On the final 50 Campfires Field Trip, I had a opportunity to field-test the new Zebco 33 reel that will be out in 2020. The most substantial modify is that it will have a 20% more rapidly retrieval price. I like this a lot simply because it tends to make the reel a lot more versatile. Spincast reels are best for bobber fishing but can be a bit sluggish if you want to cast spinning jigs or spoons for bigger fish. It is a lot more sensible to bring one particular rod and reel on an outing, and I identified the new model to be noticeably more rapidly compared to the existing model.
Most of the other adjustments are aesthetic, with one particular exception: the new model has a bigger button for casting. This is wonderful for novice anglers, but I liked it myself as properly. I’m all for something that tends to make a reel much easier to operate.
As you can see in the photographs beneath, they created a handful of other adjustments as properly. The new Zebco 33 reel will have a matte finish on the cover, and it no longer has “33” stamped on the crank manage. It is also a totally enclosed cover, as opposed to the existing model, which has holes.
It was entertaining testing it out for an afternoon. I had no tangles whatsoever, but that is the 33 for you – it is created to function flawlessly for years. No surprise there. I was most impressed with the more rapidly retrieval price. It meant that I could get a lot more casting in, and I’m all about making a lot more possibilities to catch fish. Appear for it in 2020.
