Zebco Bill Dance Select Triggerspin Rod and Reel Spincast Combo
this could be better
I just bought this rod and reel combo at the Independence store. I do shop there alot and have bought a lot of great equipment. The flaw behind this set is that where the trigger meets the ingament pin it will slide to the side and not ingage the spool and get stuck depending on what side it goes to. I blame this flaw on poor QA. Had this rod been properly checked out by me in the store I would have pointed this out to a sales associate. But i was in a hurry and just grabbed one and went on. I will get this rod again when I go back to the store but this time i will be casting it in the store and giving it a full look over before leaving.

my Bill Dance rod&reel arrived by USPS and the package was in perfect condition but the rod had bent and twisted eyes on the upper piece of the two rod. after i straightened them as best i could. it works as well as any new rod and reel can after it has been in a train wreck. i thought about sending it back but it is too much trouble. i have had similar Zebco reels in the past and i love them. they work extremely well and with proper drag adjustment you can land a one and one-half pound + largemouth. i would buy this again (and may soon) and would highly recommend the unit to my friends--or anyone who loves to fish. however, if i buy another one, and it is damaged, i will send it back!

Zebco Bill Dance Crappie Rod and Reel Trigger Spi
Just used my Zebco Bill Dance Crappie Rod and Reel Trigger Spin, it works great had no problems. I went fishing in an in city lake in Nebraska-Lincoln. I hand carried it on the plane flight from Tucson – Arizona to Nebraska-Lincoln and back. It held up to just find, it’s very lite and responses with sensitive and yes I ended up catching most of the crappies (seven) and one cat fish on shore and we only fish for three hour. I use worms with 1/32-oz. barrel weight sinkers Octopus Circle in red 5/0 in a Carolina Rig.

Tears up the Trout
I recently purchased this pole for freshwater trout fishing. I live in central Pennsylvania and so far every stream i have used the pole in whether it was large, small, narrow, wide, deep, or shallow the performance was amazing. The casting distance was excellent. I was throwing my line 20 feet farther then everyone else and that was the difference between catching fish and not catching fish. The real it self is very smooth. The pool is a very light style so a slight bite is easily visible. The line that came in the pole has yet to break and i have caught to rainbow trout over 1 lb 17 inches. The under cast of the reel makes for an easy transition from an open gave real to this pole. The only problem i did have was the amount of line that comes in the pole was not sufficient but that is an easy fix. *Do Not ship the pole parcel post . I paid for 5-8 days shipping using parcel post and did not receive it until the 18th day. And when i called the USPS to check they had zero answers for me. Other then that excellent service and qualtiy.
