New Bullet!

 We love our Zebco Bullet reels. I hear folks say, all the time, "pushbutton reels are for beginners and kids". Not so, and they've never tried one of these. It has 9 sealed ball bearing assemblies, and even uses them in the line pickups for the oscillating spool. It casts a mile like a bait cast reel, has a tremendous retrieve rate of almost 30" per revolution of the handle (similar to about a 7.5:1 bait cast retrieve rate), and the ball bearing pickups allow the use of braid with no problems. We fish all day, not a single blow-up. I can't say enough good stuff about them. 

Anyway, we recently picked up one of the new Bullet  MG reels....same reel but with a lighter magnesium construction. After one day of use, I can say that there will be more of these in our lineup!
