Zebco Omega 3, Omega 2 Fishing Reels

Fishing Reels Manufacturer: Zebco
Zebco Model: Omega 3, Omega 2
Review Category: Fishing Reels

Purchase: I was impressed with the quality and smoothness while examining one in Dick's Sporting Goods store, when the Omega first came out. I bought it immediately. I paid $50.00.

Things I like about the Zebco Omega 3, Omega 2: The soft rubber thumb button allows precise casting control. It casts beautifully and retrieves with absolute reliability, and no missed pickups. The drag control works easily and smoothly while fighting a fish. I like to set my drag light to begin with and add more as needed.

What I don't like about the Zebco Omega 3, Omega 2: The aluminum housing is subject to scratching fairly easily, which in no way affects the reel's function.

Omega 3, Omega 2 quality: The unit is ruggedly constructed of machined aluminum, stainless steel and brass with stampings or castings only in places which will have little or no affect on it's durability or useability. There are 3 pickup pins (reliability), made of ceramic (long life), as well as a ceramic line guide. 6 stainless steel bearings spell smoothness in operation. The soft thumb button seals the rear opening, keeping out dirt and trash. This is the highest quality spincast reel I have seen to date.

Omega 3, Omega 2 summary: I am retiring soon and have begun collecting fishing gear which will see constant use, and last the rest of my life. The Omega fills the bill...I also have the Omega 2 for the light spincast category. I can't wait to see if an Omega 1 in ultralight is produced. I allow the grandchildren to use this reel without worrying about them hurting it.
