Zebco 33Pl Platinum Spincast Reel

I remember back in the day when my mom and uncle would take me fishing. All they used was zebco 33's, and regular versions at that and they were an amazing reel. Now they are very cheaply made. I have been through about 8 of these reels in the past years. The drag system is junk. It either slips when retrieving just your lure or a fish sometimes.
