    NO!

    THEY USED TO. a 33 is still ok for kids. 733 hawg. they dont have adjustable drag. you couldnt stick one of them up my behind.:wink:

    no, my opinoin is if I want to land fish and get that big one in when he comes then equiptment is key. i have a couple old antique zebcos for looks and a couple for my kid. i own abus. 10 to be exact.

    i had 1 to many zebco's hang up and fly apart casting. yet to see an abu or penn do that.

    Good quality for kids. Thats what my kids are learning on. Although,I have seen some decent fish landed on the 808 and 888. Me using one,hell no. I would have to be damn hungry first.

    I don't think they make anything that is any good any more. You used to be able to really depend on the Zebco 33 classic, but even it has went to H*&L

    Well they just like every thing else maid in CHINA so what can you expect ,I just bought two Abu's 7000ics PRo Rockets and they have plastic end caps and are made in CHINA it's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ and it SUCKS So I guess this is the age of the plastic
