The Zebco Ladies Pink Slingshot Spincast Fishing rod is just under 6 feet, and is built with all metal gears, an auto bait alert, and adjustable drag. Of course, as the name suggests, this rod comes in pink. It comes with a closed spincast rod. And the best part? It is pink! But don’t judge this rod based on the color. Plus, it isn’t even THAT pink anyway.
As a present, this would be perfect for your child’s first “grown-up” rod. It is a very simple rod to use, built with the first-timer in mind. Considering who the rod is made for, the Pink Slingshot should be used to catch smaller fish from a river or a lake. Also, it would be best to use a waited lure on here to prevent the line from tangling upon retrieving your line. And Dads, if your rod ends up being a dud you can use the Slingshot as a backup rod! Coming from Zebco, you should expect a quality rod that is built with quality, but keep in mind that for the price, this will not be the best rod of all time. But it will do its job and get your children interested in fishing.
Overall, this is a great rod to introduce a young loved one to the sport of fishing. We could all use a reason to get outside and play instead of being holed up in our rooms in front of our computers all day. A lightweight rod, it will keep your kids entertained for hours. It may even allow you a little breathing time so you can catch your own fish!
The Zebco fishing tackle company began with an industrial designer who went by the name of R.D. Hull. Initially, he worked as a watchmaker and barber. Then he began his career in the fishing tackle business by inventing the backlash-free reel. After many years of failures, he discovered a new design inspired by a random sighting at the marketplace. He convinced the Zero Hour Bomb Company to take on his project. It was called the “Standard” reel. The invention was a success, and the rest is history. He was now officially in the fishing tackle business, producing a reel that was a crowd favorite.
Many contributions and collaborations later, Zebco grew to become a monster in the fishing tackle game. At the low prices for their quality products and the risqué marketing stunts, the company grew rapidly, producing rods for all types of fishing. The company is what many would call the epitome of the American dream – sown and grown right on American soil. The company with the first spincast reel now makes low-cost reels as well as high-end models for all pocket sizes, in addition to their wide variety of fishing tackle.
