    BOWFISHING PRECAUTIONS:
    WARNING: Improper use of this reel can result in serious injury or death.
    We recommend that you use a cable or slide system when attaching the line to the arrow. The most hazardous snap-back can occur when fishing line is tied to the tail of an arrow. Snap-back is a condition that can happen when, as the bowstring is released, a trailing loop of line can tangle with the bowstring, cabling, arrow rest, or other items which can result in serious injury or death. Minimize the amount of slack in your line before shooting an arrow. Greater slack in the line increases chance of snap-back of an arrow.
    We recommend that you use only 80 lb. MULTIFILAMENT lines with this reel.
    ALWAYS press button on reel to release the line pick-up pins before shooting.
    ALWAYS check to see that line is not tangled.
    ALWAYS check line for cuts or wear. If the line breaks, you cannot control the path of the arrow.
    ALWAYS wet line before firing first shot.
    ALWAYS wear eye protection.
    DO NOT aim at other people, and keep arrows away from children
    We strongly recommend that you take a bowfishing safety course before going bowfishing. For more information, see:
    Bowfishing Association of America, Intíl Bowhunter Education Program, National Bowhunter Education Foundation or your local archery shop with bowfishing expertise

    The ZEBCO 888 and 808 sold now are made in CHINA. Go on EBAY and bid on USA made reels. Bought about 25 USA 888 & 808s some new in the box. Nothing like em. I have one chinese 888 and its nothing but trouble.

    New Penns are made in China. USA made Penn 710 is another bulletproof reel with steel gears. Bought about 10 of those on EBAY. Now I have a lifetime supply.:wink:

    Used to be Zebco Pro Staff was top of the spincast lineup. Had metal gears and a easy to use star drag. The hawg wasnt quite as nice. 2nd prostaff i bought gears were junk. I really put reels to the test (ever fought a roadsign to stand still in fast water) and they just dont pass the 7 foot waterlog stick test. lol
