See and hear the strike with the Zebco Hawg Seeker fishing rod and reel combo. The Hawg Seeker is equipped with revolutionary BiteAlert technology, which allows fishermen to see and hear a bite even on the darkest of nights. The technology gives you an extra advantage on the water, so you can reel in your catch on a moment's notice. Pre-spooled with Cajun line, the ultra-tough reel also includes a triple-cam multi-disk drag system that helps you haul in bigger fish prone to jerking rapidly. The 7-foot, medium-heavy rod, meanwhile, features two-piece Z-Glass construction.
Watchmaker, barber, and inventor R.D. Hull founded Zebco in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1949, in conjunction with the Zero Hour Bomb Company. The latter company, which manufactured electric time bombs designed to fracture oil wells, was looking to expand beyond its initial product and its expiring patent. Zebco's maiden reel was called the Standard, and was soon to be joined by the Model 22 in 1953. The Model 11 and Model 33 followed, helping popularize the notion of landing larger fish with lighter tackle. Dozens of products and patents later, Zebco still pays tribute to the legacy of R.D. Hull with every rod and reel the company produces. The W.C. Bradley Company purchased Zebco in 2001, but the company headquarters remains in Tulsa.
