I am 63 and have had Zebcos all of my life (33s, 606, and bait casters. I have 18 rods and reels plus my 6 fly rods, Aba, Quantum,Shimano,and Diawa. They all have falts and quirks.I have read the reviews and agree with the review that advises to take the reel apart and know how it works. If a reel needs cleaned and greased it won't work, play with it before you go to the water. Remember these reels may have been in the box for a good dea of time.
The 33 will work on most of the water i fish on, Lake Erie to farm ponds to creeks.

I bought this reel for my wife to use to fish for walleye on a trip to Canada. Little did I know she would use it to land to pike of over forty inches each the first two days we were there. The reel performed beyond expectations landing to pretty large fish that were both in the twenty pound range. The drag system worked to perfection. She caught a large number of walleye over a three day period as well. It was the perfect reel for someone with limited fishing experience who needs a reel that is both easy to use and reliable. I may take it when I go back up again and use it on one of my rods. I can't speak to the durability of the reel since this was the first trip we used it on but for now it rates pretty high on my list.

This reel has performed very well for me, as have all my Zebco reels. The Zebco 33 Platinum is about 2 years old and my standard Zebco 33's are 8-9 years old. When people say they don't make them like they used to, I'm not sure if they really know how they used to make them or are just romanticizing the past. I jut caught a 10 lb carp on my Platinum and had no problems. Simply open one up and you'll see the metal gears. They're pretty simple and hence very reliable. Buy a Zebco 33 with confidence but at the same time make sure you know how the reel works, how to clean, grease, and oil it, and you'll have a friend for life.
