Not the bestReel seems decent just the line sucks way to much memory. Probably gonna have to strip line out and put new on, to really test out reel.

Do not buy! Very disappointedI bought this real for my kids to saltwater fish with. It hold up to saltwater fine, but it doesn't cast well, even with smaller line. If you reel it in with any, and I mean any, slack in the line, the next cast will be messed up. This is a common occurrence fishing in coastal wind. I actually bought two of these and through one away after two trips because the anti-reverse stopped working. I have an old Zebco 404 reel that is 100% better. This is an Zebco utter failure and does not live up to the classic Zebco reel. If you like Zebco for kids and other non-experienced fishermen and women, I would suggest a different reel. I plan on buying the 404 and just throwing them away if the saltwater eats them up. You can buy two of them for the price of this reel. Very disappointed.

Zebco 33...Every Zebco 33 I have purchased in the past 5 years have under performed and are unusable after about 2-3 months. Drag always fails, excessive noise, and very unreliable.

Zebco 33 max reel is the best buy ever!I just bought this reel last week I bass and catfish and while bass fishing I hooked and landed a 7lb channel cat and it did awesome the drag system is amazing and the 20lb line it comes with is really strong, i had the drag fully locked once I saw the fish and it did amazing reeling it in, the channel cat fought really hard the 33 max did it's job so if u fish for big fish this is a must have reel for u!!

Great for kidsOne of the few trigger cast reels i could find. Great for getting my kids to start on spinning setups compared to the retreive on spincast reels. Came prespooled with 4lb cajun red.

Great purchaseI normally buy the Zebco 733 Hawg but since they stop selling them the Zebco 33 Max is a great buy.
Will this reel work with braided line? I’d like to use 20lb. Braid when bass fishing.
Asked by: Fred61
Thank you for choosing Bass Pro Shops. It is possible to use braided line on these reels however it is recommended for use with mono line in the appropriate pound test to get the maximum performance from these reels.

The BPS description specifies saltwater for the Max 33, but a year ago the saltwater question was asked and the reply was "no" followed by "rinsing the equipment with fresh water". Please clarify saltwater use. Thanks a bunch......
Asked by: JMH6
Thank you for your inquiry. Per manufacturer, this reel is not rated for saltwater and does not have any saltwater protection.

Asked by: Igorb1
Thank you for your inquiry!
The Zebco 33 MAX Spincast Reel comes pre-spooled with 20-lb. Cajun Line. This is more than heavy enough for bass fishing.
