around with them in the store, they seem to have a sensitive tip, and that bite alert is pretty neat stuff. Zebco is old school can't go wrong with them.

    I bought my son one of these pole's and they are GREAT for the price and the alarm on the reel is LOUD I belive the pole's are the rhino indestrucible pole's? Anyway it is a nice set up for 36 dollar's :wink:

    My buddy Kevin has one and has landed some decent fish with his.....several out of my boat that I have whitnessed first hand -10-15 lb range we disected his the gears were all metal.... .witch impressed us both cause I have 2 smoked zebco reels that are about identical(MINUS THE ALARM) that have plastic gears......the alarm works well & .....I think there good for the money from what I have seen. Kevin is more of a fanatic bout fishing then me and fishes more so....yup there allright if you use spinns.:cool2:...we will see after this summer though if he moves closer:wink: He ties into a Wallcat in heavey current.....:wink:

    My wfe got me one for christmas it is real smooth casting and reeling it in the alarm is just the right tone to hear and the light is bright but I still ain't tested it on a big Hawg

    YEP! Got one last year for the wife, as it was what she wanted, Spinning set, the alarm is just fine and the light is bright and over all, I was/am impressed with it, biggest thing brought in on it was a 4-5 gar in the river, and it was a screaming fight for better part of 30 minutes, has a nice back bone and a sensitive tip, for the money I think it is well worth it......I did use it one day musky fishing nothing giant but caught several 20-30 inch fish and they were all handle well on it.

    i've messed with them at wal-mart and can honestly say that i'd trust one if it was all i had to work with. zebco is pretty good quality for the price. while most of my buddies use penns and garcia's (including myself) another buddy got two 30# plus fish on a simple zebco spinning rig this year. I guess it's all in how you use what you got.
