Looking for a reliable spin cast reel with a trigger for a crappie rod. Not interested in a spinning reel as I will be using the rod to hike through brush and my experience has shown brush likes to snag on open faced reels and line, plus small diameter rod guides.
Read a few reviews on zebco 11 and the zebco 33 micro with differing opinions between great to not what they used to be to reel failed on trying to land moby dick.
The mini zebco reels interest me because I am looking to go after crappie, no need to cast a country mile, small size to fit into backpack, and reduced distance between rod and trigger. Reason for minimal distance between rod and trigger/reel is due to smaller diameter for the first guide. The rod is a fly/spin setup with the action more geared toward fly fishing.
Any other recommendations for a quality trigger spin reel in the ultralight 4 lbs line class?
