Rated 4 out of 5 by Jim Probably a good reel
Would not fit my rod as it is a low profile reel and rod did not provide enough clearance for reel to fit it. Will have to purchase a new rod to use the reel. Also, the Cajun 20# line is very stiff and will need to be replaced with a better quality line. Have an earlier model of this reel that I used for 30 years and was quite pleased. Believe it is probably a very good reel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by amadmac Would use it if I could
I have not been able to use theis reel. It appears to be a good reel for the money. It feels stout and solid with smooth action as I would expect from Zebco. Unfortunately it will not fit on my rod as the mounting feet on the reel are too close to the housing to allow it fo fit unnder the mounting shoe on the rod. It is an old rod, over 40 years with a Zebco reel that finally died. I must either return the reel or buy a new rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dubis Great for any fishing needs.
Right now I'm just getting my camping gear to where I can use it if I decide to go out on a whim. I actually haven't tried it yet in the wilderness but, I believe that this reel will allow me to pretty much get any size fish I would want with the 20lbs test that comes with the reel right out of the factory. I am really itching to give this a try and not just use a practice plug anymore. Let's go fishing!

I'm extremely happy with my recently purchased Zebco 733. It arrived shortly after I ordered it. It's performing beyond my expectations. Thanks you Dick's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TnFisherman Perfect for the Cats
I have been using it since June and use it for my main catfish reel. Pulls in the big ones like pulling in a minnow. Casting is excellent, even with 20 lb. line, it reels in smooth. My only 2 cons are the extendable rod, it does tend to slip and twist now and then, and it is sometmes hard to tell when you get a hit, but since the cats usually grab and run, it isn' a big deal. (It does have the bait alert) Overall another EXCELLENT Zebco product!!! I would highly recommend it to others, at least for a heavy duty catfish pole.
