Good for Bay fishing with stronger line, I reline with 20lb test upon arrival. I would say it would be great for a average 12 year old. If he/she is small and never cast before, the number eleven Zebco reel would be better with a ultra-light rod just for learning. When I was a kid just learning. I practiced in the yard with a heavy dummy lure (no hooks) and this got me ready to be around others.

Best rod and reel I can think of for a 12 year old, great for beginners and adults alike. Should do well under bay fishing conditions.

I contacted Zebco and they stated you can go up to 14 lb. But I have found when I did, it became a little sluggish in retrieval. 12 lb. worked great.

OH YEA IVE GONE SO FAR AS TO PUT 20LB-30LB LINE ON. IT STILL CAST LIKE A CHAMP. I TOOK IT OFF NOW I USE 14LB-12LB ON ALL MY ZEBCOS. 9 TO B EXACT.

You might be able to put heavier line on it, but if you're going to go with much heavier line (17-20 pound test or higher) it'd be better to go with the Zebco733, which is made to handle that heavier line.

Yes, you can. An easy process. Unloose the screw on the other side of reel from handle, pull handle out and re-insert to other side just like you took out of other.
