Zebco Delta Spincast Reel
this is a very good product, it preforms well in all types of weather except winter conditions in northern minnesota but i dont think i will try that out either, loved the cajun line prespooled on there, very smooth but takes a bit of getting used to the slow butter smooth reeling and only one bad thing about it, once in a while the pickups will rub on the inside of the case not enough to do damage but enough to feel it and hear it on a calm day, but over all a very good buy

The 4-pickup spool is a good if basically useless idea, but causes more problems with the poor design. Can't take the face off without pushing the button. Kept noticing flat spots on line, lost 2 fish and plug before I figured out it was the pickups on the reel pinching the line. Having 4 added to the problem. trimmed them down and works some better, but still does not work as smooth as the new Bass Pro one. Can't find the receipt or I would take it back.

The smaller size of this is a really great niche product. I bought one for my 5 year old and one for my wife, who likes a spincast but also wants something lightweight. The drag feels nice, it casts and retrieves smoothly.
We've only fished it a few times now, so I'll update if durability proves to be lacking. But for a small spincast reel, its really lovely. I may even get another for a little light travel set up. Very handy little reel.

For a little stronger reel at a decent price, the delta fits the bill. The six pound line is perfect for panfish. One word of wisdom - keep the receipt. These reels do have issues with the handles falling off over time. If less than a year Zebco does have a good exchange policy.
