The affordably-priced Zebco® 404® Spincast Rod and Reel Combo is an outstanding set-up perfect for medium-heavy freshwater fishing. This well-matched combo combines Zebco’s popular 404 Spincast Reel with a Z-Glass, two-piece rod outfitted with ceramic guides and an EVA handle. The 404 spincast reel features tough ABS housing, chrome plated cover, stainless steel pickup pins, Built-in Hook Keeper™, dual paddle steel crank handle and a star-adjustable drag system. Ready right from the box, the reel is pre-spooled with 75 yards of 15 lb. line.
Excellent Starter Rod & Reel
I bourght 2 of these when my 7 year old was ready to go fishing. They work great fro bank fishing.
We fish every week and never have a problem. They cast easily and handle 10 lb catfish and bass with no trouble.
This not for a serious angler, but perfect for starter equipment and family outings. Worth every penny!!

liked the 202 better
I bought the 202 for my son and got the 404 for me thinking it would be tougher. The first time out, the line got completely jammed in the reel so I sat for 1/2 hr taking off the cover and respooling while my son had no problems with his 202. I returned it and got another hooping it was a fluke. The problem hasn't happened again yet, but the action doens't seem as smooth as the 202. Looks like sometimes less is more...

I Actually Like The 202 Better
I loved the Zebco 202 and I wanted to get this to see if it was even better, I was wrong.
It brought in bigger fish easier than the 202, I didn't have to fight the pole.
But it's durability is terrible, I dropped it once and the reel broke and it's parts went into the lake. I dropped me 202 countless times without problem.
I didn't really like it, I recommend a 202 or a 33.
