Zebco Delta Spincast Reel
It'll Earn It's Keep
I looked at the Omega, but couldn't justify the price tag. So I decided to try this one instead. I've used Zebco Spincasters off and on throughout the years and have honestly never had any of the problems reviewers here are talking about. Of course I've always respooled each reel (no matter what brand/type) out of the box before first fishing and then shoot some dry land practice casts to ensure everything is working properly.
Before buying this I owned a Platnium 33 that was excellent and in many ways out-fished my other reels. The bottom line is that Zebco, and spincasters, get a bad reputation but in all honesty can run with any baitcaster/spinning reel on the market.
This reel is a good choice for a second or primary combo, that feels very solid (you'll enjoy the reeling action), and its well made. There have been many days where I took this reel (on a Rhino rod) and nothing else.
Finally for those who are having trouble with casts, for what reason I'm not sure, respool with SpiderWire Flurocarbon .... talk about distance .. I cast so far at times I'm actually scared to hook anything.

Great reel for the money. I have 4 of these reels now for crapping fishing the are great. I very much like to use a closed face reel, they are so much easer to use.

Zebco's getting better
First rate spincaster reel. Handles those smaller lures that are tough to pitch with a baitcaster. Good product!
