Zebco Protege 100 Baitcasting Fishing Reel will answer the call from fishermen who wanted classic Zebco reliability in a baitcasting reel. As creator of the world's first spincast reel, Zebco has now placed all their years of ease and innovation into the Protege 100 Baitcasting Reel. It uses an external magnetic cast control to let you set a precise preference in the braking system so no matter how light the lure or how strong the wind is blowing, you can get your line to where the fish are. Plus, the aluminum spool, 6.1:1 retrieve speed and disc-drag system will make sure that an unmistakable bite becomes an unforgettable catch of the day.

The Lightweight graphite frame and aluminum spool construction lets you fish longer without arm fatigue and the Magnetic cast control allows you to dial in on precise preferences in the braking system no matter how light your lure or how strong the wind. The 6.1:1 retrieve speed is operated on a 3 bearing system. The disc-drag system has a 15 lb. maximum so you can be reassured that your best bite will stay in play when you go to haul 'em in.

Pleased to be Back

by mark the preacher

I have been fisning for 56 years. I started casting with a Zebco 33. As my skills advanced i used equipment by Shimano, Diawa, Shakespeare and more. Recently I purchased the Zebco Protoge baitcaster. I was surprised Zebco makes such a quaility real/rod at a fabulous price. Though Zebco makes great spincast and triggercast reels I was skeptical about its baitcaster. Though I have only used it a few times, I am pleased with its balance, weight, smoothness of casting and its ability to be tuned to reduce backlash. For the money, it certainly is a bargain. Of course, only time will tell of its durability and lifespan. But for now I am pleased to be back with the brand with which I started.
