808® is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best reel I could find, and it did the trick. Bought this reel at Walmart. I think it was 30 dollars. Added it to a 100 dollar Ugly Stick. I was never good at bait cast reels and needed to catch the salmon here in Alaska. This reel did the trick, small 5 pound salmon and didn't even know the fish was on the line. I could catch a 30 pounder no problem with this reel. I out fish the old time pros with this reel, and cast farther. I get a lot of stinkeye with a baitcaster but who cares. I win with my Zebco.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sheared metal gears This reel stripped the main gear on its first time bowfishing. Shot a fish and when reeling down I could hear it jump. I like the look and feel of the reel, just wish the gears were a bit stronger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Zebco 808 This is a great reel! I need a big reel to handle 20 lb. mono. I have had zebco's for 42 years.

Questions

Can the 808 handle 20lb. Power pro braid.

Asked by: Ultimate1
It is possible to use braided line on these reels however we recommend using mono line in the appropriate pound test to get the maximum performance from these reels. If using braid we do recommend 30lb or higher.

I see that this will hold 145/20 line, is this distance measured in feet or yards? Thank you.

What is the difference between this 808h and the 808 magnum?

Asked by: Martin
Here’s a summary of the differences: 1) 808H is an all new platform with improvements to the drag, anti-reverse, thumb button, snub-off performance and reduced line tangles. 2) 808H has a plastic front cover; 808 Magnum has a metal front cover and 1 extra bearing. If you are wanting something on the new platform that is spec’d more closely to the 808 Magnum, I would suggest the 888H.
