Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have always been a fan of the 33 reel but for large I have always been a fan of the 33 reel but for large channels it takes some finesse to land them on 8 pound test. This year I decided to buy a 808 because I have never liked spinning reels. I have used it 12 times this year and I am happy with its performance. It has landed a 21 inch channel and many 18 +. It actually seems to preform better with bigger fish. Its not as smooth as the 33 and the drag lacks percussion but it's up to the job. It's the only spinncast that will handle a big cat. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good reel I've had the previous version of this reel for about 6 years. I've caught a lot of catfish with it on the rivers in OK and a few redfish in LA. If I had to guess, I'd say it's caught close to 100 fish of various sizes 1-10lbs. It has never failed and always worked pretty well. I'll be honest and say I don't take very good care of it either. I often use it as a backup to my old school penn reels when I get an issue with backlash etc. and a primary reel for fishing punch bait. I'm actually surprised its held up as well as it did. I cast 1-3 oz of weight regularly and it will sail a bait across the river or lake. Just recently the drag stopped making a sound, but it still works perfectly. I can buy any reel I want, but I really enjoy fishing with this one. The only negative thing I can say is that the stock line's terrible on all these reels. Its worth the 6 bucks to re-spool it with berkely big game or something else. Hope this review helps someone. Its a great reel for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bull Red Tested This is my go to reel for novice fisherman that I take coastal fishing in Louisiana. We have landed several Bull Reds(Red Drum 26"+) on these reels and they have held up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zebco 808 Saltwater - great for catfishing The Zebco 808 SW is a nice reel. I purchased it over the regular 808 or the 888 as I felt the fact that it was made for saltwater it would hold up better than the others I mentioned. I was a little skeptical that I would like the power handle as I generally prefer the double paddle style, but I do like it and think it works great. I still would like a choice of handle styles though. Still fishing the line that came on it and as it's one of the few Zebco reels that will handle braid, I'll probably give that a try when I switch out the line. So is this guy just talking about reels, or does he actually use it? Well, as a matter of fact I used it for some early morning catfishing on the 4th of July and got a couple of nice eating size channel cats. It casts well, reels smoothly and the drag seems decent, though I have not caught anything to give it a good workout yet. I have it mounted on a 7 foot ugly stick medium action pole. PROS: easy to use, well built, works well. Seems built to last a long time. CONS: a bit big for my needs. I fish channel cats more than some of the other bigger species and it would be really nice if Zebco built something along the lines of a 33max size reel but with 808SW or Omega build quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holding up well It's been a couple of years since I last wrote about my reel. I've been fishing cats with it regularly and it works well. The one negative I have is with casting heavy baits. Sometimes I fish with big chunk of sucker and a 3 oz sinker. So probably a 4 oz load overall. The problem is that when holding down the button to cast, it won't hold that weight to keep it from slipping during the cast. So basically when I use that heavy of a bait I will use my non casting hand to pinch the line until I'm ready to release. Takes a bit of practice but works. Thats really the only knock I have. I should probably consider a round baitcaster for baits that large. Overall it's held up great and I don't baby it. I still want a 733 size built like the Omega, 808sw or with some of the Bullet technology for targeting smaller catfish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Reel This Reel is exceptional! Have owned mine over a year now. # trips 2 the Beach Pier and no problems. Why it is Great is that it casts fm overhand or underhand so well ! Plus the drag is EZ 2 use and set. Saving up for a second one now.
