KastKing Kapstan Elite High Speed Saltwater Spinning Reel

Size: 5000/Manual Bail
Gear Ratio: 5.7:1

Built for Saltwater Fishing

KastKing’s highest end 100% Waterproof fishing reel at IPX6 level, with up to 15 EverSeal rubber rings to keep water out of the main gear. The KastKing Intrusion Shield System includes labyrinth-style greased sealing grooves that reduce rotational resistance and provide an innovative water-tight seal.


Equipped with 6 double-shielded stainless steel ball bearings that provide a superbly smooth feel even in rough conditions. Plus 3 special-designed polymer roller bearing that is high-strength and never rust, and one 8-pin stainless steel one-way bearing to prevent the flywheel from reversing.

High Speed, Fast & Reliable

Size 3000-4000 offer 6.2:1 faster retrieve, while size 5000-6000 offers 5.7:1 and size 8000 provides 4.9:1 gear ratio for the balance of speed and torque.

Exceptionally Strong & Smooth Drag

This premium saltwater spinning reel is designed with a powerful braking force for hard fighting fish. Sizes 3000/4000 have an ultra-smooth triple-disc carbon fiber drag system and 30lbs max drag; 5000/6000 have a quad-disc carbon fiber drag system with 40lbs max drag; 8000 have a special double drag system, that consist of five front carbon fiber discs and one oversized spool carbon disc, to provide 55lbs max drag. Perfect for saltwater, big game fish.

Aero-Space Quality Gears

Best-in-class HRB 90 high strength aerospace alloy pinion gear with manganese brass gear guarantees extreme durability and smooth operation. These heavy-duty gears are 20% more durable than Aluminum and 95% more durable than zinc alloys. And the high-capacity CNC aluminum spool has a braid-ready structure, so there’s no need to add mono backing when spooling braided line.

Super Strong Aluminum Body

Max-strength CNC aluminum frame construction. Sizes 3000/4000 have a carbon fiber rotor for strength with reduced weight. Sizes 5000/6000/8000 offer a CNC Aluminum Rotor for extra-strength in fishing.

Super Power Handle

The large power handle and knob are machined from solid aluminum to provide incredible cranking power. This spinning reel has the strongest overall design for offshore sport-fishing, deep-sea game fishing, and blue water fishing. Great for monster fish in freshwater also.

One-Piece Bail

The seamless one-piece bail will never get rusted or caught on fishing line.

Attention-Manual Bail Design

To reduce line twist, we always recommend manually closing the bail arm after making a cast when using any spinning reel. However, on the size 3000 & 4000 Kapstan Elite Spinning reels, you can turn the handle to close the bail if you prefer. The size 5000/6000 & 8000 Kapstan Elite spinning reels are a different design. These reels require you to manually close the bail to begin the retrieve.

Solid Reel

Have only used it once and it is a solid reel. I have both models of the Kapstan Saltwater spinning reels and they are great reels.

Strong reel

I got more than 20 bluefish all big than 30 inch this week and the reel make the job I love it

Fluorocarbon line

I recently swapped out the 12-lb test monofilament line on my spinning reel for KastKing’s fluorocarbon line. Previously I only used fluorocarbon for leader material but the KastKing product is affordable. The new line has improved feel for casting and its transparency will undoubtedly lead to more strikes.

Great affordable deep water reel.

I brought the reel a while ago and finally got the chance to use it on a deep sea charter. Smooth, great drag, and a work horse for sure. It was a great buy and can't wait to keep using it.
