Zebco New Trout Seeker Spinning Reel

The problem with ultralight spinning reels is that everything about them is, well, “light.” By design, they are light in weight, light in stature and light in line. The latter means spools are little too, because, after all, the line that goes on them is also of micro size.

           

The trade-off with tiny ultralight spinning reel spools has always been the slow retrieve that comes from the dynamics of their small diameters.

           

Zebco is speeding things up in the ultralight world with its new Trout Seeker 3-bearing spinning reel, model TSHR10, featuring an innovative High-Rev Retrieve system. The Trout Seeker sports a larger spool on its ultralight frame to recover more inches of line per each full turn of the handle. As a result, the reel’s 5.2:1 gear ratio gobbles up as much as an amazing 29.3" of line per each full turn of the handle, at least a 30 % increase in retrieve speed over that of traditional ultralight reels. 

           

Casting distance is improved, too, and it has increased line capacity (holding 265 yards of 4 lb. test) Additional benefits include smoother drag starts when the drag is needed, and reduced line twist and memory.

 

Specifications Include:

• 3-Bearing System

• Large Diameter Spool

• Smoother Drag start

• Reduces Line twist and memory

• 29.3" Max per turn

• 30% Faster Retrieve

About Zebco Hawg Seeker Bite Alert

Signals bites with sight and sound

New. Big. LOUD.

It’s a rather unusual description for a reel, but it takes all three words to really paint a picture as to what Zebco’s new Hawg Seeker™ technology is all about: sight and sound. Thanks to BiteAlert, catfish aficionados can now see and hear the fish bite.

           

Hawg Seeker’s BiteAlert is a built-into-the-reel bite detector that signals a strike with bright flashing red lights and an audible alarm. The waterproof technology is available in a hefty spincast reel or a beefed-up spinning reel. The feature can be turned on or off with a push of a button. And the sensitivity for the detection can be adjusted up or down according to wind, current or the degree of a fish’s feeding aggression.

           

Two replaceable CR2032 long-lasting Lithium batteries power the lights and alarm. Since Hawg Seeker is made for serious catfish anglers with big fish in mind, they are ultra-tough reels designed for all catfish kinds and sizes.

           

The Hawg Seeker spincast model is a ball-bearing drive reel with an oversized frame, sturdy guts, star drag, continuous anti-reverse and 2:58:1 power gear ratio.  It comes pre-spooled with 150 yards of quality 20 lb. test line. The reel’s dual-paddle handle is interchangeable to right or left hand retrieve. The BiteAlert lights are located across the top of the reel, right behind the front cover for perfect visibility from all angles.

           

The Hawg Seeker spinning reel has a ball-bearing drive, high-strength gear system, front adjustable multi-disc drag and Continuous Anti-Reverse. Its handle is changeable to right or left side. And the big aluminum spool comes pre-loaded with quality 20 lb. test line. The BiteAlert lights are located at the butt of the reel for visibility from all sides.

           

The sight and sound features to detect bites take all of the guesswork out of fishing with multiple rods in daylight and darkness.

           

Hawg Seeker with BiteAlert comes in rod and reel combos, too. The 7' two-piece combo rods used in both spinning and spincast are made specifically for their intended use – catching catfish. Rod blanks are durable E-Glass construction in medium-heavy actions. Handles are split-grips with EVA for user comfort and control. Foregrips are scalloped for a no-twist hold during big battles. And butt sections are extra-long for added leverage to lob heavy weights and bait as far as possible. A weight clip is located between the grips to secure the hook and weight for safe and easy transporting.
