View Full Version : Old spincast reels?

I came across a few old johnson 710's and Sabre today. Also a abumatic 290 and a couple old made in america zebco 33 metal seat reals. I cleaned them up today and they all work slick as a hounds touth. They belonged to my great grand parents and I can't wait to take them out this spring and let my young boys land some bobber and minnow crappie on them. I remember fishing in the early 80's with my great grandma before she died and she always wore a ankle lenght skirt to the pond but also had a hi-standard .22 pistol around her waist for snakes and such. LOL. I have her pistol and abumatic and johnson reels. Also a couple lews speed sticks, and a eagle claw rod that says wright mcgill. Good memories.

So, What is your favorite old spincast?

I've "revived" two Zebco 2020's, and a Zebco Classic Depth Locator that my Mom & Stepdad used to use ... I also have a Zebco 33 that I fished (snagged) out of a local lake, that I'm in the process of working on ... and I have a Daiwa Silvercast 208RL that I bought years ago. Can't really say any "spincast" reel is/has been my favorite ... but, there are memories & sentimental value attached to every one of them I've ever had, or used.
