Zebco 11T micro Gold

Date:May 12, 2007
Im a longtime Zebco spincast supporter ..... Ive always loved these reels and still do .... however , there is a flaw in the design with my brand new Zebco 11T micro Gold spincast reel ... in order to facilitate the 5 % of the population that's left-handed they have made a flawed reversable handle on this reel .... no matter what I try , I cannot get my handle to stop wobbling so bad that I don't want to use the reel ... I mean, like an AK-47 , alittle loose tolerance between parts is acceptable but the handle on my Zebco 11T micro Gold is almost un-usable .... this design doesn't seem to work on this smaller reel .....I like the old fixed Zebco handles better... on my larger Zebco 33 Gold reel the handle wobble is not quite as bad .... while the rest of this micro reel seems like the wonderful dependable quality we all expect from Zebco spincast reels, man , they have to fix this handle design !
Id recommend buying the larger Gold series reels because of this wobbly handle problem.

Kept cutting my line...

Date:May 7, 2012
I decided to get back into the fishing game with my grandson so I picked up a Zebco 33 Gold. (I had used an old Zebco 33 for years and it was virtually indestructable.) Long story short, the thing kept cutting my line (inside the spool) and I planted 6 lures in the middle of the lake. I returned to Cabelas and exchanged it for a Zebco 33 Platinum which worked like a charm. I guess the extra three bucks was worth it.
NOTE: Kudos to Cabelas for an easy exchange process and helpful staff.

33T gold

Date:December 20, 2009
I purchased the trigger version because I liked the concept, which I still think is well thought out. But this reel is junk. I tried different line wieghts, brands, and materials, and nothing worked. The price of the reel is cheap, and that's what you get.

Not a Good Reel - Even for Child

Date:August 26, 2009
I bought this reel in a combo set for my 6 year old. The rod is marginal, at best. The reel lasted less than a day and turned to junk. The drag pretty much stopped working. The line would not cast out well and became difficult to reel back in. I would recommend you look at something else.

Poor, very poor.

Date:August 20, 2007
When you take the 33T out of the package and hold in in your hand you can tell it is poorly made. Then I put it on my new rod and gave it a try. The line snaged inside the closed face and came out with several jerks. Tried it several more times with the same results. Boxed it up, sent it back and will never try Zebco again.
