Zebco Protégé™ Answers Call for More Baitcasting Reels
Angling consumers often ask Zebco why they don’t make more baitcasting reels – proving Zebco isn’t just a ‘spincast’ company, but instead, a respected fishing brand in the minds of those that love to fish.
The new ProtégéTM reel will go far in satisfying consumer requests for an affordable Zebco baitcasting reel for under fifty bucks.
Built with a lightweight metal aluminum spool, an external magnetic cast control allows anglers to dial-in precise preferences in the braking system no matter how light the lure, or how strong the wind is blowing.
Protégé offers a great all-around 6.1:1 retrieve speed, operated on a 3 bearing system, and when your best bite of the day comes, a disc drag system will lend reassurance during the fight.
When purchased as a combo with the rod, anglers will be very impressed at the lightweight graphite blank, natural split-grip cork handle, and tough-to-tear-up lightweight guides. Early field-testers say the rod feels far pricier than what you’ll have to pay.
