Best Product Ever I own 5 Zebco Pro Staff 888's and plan on buying a couple more. I reccomend to not use line heavier then 20lbs. For best performance use 15-17 lb line. June 21, 2012
Best Spincast for cat and carp! I've owned this reel for a year now and it's still going strong after catching dozens of 20+ lb cats and carp. This reel was made for them. The bait clicker and the simplicity in design is the selling point for me. The 888 will cast a mile using a 1oz egg sinker. I've zero problems using this reel and I use and abuse 2 of them. The only gripe I have is that the back cover is abs plastic. I wish Zebco would make a "Platinum" version of this reel.(with bait alert!) Who needs a 100.00 baitcaster when this reel is just as good if not better. If ya think about it, this is a simplified version of a baitcaster. No birds nests... no hang ups... no problems. 5/5 October 23, 2013
great reel I have owned a Pro Staff for over ten years and love it. I bass fish and usually have four poles in the boat. It probably is my favorite. Easy to use, no think, just cast and enjoy. I am considering a second one, but I have so many others now. Definitely would recommend and I would definitely purchase again. June 30, 2007
Wonderful Reel I have always prefered closed face reels,and the 888 is by far the best ! I use it for stripers and bluefish and it works great!!! July 9, 2007

No, this reel is freshwater. I don't think they have a saltwater version of the 888.

I use mine in salt water, The spools did start to corrode after a while, but you can replace them with stainless spools from Zebco.

A: 
I can't answer this question because the 808sw is designated for sw and the 888 is not, I think as long as you clean it up after use it shouldn't matter.

A: 
It is not rated for saltwater. Stay with a reel with the SW rating. The power and line capacity of the 808 and the 888 are almost identical anyway.

A: 
the 888 is a great salt water reel but find the older version with the star drag system on the handle.

the knob drag system on the new 888 is the same junky one used for the 808 and it cant handle big fish.

also the 888 has a better gear ratio then the 808's
