It's been almost fifty years since Zebco first introduced the original 33-series Spincast reel. Often dubbed ''America's favorite reel,'' the 33 features a precision-machined metal body, ball-bearing drive system and selective anti-reverse.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Austinu good for perch jerking
This reel is excellent for perch jerking around the camp or in canals. It is also good for young children just starting out.

These reels are perfect for everyone and even pros. Those who are not happy with the 33 are the ones using braided line and line heavier than 8 pound test. You have to put light line on these reels people!!! 4 pound test will cast a mile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kennybob Excellent choice for the money
Zebco 33 reels have been a part of my fishing experience for the last 35 years. You can't beat the reel for durability, price and reliabilty. I will always keep Zebco 33 reels as part of my Crappie fishing tackle.

Great reel at a great price. I have used Zebco 33 reels for 35 years and they have always received great service. Best pond fishing reel made.

If you use anything other than light mono on these reels or any other spin-cast reel, you are looking for trouble. 4-8 pound test mono max. You can do anything with these that you can do with conventional reels plus some.
