13 Fishing Concept Z Reels are the first to have zero ball bearings. They are high performing reels that deliver excellent casting and accuracy like no other reels. The bearings are high-tech polymer Concept Zero Bearings (CZB). Traditional bearings have moving parts that corrode, break down, and lose their performance edge over time. CZB technology allows the Concept Z to maintain its peak casting performance because the material experiences no corrosion. CZB technology is extremely quiet while casting, offering the angler a completely new experience.

  • CZB - Concept Zero bearing technology
  • Ocean Armor 2 saltwater protection process
  • 22 lbs Bulldog drag
  • 13 Tech EVA handle knobs
  • 6 way centrifugal braking system
  • Arrowhead line guide
  • Beetle wing rapid access side plate
  • Dead stop anti-reverse
  • Japanese Hamai Cut gearing

I've only fished this a couple times, but it casts like a dream and the controls are easy to operate so I can make changes on the fly without hardly missing a beat.

Great Reel for the price
February 13, 2019
Although this reel is $200, the price is perfect for this quality of function. This reel can cast a mile and has the perfect amount of lock down drag, when fishing in heavy grass. This reel is worth the price.

Favorite reel
January 26, 2019
I own many 13 fishing reels and the concept Z is definitely my favorite of them all, other brands included. It’s very smooth, light, quiet and casts extremely well and far. Spooled with 30lb power pro it does great for pulling big bass out of thick cover and heavy vegitation. It’s definitely a good reel for the price point

The reel is very smooth and lives up to the hype. I primarily fish in south eastern Florida. The reel preforms great in the saltwater as long a you take the time to take care of it. The build and components off the reel, if taken care of will undoubtedly last a life time. Routine maintenance is key, a high end good quality reel oil is a must with this reel to keep the polymer disks lubed. The only thing I've noticed with this reel that could be considered a negative, is that the reel tends to be an oil hog. Like a said previously the disks must be lubricated frequently to execute peak performance for the reel. Other than that the reel is a beast. Ive caught quite a few 30+ inch snook on it. Overall very good reel for the money.

A friend of mine told me to pick one up after he was at Icast. So I did. I then offered to host his wedding in my backyard. Not sure I'd recommend hosting a wedding as it turns out, but I would definitely recommend this reel. Getting another one myself in the 6.6 gear ratio this time. I am red orange color blind so the color isn't that important to me anyway, but occasionally it clashes against my shirts.
ProsSmoothness Casting Distance Casting Control Drag Power
ConsColor I think I like their cork knobs better. Might have to swap to those.

Just got the Z 6.6 reel from you guys. Which 13 Fishing pole would pair up with it? Mainly freshwater bass, crappie, smaller walleye fishing. Thx
1 Answers
One of the 13 Fishing Omen Black Casting Rods would pair up nice with the concept Z. Would just need to know which model for what type of fishing you would be doing but your best overall multi-purpose rod is would probably be the OB2C67MH. Here is the link for that rod: https://www.tackledirect.com/13-fishing-ob2c67mh-omen-black-casting-rod.html

Can I use this reel for surf fishing?
1 Answers
You can use the Concept Z in salt water but really isn't much of a surf reel it would be better suited for light inshore salt water fishing.

what are some of the specs on this. ie. line size. spool yrds. drag.
1 Answers
All hold 12# at 135 yards are all weighing in at 6.1 oz. The only difference is the gear ratio which is also the model so the 6.6 is actually a 6:6:1 gear ratio that method also applies to all the other reels.
