View Full Version : Johnson Javelin/J. Gold Vs. Zebco 33
Planning on doing a variety of fishing, up to about 2.5 foot carp. Both of these have been recommended to me, and I can't really decide much. I also know the Javelin Gold is only a few bucks more, not sure of what the main difference is. This would mainly be for the little lady, who is about 5 foot and getting better at fishing by the day. Any pluses or cons to either, or one better suited?
they're both inexspensive beginners reels. the improved rhino 33(red) reel is supposed to have metal/harder gears and be smoother. for small fish they're ok but for big carp i would think they would "strip" the reel. you might want to get a spinning reel. for the price you would probably be better off. shouldn't be any more difficult to cast either.
No Rhinos sold around here, it's essentially completely narrowed down to these two. They're for the little lady mainly anyways.
