I realize people might not be using these for catfishing but I keep a few zebco 33s for the kids to catch bluegill. 1 of the zebcos is going bad and came across these on YouTube somehow. Just wondering if getting one of these might be better then getting another zebco?

Never heard of those, but they look interesting. If you're a 33 fan, you might want t have a look at the Zebco Bullett.

I bought one from Walmart and it was junk right out the box. Had to get my trusty Zebco out for my boy to use.

I like the Kastking Brutus so far. Bought one for my wife's Shakespere Durango rod. She loves it so far.

Maybe I'll just stick to my zebcos. You guys ever put Lite pound test braid on your spincasters? I put some Lite spider wire on one a few years ago and the casting went to crap. I just don't like how much memory mono has. And the only thing I use mono on is the small zebcos I have. I'm wondering if power pro wound be different?

Is it just me or does anyone else totally dislike the funky bright colors and weird shapes designers are slapping on reels and all sorts of other TOOLS these days.
Make you wonder what they are trying to distract you from looking at? Like maybe the POS internals?

It's so the new generation will buy them...if they don't look "pretty" none of them would ever buy anything associated with work or sweating 😂😂😂

I kinda like all the bright colors. I'm even rebuilding a lot of my favorite rods with neon paints, wraps, and reel seats. My tired old eyes need all of the help I can get seeing my gear at night.

Took a girlfriend to get a rod and reel to go fishing with me. She got one that when she turn's the handle lights flash. May have to dump her!
