How about that return to Zebco. I went creek fishing with my small open face rod and reel early this summer. It was a brushy bugger I had the line and the bale more or less tangled up all day, and I fell in a couple times and put the reel under. When I got home I noticed an old Zebco 404 in the corner on half a pole I had kicking around forever. Got that reel running 50% but too far gone, but by then I knew what I needed, so I laid in the 202, then a 404, then a spare 202 and now the 33lxb. Addictive personality : ).
