Should be fine f for filling the freezer with eaters. I have caught a ton of fish on a Zebco 33’s . We used to use them and dunk them in the water if the got hard to reel .

They caught a dozen like this tonight spooled up with 15# Big Game on zebco 33’s. The youngests rod is a Star Wars special with a reel that looks like C3PO the robot. He caught one over 5 lbs. tonight on 3PO.
