Just wanted share some pics of an old Zebco I have and keep hanging onto. Story is a friends uncle got for retirement in 1958, I acquired in 1992 when I helped him with an estate settlement. Still in the original package as he received it in 1958.

Wow, $45.90 in 1958! Just did a quick online calculator of 1958 to 2017 dollars: $45.90 in 1958 would be $338.36 in 2017. Premium stuff right there.

The Original Zebco 33 was, by far, the best reel ever made.


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10
