AMS Retriever are good and safe.
Zebco are fine spincasters, but need to be rigged safely.
A Thumpertized (http://thumpercustomreels.com/) is even
better, but still needs to be rigged safely.
PM me and I'll explain it all to you.

get a retriever. To me it's the safest way to go. I've had too many close calls with cheap zebco's not releasing the line or it getting tangled on a spin caster. My retriever was the best $70 I spent. I got mine at Bass Pro in San Antonio.

Good luck finding one for that price now. The new retrievers are called AMS Pro Retriever and are about $20 more for base model.
Like I said the spin cast reels are fine if rigged right. There are several
methods of rigging them to be safe, so I can't explain them all here.
PM me and I'll tell you your best option for the gear you have.

Yep those retrievers are good but the new ones are more expensive. When I am not chasing large gator gar I use a Muzzy closed face reel or a zebco. Synergy makes one but I dont really like it. Sullys sells a lot of reels and might have some of the older retrievers is you are interested. Remember with a spinner you will need some type of mount, with a retriever it mounts to the sight holes.

Oh and one more thing, DO NOT TIE your line to the BACK OF THE ARROW! Use AMS slides, they are the best. I have been using them for years and have never had one break or ever lost an arrow because of the slides.

never been too crazy about those zebco style rigs , if they dont release, you can take a bad arrow whiplash ..

i have an old bear hand spool rig on a recurve that works ok, but for big fish we use a boat bumper with a rubber band keeper .
