    Certainly looks cheaply made, doesn't it.

    Treestand, thanks for mentioning Penn Reels and eBay. Country Road has suggested that I get a Penn for my shore fishing.

    Yeah, they have always been a cheap reel, but if working there is still a use for it. One example being that we often use cheap rods/reels as an alternative to bank lines for catfish. Basically just as a beater setup that we aren't afraid to throw around. Also would be good for a pre-rigged bluegill or crappie setup..something you could just leave against a wall or in a car and not worry about it.
    Great point JM. A beater rod and reel is usually what I take when fishing from a canoe.

    My first spin cast setup was a Zebco "ZeeBee" 101. A guy at church took me bass fishing.
    We caught about 40 bass in the 2 to 3 pound range!
    Ground the drag in my Zebco 101 smooth as a baby's butt! LOL! So I went and bought another one!
    I think they were $3.95.
    I was working at the auction barn hustling weigh tickets from the ring to the office making 75 cents an hour. Probably made $2/$3 per auction.
    Rich man!
    Bubba, I think most of us in my family started out with Zebo reels.

    started a topic Zebco xlr35?

    Zebco xlr35?

    Among the stuff I got from my friend's house sale was an older rod and reel. I asked her how much she wanted for it, and she said just take it. The rod is a South Bend Concorde SST. I looked that up, and it appears to be pretty cheap. But the reel is a Zebco xlr35. I'm having a hard time finding info on it, other than it's fairly old. Anyone know anything about it?
