When I started fishing two years ago I bought three reels right off: Two Zebco Omegas, the "Cadillac" of spincast reels in both price and quality and the Rhino RSC3 to bang around with.

The Rhino has worked harder, has a better drag button (the knob on both my Omegas' is loose, this has been a problem with them) and feels smoother than my Omegas which cost twice as much. Now that I no longer use spincast as I've moved on to baitcast the reel I gave my wife who wants to start fishing the Rhino. It is much lighter and easier to work. Having owned two Omegas I think I can safely say I it is no fluke the Rhino I got is better. On paper the Omega should smoke the Rhino - in usage the Rhino wins out. It is just a great reel and will last forever. Don't use in saltwater!

My Omgeas are reel wall decorations compared to the Rhino which gets used.

I will say however that yes, the reel is tightly threaded. Make sure you get in on straight or you could strip it. I have also had a friend that on my recommendation bought two Rhino's - an RSC2 and RSC3. The RSC2 model which I have never used failed right out of the box. The replacement RSC2 lasted about 1 month of hard fishing before it started locking up on the cast. He traded for another RSC3 and has not had any problems for about a year now. Make sure you get a good RSC3 and it will last you a long time.

This is the third time I've changed my review in less than 24 hours. This is a great reel. It's smooth, every moving part (except the bait alert/anti reverse switch and the release button) is metal, and all the gears are huge and very well made. It has 3 ball bearings, the drag is precise and easy to use besides (the oversized vertical nob is a great idea, its way easier to turn than a traditional horizontal wheel), the crank handle is actually forged aluminum, the spool and spinner head are built like a tank, the drag wheel looks like its made of plastic but don't be fooled, its actually metal covered in rubber, it has dual ceramic pickup pins (a lot of spincast reels have ceramic pickup pins these days, but its still a huge deal. If your reel has plastic pickup pins, its going to be a paperweight in a year or so). The reel body is ABS as opposed to metal, but this is the 8th spincasting reel I've owned in the past 20 years with every major manufacturer (Zebco, Johnson, Shakespeare, Daiwa, Garcia) represented except Pfleuger, and this is by far the most substantial and robust ABS frame I've ever seen. The anti-reverse is also extremely responsive, and I don't just mean it feels fast because the spinner head is small compared to the bail on a spinning reel, I mean the spinner head barely turns before the anti-reverse engages. The front cover is also pretty solid, its made of forged aluminum with what appears to be a stainless steel insert for the line guide (A nice touch. you want the line guide to be a relatively hard material since it has to withstand the friction of the line). To sum up although this is a modestly priced spincasting reel, it is all around very well made. In fact its one of the nicest spincasters I've ever seen. Before this, my favorite was the old Zebco 33 "bullet".Read more ›

I use spincast reels predominantly when I fish. When my Zebco Bullet finally wore out, I decided to replace it with what I thought was the best spincast reel on the market, the new Rhino. Unfortunately I was mistaken. The Rhino has some serious problems:

(1) The cap for the reel is so finely threaded that it easily cross threads. Taking off the cap to rethread line becomes a major hassle.

(2) The line release button is covered by a rubber boot. This can hinder casting.

(3) This was the first reel where I've actually had a part break internally. Part of the bait alert system (useless btw) broke and jammed my entire reel. I had to call off my fishing trip in order to go home and work on the reel.

(4) Constant tension must be kept on the line in order for the line pickups to work (and subsequently be able to actually reel in your line). This is especially true if you use the stock line that comes pre-spooled.

In conclusion, this is a finicky reel that must be kept clean and maintained. It can't just be kept in your garage for the occasional usage, unless you are prepared to work on your reel for half the fishing trip.

Used this reel twice, for my granddaughter. It does not lock back turning so she reels in backward and get line tangled in reel.
changed line twice to get rid of line twists, used good line .trilene. the line can be pulled out and handles turn even after you have reeled in a few feet. absolutly no drag. you just can not use this reel. We use zebco 33 and have a great time.

Tried replacing the good old Zebco 33 with this thing. Looked and felt great till first cast. Something is really wrong with the brake release timing. If you throw it like a child it will function. If not, you may get a hook in the face. Bad ju ju on this one. Heading back to the 33.

I received this as a club gift during a drawing and was going to give it to my grandson. I kept depressing the release and it would not release or rewind the line. I contacted Zebco customer service and they sent me a parts diagram of the reel. I took it apart and found a ball (50 yards) of line that was placed in behind spool and then took the reel apart and the washers were incorrectly installed in the reel. After taking about an hour of time on this reel and putting it all back together properly the reel work as it should. Very pool job of putting together this reel at the assembly plant. The line that was put on this reel was also very heavy too heavy for the size of the reel and will have to be replaced. Only giving a one star rating for this reel and the way it was put together.
