I own three Cabelas downrigger reels and they all work good. The reels I own are made by Shimano with cabelas name slapped on them. Cabelas outsources there reel manufacturing to other companies. The best thing to do is find out who
Manufactured the reel your lOoking at. The owners manual will usually have the manufacturer listed.
Wow, big fish, what you using!

I had terrible luck with the tourney zx. I would stay away. Cabelas's higher end reels though are made by Daiwa. For the money, you CANNOT beat a Prodigy as it is simply the Daiwa Tierra with a Cabelas label. I've got two. I've also got two Daiwa Tierras. Kick shimano's butt out of the water as far as durability is concerned. The tourney zx is a cheap reel that may be good for smaller fish but one king on it last year was enough as the drag got burnt immediately.....

Have had good luck with the Cabelas Prodigy Baitcaster made by Diawa .. no issues smooth casting smooth drag.

The Prodigy Spin Reel(by diawa) worked good for a couple years then the anti-reverse quit working. So I promptly returned it in exchange for 2 cabelas Tournament ZX spinning reels (by diawa) which I have had good success with so far.

ODH I highly recommend you using a Zebco Spin Cast. This is more to your skill set. Better yet, my 3 yr old daughter has a pink barbie rod/reel she has grown out of, you can have it. Heck, I'll even give it to you for free. Save you some money at Cabela's.

I have a Cabelas Prodidgy Reel and Cabelas 8'6" Xmlti steelhead rod I will sell for $100 dollars for both. I purchased them for 230 dollars. I did about three casts with it and decided I like spinning gear better. I also have the receipt, box and the rod has a lifetime warranty. If anyone is interested let me know.
