Ideal Spinning Reel For Finesse Fishing

The Kestrel SFS (Spin Finesse System) spinning reel is amazingly light, weighing in at only 4.6 ounces. The full carbon fiber frame along with maximum use of 7075 & 6061 aluminum components keep the reel’s weight to the absolute minimum.

kastKing

Strength Without The Weight

The carbon fiber drag washers deliver 10 lbs of smooth stopping power and the reel is built with a 7075 aluminum main shaft & 2014 aluminum drive gear, solid brass pinion gear, and a shallow cut CNC 6061 aluminum braid-ready spool.

Innovative Spool & Reel Rotor

The patented spool design limits line friction and improves casting distance and line control. Plus the aerodynamic reel rotor lowers resistance and provides better overall performance.

Premium Components Throughout

Although this is a finesse reel, the Kestrel Carbon Body SFS reel comes with plenty of power. With double sliding stabilizer rods (D.S.S.R.), an aluminum main gear and brass pinion gear as well as a direct drive aluminum handle, this reel provides anglers with a surprisingly stout tool to target finicky fish in clear and/or highly pressured waters.

kastKing

Small, Light, Yet Quick & Strong

The premium carbon fiber drag washers in the Kestrel deliver smooth stopping power. The Kestrel also gives you a 6.2:1 gear ratio for a tremendous balance of torque and speed with a line retrieve of 28.4 inches per turn (IPT) of the handle. This reel balances well on any finesse fishing rod and is a great choice for targeting bass, trout, crappies and other panfish.

Garbage out of the box .

Drag clicker started to slip on first outing, feels like a plastic reel. Not impressed. Back to ocuma .

Light, smooth and quiet. I took a star away because there is no rotor brake when the bail is open. The rotor moves on its own until it contacts the trip ramp. I still would recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a nice small ultralight spinning reel. I have mine paired with the Perigee II 6’ two piece ultralight rod.

Smooth, well built, and all around great ultralight spinning reel.

I own four of these reels. I have two setup on microlight Kestrel rods and the other two setup on ultralight Kestrel rods. One rod of each combo is rigged for slip bobber and lure fishing. The quality is great and they are smooth as butter. I own a Shimano Stradic Ci4 and these are on par with that reel in terms of smoothness. The castability is great. The drag is silky. If you are on the fence about buying one, I wouldn't hesitate. I own more fishing tackle that a man should but this is the best purchase I have made in a long time.
