I really like the Omega Spincaster, the worm gear drive and bearing system make them very smooth and quiet. I have no issues with the micro adjust drag system and the 3 pin pick up is a big plus. These reels work great casting jigs, crankbaits, sonar or just still fishing with crappie rigs and the like. These reels are quite capable of handling big fish. Fishing the Missouri River, sooner or later your going to snag a paddlefish(catch & release) and this reel has handled these big fish with no issues. This reels only issue is monofilament line, as it tends to hang up from flat spots and line twist. It also becomes harder to spool, reeling line in, fish on or not. Switched over to braided line and that issue has pretty much been solved for trouble free operation..
I've had this reel for 2 years now and very Happy with the performance. I got this for My wife to fish with and she loved it. once I used it I got myself one. this thing will cast a mile. perfect for shooting docks and boat house's and with no backlash. I run 12# test Mono and have had 30# braid on it.
If your have casing problems change your line to a better line once Mono gets a memory it will never cast good on any reel.
Will buy another
great spin cast
Hope to purchase again next year .
Great combo rod and reel set for the 60 plus kids we will be having at our youth fishing clinic. 5 star product and company.
Nice reel but there is issues
I bought this reel because I was told that if I go to another closed face this is the one I need. Well I was happy until the line started to bind up in the spool. I am not sure if I will ever go to a closed face reel again.

Yes I would but these poles again
We hand them out for the kids fishing derby and they are nice poles that are easy to use for the children.
I had no idea a spincaster could be so good!
I bought the Omega 3 Pro ZO3 when I started kayak fishing to cut down on the amount of equipment needed in the boat. I use it on a 6.5ft medium action rod with 10lb mono and I am 100% pleased. It is full proof - sitting, casting one-handed, rocking in the wake of another boat, and adjusting my position with a paddle in the other hand - all with zero chance of backlashing. Casting is smooth, and the distance is great. It handles lightweight crappie jigs up to heavy bass baits. I still go for my baitcaster for accuracy and/or when heavier weight braid or fluorocarbon is needed, but I am sure glad I have an Omega Pro!
Omega Pro Z02
I like the size of this reel, and purchased it specifically so my grand children can learn to fish without the hassle and difficult of learning to use other types of reels. Since the Omega Pro Z02/Z03 seem very well built I willing bought one of each. After a little backyard practice I've come to find out the 6 lb. test on the Z02 is just not very strong. Snapped the line with a casting plug once, and then with a small lure out on the river. I went ahead and changed over to some Trilene XL 10 lb test which cut back on how much line I could put on, but still casts well. In the process of attaching the new fishing line I found out that this Omega Pro Z02 I purchased back in Dec of 2017 from Bass Pro didn't have the 3 pickup pins on the spinner head as advertised. It only has two. It still works fine picking up the line even with the 10 lb test, but I am a little disappointed in Zebco in this. They advertise the 3 pin pickup spinner head and that's not what I got. I like the reel and the grand kids seem to enjoy casting with it, but somebody made a mistake on my reel.
I happened to took a look at the schematics for both the Omega Pro Z02 and the Omega Z02. The Pro appears to have the 3 pin spinner head and the schematic for the Omega Z02 looks like it has the 2 pin spinner head. I bet they are the exact same size and got switched somehow in the built up.
Overall this is a sweet little spincaster, but I think it's too small line wise. Time will tell if it holds up after this year of some fishing with the grand kids. As it stands now, I should have bought the Omega Pro Z03 twice instead one of each.
Best spincast reel ever
I had always wanted to try the black Omega Pro Z03 reel just to see what an upper end spincast reel was like, but I didnt want to spend $70 on it, afterall it is just a spincast reel. I looked at one in the store on display and instantly noticed the ocillating spool. No more line dig on the spool and no more mid-cast line snags. It's silky smooth and quiet, and with three line pick-up pins, it gets positive line engagement every single time. I was sold. The drag works perfect and micro adjustable. It doesn't bind up when reeling in under a load. My only complaint is it only holds 85 yds of 10lb test line. If I switch to 8lb it would hold more. Extra spool, single and double know handles included, metal frame, fit and finish is perfect. It just has such a good feel to it. This is my new go-to reel for trout, panfish, and light catfishing.
Probably The Best Spincast On The Market
Really like the Omaga Spincast Reels! Big improvement over previous models with better drive gears, three pin pickup, easy swap out spools and micro adjust drag to name a few. This reel has been more then up to the task of taking on larger fish! My only complaint has been hang ups with monofilament line! When mono stretches it gets flat spots and then it begins to hang up on the spool. Needless to say it's aggravating when casting plugs, jigs and the like. I switched over to braided line and did that make a difference. Better smoother casts, distance and no hang ups. With braided line being a smaller diameter, it means more line on the spool as well. Since there is no stretch to braided, you do have to adjust your drag accordingly. Making the change has really turned the Omaga into a super nice Spincast Reel.
