    I bought one for my son and so far it work's great he's caught alot of fish with that reel ..Once you find the right setting for the alarm and the proper drag you want they work great.

    I have looked at them, but I am convinced that in hard current or while drifting you would not be able to adjust the alarm so much that the alarm would function properly

    I've got a spincast version of the Zebco Hawg Seeker in my collection. I've gotten into some decent sized fish with it and it seems to hold up really well. My father in law got one and I thought it was cool so he ordered me one last year for my b-day. I still haven't had to replace the batteries. It's really good for those quiet nights by the river when I fall asleep in my chair. Damn thing's LOUD!! But it's helped me land fish, so I ain't complainin'.

    The Ol' Lady just got me the Hawg Seeker open face spinning outfit for my B-Day. Have'nt been able to put it to the test yet. The med. heavy rod seems nice and stout. I wish they would've made the switch so you could set it as light n sound or just the light. Might have to do a lil' surgery on it.

    I like the idea of the bell system and do use the bells when I fish at night. I tend to stay on the low tech side of the fishing world. It is just too easy to get caught up in all the stuff that is marketed.

    With as much high tech gadgets kids are exposed to nowadays it certainly dont hurt to throw some high tech in to keep the lilluns interested and carry on the tradition. Who knows what they will be using to fish with in 10 -20 years.
