Zebco Delta Spincast Reel
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.

Great little reel
I bought the Zebco Delta with 6lb. test to bluegill fish with grand kids. This reel is very smooth, easy to cast and retrieve, and performs very well. I mounted it on a Bass Pro Power Plus 5' light action rod. What a nice combination! I'm well pleased with this set up.

Retrieve was not smooth near the end. Thougt there was too much line on spool but after removing some it did not help. Returned to Bass pro with no hassle and upgraded to the Z02 model...no problems.
