888® is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zebco Reel This is my favorite reel it the 888 SPINCAST REEL I use it all the time
Date published: 2016-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to Saltwater reel. I use this reel in the saltwater of the Gulf of Mexico almost everyday since I bought it. I fish the gulf almost every day for two to four hours at a time and sometimes twice a day. I did waterproof the inside with a rust preventer CP90. This reel is smooth casting and reeling in the big Bull Reds. I have had zero problems. I have been using the 808 Magnum ( I have 4 of them ) for the last two years in saltwater after waterproofing the inside and they have held up well except for the release button. With this new design I don't expect this problem. I will be buying another one or two in the near future. I usually fish with 3 rods at the same time as I am a surf fisher. Zebco's best reel so far.

Questions

When it comes to mono.  How much higher can you go beyond the 25 pound test that it comes prespooled with, without hurting the reels performance or causing tangles? 

Asked by: Slick1980
For mono would recommend 15 pound mono up to 30 pound .

why does walmart advertise 2 different 888 models, (888h 25 bx3) $36.36 and (888h 25 cp3) $30.16. The search on the zebco web site only lists the bx3. What is the difference???

Asked by: bensgreentrain
They are the same reel, only packaged differently. The BX3 comes in a box and the CP comes in a Clam pack.

I have 2 888's 1 from 85 and 1 from 05. Both work great. Could I use them for chinook salmon. I am in iowa but going to see family in oregon. So would these reels be good for 60 or 80 lb line? Or should I buy something else?

Asked by: Dennis
Fishing for Chinook or king salmon is a different thing than fishing for other salmon. They can weigh up to 60lbs and they dictate the fight, most will be in the 20-30lb range. Are you going out on a charter or on a friends boat. If a charter they will provide all the tackle, so leave yours at home. If you go out with your family spool up with 50lb braid if you have two pickup pins and check that your drag is in good working order and check what the max is.. The new 888 has a drag of 24lbs. Make sure you have a stout pole in the 20-50lb range and then have some fun. Tom

Exactly how many pounds drag does this reel go up to and how do you tell how much you have set? Or does it jus go by feel with the drag wheel setter?

Asked by: Tex2SD
This reel has 24lb of max drag. It would go by feel.
