Perfect Reel For Finesse Fishing

The Kestrel Elite BFS (Bait Finesse System) baitcasting reel is the lightest on the market weighing only 4.4 ounces! This reel allows anglers to effortlessly cast lightweight baits farther with greater accuracy while nearly eliminating backlashes. Plus, the minimal weight and comfortable, compact size make the Kestrel Elite a breeze to fish with all day long!

Advanced Braking Technology

The FAF (Flyout Arc Finesse) Braking system was designed specifically for finesse fishing. Two half-ring magnetic brakes automatically adjust to slow down the spool when braking is needed to prevent backlashes. As the speed of the spool decreases, the magnetic field inside the spool diminishes and the magnets retract to maximize casting distance. There is also an external fingertip brake adjustment dial for fine tuning spool speeds for smaller baits.

Innovative Spool

The ultra-lightweight BFS shallow feather spool weighs only 5.6 grams! The smaller spool excels at handling the smaller diameter lines best suited for finesse fishing. The shallow spool requires less effort to turn and get up to speed, therefore enabling anglers to effectively cast lures down to 1/32 oz.

Strength Without The Weight

The compact Palm Perfect design (36.5mm height) and magnesium frame reduces the total reel weight to only 4.4 oz. Although the reel is as light as a feather, it doesn't skimp on power. The main gear and shaft are constructed of hard anodized aluminum and linked to a 100% brass pinion gear. A carbon handle and side plates also keep the weight low while maintaining strength.

Advanced Line Guide

The patented LFTV (Low Friction Tapered Vortex) Line Guide decreases the angle at which the line enters the guide, limiting friction during casts. Straighter line and reduced friction results in fewer backlashes and greater distance on casts, both of which are qualities highly desirable among serious finesse anglers.

Great Light Reel

The Kestrel Elite Magnesium Frame BFS Finesse Baitcasting Reel is like a fine piece of jewelry. Every part of this reel shouts quality. It is so light with a super smooth retrieve & exceptional drag. One of my favorite things about it is the ability to cast very small lures with distance that is hard to get from ordinary reels. I hung it on an older light casting rod that I have but plan on mounting it on the KastKing Kestrel Fishing Rod 6'9" Light 3 pcs rod. It should make for one heck of a combo. KastKing, keep pumping out great affordable fishing equipment!!
