I enjoy using the trigger button type reels. it is not as good as the platinum 33 but it is still a good reel.

These were purchased as gifts but I own several of my own. Excellent crappie reels even though occasionally I find one with a short pickup pin.

My buddy had a couple and I like his so I bought 2 reels for myself. The work really good for us catching slab crappie. I like then better than the small spincast reels. This is the only reel I will buy from now on for crappie fishing

I caught hundreds of largemouth bass (known bigger than probably three pounds) on a zebco 11 trigger real last year. I bought a 33 to use this year for small bass and crappie. Their drag sometimes hangs wqith very large bass.
one should use high test strong line for catfish because they often weigh more than twenty poundsThis line is not compatable with an underpin reel .Duch a reel can usually handle the4-8 lb. line that is typically used for smal;mouth bass.
Depending if it is left-handed or right-handed, loosen the through bolt on the opposite side of the handle with fingers or screwdriver. Turn bolt head a few turns counter-clockwise and that will allow room for the handle to pivot outward and downward to align in proper position. Remember to retighten the bolt head.
