Large and Legendary Zebco 808® and 888® Add New Muscle to top-of-the-line Big Spincast Reels
Fishing’s most popular large spincast reels, the Zebco 808® and 888®, enter 2016 with a thumb button that’s now anchored to the body of the reel for a much more solid feel, plus a hardier anti-reverse system.
Recognizing the 808 and 888’s popular roles as tow trucks for large species like blue catfish and even muskies, internally, the spool has been modified to create a non-slip surface for anglers who often use braided line.
Plus, the drag system has been improved to cover a wider range of drag settings, and the snub-off component has been enhanced to allow anglers to cast heavy lures or lead without fear or frustration of slippage occurring on the cast.
Adding to spincast’s most appreciated quality of tangle free fishing is a uniquely designed T-ring that greatly reduces the fishing line’s ability to travel behind the spinnerhead of the 808 and 888.
Both the 808 and 888 feature a 2.6:1 Power Drive. The 808 comes factory spooled with 20-pound line. The stainless-covered 888 is ready to go out of the box with 25 pound test, and a large stamped stainless Power T handle.
